Our book is named TESORO.

TESORO [ teˈzɔro ] means TREASURE. It is a term used to express affection, appreciate mastery or reflect richness. 


For us, TESORO expresses a commitment to uphold our values. It affirms our commitment to understand and acknowledge what matters to you. For us, the word and the firm TESORO pays tribute to that which you treasure. 

@TESORO, we believe there is no one treasure. We each have a symbolic treasure chest, consisting of items that are essential to having a quality of life along with those that offer pleasure, purpose and excitement.


Organizations across all sectors play a significant role in making those treasured elements. Sometimes they need to make tweaks or changes in how they deliver their products or services. There are time when they need to rethink the social and sustainable benefit their treasured elements offer. And there times they need help in bridging the divide from where they are to where they want to be. That's where we come in.


Whether the change is being driven by technology advancements or an intrinsic call to be more socially and environmentally sustainable, TESORO works with organizations to build the tools needed to bridge this divide while nurturing a culture of inclusion, openness and high performance. In a sense, we see ourselves as bridge-makers. 

1. Excellence

We commit to doing our best, all the time. We embrace a spirit of lifelong learning and continuous improvement.

2. Impact

We want to share our capabilities, experiences and time in service to your goals and a socially sustainable future.

3. Respect

We will honour the individual and all that makes them uniquely themselves.

4. Gratitude

We know you have a choice with whom to partner. Thank you for choosing us.


Simply put, we believe in humanistic values. 


There are many values that fall into this category, covering our behaviours to our perceptions, from our thoughts to our attitudes.


@TESORO we have chosen to highlight four values that form the basis of how we work. ​
