Welcome to Vantaggio
I provide independent research and consultancy services in three distinct yet highly inter-related disciplines:
Here, you'll find discussions on these disciplines, plus access to some of my research papers and studies. You can also read up on some of my past and current projects. I've got more than 20 years' experience at the top of my game, and have worked for leading organisations in the private and public sectors.
