We help our clients understand their competitive environment.
As strategy consulting and intelligence experts, our people help our clients make the right decisions, manage political, security and media crises, and grow their business and operations.
Our broad-based expertise spans from strategic information collection and analysis, competitive intelligence and reputation management through to market penetration strategy consulting.
We support our clients as they expand and grow their businesses, and help them manage crises along the way.

Our operations rely on consultants who are recognised experts in specific regions, subjects (economics, finance, politics, communication, intelligence) or industries (energy, aviation, infrastructure, technology, health, food processing).
