Ambitious for your local economy?
so are we.

We help local leaders translate their economic ambitions into winning advocacy and solutions that get funded.

We work all over the UK – from the Highlands of Scotland to Wales, Bristol, Teeside, North East England, Gloucestershire, London, Cambridgeshire and Sussex.

We love challenging assignments, complex opportunities, intractable problems. Our vocation is to help city, region and local economies succeed and for prosperity to be sustainable and shared.

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 into 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.

From Our Clients

There’s one simple rule we follow for clients: we listen.

“The overriding thing is that you know who you are getting and that you’re working with a person. We could have easily got one of the bigger companies but we wanted Glenn.”

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council

“We relied on Glenn to bring clear thinking and creative suggestions to the most complex of issues and I can recommend him without any hesitation to bring great added value to all local economic development assignments.”

Cathey Garner, Commissioner, LSCC Growth Commission

“We work with a lot of specialists but Glenn is the one we have on a framework agreement.”

Herttfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership

“Glenn certainly proved he is amongst the best in class at providing consultancy advice, assistance and thought leadership for local and regional economies. Glenn combines a safe pair of hands, a thorough knowledge of economic development and a talent for developing ambitious and creative strategies. His writing and communications are highly impactful and media-friendly.”

Prof Greg Clark, CBE, former Chair, UKIC
