A word from our Founder, Nicole Dessainwho we are

I wake up every morning inspired to help organizations unleash their most valuable resource: talent.

After a decade-long, successful career in management consulting and HR leadership roles with international and Fortune 100 companies (incl. Accenture, BASF, BP,  Cisco, Comcast, DaimlerChrysler, Syngenta, UNIQLO, Walgreens, Walmart) I ventured out in 2013 to establish a talent management consultancy with a vision: to re-imagine the talent management paradigm and to re-think how advisory services can be delivered while advancing major societal talent challenges.

Why do I think there is a need for action right now?

I have been following trends in talent for years and the urgency with which it’s been discussed not only by HR leaders but by CEOs and Corporate Boards is astounding and exciting. I encourage you to review our talent.trends report for a unique analysis of what we think the future has in store.

Not only is HR at the brink of disruption, so is management consulting. Our motto: “high quality consulting delivered in a non-traditional way.” Our insights are strategic and our deliverables actionable. We take our clients’ feedback seriously and strive for continuous improvements in value creation.

I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you create sustainable value from your most important asset: your organization’s talent.

Together, we can make a difference.
