We provide management consulting and organisational development interventions alongside training, facilitation and coaching to create transformative change and sustainable solutions for our clients.  We operate on core principles of fairness and equity and are driven by a belief in social justice. We have extensive experience of working with international NGO's, national organisations, social enterprises, governments, donor organisations and corporate clients.  We work with and for our clients, providing appropriate interventions to resolve organisational challenges, manage change and growth, build strong leadership at all levels, increase staff engagement and improve overall capacity to deliver results and impact.

We care equally about the health of the organisation and it's people as much as the bottom line.  We pride ourselves in applying professional and culturally sensitive participatory approaches in all of our work.  We bring positivity, creativity and a client-centred approach to all that we do.
