Frequently asked questions

We're often asked what it is that makes us different.
Are you just consultants or are you do-ers?
We're do-ers. A lot of consultants will tell you what to do, but we'll actually roll up our sleeves to do the work in-country with you.
In which countries do you have experience?
We've done this for 25 years. In that time we've worked in 34 countries from North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, and Asia Pacific.
Do you guys do marketing or sales?
We're all about generating new revenue. This means executing a sales plan that converts customers, which often requires an omni-channel sales and marketing effort. We do whatever is required to generate revenue for our clients.
