Our Values

Our values are the backbone to our organisation. Integrating these values into our working practice enables us to perform to the best of our abilities and. therefore. ensures that our clients perform to the best of theirs.

We do not charge our clients more if conversations go over time, or if there is extended face value. Time is often perceived as money, but we believe that important words should not be left unsaid, no matter how long it takes. One of our key values is that we are always generous with our time. We enjoy building relationships and take pleasure in spending time with our clients, and we ensure that in every face-to-face encounter, regardless of how brief, we leave something behind.
>> Always tell the client the whole truth: Regardless of what the client would like to hear, however painful. 
>> Exceed client expectations: Add real value beyond the initial task 
>> Be generous with our time: No unexpected charges for time/administration 
>> Do not oversell our own capabilities: If we can’t do it we'll say so 
>> No bait and switch: Clients see the same consultants from start to completion 
>> Create client independence: Transfer of skills and knowledge from day one 
>> Maintain confidentiality and data security: We do not divulge client information.

Success Stories

Reacquiring oil and gas assets

Petroleum Sharing Agreements (PSAs) help poorer countries avoid the up-front costs of developing oil assets in return for a share of profits. However, these agreements are open to corruption, resulting in the wealth failing to reach populations. 

After the removal of its leader, Yemen’s new government wanted to ethically manage the end of its PSAs, ensuring the wealth went towards food, healthcare, education and other infrastructure. The government commissioned Vector Consultants to perform due diligence and a diagnostic assessment of the PSAs. Our work will enable Yemen’s people to recover between $500 million and $1 billion from one oil field alone, plus improve wealth allocation from other oil fields. This money will help develop education, transport and government systems throughout the country. 

Doubling banking profits

Sekerbank in Turkey commissioned us to address issues that were affecting its profits. Our six-week diagnostic solution uncovered systemic and behavioural opportunities to improve performance, particularly through cross sales in branches. 

To improve service and results, we redesigned the bank’s customer relationship management and technology systems, and created new branch layouts. We also conducted assessment and development programmes to improve skills. Our work has doubled Sekerbank’s profit per customer.

Creating Macedonia’s Ministry of Justice

Following the breakup of Yugoslavia, Vector Consultants was commissioned to create and launch a new Ministry of Justice for Macedonia. A lack of central judicial control had resulted in escalating crime, such as people trafficking, drug movement and fake goods.

Among our many activities, we built a best-practice model, conducted thorough diagnostic assessments, defined roles, provided coaching, designed and delivered IT, set standards for prisons, and delivered staff-engagement sessions.
