Our Promise

We empower our clients with smart leadership insights on individuals and the wider management team. This is conducted through a comparable analysis of the leadership team's probability to achieve the investment hypothesis on a stand-alone basis, against the upper quartile performers or amongst their peer group. This helps to align the leadership team's capability and enables the successful delivery of the business's value creation plan.

Empowering Investors and Management Teams

We see investors and management teams as one, sharing a single objective through different focuses, disciplines and roles. The interests of both the investor and the management team are aligned, and we work to maximise the probability of success through leadership within private equity backed businesses.

We understand the different challenges and leaders required at different stages of the business, as it develops from founder or owner-led to working as part of a team within private equity for the first, second or third time.

Through the insights that our proprietary platform develops and the awareness of each situation as held by our clients, our work empowers and supports leadership design, development and change.


Our work demands respect for our objective, our clients, the opportunity, and ourselves without hierarchy. Each is as important as the other.


Our focus is on creating a positive impact through our work and with everyone we meet.


As we are often among the first external team members to be trusted with the news of a potential leadership change, our trustworthiness is critical.


We own our own actions–individually and collectively.


Creativity and solutioning are at the heart of our firm. We are in the richest phase of innovation.


We are committed to providing and promoting equal opportunities, diversity and inclusivity, through our actions and our methods.
