Periplum was founded in 2008 by Change Manager, writer and editor Amanda Crawford.

We do Change Management strategy and implementation, copywriting and editing.

We think people are the centre of all successful change, from digital to workplace transformations. We’ll work with you to understand where you are and where you want to go, then together we can chart the best course to get there.

What does ‘Periplum’ mean?

The word ‘periplum’ was first used by poet Ezra Pound to describe a map of a piece of land drawn from a sailor’s point of view at sea. While many maps are drawn from above (a birds-eye view) a periplum presents the land as it would look from the deck of a ship.

So we use ‘periplum’ to refer to how change looks from where you stand, not from an abstract perspective detached from your everyday business experience. Just as Pound navigates his poems, we’re standing right beside you, seeing what you see and moving toward the same point on the map.

What drives us

We are driven by a strong desire to help organisations navigate digital, cultural and workplace changes for the best people and commercial outcomes.
