A critical & supportive friend, strategic counsel or an extra pair of hands, we help you create change in the most effective way, even if it's just to help you get your "ducks in a row". We work flexibly and in the most appropriate way for you.
Combining critical thought, research and analysis with a creative mindset, we help define what inclusive business, market-based solutions, financial innovations and lasting and meaningful change really mean.
We are deliberately industry and issue agnostic.
This means that we sit at the intersection of the public, private and social sectors and draw learnings from those that are doing things well. It's the cross pollination of ideas that brings about systemic change, that excites us.
We're uniquely placed to understand these complexities and bring them together for collaboration, innovation and most importantly, transformation.
WHAT MAKES US SO SPECIAL?
The way we work with you; we want our clients to be challenged but to also enjoy the process, we build friendships for life.
We believe in the change you're trying to create and the world you imagine; we distil down to what you're truly trying to achieve and why, so this stays central to every aspect of your organisation and everything that we do.
We consciously combine critical thinking with creativity and intuition; left brain with the right; challenge with deep connection and collaboration and visions of strategy with aspirations of regeneration.
We help you do what you do, better.
Deep & Meaningful is about a mindset and a belief. It's about being self critical, striving for something that is ambitious and that has the audacity to imagine a different way of working. It's not about being evangelical, but more about having a creative yet practical response to the challenges we see around us and the capacity to do something about them.
The solutions that we design are guided by this.
By asking tricky (but the right) questions to help you get clarity on what you really want to achieve and for whom, and by listening to what you do (and don't) say.
Deepen your understanding by bringing the right people and experiences together so that your decisions are informed and relevant.
Build solutions based on systemic change and inclusive models but that are designed, tested and redesigned - the learning shouldn't stop.
Imagine new ways of working, thinking and doing? Really understand the problem you say you want to solve? Gain a clear sense of what you want to achieve, and what you need to get there? Think about the scale of change from the outset and the systems needed?
