management consultancy practice operates at boardroom level in
the private sector and with policymakers and senior
administrators in the public sector.
We will help implement recommendations and provide
assistance to get over short-term crises, but we seek always to
retain a focus on strategic and policy issues.
Our work is 50:50 for
major companies and institutions and for government – local,
national and international.

rationalise, or situations where progress needs to be
re-started. We test and

offer practical experience, theoretical insights, and planning, modelling or management skills – usually in the same person – to
help the organisation move forward with confidence.
