Core Five was founded in 2012 around five core values:
INTEGRITY – Being consistent, honest and accurate.
COLLABORATION – With clients, designers and each other achieves the best possible outcome.
INDEPENDENCE – Of thought, advice and ownership.
PARTNERSHIP – Our commitment to advance the mutual interests of our clients and colleagues.
INNOVATION – Improving on yesterday’s solutions by testing conventional thinking.
Since inception we have strived to embody our core values in all that we do, and this has been all the more the case with the recent Coronavirus outbreak. During this unprecedented time we have been doing everything we can do assist our Clients and colleagues in managing the impact of the pandemic on their projects and lives. We have also been considering what we as a business can do to ensure we continue to Collaborate with our Clients and fellow consultants, and provide our Independent thought and advice in the best medium possible.
To this end we are proud to announce our ‘Core Forums’ series of webinars which will be taking place throughout May and into June.
These weekly webinars, led by our team of in-house experts, aims to provide thoughtful and considered discussion on the key topics affecting our industry, in engaging and interactive bite-size slots. The topics will cover the various impacts of Covid-19 but also some of the wider topics which remain essential for our industry such as the rising sustainability agenda. The first three webinars in the Core Futures series are below, with sign-up links for the first two. Content and sign-up links for later webinars will follow closer to the time. We hope you find the content useful, and please do get in touch if you would like to suggest any areas for future discussion.
