Our Purpose

FGC uses consulting and education to transform strategic intention into commercial and social value.

Our clients are most likely to call on us to solve strategic and operational problems within complex systems in states of uncertainty.

Our Approach

FGC provides solutions but also ensures that problems are set up correctly and progressively re-framed to achieve maximum value.

We place a high value on understanding how managers control operations and also generate growth/value.
