Expert Consulting

Knowing more
at that crucial moment

Expert Consulting ensures you have access to expertise at that crucial moment. After all, making the right decision is a complex matter. What’s more, there is a great deal of pressure to deliver excellent answers in business and politics. The coronavirus crisis has highlighted that it makes a difference whether academic and business experts are heard or not. Expert Consulting entails taking a step back, seeking an independent opinion and then taking a giant leap forwards.

20blue is
your partner
when there’s no margin for error

20blue is your partner for numerous services. Our Expert Community – a network of academic and industry experts, many of whom have worked with us for several years – is well versed in all the important drivers of social change. Let’s look at two specific examples:

  • Your personal industry expert develops an innovative sales approach for the semiconductor industry since they know what problems companies in this sector are struggling with.
  • A group of country experts has been working for a retail giant for many years as part of an Expert Hub to determine the best marketing ideas for its international marketing efforts.

Expert Consulting gives you access to better knowledge. And when academic research is allowed to play a role, it also means you can access that knowledge earlier. After all, almost every important trend we are dealing with today has long been discussed in academia.

“Expert Consulting from 20blue supports companies and organisations at that crucial moment.”

The experts in our community will research, analyse and investigate specifically for you. Either ad-hoc or as part of a long-term project. 20blue is responsible for bringing together the right specialists to answer your questions. Our Methodology team has a seat at the table when we’re designing mixed methods studies. Complexity is right up our street – you are more than welcome to leave it up to us to choose the most appropriate format for your question. Expert Consulting covers everything from fact sheets to studies, brainstorming to panels.

Expert Consulting is also a statement. It means you are making independent expertise an integral part of decision-making processes in politics and business. We also share this stance – we believe evidence and facts form the basis of a healthy, democratic society. We have brought our experience in successful Expert Consulting – which also safeguards our clients’ interests – with us from our predecessor, Nimirum. We know how to successfully combine the decision-making interests of our clients with experts’ interest in furthering their expertise.

Our commitment:

  • Your project and organisational knowledge will be more stable thanks to valid, independent assessments.
  • Your decisions will be sustainably effective and help you provide demanding stakeholders with in-depth answers.

If you’re looking to reposition yourself as a knowledge-savvy company, we would be delighted to support you as an agency.
