Creation

We operate at the harmonic intersection of Western Science and Eastern Philosophy. Our work is based on data, knowledge, and neuroscience with a strong influence of intuition, connectivity, and mindfulness. We are constantly evolving and creating our methods and philosophy.

Joy

We believe in joy as a powerful indicator of fulfilment. We keep close what makes us feel happy and peaceful, checking in with our joy to guide us in every interaction. We gauge success by an old Egyptian proverb ‘Did you find joy in your life? Did you bring joy to others?’

Freedom

We are untethered. We exist to unchain the traditions hindering you from working where you are most inspired. We believe in the freedom of self-expression and the basic human rights to inclusion, love, and belonging, especially when it comes to your career.

Intuition

11:11 is a powerful numeration representing clarity, guidance, and enlightenment. It's an auspicious set of numbers in numerology, and represents a powerful moment that sparks change. In the spirit of 11:11, we use our intuition to guide us through all aspects of our business in order to make quality, conscious decisions that change lives.

PROSECCO

The bubbly beverage is a playful representation of simplicity, luxury, and savouring the moment. We honour our ridiculous side. We strive for bliss, pleasure, and everything in between—and we think your path to purpose should include all of the above.

We’re not your average HR service—clinical interactions really aren’t our jam. What you can expect from our targeted headhunting, skills assessment, and cultural fit interviews is passionate expertise and real results.
