About Us

Who We Are

Prism Business Consulting was founded in 2006 as a specialist management consultancy focusing on business and social transformation. Our core business principles are based around Diffraction and Convergence.


  • Breaking down the intangible or insurmountable problem into its visible and discernible component parts
  • Analysing the good and the bad in each component
  • Assessing the impact on the organisation and its direction


  • Determining a new focused direction
  • Identifying how to change each component to align most effectively with the new direction
  • Streamlining the organisation to achieve maximum output against the objectives
