A group of six leading professional industry consultants, working for clients in over 80 countries, has joined forces to create a new collaborative approach to solving business solutions for destinations, venues, individuals and event companies.
Advantage Consultants include: Paul Kennedy MBE, Director and Owner of Kennedy Integrated Solutions; Elisabeth Hansa, Owner of Support & Strategy On Demand; Linda Pereria, Executive Director of CPL events and CEO of the L&I Communications group; Nina Gardiner, Founder & CEO of Spotl1ght Communications; Steen Moller, Director and Owner of Open The World; and Sue Wilkes, Director and Owner of SW Business & Events Solutions.
Bringing together a group of international individuals based in Austria, Denmark, Portugal, and the United Kingdom, they are able to offer a diverse range of strategic skills, opinions and expertise. Sticking to what each of them does best, their combined depth and breadth of different skill sets – all of them have their own independent consultancy businesses – means they can offer their services either as a group or individually, depending on the solutions that they present to their clients, said Paul Kennedy MBE, who brought all of those involved together to create this new business opportunity.
Sue Wilkes said that, she has often talked to people in their industry about the idea of bringing together a collective approach to solving business problems. They all work with specific individual skill sets, but often there is a missing link to finding the right expertise to solving a business problem holistically rather than just thinking and acting as if one size fits all! They come together knowing that each of them has a role to play and an opinion to reference against.
Sue personally thinks this is a big opportunity to help support this industry internationally and to build success for others.
