Go Well Consulting
Evolving business for the sustainable future
Go Well Consulting was founded to evolve business for the sustainable future.
We’re here to evolve business for the sustainable future by guiding organisations on the journey to a circular, regenerative, and inclusive economy.
At Go Well Consulting, we work with businesses to identify innovative opportunities, providing new ways of thinking and strategic action plans. We empower businesses with the tools and skills to deliver meaningful impact and communicate sustainability with confidence.
Imagine an economy that operates in harmony with the laws of the natural world.
Imagine an economy where businesses are profitable and meaningful jobs are created while regenerating our Earth and it’s communities. Imagine a world where every human being has access to food, water, shelter, medicine, education, work, and community. A world where our economies, our communities, our businesses, and our environment are all thriving. At Go Well Consulting, this is our vision for the future.

He is passionate about the idea that we can find ways to heal the planet while helping people prosper and has joined the Go Well team to deliver that. His words to live by are “smile before your teeth are gone” and in his spare time you will find Jack waist high in the Tongariro river fly fishing to his hearts content.
Frankie McKeefry joined Go Well Consulting after practicing corporate law at one of New Zealand’s leading law firms. Whilst there, he was consistently on his partners’ backs about (among other things) being more sustainable, driving their clients towards making a greater impact, and using their KeepCups! Before this Frankie spent time working at an international organisation in France and at the New Zealand Law Commission. Frankie brings a critical, legal lens to Go Well alongside an inquisitive and sharp intellect, a quick wit, and a passion to play a key role in achieving a sustainable future.

Hazel Davies is a graphic designer and design educator and a people person. She is a self proclaimed generalist and designs things in all matter of mediums and sizes. With Go Well, Hazel visually represents the ideas that help to communicate key messages to our clients and communities. Hazel didn’t realise how lucky she was growing up as the daughter of two Northland hippies and took organic gardens and composting systems for granted for many years! These days she is fighting body corps for the right to have a worm farm and trying to grow food on a balcony garden.
