Partnership at Konsultori

Benefits and types of cooperation

Konsultori partners and external business partners

With the aim to grow, we think bigger. As a boutique consultancy, we work with the best business experts united under the Konsultori brand as Konsultori partners. At the same time, we have external business partners: We successfully work with smaller and larger companies, be it in projects or in longer-term cooperations.

The advantages of a partnership are mutual:

  • win new contracts
  • start larger projects
  • have additional expertise on board
  • share resources
  • increase reputation and influence
  • expand network
  • develop together
  • enjoy working together as a team

About konsultori

“What I particularly like about Konsultori is the clear positioning: what do we stand for, who do we work with, what can we do and deliver? Clients know where they stand, what they can expect and what they will get. I believe that the impressive development and success of Konsultori over the last 10 years is a direct result of this transparent, clear and smart positioning.”
