Why Nous

Our promise: A bigger idea of success

We are an international management consultancy with a broad consulting capability that can take you from strategy and design through to transformational change. We work with leaders in the private, public and community sectors to deliver positive influence that improves outcomes for people and communities, strengthens business performance, supports productive and inclusive economies, and protects the natural environment. 

When we partner with you, we think big. We elevate your ambition and sharpen your sense of what’s possible. We build confidence in what we can achieve together and we realise a bigger idea of success.

We recognise that diversity in people, thinking and approach can solve the most complex challenges. As we collaborate, we think deeply and adaptively to find the best possible answers. With your strengths combined thoughtfully with ours, we become far more than the sum of our parts. Together we achieve bigger, better outcomes. The attributes that make this possible are found in the roots of the word Nous.

Nous means ‘we’ over ‘me’

We, the French meaning of nous, is essential to our being. So essential that our visual brand takes inspiration from a murmuration: the natural phenomenon where large flocks of starlings fly together in a dynamic, fluid motion. This ‘we’ is far more powerful than the many ‘me’.

A murmuration has huge energy because it is wonderfully collaborative, has a shared purpose, and is an intelligent, elegant system operating on simple principles. This powerful metaphor exemplifies how we work with each other, and how we partner with you.

How we work

Working as one unified network of more than 750 consultants across five countries, we can easily bring together the ideal mix of expertise you need, at the scale and speed you require. Our operations are underpinned by robust governance, policies and practices that ensure we work to the highest professional and ethical standards while delivering on your needs and our purpose to deliver positive influence. Over the course of our projects, we build your organisational capability so that what we achieve together can be sustained into the future.

Achieving outcomes for you is our top priority

Our aim is to deliver bigger thinking, better outcomes and a great experience for our clients. After every project, we seek feedback to better understand your experience working with us.

While we never stop striving to do better, we’re proud to say our NPS stands at +80.7, compared to a global consulting average of +76.6. (Source: Hinge Research Institute).
