How We Work

We are unique as a consultancy, and we know each of our clients is unique as well.

Aware of our clients’ different identities, circumstances, and needs, we execute every project from scratch: our philosophy is that every client requires a customized solution. As opposed to force-fitting previous market knowledge and findings into a general framework or strategy template – we meticulously craft a specialized Market Approach – whether it is for the Iran, United Arab Emirates, China, Thailand, or Indonesia market — to address each of our client’s particular needs and circumstances.

Renowned and evident skills, seasoned with local flavor.

Our professional team is comprised of consultants from each of the markets we operate in; they are seasoned global executives armed with specific language skills, industry knowledge, and cultural understanding in the marketplace to equip our clients with the right advice and business strategies.

The vast-majority of our world-class team of expert consultants are fluent in multiple languages – whether it’s English, Persian, Russian, Bahasa, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Malay, or Arabic – to ensure we have an ear to the local ground. We maintain the highest standards of quality, timeliness, and confidentiality needed by our clients. We comply with a set of strict regulations for NDA and legal agreements determined by our headquarters in Singapore.

Equipped with the right insights, our teams will conduct market analysis, identify growth opportunities, and work with our clients to develop the necessary strategies.
