About Us

Since 2002, Z.A.ZEN Consulting (Pty) Ltd has been providing strategic solutions for government organizations and international organizations and corporates, and non-profits, among others.

Our service is backed by more than 25 years' international experience in adapting to different fields, cultures and issues. By listening and understanding, we help clients identify their own solutions.

Our consulting approach is highly interactive and based on intuitive questions and active listening. As a result, many of our original clients are still working with us today.

Z.A.ZEN works with expert consultants and service providers for the handling of larger scale projects. Through a close-knit team of in-house team members, associates and partners tailored to a client's needs, we can provide:

We listen to our clients

Z.A.ZEN is known for frequent and responsive personal contact with clients, listening to client's needs, creative and unusual approaches, understanding complex, multi-level issues, doing as we say, saying as we do, and creating strategic solutions that work. We tailor project teams with specialized independent consultants, researchers, graphic designers, writers and other creative individuals and companies to meet the specific needs of our clients.

“Energy, passion and commitment are what Tamiko and the Z.A.ZEN bring to the work they do.

We provide solutions-based approaches

One of Z.A.ZEN's key strengths is the ability and flexibility to assist in the development of strategic business plans for all sizes of organizations. Our approach to strategy is that it must make sense, be simple and be executable within an individual or organization's capabilities and circumstances.

“Sozosha Co, Pty has been working with Tamiko Sher of Z.A.ZEN since 2006 in promoting South African hand-made arts and crafts to Japan. Over time we have come to share Tamiko’s passion for creating jobs and income for many people in South Africa, and appreciate her service which allows us to bring beautiful hand-made products to gladden the hearts of Japanese people.”

Seiko Mihara, Sozosha Co, Pty Planning Manager

We have an entrepreneurial way of doing things

Z.A.ZEN's approach is non-traditional, and resonates with a business coaching and mentoring model, which often translates to workshop facilitation. By assisting groups in clearly identifying their own objectives and ways to meet those goals, Z.A.ZEN provides strong strategic planning facilitation.

””I enjoy working as a Team Leader and member of the team at Z.A.ZEN. The projects are exciting and Tamiko is committed to giving team members opportunities and the freedom to try new things. We are put into positions of responsibility and get to be really stretched and learn with the projects.”
