About

Great North Wood Consulting was founded in 2019 and works to help mission-driven organisations gain insight into what they do and translate that into meaningful strategy and change. We specialise in business modelling and analysis, organisational review and assessment, strategy development and generating wisdom from complex information. 

We work across industries but have particular expertise in the research sector, the cultural and creative industries, and working with organisations moving into new phases of growth and development. 

We care about what you do and we can help you to do it better. We are creative and collaborative, pragmatic and focused. 

We take a detailed view –  drawing on insights gleaned from your data and transactional information – and a broad perspective – understanding the complexity of your environment and articulating a narrative that can be understood by all stakeholders.

We deliver quickly, on time and with outputs tailored to suit our clients’ needs.
