IMARI Consulting was formed by an ambitious former General Manager, who is focused on creating experiences that shape business perception, through the belief that design adds value and a strategic approach is as important as execution. Defying the old adage of small business start-ups failing within the first three years of business, we coach entrepreneurs every step of the way. From consulting, goal setting, business plan writing, website creation, bookkeeping and payroll services, budgeting and financial management, funding and many others.

IMARI Consulting provides the entrepreneur with these vital resources and ensures they have the knowledge to utilise them to build and grow a successful business.
