Great collaborations result in great work. Through discovery, design, implementation, to hand-off, we work shoulder-to-shoulder with our clients and their stakeholders to define shared goals, facilitate engagement and demonstrate the behaviours that produce better, more aligned and impactful service. We take on a limited number of projects at one time with clients that understand our value and the approach we take to this work. Being selective means we can give the right clients exactly what they need – our focus and time.
We have curated recent samples of special projects initiated, ongoing or concluded in 2018. Our complete CV can be downloaded here.
