How we work
Hewdon Consulting was founded in 2001, and originally specialised in urban regeneration which was then a major policy objective for government. As times and policy have changed, what we do has changed as well, but the way we work has stayed constant:
We work mainly at the interface between the public and private sectors.
We spend as much time being managers as consultants and we have a strong delivery focus.
We have strong technical expertise in areas like appraisal and state aid, but we are also good generalists and co-ordinators.
We can tackle everything from national policy issues to a drive-through burger bar.
We use plain English, we dislike jargon and we are happy to engage with ordinary people.
We have worked everywhere from Cornwall to Northumberland and Swansea to Lowestoft, although we have a special fondness for the east of England.
