Identifying excellence in the expert network

A top individual can be the driving force behind business growth. We know that getting the best person or team on board is a crucial consideration to ensure that you get the job done. That's why, as well as high academics, each member of the network is pre-screened and assessed against the five criteria of the commercial skill-set to identify a top performing individual. 

Excellence is more than a CV, so we take the time to get to know our network, from graduate to C-suite, to ensure that we can only connect you to the most relevant people with the required skills, values, personality and drivers.

The commercial skill-set looks at the ideal blend of IQ and EQ that an individual posseses.
