We are determined to create meaning and to make a positive difference.
We achieve this by applying our talent on behalf of influential organisations and individuals who share the same vision and allow us to build a critical mass of balanced business leaders for their companies.
We do this with passion by seeking out, recruiting and developing these rare leaders who, like us, are not just motivated by adding to the bottom line but aim to create visionary organisations, economic success and a more ethical and sustainable society.
We are recognised for our strong and purposeful focus on quality. We are open and transparent.
Put simply, people who have the foresight to develop their business rather than just expand it use our knowledge, our passion, our experience and our networks.
We have created a successful, well-connected firm that is active worldwide, with an international client base, through our cross-border, cross-sector and cross-function expertise.
At the heart of our approach is the balanced leader, which we define as:
‘a uniquely talented and qualified professional with natural and trained brainpower, social sensitivity, and an inner drive to shape society through virtuous entrepreneurship’.
By ‘virtuous entrepreneurship‘, we mean:
‘being able to motivate, and being motivated to do well by doing good and creating economic power through focusing on ethical, economic, cultural, environmental and aesthetic issues’.
After 20+ years of experience we have identified seven core qualities that allow talented individuals to truly make a sustainable difference to the world. These qualities lie at the core of our interviewing and assessment processes, and help us to meet the requirements of our clients more fully.

Doing well by doing good is an integral part of who we are.
We believe that profitable companies have a social obligation to invest in their local and wider communities. In the past few years, we have contributed funding and support to over 30 charities, and will continue to do so in the future. In keeping with our objectives of helping entrepreneurs and talent succeed, we are proud to support FINCA International in particular, a charity that provides financial services to the world’s lowest-income entrepreneurs, more than 70% of whom are women – so they can create jobs, build assets and improve their and their children’s standard of living.
We also volunteer time and expertise from within our company as well as engaging clients and candidates interested in joining us to support our charitable work.
