At the core of the world's most successful business strategies is a powerful Single Organising Idea™(SOI®) that defines purpose, unites people, directs actions and builds positive reputation. We help our clients in the public and private sector position themselves for the future by identifying, defining and bringing to life an SOI® that delivers both social and financial benefit.

We have many years experience employing our proven approaches to create practical solutions that help our clients achieve their objectives. We have worked in over 40 countries across 5 continents and have successfully completed programmes for more than 80 organisations.

We thoroughly understand the international development context and thrive on making a contribution to its aims by cutting through complexity to identify the value and purpose of organisations. Our projects in the sector have ranged from helping position start-ups such as a financial inclusion initiative for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to rebranding INGOs like US-based Global Communities, to advising government agencies such as BTC (Belgian Development) and delivering strategies and organisational development solutions to businesses such as DataTorque, a pioneering New Zealand tech firm that helps small economies collect taxes.

In 2015 we were selected and trained to become the UK's first certified Shared Value Affiliate Consultancy. Conceived by Michael E. Porter of Harvard Business School and Mark Kramer of consulting group FSG, Shared Value is a management strategy that is focused on creating business value through actively addressing social issues.
