Our Work in education

We believe that education is the key to powering our economy and advancing our society, and without a healthy education sector, we’re lost. That’s why we decided to specialise in building the structures, processes and strategies that drive growth of this sector.

Our work’s practical and designed with clear outcomes in mind – to deliver the skills that will generate jobs and human capital, advance and commercialise research, and foster a sustainable culture of learning and innovation.

Innovation & transformation of educational institutions

We work at an institutional level to gain insights, craft practical approaches and strategies, and create internal alignment. We champion the introduction of technology and blended learning.

Government-industry-university collaboration

We help tertiary institutions and industry to solve problems, build research and learning capacity by way of innovation, incubation and advanced human capital development, in support of governments’ ICT research roadmap.

Institutional development & funding

We work with stakeholders to establish sustainable business models, and create the structures required to fund new education and training institutions; as well as improving existing ones.

Consulting work

We work with investors and policymakers, entrepreneurs and CEOs, government and the private sector to establish alliances that help our clients achieve their goals. Our collaborative process aligns interests to establish healthy, interdependent ecosystems in which partners work together efficiently and productively.

From the simplest assignment to help a client take advantage of tax incentives and grants, to building complex public-private partnerships, we assemble the right team as catalysts for sustainable growth.

Organisational strategy & transformation management

We help organisations identify and overcome latent organisational prejudices and remove barriers to harmony in the workplace, and to use diversity to increase effectiveness and efficiency.

Communications management

From market research to crisis management, media strategy to brand-building, we position our clients in the best possible light, and help them achieve clear, bold and transparent communication.
