Our clients

Our business development & strategic consultancy clients

We work with SME's and organisations who are looking for someone to work collaboratively with them to guide or undertake specific pieces of work to improve or change things.

This includes early stage and start-up businesses. We have a good understanding of what is needed and how to make a tight budget stretch.

We are typically briefed by owner/managers, Directors or members of the senior team but our work often means working with staff at all levels.
