What our clients say about us.

The Change Makers Tasmania were able to synthesise our ideas and break each idea down into easy-to-achieve, step-by-step componentry. The techniques were simple to follow but immensely helpful because they allowed us to start with broad ideas, then condense them in a targeted way. By accurately identifying our market and distilling the specifics of our product we could then move swiftly towards achieving our goals.
Gideon Cordover, Heart Foundation Tasmania
The lean thinking approach you took us through Marisol, was absolutely necessary and really helped us to view our business from a different perspective. It is so easy to get stuck ‘in’ the business and not look at what you are actually trying to achieve and how best to achieve it. This process has helped us to determine who are customers really are, and what job we are trying to help them get done! Perfect!
Jennifer Robinson, Sprout
