What our clients say ...

"Douglas is phenomenal. He has great expertise, is very result oriented, and also knows what it takes for organizations and people to change. His experience in speaking publicly and his Hamster’s approach is so interesting. Douglas understanding of processes, in particular - how to make things happen as productively as possible and what needs to be delivered at each stage - has been very valuable to us at the congress."
Alves Duarte, Managing Director, Business Consulting Mozambique
