What does it mean to have a clock that’s accurate to within two 10 million billionths of a second? Well, the atomic clock at the National Physical Laboratory near London - which is regarded as the most accurate long-term timekeeper in the world - would take more than 100 million years to lose or gain a single second.

The point of all this bewildering precision?

Ask yourself this: if someone were dealing with vital issues concerning the well-being of your organisation, would a near-as-damn-it attitude prevail? Would a generic business model suffice?

At Evolut, exactness, precision and accuracy are non-negotiable matters that are germane to the bespoke solutions we provide.

In fact, we think in terms of nothing less than 100% meticulousness in our approach to corporate strategy; nothing less than 100% accuracy identifying competitive advantages; and nothing less than 100% precision in how we plan and pave a more expedient way forward in the strategic transformation of your organisation.

As a boutique management consultancy adept in creating bespoke solutions, the one aspect of Evolut that sets us apart is the fact that our consultants are all seasoned individuals.

Of those who will play a significant role in the dealings we may have with your organisation, you’ll not find anyone with the slightest hint of dampness behind their ears.

In fact, our consultants have distinguished themselves in some of the largest organisations in the country, and throughout the world, across a wide spectrum of industries.

So they are better equipped to understand the issues you face; more adroit at guiding you around the pitfalls; and more accomplished in helping you to provide the leadership that will see you through the challenges.

In fact, quite a few are ex-CEOs, COOs, CFOs, and PhDs who enable organisations like yours to drive even the most complex change programmes to successful conclusions.

Our way of conducting business has, over the years, helped create close and lasting relationships with the majority of our clients.

Based on trust, our leading-edge advisory services have resulted in streamlined efficiencies and concrete gains to our clients’ bottom line.

Driving this level of service is a set of VALUES that clearly define the Evolut experience:

Excellence: We only recruit the most qualified and accomplished individuals who have distinguished themselves in the highest leadership positions in their chosen fields of expertise.

Teamwork: In our experience, the more inclusive the relationship with our clients’ team, the better the outcomes. This is what we actively encourage with all new clients.

Authenticity: We are in the business of providing business advice. So everything we do is based on data analysis that’s intensely scrutinised so as to provide realistic and reliable outcomes.

Objectivity: A good part of our working relationships with our clients is reliant on our independence, which assures our objectivity. Also, we believe in ‘telling it like it is’, so we never shy away from robust discussions in order to achieve desirable outcomes based on facts.

Evolut is a 100% Black and female-owned company, with a level 1 BEE contributor status. It is also a management consultancy that’s living its own well-defined growth strategy.

Bucking the trend of foreign-owned companies establishing offices in South Africa, Evolut has established its first overseas office in Hamburg, Germany.

This office will bolster our offerings and expertise in the fields of transport (including maritime, aviation, road and rail), logistics, utilities as well as telecoms and ICT.

It also serves as a gateway for European companies seeking financial and transactional advisory services before venturing into African markets, fulfilling a unique and critical gap in the European markets.
