Our vision is to be Australia’s largest marketplace of subject matter experts in people and organisational development

Essemy was founded on the premise that today’s leaders value the expert more than the institution they represent, and that traditional consultancies and training providers are struggling to meet the fast-changing needs of industry.

Essemy has two key offerings;

Off-the-shelf workshop solutions, where organisations are able to ‘Choose their Expert’ and book directly through the Essemy platform.

Customised solutions, where we collaborate with our clients to understand their needs and ensure they engage the right delivery team to facilitate business outcomes.

By providing access to experts and skills, in a fast, agile and transparent manner, Essemy is providing Industry and Government with significant efficiency gains to their procurement processes, whilst offering the support and peace of mind that comes with a large provider partnership.

Essemy is a continually growing team of experts, currently with over 100 high calibre subject matter experts across the country. Essemy experts go through a stringent quality assurance process so that clients can be confident that they are getting access to the best talent and solutions for their people.

How it works

The most critical element of any face to face learning experience is the experts’ ability to transfer knowledge, engage and facilitate outcomes. Yet, all too often training fails to meet the diverse needs of individuals and businesses as real choice is lacking in the training marketplace in both access to specialised workshops and true subject matter experts.

We are challenging the status quo by building a marketplace where the choice is in the hands of the buyer. Essemy provides direct access to booking workshops developed and delivered by the experts themselves.
