Our clients say...

"AltusQ enabled me to clarify my exit expectations, provided me with the capability to create and implement plans that more than doubled the valuation multiple of the business….and I got a succession plan that saw me go from working seven days a week, to three days and ultimately to a complete exit and complete freedom to choose my next path in life.”

~ Michael Wade, (former) owner of Earth Data

"AltusQ's leadership program has been a life changing process for me."

~ Participant, Qld Dept. of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy (12-month leadership program)

~ Chris Hill, CEO University of Europe, Laureate Digital
