About us
Formed by Rod Howells, we are a team of highly experienced professionals with a passion for helping organisations enhance their innovation, growth and change capabilities.

We provide a wealth of expertise in innovation, change, leadership and management development.
We work with organisations to help them innovate, change and develop through facilitation, mentoring and training. We work with individuals and teams to help deliver organisational goals - usually focused on a specific work project or challenge. We make sure that new projects and services are really wanted, technically feasible and financially viable.
We are results focused and work with our clients to support both project delivery and people development.

As well as the core team, we can draw on an expensive associate network to find the right person to work with you to solve your challenge.

Meet The Team

Process and people expertise - from concept to reality

We believe that being successful at innovation is about more than just a taking part in a great idea generation session. It is about having the appropriate strategy and processes in place to make sure the right ideas are reviewed, refined and realised.
It is about giving people the skills, confidence and resources to deliver their ideas. It is about creating the right environments where ideas can flourish, be explored and evaluated. It is then practical implementation and doing this in a way that is repeatable and reliable.
