About us

We are a 20 year old boutique Business Development house that concentrates on increasing new and repeat sales performance.

Our solutions rely on using hard data to create a reasoned approach to proactive business development.

Our clients range from Blue Chip to smaller companies across all sectors including Professional and Financial Services, Manufacturing and Distribution. In the Public sector, we are a ‘Quality Assured’ solution provider for Business Link (their highest level of certification) and are accredited with the LSC.

In the private sector, we have also passed the Due Dilligence processes of The Daily Telegraph, Accenture, Investors in People, BT, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Royal Bank of Scotland, and KPMG.

As a result, we compete quite happily with ‘top twenty’ professional services companies and the more old fashioned research houses, but with overheads that make us attractively competitive.
