Chess Board


Strategy is nothing without capable leadership.  Leadership is redundant without a strategy to guide it.  That's why we focus purely on these two disciplines.  We help medium and large organisations develop and achieve their strategic goals through collaborative, leader focused consulting.



We are a small company - a husband and wife team that bring together SME and corporate leadership experience, underpinned by academic knowledge. The benefit of being small, is that you'll always know who you'll be dealing with; you'll get the partners every time.

Creating a strategy is challenging in any business environment.  But with your industry expertise and our strategic methodologies, we can create a powerful vision of your future and a road map to success.  We don't believe in a one size fits all, templated approach to strategy.  Everything we do draws on experience and theory, choosing the best methods, and collaboratively putting them in our clients' contexts to achieve a strategy that is feasible, achievable and that meets company goals.

Leaders are the conduit for any successful strategy.  We can assist in diagnosing key leadership development areas and work with leaders within client organisations in a training and executive coaching capacity, to ensure that your strategy, vision and values cascade throughout the organisation and deliver results both in organisational effectiveness and on the bottom line.
