Who We Are
A GLOBAL BUSINESS ADVISORY
Universal Consensus, LLC has one objective – to help companies and organizations succeed in a globalized world. As cultural interactions with international and domestic stakeholders increase, the old domestic rules for how to do business no longer apply. Organizations stuck in ethnocentric thinking, rather than objective-centric thinking will fail; companies prepared for a globalized economy as well as a diverse multicultural home market will triumph.
Universal Consensus uses a proprietary framework, the BMIA™ [Business Model of Intercultural Analysis] to evaluate the pain-points and growth opportunities presented by doing business across cultures, both internationally and domestically. We then develop customized solutions including cultural assessments, cultural integration & transformation, global strategic advising, cultural and D&I training, train-the-trainer certification, executive coaching, process optimization, and other facilitated programs for business improvement and increased sustainable profitability.
We bring together a world-class team of companies and specialists who have spent a life-time building the kind of connections required to grow internationally. If you’re looking for strategic advice, customers, distributors, partners, or services globally – begin your journey by talking to the pros at Universal Consensus.
As a result of our collaboration agreement with Aon Hewitt, we are the cultural strategic arm of a corporate transactions team comprised of world leaders who have successfully led and managed some of the most significant, successful and complex global transactions in modern history. Aon, through its more than 65,000 staff members worldwide, serves clients in over 120 countries. Among other things, they are experts in mergers, acquisitions, spin-offs, divestitures and joint ventures; leaders in the human capital transformation and transactions arena; and leading counselors of corporate transitions related to human capital assets.
