Culture change

Removing business jargon and building a more direct & authentic client communication for this top 4 global consultancy.


Our client is a global consultancy firm that advises the leadership teams of the world’s most successful companies and is a world leader in audit and advisory.

Corporate firms can struggle with effective and direct communication free of business jargon. This can have a negative impact of how clients view these organisations, reinforcing a negative impression of inflexibility and lack of innovation.

Our work to help the business adopt jargon free communication dovetailed with their global rebrand to position our client as an innovator for entrepreneurs and businesses aimed to address this.


  • The commissioning team were aware that a new approach was needed to engage a highly skilled and demanding workforce and it had struggled to influence behaviour effectively in the past.

  • Great business is built on relationships between consultants and clients, but feedback suggested a simpler, more authentic approach to communication would be critical to making the desired transformation real.

  • These new behaviours are emblematic of the new global brand and are critical to the success of the business.
