Global Innovation Firm, Consulus comes to New Zealand

Aug 30, 2018 | English, New Zealand, News & Updates

Wellington, New Zealand, 31 August 2018 – Consulus, the Global Innovation Firm specialising in helping leaders, companies and cities transform for Industry 4.0, has opened in New Zealand.

The firm, headquartered in Singapore and presently in the Americas, Asia, Europe and now Oceania, delivers an integrated solution of business strategy, organisational development, and brand experience. Using a proprietary creative method that starts with redefining purpose to redesigning the business and organisational structure to unify for change, its unique tools and insights have helped leaders implement innovative approaches for change since 2004.

The national network of Consulites (Consulus consultants) in New Zealand is led by Michael Dai, who serves as Country Director. The network will serve small and medium enterprises, who make up 97% of the economy, in need of transformation and international expansion through the solution of PurposeCORE – a comprehensive business design solution.

The country has also experienced an acute housing shortage due to a large growth in real estate prices, as well as an increase in rents. The government has committed to delivering better urban development to achieve desired social, cultural and economic outcomes. This is where Consulus and CPG’s PlaceCORE solution for sustainable urban strategies and innovation will be relevant. The work of colleagues in New Zealand will be supported by Consulites from the global network.

“This is indeed a great occasion for the Consulus family to see the launch of our presence in Oceania through our New Zealand network. Our unified approach towards creating purpose-driven leaders, organisations and cities globally has attracted like-minded professionals from across the world.  This latest addition is a logical extension to our global footprint, largely due to the great commitment and hard work by our fellow Consulites, Michael and Sean. 

“With the launch of Consulus New Zealand, we will have the opportunity to help clients there embrace the key elements needed for Industry 4.0, by adopting our innovative and unifying approach to integrating business strategy, organizational development and experience design,” said Shiraz Latiff, Chairman of Consulus Global Network.

Consulus New Zealand will focus on preparing companies and cities to shape a more inclusive future economy in the following areas:

“Kiwis are very innovative. Consulus NZ is here to add value through our approach of purpose and unity so that the future of Industry 4.0 is inclusive and sustainable,” said Michael Dai, Country Director for Consulus New Zealand.

Consulus New Zealand will be based in Wellington, and Michael Dai will guide the team of Consulites located across the country.
