Our Story

Why we started

We understand business, clients and talent needs and the delicate balance in-between.

A Rapidly Changing World Needs Agile Consultants

We live in rapidly changing times, having come through the lasting impacts of a devastating pandemic yet with majority of our experience being BC, before Covid; we fully understand the impact of change and uncertainty in business. No professional can be an expert in everything. There is need and value in outsourcing certain key functions to qualified consultants to support business growth and sustainability.
There’s power in collaborations, shared synergies and diverse networks.

Our talent in finding talent is unparalleled

We have a far-reaching network of relationships with decision makers across key industries. Business leaders trust us to bring them opportunities which represent a good fit with their capabilities and ambitions.

Advisory Gaps in the Kenya Market

Organizations need consultative guidance to determine when to embrace change and when to stay the course. Not everything new is better, yet circumventing continuous change runs the risk of the business becoming obsolete. Becoming your trusted People & Culture business advisor is at the heart of all we do.

The X-factor in the Boardroom®

This is our illuminating truth, it guides us in all our decisions and methodology. While undertaking any task, our team is gelled together by the response to the fundamental question, “Is there Equity, Transparency and Kindness in all that we do?”
