Creating Conditions for

Collaboration to Thrive

The unprecedented rates of change that exist today require organisations to improve collaboration within and beyond their organisation. Founded in 2011 by Simon Preston, RISE partners with clients to grow their organisational capacity to fully develop and implement their strategic intent.


Learning and

Executive Group Alignment

We take experience seriously

We start with finding the right questions rather than rushing to provide answers. Activities may include workplace observations and shadowing, work exchanges, and working collaboratively on cross-functional projects.    

Experts in blended learning

Our experience and expertise in online facilitation and blended learning enables us to run immersive learning experiences without the expense or distraction of having to leave the work environment. 

Innovative technical support

All our work is supported by suitable technological solutions. The RISE App makes it possible for participants to have a range of tools at their fingertips and our online learning system provides more in-depth learning resources.

truly experimental approach

No off the shelf products, but rather a growing resources library supporting our constantly evolving collaboration framework. The framework depicts our current understanding of the bare bones of transformative collaboration in organisations.

Increasing uncertainty demands agility, adaptability and resilience.

Our vision is to see people and organisations collaborating and
rising to the challenges of the 21st Century.
