In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, in the expert's mind there are few. ― Shunryu Suzuki.

An unencumbered, open approach is more likely to invite unfettered thinking, creative ideas and novel connections, all key ingredients for genuine development and change.

At Making Meaning we offer fresh perspectives daily.


Our consulting approach rests firmly on the belief that the relationships we develop and encourage are central to project success, irrespective of the project or the industry.

We are human after all, and our need to connect is fundamental.


In today's world we often encounter a tendency to complicate rather than simplify and to separate rather than unite.

At Making Meaning we help untangle, streamline and clarify in order to facilitate access, engagement and understanding.


We build robust, trust-based relationships in which conversations are open, honest and constructive. Facilitating forums where genuine dialogue can occur, we encourage people to listen, share, learn and generate breakthrough outcomes as a result.


Recognising that everything is interconnected, we develop and maintain awareness of the whole system; accommodating different perspectives and remaining mindful of the big picture while zooming in on the small details.


Our work has meaning for us and we respect our clients.

We show this by listening, noticing, and creating space for feelings, thoughts and reflection. And by making commitments we can meet and then meeting them.

Here are six c-words to give you some idea about how we do things.
