What sets Thelem apart:

  • Our people are of the highest calibre and are amongst the most experienced in the industry

  • We work side-by-side with our clients and industry peers

  • We respectfully provide frank advice

  • We work exceptionally hard

Our clients typically share some of the following characteristics:

  • Lumpy project pipeline

    • The organisation cannot manage core resources to meet the peaks and troughs of a number of major projects.

  • Expert support

    • Senior expert advice is required to address a technically difficult, risky or large capital investment.

  • Require Independent Advice

    • Expert opinion is required independently to provide credibility and/ or a fresh review.

  • Resource shortage

    • The organisation does not have the resources currently available to focus on the immediate challenge.

  • Skill gaps or non-core expertise

    • The organisation recognises that the support required is not part of their core skills. An external expert can undertake the task to a higher level of quality and more efficiently.

  • Outsourcing

    • The organisation would rather an external advisor retain and manage certain key risks on their behalf.
