Business strategy – turn your vision into a plan for sustainable growth

The Volta Consulting difference

Volta Consulting is bridging the gap between profit and purpose to improve the world – one small business at a time.

There’s been a long-held belief that it’s up to big business or government bodies to fix problems, create social impact and drive change. 

As Volta’s founder, I am shaking up the status quo. 

Many small business owners understand they have the power to create a positive impact on the community or environment in which they operate. But they’re not sure what to do, or how to get started – they’re seeking guidance. I  launched Volta Consulting to help with that.’
