Our Consultants

Four by Four is a close affiliation of over twenty individual consultants, each of us bringing our own area of expertise to the company, and each of us committed to the Four by Four ethos of individuals as human assets.

In addition to the specialisations mentioned above, we can offer strategic thinking, cross-cultural awareness, diversity management, inter-gender communication, project management, stress management - and many others.

As a result, we can access an extensive and highly qualified resource to provide a tailor-made solution to any client’s needs. And as we all work as individuals with low overheads, our rates are very competitive.
