The Q

In 2011 we wanted a single letter to represent our brand and what we offered. It needed to demonstrate professionalism, strength, intelligence and trust. The best letter that seemed to fit was Q. It’s the Q that provides our customers with the confidence and trust in the delivery of our services.

QRisk is a part of Group Q NZ limited.


Fixes problems and issues in New Zealand and abroad through risk and security consultancy services, and educating by engaging keynote presentations and bespoke training.

Training that educates and empowers people through training packages with its foundation modules in situational awareness.

Q values


We aim to build it with our clients quickly. We think it’s the highest value you can have. Part of that trust is developed by listening and understanding your needs, communicating openly and delivering. What we say we will do. You can trust that.


Alignment in thinking and values is key. We don't necessarily need to agree on all matters and healthy tension is good - but alignment in desired outcomes is gold and necessary. We like to work with organisations that think the same way.

No fluff

This means, no waffle, no bollocks, no false statements of expertise, no writing of a 20 page document when we can write it in 10. We are a low touch, high-impact consultancy company.


This is dodge, this isn't. We love the ad. We enjoy working with people who are like minded, believe in change and have agreed outcomes. We take our work super seriously but not ourselves. We'll have a laugh on the way and that's all dodge!  (note - we don't drive dodge cars - we just love the ad)

Our imagery

We have deliberately chosen landscape and nature pictures to reflect our services and draw the connection to Risk, Security and Training through our main imagery. There is New Zealand, Australia and international shots to represent our backstory and our ability to deliver globally.  In today's corporate world we think our images are refreshingly different. Let us know what you think.
