Our independent consultants are our strongest selling point. We are not a traditional agency, instead we tap into our pan European network of multi-disciplinary experts on a project basis. This ensures you get the right talent for your specific challenges from an array of fields, including EU advocacy, public funding, and private investments.
We set up a team for each organisation contracting us. This team is responsible for carrying out the assignment and reports to one of our director, who may act as a client relations manager reporting to our CEO or may also be involved in actually carrying out the assignment.
Once you send us your requirements and the expertise you seek, we will do the rest for you. You will receive a detailed proposal and a quote from one of our consultants as to how they will accomplish your assignment.
