ABOUT EMERALD CONSULTING

This is our story

We Love What We Do

Before we ramble on about our awesome products and services, we’d much rather tell you our story of where this all started and what we’ve experienced along the way. It is after all our clients that form a huge part of our story.

The Emerald Journey

When we look back at the past 20 years, it becomes evident that without our incredible clients (many who’ve become friends over the years), this journey would not have been possible. It has been such an awesome ride, with many goals reached and speedbumps overcome, all while serving our loyal clients with what we do best.
