About us

Hi, we’re Escient.

Every day, we are helping to shape the future – for organisations, society and the planet. We help organisations deal with today’s ever-changing landscape so they can thrive in its complexity. And we help them make a more positive impact, by becoming more human and being purpose led.

What makes Escient different?

It can be best summarised in our logo which reminds us of the magic that lies in the sweet spot of a Venn diagram.

It’s where our people and our capabilities overlap.

It demonstrates the collaborative nature of how we work with you. And, it articulates our commitment to deliver on our purpose: to help organisations shape their future.

Talk is cheap. Actions are priceless.
Our values are at the heart of everything we do.

    Selflessness

    The most satisfying success is one that is shared. This kind of success requires humility and self-awareness.

    A team that is built from a wealth of knowledge and experiences (far broader than one person’s alone) will proactively harness energy to deliver shared success for all.

    Courage

    The pace of change and rising expectations means our thinking must be brave and our actions bold.

    It’s working together to inspire courageous action.

    It’s doing the right thing even when it is difficult.

    It’s telling the truth and demanding it of ourselves.

    But courage doesn’t mean recklessness. Our bravery is underpinned by sound thinking and proven processes.

    And sometimes it means be willing to say, “I don’t know” and then stopping at nothing to find the answer.

    Creativity

    Solving problems is essential in an everchanging world, where we are constantly encountering new challenges.

    It’s why we look at things differently.
    Sometimes you can be so close to a problem it’s impossible to see a solution.

    We step back and look at the problem from all angles.

    And to give us a better perspective, we look at things from other people’s perspectives.

    An unbiased and uninhibited perspective enables us to bravely look beyond the easy answers to complex challenges.

    Empathy

    Everything is underpinned by a human need that we must thoroughly understand from everyone’s perspective.

    We listen first. Carefully.

    We listen to the needs and frustrations, hopes and dreams, desires and ambitions of our clients, their customers and staff.

    But listening alone isn’t enough.

    Understanding what we have heard; knowing what it feels like to be in their shoes, enables us to turn comprehension into viable and valued actions.

    Our people

    Over the last 5 years we’ve built a team of strategists, designers, architects, practitioners, project managers and more, all driven by our values.

    We’ve worked with over 150 companies, governments and not-for-profits.
