Coaching an innovative start-up to survive and thrive
- Vision evolved
- Suppliers inspired
- Strategy focused
Design leader Boskke made its name with its award-winning Sky Planters, which save space by hanging plants upside down from the ceiling. When its founding partners needed to kickstart new business growth, they asked DK&A Managing Director David Kester for coaching in strategy development.
As Boskke prepared to move from New Zealand to the UK, David worked with the founders – empowering them to review their strategy, processes and products. He also helped them set up an interim non-Exec Board and streamline their plans, structures and roles.
- Leaders nurtured: David gave the founders the confidence to act strategically and decisively
- Company relocated: Boskke now headquartered at the Royal College of Art’s Innovation Centre
- New product stream crystallised: innovative Spool range now available
