Creating a vibrant media group from a disparate set of brands by implementing a new operating model that increased profitability, customer service and employee engagement.
We helped the Guardian achieve a significant uplift in digital revenue and overall profitability. This was done by creating a new digital-first and globally-focused strategy, then implementing a new operating model to deliver it.
KPMG Boxwood was engaged to implement an ambitious expansion strategy for the fashion arm of a global retailer, designing and executing a multi-channel international expansion plan while continuing to grow the core UK business.
“The publishing business has gone from strength to strength – we are driving growth into markets that people were only too ready to write off. We have come a very long way in a very short period of time.”
“The passion, capability and execution skills of the KPMG Boxwood team have made a difference since day one. Without their help we would not have been able to accomplish as much as we have in such a short space of time.”
“Boxwood was prepared to get their hands dirty and really make things happen, Their ability to relate to our people at all levels meant they quickly built up a high level of credibility. Boxwood was instrumental in creating a culture that allowed us to make the changes we needed to make and do more with less.”
“You guys care more about our business than our own employees.”
“It’s human nature to dwell on why we shouldn’t do something. But often, it’s better to just get on with it and work through the obstacles”
“The team of consultants was as skilled as you would expect. What was unexpected was the speed with which the individuals were able to adapt their styles to work with people at the Guardian whether it was the operations team or the creative areas. Consultants normally stick out like a sore thumb. This time we had the experience of people who quickly learned to both fit in and keep us challenged.”
“I believe there were two key driving factors to the success of this programme: the joint Travelex/Boxwood team adopted a robust and consistent approach and plan to organizational announcements. This was coupled with a genuine understanding amongst the broader team of the future vision and strategy – and importantly, a belief that this is the right next step for Travelex.”
“Boxwood uncovered the real ‘truth about today’ which helped us reset what we did and said, allowing employees to start trusting the leadership again.”
“Boxwood were much more than consultants. They were partners who invested time to really understand our business and they shared our ambitions for all our stakeholders - our people, our customers, and our community - and were every bit as committed as we were to achieving them. Their commitment and focus helped us through some very big, and sometimes very difficult, decisions - and enabled us to create the foundation for a lasting legacy.”
“It has been a very challenging and successful six months. The Board are delighted with the huge progress made and I look forward to working with you to help us deliver the transformation we have embarked on.”
