Connect Three reveals expansion plans after surpassing £1m turnover
Management consultancy firm, Connect Three, has unveiled ambitious expansion plans, following a surge in revenues that saw it break the £1 million turnover mark for the first time.
The Glasgow-based company, established in 2014 by CEO Colin Lamb, witnessed a 71% year-on-year increase in revenue for the year ending March 2023, driven by securing new contracts across the public, private, and third sectors.
Specialising in training services such as equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI), growth and change management, and environmental and sustainable governance (ESG), Connect Three has seen demand rise sharply in response to the evolving workplace dynamics post-pandemic, The Herald reports.
Mr Lamb said: “The world of work has changed immeasurably in the past two years, and organisations and leaders at all levels are treating new aspects of working culture including EDI, skills development, sustainability, and workplace wellbeing not only as legal requirements but as essential pillars of their business strategy.
“Many are not yet fully equipped with the expertise and experience to implement these policies and practices effectively, and that’s why many are turning to us to help them deliver them.”
In the past year, the firm successfully secured major contracts with the Scottish Government, its economic development agency, Scottish Enterprise, as well as with NHS 24, Glasgow City Council, and Capability Scotland. It also made significant strides in the private sector, particularly within the renewable energy, life sciences, digital, and tech sectors.
In light of these developments, Mr Lamb has announced plans to invest in the workforce, particularly by recruiting a chief inclusion officer and a chief sustainability officer.
