Governance & Risk

“Corporate Governance is in troubled waters.”

With corporate failures prominent in the headlines, the words “corporate governance” have entered the mainstream media. The expression “failure of corporate governance” has become commonplace, and the names of culprit companies and directors have become all too familiar.

Clearly, something is wrong. Traditional, compliance-oriented approaches to corporate governance have left many in troubled waters. Trust has been eroded and company performance has suffered.

We believe great governance begins with people, their choices, their decisions, and their voices.

We work with you to bring your leadership and governance to life.

Workflow Optimisation

“Consultancy and SaaS solutions to enable the automation of information-centric, data-heavy business processes.”

From SMEs to global brands, our enterprise-class systems are used by both public and private sector clients and open the door to evidence-based decision-making, reduced processing times, greater consistency, improved customer (and patient) experience and lowered operating costs.

Robotic Process Automation, Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence.

Quality, Value, and Sustainability

“Your organisation creates value in many more areas than just the balance sheet; just ask your employees and their families.”

Together we will identify and expose value creation across the multiple ‘capitals of value’ that have direct as well as intangible meaning for your shareholders, institutional investors, and other key stakeholders.

People may even read your Annual Report, and those who do will talk about it!

Time to Think - The Thinking Environment

Our clients have grown accustomed to releasing their freshest and most independent thinking when working with us in a “Thinking Environment™.”

Thinking together, you will uncover and test out as many scenarios, options, opportunities, strengths, and outcomes as you need to nail that lightbulb moment.

Strong Corporate Culture and Staff Engagement

“People who use their strengths every day are six times more likely to be engaged on the job.”

Teams that focus on their strengths are 12.5% more productive. We use strengths coaching to enable you to lead and improve performance with greater ease and confidence.

Change begins with individuals, and spreads through teams. Our team profiling and coaching module enhances the performance of individuals in teams, and of teams by revealing all the talents and strengths available to them.
