Many firms deliver only 63% of their business strategy. More than 1/3 place the figure at less than 50%. (Harvard Business Review). Inadequate planning and execution skills, poor processes and strategy governance are often to blame.

Julia Davenport is an experienced strategy, marketing and communications leader and Board member.

Julia believes clients are the lifeblood of a business. ‘Keeping clients at the centre of your business aligns everyone around one purpose - making your clients successful. But I also believe that execution matters - a lot”. In August 2014, McKinsey noted "It may surprise you just how much impact execution has on corporate health.” Julia couldn't agree more, so makes sure her support is always pragmatic and aligns with clients’ business strategy.
