Who we are

Who we are

Everybody at Oaklin is very different from the run-of-the-mill consultant. We each have our own style, developed along a wide variety of career paths and have picked up specialist knowledge in different disciplines.

What we have in common is an unflinching resolve for doing the right thing, an obsession for quality and exceptional consulting skills developed on a range of consulting assignments. All our people have delivered difficult programmes and been trusted advisors of major leaders in global companies that are household names.
