“We’re delighted that our move
to the U.S. has been so successful and we’re looking forward to
sharing more of our experiences
and knowledge by continuing to
work with interesting people and
with more great businesses in
the U.S.” says Andrew Morris,
VP Delivery, USA. “We deliver exceptional business results
through deep insight and expertise, working alongside your people to bring the best out of them,
helping them to solve your most
intractable problems.” Morris sat
down with Consulting to discuss
the firm’s financial performance.
Consulting: What were the
main factors that contributed
to your firm’s exceptional
Morris: We have brought UK
and European retail expertise to
the US, where our clients have
told us that what we offer is dif-
ferent and refreshing. Our ability
to field a small consulting team,
which works with a much larg-
er client team, transferring our
skills and partnering with them
to design and deliver change en-
ables us to scale the work quick-
ly. By working with the executive
team right through to the front-
line staff, we help to create a line
of communication and action that
runs throughout the organization,
often giving a voice to those who
have been hidden.
Consulting: How is this year
shaping up for your firm?
Morris: We continue to grow in
the US and the UK. We were delighted to win the UK consulting
industry’s most prestigious award,
“Best Change Management Project” for our work with Walgreens

Consulting: How would you
describe your firm’s outlook
for 2018? Where do you see
the most opportunities?
Morris: The outlook is rosy.
Our strength is in helping large
organizations with a dispersed
workforce to achieve transformational change. To that end, we are
constantly in conversations with
prospective new clients in the
US and the UK. In an uncertain
world, where the only certain
thing is change, organizations
need to be able to embed the ability to change into their DNA. We
call that being ‘changeable’. That
is a huge opportunity both for our
clients and for us.
Consulting: What would you
say are your firm’s biggest
challenges in 2018?
Morris: Our biggest challenges are to keep growth at a steady
speed and to continue to recruit
great people to our team so that we
can continue to deliver the quality
that we have become known for.
Consulting: What does being
named one of Consulting’s
Fastest Growing Firms mean
to your firm, your employees
and your clients?
Morris: We are thrilled! It’s a
badge of honor, recognizing all
the hard work that we have done
with our clients, rewarding both
them and us for delivering exceptional results. Our employees
are proud and excited to work
for a company that has been recognized for its achievements on
both sides of the pond.
