Consultancy

Nakedize’s innovative educational resources have all evolved from a mixture of research, thinking, design, and decades of commercial experience. Your organisation can call on all that thought leadership and experience through our four consultancy services. These services are provided by Nakedize principals Simon Hertnon and Jeroen ten Berge and, to be frank, we think you’ll be blown away by how much value they deliver for every precious dollar you spend (especially if you have previously contracted a consultant from one of those ‘Big’ professional services firms).

Unlike most consultants, we are equipped to teach as we troubleshoot

Consultants are typically hired to troubleshoot – to fix a costly problem, or to temporarily plug a capability gap. Sometimes the work is ‘one-off’, but much more commonly the skills required for the work are needed in other areas, or at future times. So one shortcoming with consultants is that there is no residue of skills after the project or assignment is completed. Education is the driving force of Nakedize, so we will always offer to educate as part of our service delivery. Finding the simplest ways to explain the most useful knowledge is our speciality.
