We are designing and implementing the Foundation’s global advocacy strategy to fight child obesity.

We collaborated with Tim Berners-Lee's World Wide Web Foundation on the impact of Artificial Intelligence in low and middle income countries, and produced a detailed report to inform their strategy. 

We provide ongoing global advocacy insight to Sarah Brown's charity, which is focused on global education for children and young people.

Artificial Intelligence looks set to be a transformative technology. We are advocating for policies which will responsibly manage its development.


Even in a short consultancy, Olly proved a real asset to our team. His strategic nous, advocacy skills, and political network, added great value to our work protecting civilians from the conflicts in Syria and Yemen. Thanks to terrific inter-personal skills, he quickly settled in and won the trust of our team and partners alike.
