6 Degrees is a boutique business development consultancy that has operated successfully in NZ for nearly 20 years. We came into being based on a fundamental belief that training could be more customised, more enjoyable and more practical. We could do things better. Thankfully our ever growing client base thinks so too. With a team of passionate, clever, experienced and bold facilitators, we seek out opportunities to make a difference within our client organisations. And when a client contact leaves, they usually take us with them!
Our clients tend to be large organisations who partner with us over the long term to deliver customised training, practical consulting and break through one on one coaching for their leaders and teams. Our success is, in part, a focus on maximising the strengths of the individual and teams through experiential learning and facilitating opportunities for change.
Whether your need is upskilling new or emerging managers or supporting more experienced leaders, here are areas we support:
Often we recommend one on one coaching of leaders, small group or natural group learning forums depending on your requirements.
When you have a significant opportunity to grow your business (new or current clients) the 6 Degrees team can offer either proactive training or consulting to fortify your approach to pitching and winning new business. Some of these include:

Whether its small group presentations through to large conference environments, we have training or consulting options to suit.
