Launched with the purpose of co-piloting the reinvention of some of the world’s most interesting and influential organisations, we’re a collective of ex-big firm consultants, unified by a simple ideal – more meaningful business transformation, delivered as consulting should be.

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

With experience drawn from many successful (and unsuccessful!) change initiatives, we believe that programme ‘gates’ or checkpoints (however formal or not) are an invaluable discipline on any major transformation effort. In the evolution of any significant change aspiration there is one such gate – ‘Gate One’ – when a bright idea is first made ‘real’. A compelling vision becomes an executable reality; a ‘concept’ becomes a ‘programme’.

WHAT’S IN A SYMBOL?

Our ‘Ripple’ icon graphically brings to life the force multiplying ripple effect which we believe is at the heart of every successful business transformation. It speaks to the journey, in partnership with our clients, to deliver change that counts. It encapsulates our DNA, which is a blend; a combination of founders’ mentality, tempered with humility and a brilliant team spirit – which means we genuinely relish taking complex situations apart, and designing something better. The colours reflect the care, passion, loyalty, humanity, empathy, warmth, approachability and dynamism we hold true to our core.
