Navigating our complex world


“We work with you to implement the approaches needed for today’s complex world, and in the process reveal new and novel opportunities that would otherwise not be possible.”

Quintessential’s Founder & Director, Patrick Albina, has worked across the globe in a range of complex multi-national projects. With a desire to return the investment of his lived experiences and knowledge back into the business community, Patrick established the Quintessential team to empower businesses and organisations, by equipping their people with the new skills that are required to deal with the uncertainty and rapid changes in our world.

 “At Quintessential, we believe that when we can see things differently, we can behave differently, becoming more informed and open ourselves up to new and novel possibilities. This mindset shifts creates greater levels of agility, resulting in more resilient workforces, sustainable businesses and the ability to operate more effectively in the grey space of decision-making.”
