If you’re staying still, you’re falling behind
When change is tough, it’s helpful to have an independent, objective expert who’s able to see the bigger picture and map out your change journey.
To change deep-rooted workplace practices and behaviours takes a structured and engaging approach tuned to each organisation’s DNA and sensitivities. Our experienced experts, trained in AWA’s unique neuroscience-based change framework, work with our clients to develop innovative change management programmes that enable a smooth transition to new models of work.

Trusted by leading companies
“Leading a major change management project in complex international organisation is challenging undertaking. I knew it would involve multiple stakeholders, take wide-ranging collaboration and that we would need some expert, confident experience to help steer and deliver it. AWA has provided that.”
"I have no hesitation in recommending AWA to any organisation, no matter how big, as they have demonstrated to us that they have the capability to meet any challenge."
“With AWA’s help, we've been able to create a transformational space which supports our hybrid working approach and transforms our culture and ways of working to become more agile and innovative. This helps us recruit and retain the best talent, which supports our core purpose of funding research to save lives. None of this would have been possible without the help of AWA.”
“Along with data and insights AWA bring practical processes that involve everyone from grass root team members to the most senior executives, developing effective change to meet all parties’ goals. They have become trusted advisers around not only workplace matters but in behavioural change.”
“AWA’s detailed and in-depth engagement process allowed us to reach out to all levels of occupants and really understand staff perception on what will be needed to create a new working environment that would align with business requirements and where changes in behaviour, management style and space might be appropriate.”
How we deliver change
We help organisations to start afresh
When people have been thinking and doing things the same way for long periods of time, habits become neurologically ingrained and make change challenging – both individually and communally.
We have the tools and the talent to transform firmly established workplace practices.
