The benefits of working with BiG…
Authenticity, independence and challenge
One of BiG’s guiding principles is ”Authenticity in all things”. We challenge discontinuity and “elephants in the room”. Our independence is our most precious asset.
A tailored approach delivering tangible results
For BiG, facilitation is far more than someone at the front of the room. We understand that an experience is not enough – you must ship product and shape just the right amount of structure to progress.
We’ve been there and we know what it’s like!
BiG are experienced change leaders, programme architects and business consultants. We understand the realities of complex organisations and the challenges and barriers to driving successful change because we’ve experienced it at the coal face.
“BiG interventions enable programmes to break down the silos, throw out the politics and remove the limitations of hierarchy. Give people the chance of true collaboration and you can achieve strong, tangible results for the most demanding of change programmes.”
