Our Beliefs

We offer world class counsel in a personal setting. We work with our clients in a unique way to help them achieve their goals.

Our experience has shown us that encouraging individuals to show courage is often the route to reputational success. We believe fortune favours the brave. We are lucky to work with some very courageous clients who seek to effect change in the world.

We also believe communications in the digital era demands simplicity. We believe public relations is merely about relating to the public in a straightforward fashion.

We rarely ask a client to do something we have not done ourselves. We understand what it is like to be a leader, to have good times and bad, to take public positions and how it feels to be on the front page of newspapers or in the interviewees’ chair.

We believe in authenticity and clear language, we believe in listening to our clients.

We have come to realise there is value in returning to the kitchen table...

Our Partners

We work by partnering with the people who come to us, often for the long term, sometimes for a shorter time.

When you talk to us we will often suggest you speak to our existing or past clients on a very confidential basis. We believe in letting others speak for us.

We have a network that has stood the test of time. We often use that network to bring in other partners to assist clients where necessary.
