Our mission is to be the strategy talent and leadership partner for organisations in Africa, who value the people agenda and who seek to realise the value of fair and professional practices.


Bringing people to life at work.

Through partnership with leading global consulting firms, we offer best practice and best-in-class service. We understand Africa, where competition for the best people is intense, organisations need advisors that have market context, act both at local and global levels, and have proven tailored and sustainable solutions. We believe this is the only way of being your trusted, strategic talent advisors, as we, together with our partners, strive to develop Africa through its people.

“You just have to ask the 'right' questions to bring the organisation to the place that they really want to be or desire. I think for me, coaching has been very strong in that. It was a learning experience, learning about yourself, learning from the other participants, the faculty, the course content. It's what I call, 360° learning.”

– David Bagenda, EABL

And with the Executive Search, there was more support and engagement with more stakeholders in Career Connections rather than depending on one person."
