Whether you are in a profession considered high risk or running a business located in complex environments, we draw on our own professional experiences of having worked in the UK and some of the most recent conflict zones, post-conflict reconstruction areas and emerging markets of the Middle East, Southern Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe. 

We don’t just sit in our offices claiming experiences of these locations, our Partners and Consultants regularly travel to them as well.
