The group of six has formed to provide a new collaborative approach to solving business solutions for destinations, venues, individuals and event companies.

All the members have already established businesses focused on delivering solutions to drive success for companies and global industry brands including strategic management, the development of business planning, B2B event solutions from concept to delivery, human resources, marketing, communications and PR, coaching and mentoring.

Advantage Consultants include: Paul Kennedy MBE, director and owner of Kennedy Integrated Solutions; Elisabeth Hansa, owner of Support & Strategy On Demand; Linda Pereira, executive director of CPL events and CEO of the L&I Communications group; Nina Gardiner, founder & CEO of Spotl1ght Communications; Steen Moller, director and owner of Open The World; and Sue Wilkes, director and owner of SW Business & Events Solutions.

Paul Kennedy MBE, who brought all of those involved together, said: "Bringing together a group of international individuals based in Austria, Denmark, Portugal, and the United Kingdom, we are able to offer a diverse range of strategic skills, opinions and expertise. Sticking to what each of us does best, our combined depth and breadth of different skill sets - all of us have our own independent consultancy businesses - means we can offer our services either as a group or individually, depending on the solutions that we present to our clients."

Sue Wilkes added: "I have often talked to people in our industry about the idea of bringing together a collective approach to solving business problems. We all work with specific individual skill sets, but often there is a missing link to finding the right expertise to solving a business problem holistically rather than just thinking and acting as if one size fits all! We come together knowing that each of us has a role to play and an opinion to reference against.  I personally think this is a big opportunity to help support this industry internationally and to build success for others."
