About us

Organisations thrive when people thrive.

Out of nearly 30 years in leadership research and consultancy, we guide corporations to respond meaningfully to the calls to action captured within the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, whilst improving overall company performance. We focus on specific symptoms of cultural friction – high levels of employee churn, pay disparities, allegations of harassment and employee dissatisfaction metrics, for example – and assess how such internal issues may manifest internally and externally to an organisation and negatively impact its overall commercial success.
