Our People

"I was very pleased .....the meeting exceeded my expectation and the part New World played was crucial."
... Charity, Lord Stone of Blackheath

New World is a WYSIWYG consulting firm - the seniors you meet are the ones you will find doing the front-line work with you. We do not operate a model where seniors have just limited involvement at the beginning and end; we firmly believe that the maximum value-added comes from senior people working with you day-to-day.
