About Us

Who are The Interventionists?

The Interventionists are a group of highly skilled and experienced professionals, available to established companies of all sizes and across most industries to provide interventionist services. Most of us have decades of corporate and entrepreneurial backgrounds.

Ours is a flexible, dynamic network of very experienced and knowledgeable business people. We are able to hone in on problem areas with incredible precision, accuracy and speed, after which we then also formulate proposed remedial actions which you can implement yourselves or let us manage the change process for you.

As the name indicates, we offer short and crisp engagements designed to maximise the value to your company with minimal disruption to your business, whereby we identify and help with operationalising positive and value enhancing interventions.

Our focus is on helping to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your business by identifying those areas where you could make the biggest (and often fastest) improvements and realise tangible value.

Our interventions do not tend to be long term but rather designed to have as much impact in as short a possible time frame possible.
