UpHigh


The case for building purpose driven companies that operate to solve global challenges has never been greater. Today's world is characterized by a scarcity of resources, a growing middle class and a vast and all encompassing digitalization: megatrends that will change everything around us in the next five to fifteen years. The opportunities and uncertainties that surround this gigantic shift also mean business will never look the same again.

The world needs balanced companies that take an active role in addressing global challenges, and we believe that companies who do become sustainable will gain advantages as a result. We also believe that we, as an advisory company, have a role to play in helping our clients transition from old reactionary behaviour to adopting proactive and dynamic business models and value propositions. It is our hope that together we can lift our eyes up and beyond the pressing demands of quarterly reporting, and gain perspective on the possibilities of tomorrow. Welcome UpHigh.

We help build purpose driven companies that thrive on addressing global challenges. We sell our time, skills and experience in process oriented and strategic consulting, combining corporate governance, management consulting and international development in an innovative and entrepreneurial way.

By introducing corporate sustainability, collaboration and innovation as creative filters in the whole corporate structure, we service our clients from the top and throughout, from risk management to business development.

There are no ready-made answers when addressing unique positions to corporate sustainability and purpose driven business, but we bring a sharp toolbox, a high-class network and loads of experience to every assignment.

We combine customized tools and scalable approaches to offer the right value propositions for our clients. It is always about gaining perspective, seeing clearly, and from there, mobilizing for action. We work through our model of understanding, prioritizing and driving for change, sometimes conceptualized in our "maturity ladder" as shown below.

Values


Integrity

For us integrity means being true to oneself, giving and receiving constructive feedback in a continuous and open process. By being who we are – and having the courage to show it in both words and actions – we build a culture where we are something more than just competent consultants. We build a place where we can be ourselves in a broader context, and from there give our most in every assignment.

Dedication

We never stop asking the critical questions or to raising the bar on how we create new structures for change. Sustainability is hard, and that's why we always have to work hard. At the heart of our offer lays a strong sense of commitment and enthusiasm in relation to the issues we handle in our projects. Through dedication we manifest our professional integrity and willingness to succeed on a daily basis.  

Willingness

We believe that everybody has a role to play in building a better world, perhaps not with huge leaps, but everybody can do something. Overall, the view that everybody wants to be a part of something bigger also defines our view on the world and of mankind. To understand the world and contribute we have to listen – to each other, our clients, competitors and global trends. We always try to listen, and this is what helps us carry our integrity in all that we do.
