About us: Delivering Value Growth

Red Kite Management Consulting was founded to help the organisations to gain more value from their capabilities, particularly with new technologies, environmental issues or where there is a complex 'landscape' of customers, competitors and stakeholders.  


We started as Red Kite Enterprise and Environment, helping businesses to gain value by working better with environmental issues.  But we found greater value in a wider spread of work, so while we work with several clients in environmentally-related fields, it is often on their business strategy and growth plans.


Our founder, Robin Tucker has over 30 years of experience in business strategy in B2B, B2C and non-commercial sectors.  Its partners are chosen for their expertise in helping organisations to deliver practical business results in practice.
