Collaboration amongst acumen7 members has led to the germination of exciting new business enterprises and joint ventures, which are now on course to grow and flourish...

acumen7 is a unique network of senior executives, independent consultants and like-minded professionals, who have come together

to offer their skills and experience to help businesses and other organisations solve the challenges of development and change. 

The purpose of acumen7 is to share and debate ideas; to develop

leading-edge thinking; to innovate, and to explore and develop joint

business opportunities.


The members of acumen7 provide advice and support in a variety of ways. Most commonly, they act as independent advisors to businesses and organisations tackling specific assignments at a high level. Members often provide more general support to senior management in these situations. Many of our members hold non-executive directorships, and sit on the management boards of public bodies and academic institutions.

Through a culture of collective collaboration members do, on occasion, work together to provide a powerful team tailored to the assignment.

Such is the strength of the network that opportunities have been identified, and new and exciting businesses have been created. Details of these enterprises can be viewed by clicking on Developing joint

business opportunities.

Our members inspire confidence in the people around them and are sensitive to the personal issues that arise when moving a business forward. They work as part of the team and are totally focused on solving a problem. As independent, professional people, the only interest they have in their client’s business is their assignment.

Developing joint business opportunities

When the acumen7 network was established, it created an environment for business opportunities to be brought to the table, debated and germinated. This has been possible through the diversity of experience, knowledge of the marketplace, strong connections and the ability to make things happen.
