PROCESS /

Where do we start?

Let’s start with an initial brief analysis and actionable working meeting. This is how we begin pretty much every relationship with our clients and partners.

It is crucial for us to hear you out first and ask questions in order to understand the problems you are struggling with, as well as your hopes for the future. This would help us to prepare a custom made scope and process we could work together in.

Also, in case we are not meant for each other this time, we would be happy to guide you further to experts and organisations from a number of networks we are part of in Poland and abroad.
