About us

Our single minded objective is to make a contribution to the world by creating transition tools for businesses that help accelerate their progress towards a more equitable and sustainable future. A future that benefits them and all those that rely upon them.

We work with our global network of trained advisors and directly with our partners to maximise the power and capacity of Single Organizing Idea (SOI®) and overcome the challenges and challengers that stand in the way of progress.

Innovative organizational development, advanced assessment tools and the latest technology. These are the assets we use to push the boundaries of what’s possible and create what’s necessary to accelerate progress. As we progress we learn and as we learn we improve.

It goes without saying that every decision we make and action we take has our Single Organizing Idea at the front and centre of it.

Meet the founders

Neil Gaught


Neil is best known as the conceiver of SOI®. A straight-talking former soldier, designer, entrepreneur, author and self-styled business humaniser, Neil is a champion 
of practical, sustainable change.



Neil’s drive to find an alternative 
to the status quo began in 2002 when he left a senior position at WPP to seek a new way forward in a world of work he judged to be both unfair and unsustainable. Driven by a passion to find pragmatic solutions for his clients, his work as a strategic advisor led him to working across five continents on major projects for businesses, large and small, NGOs and multilateral agencies.

In 2017 his idealism and desire to help and share what he has learned led to him writing the award winning book CORE and in 2020 publishing the CORE Playbook.

Ian Mitchell

Ian is an accomplished CEO 
and highly successful tech entrepreneur.

After completing his MSc in International Development, Administration and Planning,
Ian worked for the International Development Agency in Kenya 
and The Body Shop International Fair Trade Department before turning his hand to the telecommunications industry and the co-founding of Direct Response - a business founded in an East London garage that grew into a group employing over 1,500 people across the UK, winning awards for growth, service excellence and the coveted Investors In People 
Gold Award.

He is dedicated to helping businesses accelerate their progress and contributes his considerable experience to achieving just that through a number of enterprises.

David Bonbright

David Bonbright is a globally recognised and sought after pioneer dedicated to helping businesses maximise their social impact through mutual accountability.

A Californian by birth and lawyer by training, David’s career was shaped
in South Africa during the struggles of the 1980s and an unexpected meeting in 2004 with Nelson Mandela who underlined to him that “in social change, as in our own personal and social lives, it is relationships that determine outcomes”. It was an inspirational lesson that led to David’s creation of the widely praised performance measurement method Constituent Voice™ and in more recent times the SOI® Learning Loop System.
