Speakeasy

Our Organization

Speakeasy.work (Speakeasy) is a boutique management consulting firm focused on the design and implementation of organizational change.

Using our signature Change Design methodology, our vision is to move the organizational conversation on change from managing it reactively to designing it proactively.

We do this by coming in early in the transformation process. We help our clients think about their organizational pain points in a collaborative manner; we then make sure they have identified and prioritized the right problem(s) to solve; we get the right people around the table to design the necessary change; then and only then do we move on to implementation and change management. We believe in integrated change and project management.

We value curiosity, empathy, accountability, learning, fun and flexibility.
