why us

  • strategic partners

    Our interventions are unique in so much as they support clients in progressing from awareness of current capability to informed "best practice" and then to the design and delivery support of engaged transformation programs that leave lasting impact. ​

  • experienced practitioners

    All Perpetual practitioners have years of actual complex leadership experience. We also have skilled practitioners, able to develop and initiate multi-dimensional transformation programs, custom-made to each client situation. ​

  • proprietary methodology

    Our team-to-togetherness t3® methodology is unique, structured, evidence-based and informed by multiple years of our own team’s experience. It is not a generic leadership package. Further, it is backed up by an ever-growing t3® “toolbox” of theoretical modules, tools and supporting references.​

  • our working style

    As befits our viewpoint on team development we aim to “walk the talk." You will find that our carefully-selected t3® practitioners set high standards but do so with humility and humor. In final analysis, you will - importantly - enjoy working with them on this collegial endeavor.​

  • culturally agile & transatlantic focused

    All Perpetual practitioners have international experience that allows us to have the cultural agility to advise clients on hiring and development needs across the transatlantic divide.​

our values

  • never settle

    We seek always to meet our clients’ requirements or die trying. We seek to provide service excellence but have the humility to know we will never quite get there… there is always something to improve, always something new to learn.

  • 20/20

    In everything we do, we aim for transparent integrity. We do what we say and we say what we think. This dictates how we work with our clients and how our team is involved in all aspects of our company’s development.

  • happy days

    We seek to take our profession very seriously but not ourselves. Life is too short not to have some fun en route. Delivery comes first. A close second is maintaining a smile and perspective in all that we do.

  • dare + share

    We have got where we are as a result of collaborative entrepreneurism. We know our future success will require perpetual innovation and audacity. Together anything is possible. We love working with clients and brands that share this value.

  • look up

    Probably our most oft- pronounced value. It talks to the bigger picture… wellness, kindness and respect for the wider Perpetual family and the community in which we live. When we look after each other, everyone wins. Look up.
