Our services in detail:
Climate change and sustainability present opportunities to generate revenues and cut costs. Embedding sustainability strategically at the heart of an organisation can meet short-term objectives, while creating long-term value. We work with executive teams to create an overarching vision and goals, identifying the most relevant issues to the organisation, the opportunities they offer and the best ways in which to communicate messages and engage with stakeholders. We provide organisations with strategic advice, constructive challenge and advocacy on sustainability.
Our integrity, thoroughness and insight enable us to provide informative, reliable research, along with robust and practical recommendations for your organisation. Our close partnerships with academia enable us to draw on joint interests and knowledge, and provide evidence based and socially beneficial policies and programmes to address climate change challenges and sustainable development. In addition we undertake general and social research, market intelligence, monitoring and evaluation. We also offer access to partners for outreach programmes, research validation and routes to effective dissemination.
We are experienced in designing and facilitating meetings, events and conferences across the private, public and third sectors. Working collaboratively from the outset, we determine key outcomes and develop a focused, yet comprehensive agenda to encourage lively, proactive participation and maximise engagement from all attendees. Our facilitators impartially guide groups, organisations and stakeholders through the processes of developing a shared view of issues, thinking creatively, evaluating options, making choices and decisions, while committing to action. This role might range from designing and facilitating a single event through to providing guidance across a series of events.
Partnership and Network Development
Collaboration is essential to catalyse smarter solutions that address both the speed and scale of the sustainability challenge. To address this we lead a number of cross sector networks across the East of England. These networks enhance collaboration, dialogue and the sharing of best practice, by convening leaders, experts and practitioners who contribute knowledge, experience and perspectives to regional issues, working together to address these. Our networks (link to network page) also provide a platform for supporting sustainable growth investment within the area.
Conferencing, Training and Events
We have considerable experience in managing events, including leadership dinners, conferences, education seminars, exhibitions and road shows. We take meticulous care of everything: developing the agenda; organising and briefing speakers; inviting and registering attendees; securing appropriate venues; onsite event management, communications and post event evaluation and report.
Bid and Tender Preparation
We provide a professional tender writing service that supports organisations in maximising growth. We can work as an independent bid team, or to support an existing team to identify opportunities, provide advice, develop responses and prepare funding bids and tenders ready for submission. Our extensive network puts us in an ideal position to develop collaborative project bids.
Programme and Project Design, Management and Evaluation
Working with clients to identify strategic aims and develop timely outcome-focused programmes. We have the experience to deliver an impactful course of action that manages risk, time, cost and quality. We provide the leadership to maintain control and transparency across the process and the passion and enthusiasm to drive value. Our approach provides clients with a high level of confidence and assurance.
