"It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends."

~ Dumbledore in Harry Potter

Flexibility is very important to us and to our valued partners & clients. We operate typically in one of the following 3 engagement methods.

Project & Task

Would it be a new project or a problem you would like to solve within your company. From a concept review or brand and portfolio strategy or customer segmentation and channel strategy. The method is very simple: we listen and define the task and process toward the desired outcome.
The completion of such tasks normally varies from 4 to 16 weeks.


This works for organisations with a major gap which would cost a considerable amount to fill on a full time basis or electively the business needs a professional judgement & opinion on key resolutions.
Our retainers give genuine business quality outcome and findings to the cost charged.

Coaching & Advice Sessions

This is a reasonable alternative that functions admirably in the event that you need to attentively bounce off vital ideas and thoughts, company changes or even to get a specialist view on the track you are going to set out on from a business perspective.
This works over all levels of hierarchy of any company, whether you are the General Manager or a newly recruited employee.
