We define what impact means for you

We help you understand and appreciate the larger landscape that you thrive in. With a systemic lens, we map out which interventions and partnerships are required to realise your goals. We help with stakeholder management.

What we do

We build future proof organisations
A strategy or way of working should be more than just words on paper. It needs to be felt throughout the organisation. We ensure all your people are on board with your new mission-driven goals and ambitions. Making them personal for your employees is a recipe for success.

We raise the bar radically
We connect business and society in meaningful ways. By taking you out of your comfort zone and introducing you to different worlds. This process forms the fertile ground needed to discover new opportunities and turn your business into a force good; attract new and diverse customers; find and retain the right talent.

We push you ahead of the game
To discover new business opportunities that benefit society and keep you ahead of the game. Together, we build the necessary partnerships, strategies and business models to turn them into reality. Ensuring that the personal missions of your leaders are aligned with the organisation’s collective mission.

What makes us awesome

It's not a job, it's our vocation.

We connect different worlds; the unusual suspects. We take you out of the office, and out of your comfort zone. Close to home, and sometimes far away. Always confronting and unpredictable.

Mission Water

Our client
MegaGroup, a water solutions company.

The challenge
How do we ensure our purpose (Bringing water to life)
is felt and lived throughout the organisation?

What we did
Built a strategic partnership between MegaGroup and Amref Health Africa (an NGO).
To make MegaGroup's purpose tangible. Together they are developing solutions to 
improve access to water and sanitation in rural areas of Kenya, contributing to
disease prevention.

The result
The organisations have collectively set-up a social enterprise.
To this day they are working towards their bigger goal:
improving the lives of and creating a better future for
1.5 million Kenyans.

Watch the documentary above to get a better idea of this project.

We made a cool poster to showcase the different steps we took together with MegaGroup and AMREF. Check it out!
