Who we are

Founded in 1998, Clarion Consulting is a Business and IT consultancy with four practice areas – Change, Projects, Digital, People. We help our customers to deliver organisational transformation, improve agility and build competitive advantage. We work across multiple sectors and industries and at every level within our customer organisations.

We use best practice methodologies combined with our deep experience to deliver meaningful change that benefits our customers. We are practical and results focussed.

We’re a little different from some consultancies – everyone in Clarion is a practitioner. We don’t have dedicated sales personnel or Directors who don’t get their hands dirty. We believe that if you trust us enough to buy from us, then we should step up and deliver for you.

We stay fresh and keep our skills honed by always being actively involved in the delivery of services to our customers. We only employ experienced consultants who hit the ground running.

What’s great about Clarion is that whoever pitches the sale, delivers the service. There is none of the classic disconnect between sales and delivery – you’re dealing with the same people.”

About our Logo

Our logo may look a little abstract at first, but it actually represents two key elements of our business and our approach to our customers. Firstly, two inverted question marks represent Clarion’s ability to turn our customers problems around; take an alternative view of matters. Secondly, two people facing each other represents Clarion working in partnership with our customers.

We really believe that successful transformation is achieved when we work in close partnership with our customers. We don’t dictate, we listen carefully and work collaboratively; bringing our experience, knowledge and research to design pragmatic solutions. Together is better.




During project planning we often mistake gut feeling for fact. This is a useful model for separating fact from feeling. https://futuretodayinstitute.com/mu_uploads/2020/06/AvK.pdf #clarionproject

If “the essence of strategy is choosing what not to do,” as Michael Porter famously said, then the essence of execution is truly not doing it. Sometimes the hardest decision is choosing what not to do OR even harder stopping what you are doing! https://hbr.org/2018/09/too-many-projects
