About Us

About us

The Hive Consultancy works for organisations to help them make more money – by winning new clients or selling in more deeply to existing ones.

Our assignments are related to marketing, communications, business development, branding and measurement.

Our clients, no matter their sector, tend to be influential in their fields and forward-looking in their approach.

One client told us that our methods are ‘thoughtful and rigorous, yet highly pragmatic’. This is what you can expect working with us.
