Who we are

We are a highly experienced team of consultants

As a group of independent consultants we offer a range of services that compliment each other. We enjoy working collaboratively to bring our individual skills and knowledge together.  We provide tailored services and can work closely with you to ensure that we offer a service that suits you. We often use technology to work at a distance which saves precious money and resources and can also help you to take advantage of digital media and services to do the same.

Our main goal is to help you as an individual, business or community group to tell your stories to each of your different audiences, whether that is a potential funder, customer or collaborative partners. All of us have a range of messages to get across and can have diverse targets for those messages. We can help you define and identify your audiences and tailor and refine your messages so that you can engage in an ongoing dialogue with them.
