Sample of Consulting Projects

  • Food Rescue

    Area: Not-for-profit
    Year: 2016

    Our team was brought in to advise on the non-renewal of key sponsors, threatening the financial sustainability of the organisation.

    Through a forensic analysis of business data, our team diagnosed the problem and formed a solution. We implemented a digital data collection workflow, and a custom application that has lead to significant productivity gains. Further, we advised on a restructure of the organisation's sponsorship, and assisted in the exploration of new revenue sources.

    "I always felt they were 100% committed to my time... extremely enthusiastic about our project and kept me informed from the start."
  • Dress for Success

    Area: Not-for-profit
    Year: 2016
