About Envision™

"People don't buy what you do they buy why your do it" - Simon Sinek

Old versus New Paradigm

Moving from the old, familiar, and often unsuccessful paradigms within a firm to those that are new, insightful and focused involves the balance between the strategic, operational, technology and process dimensions within the organisation.

“The reality is that everybody makes mistakes. The issue isn’t whether you will make them, it’s what you will do about them. It’s whether you will choose the path of humility and courage or the path of ego.” Steven Covey.

We see it time and again. When a firm’s culture and strategic mind set are aligned with the various technology and process related platforms deployed across the organisation, people have the means and freedom to build all-important client relationships and maximise performance.

Relationships are business

Just as crucially, Envision™ has grown on the basis of relationship building with absolute transparency. We’re honest and open, always ready to provide realistic opinions and advice. Envision gives you the whole picture. Our analysis will clearly identify what’s good, bad or indifferent in your existing set up, and precisely define the solution.

Building long term relationships founded in trust. This is what defines Envision™ and our journey.

I was introduced to the phrase "Skating to where the puck is going to be" by Gary Boomer of Boomer Consulting Inc in the USA. Its source is Wayne Gretzky who said: " I skate to where the puck is going to be not where it has been". It is a mindset that has served me well. It sure beats staying with the status quo.

    Breda Ferarrio

    Vision & Alignment

    Throughout a business’s journey there are times where Partners/ Boards need to design, reconnect or re-align around what the vision for the firm is or should be. Having these conversations can sometime be difficult – particularly when there may be lack of agreement or tension among the partners. The commercial and cultural impact of doing this correctly is enormous for the whole business.

    Breda specialises in working with boards, partners and leadership teams – individually and collectively - in having the vision conversation – creating alignment – and then supporting the process of sharing that vision with the whole team/business as well as defining the strategies that will move the business towards the achievement of the vision.
