Our Story

When life gives you lemons, we’ll bring the sugar and make lemon meringue pie.

About Us

At Lemon Co, we are on a mission to transform the modern workplace. We do this by helping organisations and individuals to build capability and infuse wellbeing and mindfulness into everything they do.

While our Changemaker in Chief, Julie, has been in the People, Culture and Organisational Development space for 30+ years, Lemon Co bounced into action mid-pandemic in 2020 when Julie identified that organisations needed to change the way they work to keep their people productive, energised and engaged in a sustainable way.

She knew the businesses that would go on to experience success and continue reaching ever-more-ambitious targets were the ones that valued their people and were open to embracing the transformation. Those people are our kind of people.

That’s why Lemon Co exists. To help you and your people embrace change.

We do that through a commitment to evolution, rather than demanding (or expecting) revolution. By making incremental, gradual improvements (there is no such thing as fast change) to individuals and the systems they’re a part of, we can boost capacity and capability.

Here at Lemon Co, we call these improvements “nudges”.

Because big, sustainable results? They’re simply the result of lots of well-planned, well-executed nudges in the right direction!

Are you ready to start nudging your business, your team or yourself in a new direction?

We’re ready to go all-in with you and make it happen.

Meet our Changemaker in Chief

I’m Julie Cockerill, founder and CEO of Lemon Co.

I could tell you about my 30+ years working in People, Culture, and Leadership with corporates across APAC and UK/Europe, but what I’d rather tell you about is what I like to do with lemons — of the organisational variety.

In short? I like to help them transform. I believe when we can strategically embrace transformation with curiosity, creativity, compassion and honesty (with a zesting of humour for good measure), we’re able to start gaining traction and begin reaching ambitious growth targets.

I appreciate how challenging that can be, however, when you’re stuck juggling competing priorities and a lack of capacity and capability either within yourself or your business.

That’s why I’m passionate about collaborating with organisations and individuals to help them gain clarity on their goals, build resilience and general well-being, and feel empowered to lead change.

These ingredients are fundamental for high-performing individuals, teams and successful businesses—which is ultimately the recipe for lemonade we’re all after.

While helping others embrace change is what I’ve devoted my career too, I’ve also navigated change of my own following an ADHD diagnosis at the age of 50.

After working through the range of emotions (relief for having an explanation to so many of my struggles, combined with frustration that it took SO long to get that answer) I’ve been able to combine my knowledge and personal experience to begin supporting and empowering other neurodivergents in the workplace through my ADHD group coaching program.

As I always say… hand me a good lemon challenge and I’ll grab the sugar.

Here’s to always seeing what’s possible.
