Our goal is to empower our clients to be the very best they can be, making their businesses more successful, building stronger communities and, ultimately, a more sustainable world.
We live and breathe our values, which shine through in everything we do:
Black Isle was founded in Edinburgh in 1990 by John Miers, to coach and advise leaders how to be superb when speaking in public or informally.
Our Toronto Office was opened the following year to service large North American clients, amongst them Boeing, Xerox, CIBC and Bank of Montreal.
In 1993, the Hong Kong office was established. Companies based in India, Korea and Singapore were quickly added to the group’s growing list of clients and the Asian team grew from strength to strength.
Our Australian office was established a year later to deliver consistent service to global clients, and also work with domestic institutions like Telstra, Commonwealth Bank, McKinsey & Company, BHP, Australia Post, Clayton Utz and AMP.
In our first decade, we worked on some of the most prestigious projects in the world and earned global recognition: Hong Kong Trainer of the Year Award and coaching the highly commended Toronto Olympic bid team.
Since then we have expanded our team and skill set to offer business strategy, leadership development, data analytics and organisation transformation.
We have changed the way we do business, offering our content in person or remotely. We work with many of the world’s leading financial institutions, law firms and professional services firms with offices in places as diverse as New York, Shanghai, Tokyo and Dubai as well as our four global offices in London, Hong Kong, Sydney and Toronto.
