Are you the right client for us?
Are you ambitious for your local economy? do you need help with some really challenging work or in understanding where to go next? Want someone you can trust just to get the job done, the way you want it, and to be relied on to deliver?
Why we are different
We work across functional silos. We can take the evidence base and research, and understand and communicate the policy, strategic and delivery implications. We can turn this in to priorities and advocacy, and influence local stakeholders and national politicians and civil servants. We understand delivery, and how this can be shaped to meet local challenges and opportunities. With our knowledge of public and private sector funding, we can turn this into winning bids for funding and resources.
