Meet Our Team

23 Consult Ltd was created by JT Benade in 2013 as 23 Management Consulting Ltd. The company grew quickly, and in 2019 it was rebranded to widen its service offering, with new people appointed to lead and diversify its corporate objectives.

People are our most important asset, and we are proud that this is demonstrated in the diverse, enthusiastic, experienced and creative people we employ. This is manifest in the high-quality service we provide to our clients. 

We believe that increasingly complex challenges demand people with both deeper expertise, and the ability to engage professionally and personally.

We have therefore invested in exceptional individuals who combine keen professionalism with a broad vision, without compromising the equally important human touch that our clients appreciate. Our skills, knowledge, attitude and creativity ensure that we continue to deliver the best services and outcomes for our clients.
