About NewBreed

“We are a small team with a big dream. We have a clear vision and relentless passion for delivering a different and better experience than the traditional consulting or advisory firm”.

Our Story

Whilst we have very different previous experience and strengths, we came together through a similar desire to build a company that was different from the traditional corporate firm; each day making a difference for our clients and not having to compromise on the things that matter to us.

There’s a few principles that sum up how what we wanted to do differently:
-Help as many people and businesses as we can to be at their best.
-Be ready to explore new ideas with the spirit and curiosity of a child.
-Deliver client value by listening, committing fully and doing what’s needed to deliver great results – and forget about billable hours.
-Be flexible about lots of things, just not our values.

The ‘NewBreed’ Way

1 Dare to ‘imagine if’ and the possibilities become endless

It’s easy to become desensitised, blinkered or simply avoid the big issues when they are in front of us everyday. Our ‘fresh eyes’ enable us to quickly identify those issues and have the frank conversations, so that we can move on to exploring solutions. When was the last time you dared to ‘imagine if’? It’s where we start and it’s powerful!

2 Extraordinary Commitment and Care

We focus on providing solutions that are ‘right’ for our clients  (forget textbook models, general templates or recycled precedents). Every business, person and environment is different. We make no assumptions, listen and ask lots of questions until we understand. Then, we get to work on creating the right solution for you in the most efficient way.

3 Beyond Transactions

We’re in it for the long haul with clients, partners and suppliers. Valuing the relationship and giving a great experience will always be more important than any single transaction or deal.

Yes, we are realists and recognise that earning a living is essential! By doing the right thing and doing business with the right type of people, we make it more likely that the outcomes will be good for everyone.
