Convert Innovation and Creativity into wealth

Cloudbreak Consulting

We combine expertise and flexibility to better respond to the challenges organizations face in developed, emerging and frontier markets. Cloudbreak activities are organized in two main work streams, Innovation & Intangible Assets management, and International Development and we praise ourself for actually combining these two work streams in order to achieve greater impact. 

Cloudbreak has an office in Paris and Nairobi, close contacts in Tokyo, London, Rio and Boston and a global network of like-minded professionals.

How We Work

Commonly speaking we are consultants, meaning that we are providing acumen to people cleverer than us but that need either an external view on the issue they face, or have no problem to solve but a budget to spend.

In both cases, we believe in the added value of our responses specifically developed in collaboration with our clients to help them bridge the gap between aspirations and realization.

Expertise, humility, integrity, curiosity, humor and creativity are the main personal values of our consultants; ethic, results, tailored service, and impact are our collective values.

That said like most consultants we prepare briefs, memo, slides, reports and other deliverables; we have meetings, calls, videoconferences and progress reviews; we give ballpark numbers and takeaway; we have scope, POA, work stream and granular analysis…
