Our projects are wide and varied, spanning strategy, organisation, governance, project management and implementation. Recent examples include: creating the National Sport and Physical Activity Policy for Mauritius; developing the Mass Participation strategy for Saudi Arabia; devising a market entry strategy for a global ticketing company; designing strategies and operating models for a number of major UK governing bodies; developing an insight-led organisation for a global sports retailer.
