“All businesses have a choice: they can either be good, or they can do good, and of course they can do both.”
We are a small business, which doesn’t rely upon a big brand. This makes us very accountable for our deliverables. We recognise that our future depends upon the quality of our client relationships and the quality of our work. We are experienced operational leaders before we are consultants and this enhances our credibility because we have faced, and dealt with, similar challenges. We have chosen to dedicate our professional lives to making change happen for our clients – with conscience and purpose.
“We believe that all businesses have a choice: they can either be good, or they can do good, and of course they can do both.”
Naturally it is essential for a business to make financial gains. But while this is a necessary outcome, it is not the same as purpose. How might we resolve the problems of the world and still create profit?
All stakeholders are important, but each has different needs. Nurturing success that inspires every stakeholder creates a winning business.
To be true to purpose in a sustainable manner requires a change to organisational systems and structures. The organisation’s why needs to permeate its how and its what.
It is a given that every consultancy should excel in their field of expertise. At Four Points, we place emphasis on how we go about doing what we do. It is our collective values, style and commitment that make the difference. We behave to:
– to help you to be at your best.
– to bring clarity and awareness.
– to unlock the potential of radical thinking.
– to combine intuition with experience.
We have a senior team of purpose-aligned, trusted and talented associates who work for us on a project-by-project basis. This flexible model allows us to match the exact expertise of an associate with your unique business requirements.
Technology is key to how we work. Here are some of our favorite apps.
We are passionate about people having a place to call home which is why we have been working in different ways to help the homeless, be it through giving away supplies to rough sleepers or supporting homelessness charities with pro-bono services related to their own change strategy and management.
Ravi is committed to making Four Points dispensable. A strange ambition for a consultancy business? Perhaps, but as he says “every company needs the skills to manage change within their own organisation. It makes sense, then, for our success to be measured on how quickly we can make ourselves redundant.” Ravi is excited by the opportunity to work with organisations that want clarity over their purpose and wish to reorientate the entire business operation to fulfil it.
