The Partners

In Pro-Lead we believe in hiring people smarter than ourselves. But the best and brightest people are rarely open for traditional job offers - they are busy pursuing their own careers as researchers or self-employed business consultants.

So we offer something that is hard to get as an individual: Joint research projects, seminars where we share insights and co-create new concepts, and the privilege of working with other high-calibre individuals. 


Each partner is carefully selected based on our professional experience in working closely with them as former colleagues, clients or vendors for an extensive span of time. Partners in Pro-Lead are always individuals, and never companies, as we believe that chemistry and close personal relationships are key components to the success of our collaboration, and when working on joint projects with our clients. Collectively we boast of more than 200 years of international leadership and HR development experience, over 100 years of academical research and teaching experience, and +25 business books or A-rated research articles published.
