We work with leading local businesses, and international clients. Some of our recent engagements include:

Our Values

We adhere to a set of principles that define Discovery.


Our clients’ interests always come first. If we deliver exceptional product and service to our clients, our own success will follow.


We are performance oriented and unafraid to make decisions and be held accountable for those decisions.

People and Reputation

These are our greatest assets. Without compromise, we will operate in an ethical manner and in compliance with regulations, wherever we work, and whoever we work with.

Innovation, Creativity

We never discount the past, but we will constantly strive to find a better solution to a client’s problems. Our clients’ best interests are our best interests.


Individual creativity is always encouraged, but, more often than not, team effort produces the best results. There is no room for those who put their personal interests ahead of the interests of the firm and its clients.


We are a small firm. We want to be big enough to undertake the largest project that any of our clients could conceive, yet small enough to maintain the loyalty and camaraderie that contributes to our success.


We constantly strive to anticipate changes in markets and technologies and we will deliver the latest services, tools and technology stacks to our clients.


We operate in a highly competitive environment and we will grow our business aggressively. However, we will always be fair competitors and will never denigrate other firms.


We expect our people to maintain high ethical standards in everything they do.


At Discovery, we like to bring together people who make things possible for our clients, our communities, and our team.  

If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, enjoy the prospect of accelerating innovation, and helping clients make more informed decisions with technology then Discovery may well offer you that challenge.  

We strive for quality and excellence in our work and recognise and reward extraordinary commercial and stakeholder outcomes in our growing team.
