We Are Emergent

About us


Small By Design.

Size matters. Innovation requires a nimble, down to earth and flexible approach. Emergent works side by side with our clients. We bring the pluck and the process, they bring the industry wisdom. Together we uncover new opportunities in unfamiliar places. Since 2012 we've been helping our clients, large and small, make meaningful change around the world.

Your next innovation is waiting to be discovered in the field, not in an office. We want to help you find it.



Will Skelton

Will's past lives include careers in anthropology, economics, design and education. At Emergent, he draws on them all. He's happiest in the field doing research, notebook full of insights in one hand, local street food in the other.
