We are management consultants, specialists in marketing, communications
and media

Our culture is a little unusual.

Most of us are engineers but people say
we seem more like creative people.

We prefer fresh debate to tired models,
and believe that great solutions
are created together.

We talk to people at every level,
not just the management.

We know all the trends
but we don’t use trendy jargon.

‘Management consultancy’ describes our work,
but not our style, which is unpretentious,
conversational, and very hands-on.

And our roots are in Sweden – a small market
that demands effectiveness, efficiency
and sustainability to succeed.
