Our Areas of Expertise

Education Project Management

Business Transformation

“Silica are the rarest of powerhouses: deeply knowledgeable, positive and efficient. As important as their ability to engage effectively across stakeholders, is their ability to challenge assumptions to ensure better outcomes”

What We Do

We specialise in assisting individuals and companies to explore and exploit their own abilities to transform their businesses using tried and tested techniques to enhance their own or their company’s performance.
There is no rocket science involved. It’s just simply about taking the time out to assess and take advantage of the opportunities that are around us.
In education we support schools and other educational institutions in a wide area including: fully project managing the conversion of a school to academy status, evaluation and development of multi academy trusts and programme managing the merger of FE colleges, to name but a few.
The motto for our business is ‘Helping people to help themselves’.

The Difference

Our approach to consultancy and project management is to always engage representatives of all levels of the business or educational institution(i.e. not just the Sponsors) in Workshop settings to promote a joint working and ownership mindset. But most importantly, part of our methodology is that we train & coach you and leave you with skills, tools & techniques to allow you to internally manage process and change initiatives in the future.

This is borne from our own personal frustrating experience of working in companies where we constantly relied on external expertise for these types of challenges.
