We aspire to be:

In a world of increasing complexity we facilitate down-to-earth and practical solutions to wide-ranging, difficult problems

Light on the Ground:
We support and coach others to do what is needed with minimum intervention

We work with our clients, by listening, not by imposing our ideas

We believe that everyone has creative potential. Very often the people closest to a problem know more about the solutions than anyone else – and any idea might be a good idea!

We start from where you are, and acknowledge that making mistakes is a natural, useful part of the learning process –

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new”

What our clients say:

“We couldn’t have done it without input from Barefoot. You really covered all the issues, you paid great attention to detail and ensured that all people involved in the process were consulted. What you gave us was a structure that recognises once you have identified a problem and its causes, you can then move on from there to find a solution”
