Our consultants are very comfortable with ambiguity and uncertainty. They recognise that they are not employed to provide standard solutions or expert advice, but to help our clients deal with complexity in all its unique forms. They are comfortable as part of a team and have a highly integrative approach to getting the very best out of people for them to develop solutions to their own challenges. Above all, they are attuned to generativity and a highly appreciative approach to dealing with clients at all levels.
He is a skilled facilitator, futurist, educator, mentor and coach utilising appreciative and generative approaches. Martin enjoys the challenges presented by complex issues, breaking them down into simpler systems which can be managed in helping people move forward positively.
Martin is a Fellow of the RSA and a member of Policy Voice at the Institute of Directors.

Alan has worked as a change agent in a wide variety of organisations in both the public and private sectors and has spent many years helping managers identify the right questions, focus on the key issue and then facilitating executive alignment around an agreed solution.
He has a broad range of ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ skills: from data analysis to executive coaching. His experience as a consultant and facilitator has led him to observe that people, sometimes quite low down the organisation, often have great insights into issues and potential solutions, and moreover it is important to understand their position when planning implementations.
Alan is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.
