Strategy to reality
How we work
- Our ambition is to positively change the world, one move at a time.
- Our mission is to co-create the future and to generate sustainable value and growth in an increasingly complex and unpredictable world:
- Our methods spark debate, create shared ambition, and co-create practical and enduring solutions.
- Our approach drives clarity, generates momentum and cultivates the strategic capabilities critical to success.
We work with you to future proof your strategy, untangle your wicked problems, and capture the pivotal moments for change.
In a nutshell we take you from strategy to reality…
Deep thinking; broad thinking; different thinking; thinking beyond current constraints and paradigms
Removing taboos and forging deeper understanding and broader perspective
Conscious, practical experimentation and evaluation; in the real world and in simulated future worlds, to drive continuous innovation
Aligning and co-creating to drive positive momentum in the navigation of wicked problems
Our 10 guiding principles:
It’s all connected (as the ancient mystics predicted & quantum physicists discovered)
There’s a pattern to everything
It’s there for everyone – and everyone should have the chance to participate
The truth is typically somewhere in the middle
Start where you are – take a big dose of reality and forgiveness for past mistakes
Nothing is taboo – courageous conversations are critical
Ritual makes habit, makes reality
Best fit often trumps best practice
To flit between think | do | be and imagine | play |become is to become agile
Be a force for good – only do what is ethical and makes a positive contribution to the world
Our logo is based upon the tesseract, a shape used to represent the isolation and manipulation of the fourth dimension – time. We like to play with time a lot and we’re in good company…
uses the tesseract as a physical representation of time that can be freely travelled through
A wrinkle in time
uses the concept of the tesseract as a wormhole to a fifth dimension – a portal from one area of space time to another
The Marvel Universe contains a tesseract that has the ability to teleport objects from one point in the universe to another
People always comment on how good she is at joining the dots in complex situations and identifying impactful levers for change.
With an insatiable curiosity about just about anything she has what some might describe as an addiction to books. One of those annoying people who have 4 or 5 books on the go at any one time.
As a long-suffering West Ham United fan she knows what it takes to dig deep. When the going gets tough she bounces back with renewed belief and vigour
Her future self wants to have a small-holding with Llamas. For now she enjoys nothing more than snuggling up with her dogs, a good book, and a glass of St Emilion, surrounded by family and friends.
With a genuine obsession for customer experience and a focus on delivering exceptional quality you could say she has a bee in her bonnet when it comes to service excellence. When she’s working on something it just has to be the Bee’s knees!
There’s nothing better than a get together over good food and wine, where she enjoys whipping up delightful treats and family favourites but always likes to ask, can this be done better? Let’s mix it up a bit…
Not afraid to turn her hand to anything, she likes to explore her creative side… You’ll find her with a paintbrush in hand re-designing a room or perhaps helping her children build a 500-piece Lego construction. If it involves creating something pleasing she’ll give it a go…
Her future self wants to have a beach hut on the Mediterranean coast. For now, she enjoys nothing more than outdoor adventures with her family and roaring winter fires.
Interested in all things sporty he has dabbled in most sports and enjoys watching any. His punditry is legendry; when watching sport on TV he has an irritating knack of saying exactly what the commentator or studio pundit is just about to say, just before they say it! A qualified personal trainer he encourages everyone around him to move more. He’s also rather a tidy darts player … with lightning speed mental arithmetic
Lucky for some; he always considers luck to have been on his side and typically sees the bright side in most situations. His banter keeps the mood up and feet firmly on the ground
a music lover with an eclectic taste across all genres, he cannot resist the urge to move when the music starts (he has cleared dancefloors with his moonwalking). Unfortunately, his singing abilities have not reached the same heights and he is affectionately known by friends and family as ‘5 keys Seunarayan’ for his ability to sing any tune in 5 keys simultaneously.
Hot, hot, hot is how he likes his food. Dried chillies or hot pepper sauce is added to pretty much everything he eats – be warned if you’re tempted to steal food from his plate!
She always an eye on the goal, defending where need be. Her netball prowess and regular umpiring activities means she is well-versed in recognising the strength in team diversity and the unique contributions of every player. Her focus is on how to bring out the best skill and capability in each position for every situation – beyond the duration of the game, come rain or shine.
Full of energy and meaningful purpose, she is curious about all things ‘spirit’. Her level of connection can’t help but raise the spirits of those around her no matter what’s going on
It’s not all about the shoes … decent, meaningful conversation to find brilliant ideas and challenge old habits is where she’s at … but the shoes do matter!
Coffee is her happy place. She likes all sorts of coffee, strong or weak, but doesn’t do decaf (that’s just sitting on the fence)
