Our Practices

Professional Services

The professional services sector, specifically management consulting and advisory services, play an ever more important part in complementing the capabilities of industry organisation across both private and public sector. This segment heralds back to the origins of Wilton & Bain and, whilst the business has extended its coverage vastly over of the years, it remains a core capability of the firm and one where we can demonstrate to be clear market leaders.

Information Technology & Communication

The demands of the global enterprise market present technology vendors with exceptional opportunity, yet fierce competition. The world’s leading Information Technology and Communications companies pursue market share and revenue growth by embedding themselves into their existing client base and outperforming others. Through innovation and acquisition, the ongoing development of their product and service offerings is constant, yet wholly reliant on individual and collective talent. The single most important corporate resource is talent; technologically literate, operationally agile business people with a truly global perspective. Given the transparency of organisational strategies, people are the prime source of competitive advantage. Consequently, the companies that are most likely to succeed are those that invest wisely in attracting, developing and retaining talent.
