About Mojoco

Jill Ellul founded Mojoco in 2013. Having worked at a senior level in the Pharma industry for 3 decades, leading a European business innovation team, Jill recruited the services of quite a few agencies over that time as she said: “with somewhat mixed results”.

After years of thinking there had to be another way, she decided to practice what she preached and took a fresh approach to deliver what she had been seeking from external vendors.

Jill has brought together a team of associates who represent the best talent in areas such as Training, Innovation, Facilitation, Coaching & communications.

This group of trusted Associates is complemented by a range of diverse partners who are available to support clients with anything from event Photography, digital artists, illustrators, and actors!

The Mojoco mission is simple:

To deliver 1st class training, facilitation, and professional support in a cost-effective, professional, and innovative manner.

Understanding your needs

Everything we do starts with a conversation. We dig into your issues to fully understanding what you need and work with you to develop the best fit approach and solution. We believe that its this collaborative approach coupled with our passion for what we do that keeps clients returning to us time and again.

Flexible approach

We don’t do a one size fits all. Our flexible approach allows you to decide on what is the best option dependent on time and resources available. You might need our services from 1 hour to 1 year; we flex to meet your needs.

Mojoco methodology

Using Mojoco’s proven innovation methodology, we work closely with you to deliver results that help transform your thinking around the specific challenge to unlock new opportunities for impactful business results.
