About Us

Having spent most of her career in professional services firms, Ali is keenly aware of the culture and complexities within partnerships. The practical challenges for a firm to transform and prepare for the future of work are significant. If not implemented correctly the consequences can be dire.

In a fight for talent, all the rules have changed. Employees are no longer enticed by the highest bidder, especially those working in professional services firms. The people-related strategies you deploy make a big difference to your ability to attract and retain the best people.

And that’s what we’re most interested in: developing and implementing sustainable HR strategies to create an equitable work environment for every person working in your business.
