We are a boutique economic development consultancy firm. We don’t just offer solutions for economic development, we change the way our clients think about it. Bringing together a wealth of experience, we deliver a bold, rigorous, and integrated vision of economic potential. We challenge assumptions and leave our clients with the knowledge and capabilities to succeed.
Challenging the norm
In a rapidly changing world, it’s not enough to follow the accepted wisdom. Our thinking is grounded in research and experience – but free of preconceptions. We never shy from challenging even the most cherished beliefs or strategies, if the evidence is against them.
Understanding the interactions
We understand the complex interactions between factors that influence economic development: people and skills, infrastructures both hard and soft, business and finance, knowledge and education. By thinking creatively about all these factors, we help clients integrate them and deliver maximum value.
Ensuring practical outcomes
From a foundation of deep expertise, we develop strategies focused on practical outcomes – not neat theories. We embed new capabilities and new ways of thinking, and help our clients tackle their challenges – present and future, more flexibly and effectively.
No agenda. No conflicts. No one to answer to but our clients. We have no external shareholders, and no vested interest in one solution over another. So our clients know they can rely on us for impartial, objective thinking.
Offering the best of both
We are a new consultancy, founded by a highly experienced team and backed by an established business. So our clients get a flexible, creative and focused team, as well as a depth of knowledge, insight and resources.
