Roll on 2021

This is less of an insight and more of a reminder about where and how things began for Ecclesian Consulting. For a long time I have been looking for a way to combine my network of amazing individuals with the experience that I have gathered over more than two decades working across emerging markets. With Ecclesian I believe that I have finally found the right vehicle to achieve this.

With hindsight, setting up a new company at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic could not have been worse timing. That said, every cloud has a silver lining. The pause in so many sectors has given me an opportunity to reflect on where I want Ecclesian to go and how we will get there. I have been lucky enough to secure Risk Capital Partners as my first client and am indebted to Luke Johnson for believing in me.

As we emerge into a new world, I am confident that the opportunity to do business across cultures will remain as strong as it has ever been. Indeed, it may be that the push to diversify portfolios into new markets and sectors is more imperative than ever with the desire to increase resilience against unknown future events. I am a great believer in trying new things and look forward to guiding clients into new spaces.

Roll on 2021…
