Our Philosophy

We share what we know. So who we are is what makes us different and underpins how you benefit.

BBB uses knowledge networks and the principles of knowledge management, including the concept of ‘Ba’, or a shared space for knowledge creation, originally proposed by Japanese philosopher Kitaro Nishida. It means that whilst you have one Account Manager, you have the benefit of the skills of us all when you need it.

We pick the best people in our field, match them to you by what they can do, what they have experienced, who they are and how to use this to best help you.
