We are proud for the diverse mix of expertise and geographical origin of our people. Our network of ‘associates’ includes a number of established and seasoned professionals, all experts in their field. We also collaborate with a number of selected company providers who support strategy implementation and offer specialised services when needed; we have selected them because of their integrity and quality of work. Most importantly though, we have a network of young talented freelancers who are at the beginning of their career and have the energy and creativity to bring fresh ideas to the table. Our associates are based in the UK, in continental Europe, in the U.S. and in Israel, each adding his or her value to Wide Strategy's multi-cultural approach.
