Helping to manage the unexpected

Crisis preparedness

Crisis preparedness

We work to improve the capacity of organisations and their employees to manage unforeseen events. Through trainings, exercises and direct coaching we strengthen the crisis awareness of organisations, teams and individuals. We bring the perspective of the employer-employee responsibility in preventing, handling and following-up on crisis situations, especially those working in high insecure settings.

Organisational management

We help organisations and companies to improve their structure, organisation and leadership on an individual as well as organisational level, with a specific attention to preparing for the unforeseen. We are experts in non-profit organisation management, with a good track record of improving results while maintaining the social aspects of the organisation. Our clients include government agencies, private companies and non-governmental organisations. We are hired to conduct trainings and exercises, filling management gaps and providing support to managers and their teams.
