Six professional industry consultants have come together to take a new collaborative approach to solving business solutions for destinations, venues, individuals and event companies.
Called Advantage Consultants, those involved have already established businesses focused on delivering solutions to drive success for companies and global industry brands including strategic management, business planning, B2B event solutions from concept to delivery, human resources, marketing, communications and PR, coaching and mentoring.
Advantage Consultants include Paul Kennedy, director and owner of Kennedy Integrated Solutions; Elisabeth Hansa, owner of Support & Strategy On Demand; Linda Pereria, executive director of CPL events and CEO of the L&I Communications group; Nina Gardiner, founder and CEO of Spotl1ght Communications; Steen Moller, director and owner of Open The World; and Sue Wilkes, director and owner of SW Business & Events Solutions.
“We are able to offer a diverse range of strategic skills, opinions and expertise. Sticking to what each of us does best, our combined depth and breadth of different skill sets – all of us have our own independent consultancy businesses – means we can offer our services either as a group or individually, depending on the solutions that we present to our clients,” said Kennedy.
Wilkes added: “We come together knowing that each of us has a role to play and an opinion to reference against. I personally think this is a big opportunity to help support this industry internationally and to build success for others.”
