OUR TEAM
Leading strategy consultants.

Stakeholder Strategies wish to inform clients and prospective customers of some changes.

Largely prompted by Covid-19 related market pressures, Stakeholder Strategies’ partners have decided to reconfigure the form of organisation used to offer consulting services in the future.

Under the new model, Rick Boven, David Cunliffe and Sarah Wilshaw-Sparkes will continue to consult through their private consulting companies:

  • Rick Boven, in partnership with Anton Boven, will continue to operate Stakeholder Strategies, developing corporate, technology, social and environmental strategies. You can contact Rick at rick@stakeholderstrategies.co.nz
  • David Cunliffe has founded a new strategy consulting practice, The Polis Consulting Group, with Kieran Brown and a range of Associates. PCG will focus on post-COVID recovery strategies, innovation and digital strategy, and economic and regional development. You can contact David at david@polis.nz
  • Sarah Wilshaw-Sparkes will continue with her long- standing business, Strategic & Consumer Consulting. She is open to a wide range of projects, however, and is always motivated by the prospect of interesting work with congenial people. You can contact Sarah at sarah@wilshaw-sparkes.com

Our purpose, individually and collectively, remains to contribute to a thriving New Zealand by strengthening the competitive performance and effectiveness of its organisations.
