What We Do

Consulting for
Business & Society

Businesses increasingly value ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) in their operations. We are specialised in supporting the SOCIAL potential to yield optimal and sustainable results.

Investors are on the look-out for business opportunities in developing markets. We are THE preferred social risk management partner, bridging the gaps between your business, governments, civil society and local communities. We help make it happen.

Training, Assessment & Coaching

Training & Coaching

Our in-house, customised training and coaching addresses both your internal organisation (its processes and tools), as well as the external aspects of effective engagement with societal actors. Our trainings are highly interactive, include practical exercises and cases, and use proven concepts, processes and tools to focus on the specific challenges faced by your organisation.

In 2024, in response to the increasing need for addressing the S in ESG in the Gulf Region, we launched the Social Performance Academy in Abu Dhabi.

Tech Advice

Technical Advice

Companies understand the value of benefitting from subject matter experts in as-needed basis. Technical assistance, when properly delivered, is a cost-effective way to drive improved operational performance, which reinforces a learning culture in your business.

Our technical advice can be delivered in a multitude of ways that best suit organisational needs. We offer workshops with key staff on specialised subjects, prepare CSR strategies and policies, train and mentor staff on technical skills and develop leadership potential. With humour, patience and tact, we help our clients understand the connections between public and private drivers, and social and commercial aspects of doing business.

Interim Management

Interim Management

Our philosophy is to make ourselves redundant by providing robust training, coaching and technical advice. However, if needed, we can provide interim leadership support in critical roles during times of change.

We have the experience to manage transitions and set up teams to deliver new work streams. We recommend personnel structures, recruit or train suitable local staff, design policies and procedures, and ensure a smooth handover to incoming managers. With our collective technical and management expertise, we provide the right people to sustainably deliver results.
