About Cairnforth

Cairnforth is a management consultancy with a proven track record in working with clients to set and deliver business strategies. With senior level experience and proven expertise gained from working for major global corporations, Cairnforth consultants bring clarity and focus to the boardroom to deliver business growth and improved financial performance.

Buy-in and ownership from the client's senior team is vital to the success of any strategic change process and Cairnforth works together with your CEO and Board to ensure that new strategic opportunities are embedded in the business and are deliverable.

We work as part of your team, not instead of your team, to clarify your ambitions and to help you to deliver them.

Our approach is very different to that of many other strategy consultancies. We take a unique approach to your business issues. It’s not about strategic theory, it’s about your specific business challenges. It's about what's holding you back and it's about taking advantage of, and creating, market opportunities with you.

What We Do


We help your business to create powerful strategies for growth.

We create a bespoke process, unique to your business and we guide your team through that process step-by-step.

We challenge you at every step to ensure that the strategy we create is deliverable and achievable.


It is a critical that your strategy doesn’t become a beautifully bound document that nobody reads.

We stay with your team once the strategy has been created to make sure that it is effectively and efficiently delivered.

Successful strategy is all about implementation and delivering change.


We examine every angle for performance improvement identifying short and longer term levers of growth.

We challenge internal and external processes to make sure that they enable growth and unlock opportunities.

We support the CEO and Boards to create the right culture and behaviours required to underpin success.

How We Work

Whether we are working with a client on a comprehensive strategic review, redesigning business processes or identifying business performance initiatives for growth, the approach we take is the same:

We have no pre-conceived solutions

We do not have an ‘off the shelf’ approach that you must take. Each engagement and client challenge are different and the approach we take and structure created is unique to your business.

We are collaborative

We work with you as part of your team, rather than an external firm working at arms length.

We discover the real issues

We work hard to understand how your business works and what its challenges and opportunities might be.

We challenge your team

We encourage challenge and tell your team what they need to hear not just what they want to hear.
