About Us

Pantala is a consultancy helping leaders and organisations change. We tackle complex issues for/with our clients: trust in leaders and brands, purpose, reputation and communication. When the status quo isn’t working and traditional leadership, business and consulting models are being disrupted, that’s where the Pantala team thrives.

The Pantala team members have deep specialist expertise: trust, reputation, communications, change, digital transformation, performance and innovation.

Our combined work experience ranges from politics, public policy, non-profit leadership, leadership training and development, energy transformation, mining and resources, banking, marketing, story-telling, management consulting, higher education and business process improvement. Our international experience is also immense: between us we have decades of living and working overseas, including South America, Africa, Europe, North America and Asia.

Our clients represent different sectors from non-profit to professional services, startups to bricks and mortar. They are united by the following characteristics:

  • purpose-led,
  • impact-focused and
  • engaged with their community.

Depending on their level of maturity, we can help them in different ways:

  1. design purpose and strategy,
  2. enable community engagement and/or
  3. influence or support action and accountability.

At Pantala we focus on generating positive and impactful change. So we help organisations as well as leaders seeking training and mentoring, strategy development or leadership and execution from our team of experts.

Our Collaborators

Pantala works with the following collaborators to deliver complex and integrated solutions to our clients.

Our name

Pantala is a genus of dragonfly. The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolises change, the perspective of self-realisation, the evolution to mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life.

The dragonfly undergoes a series of moulting and stages in its lifecycle, evolving into an adult with an agile flight that exudes power and poise. The dragonfly can reach an amazing speed of 70 kilometres per hour, hover, fly backwards, fly straight up, down and on either side. It can do this while flapping its wings a mere 30 times per minute, while most other insects flap their wings 600 to 1000 times per minute.

The drangonfly's complex metamorphosis—its evolution into a powerful being—is the inspiration for the transformation philosophy adopted by Pantala.
