Strategy + Leadership = Success

Highly successful organisations have a clear view of where they want to be in the mid to long term and how they’re going to get there. Whether you are in the public, private or voluntary sectors, we can help you define your organisation’s vision for the future and develop the strategy, and the high-level leadership skills, to achieve it.

Craig Lawrence, the Founder and Managing Director of Craig Lawrence Consulting Limited

Craig Lawrence CBE founded his consultancy company in January 2021 after leaving the British Army as a Major General and then spending more than four years researching, writing about and teaching strategy-making and strategic leadership to an international cohort of senior executives at the Royal College of Defence Studies (RCDS). Although its name might not suggest it, the London-based College is the UK Government’s only ‘strategy school’ and is a global leader in the postgraduate education of strategists and future strategic leaders. Craig held various appointments at the College, including Director of Strategy, Director of Strategic Leadership and, latterly, Course Director. He is also the author of Getting Strategy Right (Enough), the College’s guide to strategy-making. The aim of Craig’s company is to apply some of the best-practice he developed whilst at the College to help organisations define an ambitious vision for the future and then develop the strategy, and high-level leadership skills, to achieve it.
