- Typical Services engagements start with a £20K assessment (getting to know and understand the customer challenges and what they are looking to achieve). This will then lead on to an initial project typically in the region of £50K-£100K. From there, future projects can be anything from £200K plus
- Sectors include: Consumer Goods, IT, Financial Services, Retail, Communications, Life Sciences and Utilities
- Existing and recent UK accounts include the likes of: Unilever, Intel, Marks & Spencer, Brighthouse and Arco. US clients that need developing in Europe include the likes of: Microsoft, P&G, Ebay and many more
