Get in touch to explore how we can help.

*In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we've adapted to fully online services.
Salons explore new ideas, look at old ideas from new angles and uncover opportunities and value. They question what we know, what we do, and how we do it, stimulating creative thinking to unlock innovation and enhance business development. In a volatile world, how do you keep up, or better yet, stay ahead? Through synergy and by thinking differently, that's how!

Moving from exploration, discovery and ideation, curated workshops address alignment, planning and implementation, paving the way to new business excellence.

Workshops and salons empower individuals and teams. It's about transparency, collaboration and efficiency. This is where we get stuck into creating robust, feasible and viable action plans!
Our unique executive courses in Digital Ecosystem Management and Digital Business and Innovation Leadership, cover necessary traits, mindsets, methods, models and actions that characterise exemplary agile leadership of successful digital businesses.Tessellate shares best practices based on first-hand experiences and observation.

Sign up for the Fundamentals of Digital Ecosystem Management Course (in partnership with Informa Connect) now.
To better guide you through what can at times seem like a labyrinth, we continuously develop tools with partners, keeping pace with constant innovation and evolution. We develop our own models and also adapt existing templates, canvases and architectures tailoring them to the context at hand.

Some of these tools are used during Tessellate salons, workshops, advisory and training. For information and specific needs please reach out to us at hello@tessellate-advisory.com

Tessellate comprises a worldwide ecosystem of partners providing a wealth of diverse experience and expertise and offering a NEW view of business, innovation and value in a connected environment.

Our approach

We practice what we preach! We believe in collaboration, synergy and commitment to learn, lead and succeed though being:

We observe, engage, analyse and assess while generating a cohesive team environment working to a common objective.

Although we leverage industry best practices, help translate these in line with your unique business context and goals setting specific targets to relevant benchmarks.

We use existing, reusable tools, models, … tailor them and develop new ones to address particular requirements and reach value creating outcomes.

Because no area of business functions in a silo, we understand that more often that not, we will need to venture a bit beyond the strict scope of work as we endeavour to provide the most value to your business.

Given the current circumstances, we've adjusted to provide fully online engagements (still 12 weeks). We remain convinced that nothing replaces the magic that happens when people come together, and look forward to being able to be face-to-face with our clients again, but in the meantime, we've adapted to the situation and continue to help your company transform too!

"[…] in innovation many people are talking and discussing, but they are not able to drill it down, to bring it to the point and to create building blocks including clear action points. Your team has made innovation happen for us, your reality check was very helpful for us and we got a lot of value from these workstreams. It is always fruitful to work together with international experts like you, who are established in the market. […]
They bring a different perspective that is fresh and pragmatic."

Tess cares

Tess is Tessellate Advisory's conscience personified. She's a sensitive, do-gooder type. She sees us travel the world (pre-Covid-19 that is!) and interact with so many different individuals and organisations. She encourages us to recognise and be grateful for all we have and experience, and nudges us to share our good fortune.

We believe business should improve lives, societies and ideally help our planet (or at least not harm it). That's why, wherever we are, we seek to support small, local enterprises and worthy initiatives, while enhancing the experience for you and your broader team.

Where possible, we prefer to swap windowless conference rooms for breezy terraces or inspiring surroundings and share a hike, exhibition or cooking class instead of stuffy networking drinks. We work with you to find the best fit and adapt to online constraints too.
