We strive for excellence every day, it's literally our name

At Praesto we put great emphasis on our core values and recognise them as the keys to success. They define who we are as a company and make us distinctive. They guide us in the decisions we make, in the work we do and in our behaviour towards each other, our partners and our clients.

Our values are embedded in every one of our consultants, ensuring that we deliver outstanding solutions, advice and support every time.

Praesto (Latin):
– “to be outstanding”
– “to excel”
– “expertise…”


The calibre of our consultants is proven in the level of skill, knowledge and capability they bring to every project. We remain devoted to constant innovation and improvement and look to add value at every opportunity.


How we do business is as important as what we do. We seek to build trust-based, lasting relationships with our many customers by communicating openly, honestly and transparently.


We are committed to exceeding our customer’s expectation at every opportunity. We never shy away from a challenge and we endeavour to deliver the perfect solution each and every time.
