                          What Make Us Different


 

Our Intellectual Power...

Most of our Associates were trained in the world's best universities with a record of academic excellence. In course of their careers thay have brought creativity and innovation to their fields of endeavor to make a difference for their clients and beneficiaries. While they have the intellectual discipline to bring real results on the ground they also have the wisdom and humility to know that there is always more to learn as the world evolves.

Our Global Reach...

Our Associates have collectively lived and or worked in over 160 countries in the world. They have advised and worked not only with the top leadership in Government and business in these countries, but also with middle and junior level officials and managers in both the public and private sectors and helped to shape some of the policies and institutions in these countries  today. But most of all they have interacted closely with the people including civil society. They have come to know and respect the culture and sensitivites involved in doing business in these countries. No matter what the country or region, we have someone who has been there and knows it well.

Our Results Orientation...

We balance intellectual ability with pragmatism in order to get the needed results on the ground for our clients. What works in theory often fails in reality. We have learnt this the hard way. What is ideal in public policy or in a transaction structure may be quite unrealizable in light of the political economy or the personalities in a deal. We know how to temper the ideal to make it work in the real world. We are not just consultants who write a good report. We get the job done.

Our Business Principles...

If you do business, consult, subcontract or work for us, we would like you to know that what we say on a Monday will still be good on the Friday. Fair and truthful dealing is not only good ethics for us it is also good business as it reduces risk and provides more certainty for our vendors, clients and investors. This improves our returns in the long run.

Our Populism Expertise...

Where we are different from most other advisors, is that we have the experience and capability ( from the special international development experience of our Associates) to address the question that arises in almost every transaction or policy reform ( and FDI or offsets situation), namely, what happens to the people? We have the experience and knowledge from over 60 countries around the world to offer best practice win win solutions to this issue.
