We advise clients on building exceptional leadership teams to drive their business operations across Africa. We work with them to assess current and future capabilities, shape key roles aligned with their strategy, and articulate the specific competencies required for success before helping them recruit the right talent. We focus on senior-level searches, including non-Executive Directors, CEOs, COOs, CFOs, HR Directors, Heads of Marketing, and CIOs.

We work with organisations to enhance the management of their leadership talent and improve the collective performance of their senior executives. Whether our clients are responding to changes in their environment or proactively challenging themselves to elevate the quality of their leadership teams, we partner with them to achieve objectives that extend above and beyond any single individual.

We work with clients to understand the opportunities and risks they might face in entering or expanding in Africa. We develop knowledge and insights on the individuals, institutions, and issues driving relevant change across the continent and actively engage with key stakeholders in the region. Building on this context, we enable our clients to establish critical relationships to facilitate their market entry and support the implementation of their growth strategies.
