What we do

We help embolden leaders so they can understand fully the new risks. Our goal is to stimulate them to identify unthinkable threats and capitalise on new opportunities.

Bespoke Engagement

Every engagement is different. We don’t do ‘templates’. We do tailored research. As outsiders we are catalysts and advisers as part of a deeper transformation process. The best change agents are from within: we work to inspire them.

We are well-known for our skilled facilitation at public and confidential events including conferences, workshops and awaydays. Every participant is stimulated to move safely beyond their comfort zones. We prepare intensively to ensure that key issues are raised, however difficult.

Uncovering the Unthinkable

We highlight the causes of dramatic shifts in public opinion and expectations. We highlight how it will impact your organisation. We call it ‘pushbackism,’ not just ‘populism.’ We help leaders better appreciate what the public does not like or understand.
