Philanthropic Initiatives

Government & International




Media & Communication


We provide a full range of services, from media and events, to business and philanthropic strategies, diplomatic initiatives, re-branding, institutional capacity-building, and project management. Behind all this is our process of assessments and consultations, research, networking, prioritizing and clarifying – to generate your unique and coherent strategic prism, through which your vision, potential and impact can be maximized and sustained.


Above & Beyond!

After decades of successful management and innovation, we determined to find the clients who inspire us, and help them flourish even more – and more widely – in ways none of us might predict at the start.


Beyond our cababilities to design and implement projects and institutions, our real strength lies in helping you refine and express your strategy, and doing whatever it takes to realize it anywhere and in every way ("globally") – never to make it our strategy. This is about you!


We are passionate professionals who want to share your passion for your project, and your inspiration. This website reflects our core approach – sharing, partnering, exploring and understanding each other's priorities. The story we tell here is the same story we tell ourselves, and we want nothing less for you!
