We operate as a group with flexible, receptive task teams that are deeply familiar with the home markets of our clients. This puts us in the enviable position of being able to support projects across national borders.


Complementing our specific consultancy focal points we have been networking with trusted partners for many years.


In the interests of sustainable know-how transfer, we lecture at universities, attend and participate in forums and discussion panels, while maintaining close cooperation with professional associations in commerce and industry.

Advisory board

Exploiting contact networks, expanding horizons and learning from mutual best practices. Dedicating their expertise to our Advisory Board are entrepreneurial personalities from a diversity of business sectors. At the core of their activities is the periodic sharing of knowledge on current management issues and trends. Over and above this, the Advisory Board Counsellors act as sparring partners.
