Our Expertise & Strengths
We’re a team of friendly business advisors who specialise in business development, entrepreneurship, innovation, start-ups, strategic marketing planning, digital marketing, social media, and public relations. We help all kinds of organisations in different industries in both the public and private sectors.
Our partners have specific experience helping organisations to venture and tap into overseas markets. We have a strong global network of contacts working in business and government, and we bring people together to help our clients fulfil their international ambitions.
We can work with large corporations, SMEs, and higher education institutions. As a result of our tactical engagements many of our clients and international organisations have enjoyed success in markets close and far, and have been able to scale up and grow resiliently.
We can support our clients in different countries including the UK, Germany, the Gulf Cooperation Council states including the UAE and some of the more challenging markets like Iran. We were involved in setting up, establishing and growing the Dubai Centre of City, University of London and Cass Business School in the Middle East.
We lead, steered and set up with the City, University of London, Dubai International Financial Centre and the Dubai government, took ownership of the project, and made the organisation’s aspirations a reality.
Have you considered setting-up, diversify or taking your educational institute and programmes to new markets? We can apply our expertise, engage our resources, and support you to assure a seamless market entry for coherent growth.
Our team is a roster of senior advisors who lead the way in modern strategic business thinking. We’ve been involved in organising, leading and supporting several trade missions, official visits (including the Lord Mayor of The City of London’s annual visits to the Gulf region), and our partners have penned numerous articles on business management for The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Reuters, and the Shanghai Business Review.
Some of the companies our team have worked in include London Business School, Dubai International Financial Centre Authority, Jotun Group, Best of Biz, Volkswagen AG, Union Beton GmbH & Co.KG, Advanced Institute of Management, Government of Dubai, Capital Club Dubai, Cancer Research UK as well as Choice Hotels International.
We’re also members of prominent networks such as Chatham House, Oxford Entrepreneurs Network and World Traders. One of our partners was the founding director and head of the Dubai Centre at City, University of London, and another is a strategic marketing expert who delivers international campaigns in diverse sectors.
If you are keen to tap into a reservoir of knowledge on international markets, or simply need a sounding board to better test and gauge your assumptions, we are here to support and help you. Our stellar track record – real hands-on experience of getting the job done – is what we promise to you.
Getting into a new market is half of the challenge; the other half is the on-going support to develop a resilient and sustainable growth. Whatever your sector and whatever your goal, we can make it happen.
