About Nowlab

At nowlab we know that great conversations can do much more than just create great business. Great conversations create great relationships, they breathe life into us and all that we do. They help us express ourselves, connect us with our dreams and ambitions; they bring people together, solve problems, develop strengths and explore opportunities. We also know that conversations can be designed to help us get the most out of life.

Everything we do is designed to help you have the conversations you need, with the people you need to get the most out of your business, yourself and your life.

Why the name Nowlab? And Why Change Conversations?

Now – Because this is the place where everything takes place, right now in the living present. This is where decisions are made, contracts are won, relationships are born and learning happens. Becoming aware of what is happening in the present moment is essential for exceptional business.

Lab – Laboratories are places of curiosity, innovation and understanding, they are where the future is found. Developing cultures of curiosity, innovation and understanding is the only way to develop a sustainable competitive advantage.

Change Conversations – Because every decision you make, every innovation, every leap of faith takes place in conversation. Understanding how you are in conversation and learning to design conversations that work best for you is a key to great business.
