Our​ goal is to achieve your​ vision: to drive change, develop your organisation, and ensure tangible and sustainable results.
What We Do

Playfair offers consulting services to a wide variety of clients across many different industries and regions, from local charities to nationwide tech companies. Our consultants are able to meet a diverse range of project briefs: competitive analysis, market entry, reorganization, and franchising strategy are just a few of the many forms of consulting we've done. Come to use with a problem you'd like solved, a strategic decision you'd like reviewed, or ideas you need some research on: we build strong client relationships and engage with all stakeholders to supply the desired results, clearly recording and communicating all progress throughout the project.

Are there costs involved?

We operate on a pro-bono basis and offer our services free of charge with the aim of providing our student consultants with development opportunities. However, if you are satisfied with our services we do appreciate any donations. These are reinvested in Playfair to safeguard our sustainability and to improve our resources and services.

How the project cycle works

We run two project cycles annually from February through April and September through November, with each project lasting ten weeks. Clients are confirmed at least one month in advance of the start date.

Week 1

Project Brief & Introduction

Prior to starting work, our Relations Team will arrange a suitable task brief to be delivered by our company. Having finalised all of the necessary details, the client will be assigned a team leader to commence the ten-week project. A first formal introductory kick-off meeting will be held as soon as possible. 

Week 5 or 6

Mid-Term Review

Our consultants will arrange to have a mid-term review with their respective clients at this time. This is an opportunity for the team to discuss their work thus far, and for the client to raise any issues and thoughts before their team begins to synthesise and evaluate their research. 

Week 9

Final Report

A professional report documenting a team's research, results and analysis are due in the penultimate week of a project. This will be handed to the client at the presentation the following week. Each report is meticulously reviewed to ensure it is of the high standard and clarity that we guarantee. 

Week 10

Final Presentation & Feedback

Clients and any of their invited stakeholders will be given a final report and presentation that responds to all points stated in the task brief. Following the conclusion of a project, we like to keep in touch with a client to hear about their future success and ask for feedback regarding our performance.
