About Us

We believe that strategy alone is meaningless unless it delivers measurable impact. This belief is rooted in the pioneering vision of our founders Hanne de Mora and Nils Hagander who disrupted the consulting industry in 2002. They introduced a new consulting model that harnesses the expertise and skills of Independent Consultants to deliver tangible results for clients.
