We are always learning and sharing our ideas
Hughes Consulting is actively involved in research on implications of emerging trends on organisations. This research applies scientific methods within frameworks underpinned by financial economic and strategic management theories. We also work collaboratively with thought leaders and academics. We work at both challenging conceptual issues and practical implementation considerations.
Our research activity is funded entirely by us and our co-authors, and we have no other relevant affiliations.
