Accreditations & Awards

The DPA team holds a number of awards and professional accreditations. Here are just a few.

How we work

One of the things we’re most proud of is the length of relationships we have with leaders and organisations, many extending back 10-20 years. We believe this is because of four priorities we hold dear.

Mutual ambition
The first is a mutual ambition to the work. We treat each client’s business challenge as if it was our own. Mutual ambition is about deeply understanding our client’s reality, desired outcomes and the realistic nature of possibility. Together this creates a shared agenda, unlocking the full potential of our client’s business and our capabilities.

Deeper design
Second is deeper design. We seek to see problems and solutions holistically, so our work delivers real, long term value. The diversity of thinking and skills at DPA encourage everyone to think outside of their own expertise.

True partnership
This leads to true partnership; because breakthroughs in performance – genuine differentiation, innovation, real leadership shifts, progressive organisational design – require significant trust to build collaboration. Our model, and our values, are founded on creating lasting partnerships with clients.

Focus on outcomes
Finally, this creates a real focus on outcomes. Taking shared responsibility for results has some important implications. Religiously sticking to a brief, when it’s clear we won’t achieve the result, is worthless. We adapt rapidly to what we learn, whilst keeping the ‘red thread’. We believe in being inspiring leaders with our clients and having the vision, skills and emotional courage to make things happen.
