Our international network of intelligence, law enforcement, military, media, academic and government professionals enables us to provide exceptional international consultancy services to the public, private and third sectors.
We specialise in providing actionable and predictive intelligence, not just information. An intelligence brief from us will answer specific questions drawn up to help you take the decisions needed to progress your business or project. We will provide you with an assessment of the specific likelihood that an event will/will not come to pass and we will never use ‘weasel words’ (might, could, maybe, perhaps, etc) to cover our backs.
All contracts begin with the preparation of a detailed collection plan for the client, covering every stage of the intelligence cycle, and end with a follow-up conference call to ensure the client has everything that they need.
We offer highly competitive rates, starting from as little as £1,750 for a written intelligence assessment (see example) based on the work of a team of three analysts/researchers.
Our consultancy is a social enterprise, with all profits used to support our own core peace and security work, including offering subsidised or occasional pro bono consultancy work for non-profits on limited budgets. All the activities of our consultancy are guided by our ethical and environmental policies.
Open Briefing provided an invaluable service to us, conducting high-quality research in an extremely tight timeframe and with a limited budget. The unique and wide-ranging pool of expertise available ensured that our very specific requests were met with the utmost precision.”
