We work with clients who…

  • are only innovative when your customers ask you to be
  • concerned you can’t see what your R&D team is achieving
  • are kept awake at night by fear of failure and risks to your business
  • are focused so much on today that plans for tomorrow are overwhelmed
  • are not confident enough to invite partners into your business (and definitely not competitors)

hgkc have helped us invent a whole new way to manage and communicate about our innovation projects – BAU, “the pond”, Blue-sky, horizons, Game Plans and RACI techniques have enabled us to focus on the key projects and direction for our innovation at TasteTech.

John Dray, founder of Cloud Genius shares his insights on running a remote business during the lockdown and the opportunity this created for developing new products and services.  John has a uniquely empathic approach to solving problems and helping his customers focus on what matters most to them - the relationships with their customers rather than their IT. Our conversation is peppered with stories, practical tips, and a little laughter.  John has kindly created a Tip Sheet too which can be found on Cloud-Genius website and on our hgkc blog.

The Founder’s Mentality - Chris Zook & James Allen

The Founders Mentality: How to overcome the predictable crises of growth

Every great business founder has a story to tell, but in reality, every business has two stories: the external story that plays out in the marketplace and is about shareholder returns, market share, profitable growth, acquisitions, awards; and the internal story that is about building the business, the culture of the workforce, systems and processes, learning from experiences - good and bad, change and opportunity, the emotional roller-coaster of wins and losses.

Chris Zook and James Allen discovered, through research, that when companies fail, 90% of the time the root causes are internal.
