Disrupting the market
Pimento Partners was set up to disrupt the market. Too many are left in the lurch with a load of good advice and no idea how to act on it. To add to the malaise surrounding consultants, there is a real concern about the kind of expertise they offer. As Richard Branson once said: “I’m always startled to hear about young people going into consulting right after school, without having a lot of real-world work experience under their belt.”
To address these concerns, we’ve built a business with no corporation, no offices and no profiteering. Our consultants work for themselves as individuals or small teams. This means every penny the client spend goes to pay for the work they do rather than the infrastructure that supports them. All our team have run their own businesses and know what it is like first-hand to enjoy success and in some cases, face off failure.
Highs and lows
One common misconception is that you must be big and broken to hire a management consultant. Not true. We’ve worked with small businesses and many are hugely successful. It’s about getting advice on business challenges whether they are negative or positive. Hiring is as hard as firing. Growing presents as many challenges as shrinking.
