Team Contacts


Chris Brock   

Chris has worked at the highest level of island government in strategic planning, economics, tourism & hospitality, and utility services.  He is attributed to the origination and subsequent adoption of many successful and practicable initiatives covering economic strategy, land use planning, population management, tourism development, and statistical analysis.


In the private sector, Chris pioneered a unique research capability which not only benchmarked island economic, social and environmental strategies and policies around the world but also identified best practice in many areas.


Given the current very challenging times, Chris' experience and expertise gained over many years, is an invaluable asset to draw upon when addressing the implications of these concerns on the effective performance of island-based public and private sector organisations.  This work has further enhanced his already extensive island experience and knowledge base.


Chris is a Member of the Royal Institute of International Affairs - Chatham House.

Mariessa Fossey

Our emphasis is always working with (rather than for) our clients and, therefore, Mariessa's primary focus is to ensure that excellent client-facing relationships are always the first priority. 

Mariessa has held a number of high-level administrative roles in a wide range of organisations.  She has always delivered projects on time and on budget with client needs and expectations being met at all times.  

Ongoing communication with government departments and the private sector is also a crucial aspect of Mariessa’s responsibilities in terms of keeping pace with ever-changing demands globally.  This has never been more important than at the present time.
