EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED.
Never before has the value of a company depended so much on the political environment and the expectations of the public than today. Everything needs to be realigned: Strategy, portfolio, investments and communication with the capital market, the media, political players, staff, society, people, and most importantly – the consumers.
Energy costs are changing corporate strategies, the ESG framework is rewriting a company’s narrative, supply chains are being redrawn in the face of geopolitical risk assessment, and any demands from policymakers will only be heard when a company is trusted by the public.
To meet the challenges these new complexities bring and offer companies adequate solutions we have brought together four consultancies: Strategic Minds Company, Lutz Meyer & Company, Berlin Global Advisors, and Corporate Transformation Advisors are now working together as the Berlin Advisors Group.
The Group galvanises experience and expertise from a wide range – the industry sector, restructuring, diplomacy, communication, politics, and the capital market. This is the team to match your task. At times a few will do, other times a few more – yet the result will be just what will move you forward. This is our promise to you.
