Solving Problems, Journeying Together

The name Cadence 8 is inspired by rhythm. The rhythm of turning the pedals is different from one cyclist to the next, even if they go at the same speed. The rhythm of a project is dictated entirely by the client, whether fast and frenetic, slow and deliberate, or somewhere in between.

When we get to know a client, we discover what’s really driving them. Do they want to go on a long-haul journey with their team, or set off at high speed towards a prize at the finish line? Understanding the cadence of a client is at the heart of everything we do. The personal connection lets us choose the gear and the route so we can travel together over the ups and downs, and enjoy the ride.

Coming from New Zealand – a nation of problem-solvers – our founder Rachel was also inspired by number 8 wire. This ubiquitous, lightweight wire is used for all sorts of projects and represents the resourcefulness of Rachel’s home country.

Cadence 8 is all about forward motion, creative solutions, and solving problems together.
