Our story

Who we work with

We’re not a typical consultancy. In 2012, we made a list of all the that which never worked for us when being clients, we flipped that list on its head and that became our blueprint. Today, we partner, more importantly we get involved, we share your challenge, own your objective, and work with you as part of your team, following a simple principle:

Deliver success, build trust.

We work with corporate, SME, public, private and third sector organisations. The trust we build in relationships through delivery drives our growth. Today we have experience in all sectors and over 15 different industries ranging from construction to Information Technology. We follow 3 core values which sit at the heart of everything we do:

Integrity – Innovation – Tenacity

Years in business

In July 2020 we will be celebrating our 8 year anniversary.

Expert Practitioners

Our team continues to expand bringing wide ranging expertise. 

Projects Delivered

We have delivered success all sectors and 15+ industries. 

Who We Are

Our core team

“…worked with esp for many years as a tier 1 contractor in the past. Since joining as a part owner of a new business, it was clear the value they could bring my new team. Whilst managing an SME has the same principals as a tier 1, esp understand there are differences. They have successfully on-boarded my business and esp really feel like part of our team. Their knowledge and skills is some of the best I have seen and can also be evidenced by us achieving a top three position in all qualitative submissions to win work since we began working together. esp offer a lot more including recruitment, business support, coaching, and much more and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to any other business.”

WM, Managing Director, (SME)

“…easily on par with the best of the strategy consultants and senior executives I have worked with during my time with NatWest and elsewhere. Farooq does great work in his advisory role to the Government and is a fantastic leader of people. He is also a world-class human being. Highly recommended by me”
