Magellan Strategies Limited is a consultancy firm specialising in helping clients who have complex reforms or high-risk investment projects to implement. We have learned from experiences gained from around the world that whether you want to implement a reform, or a mega project politics is decisive.
The relevant political arena might be a local government, a province, a nation-state or it might be regional or global, or partly all the above. What is crucial is that whatever it is that you want to achieve it is the relevant political arena that will either deliver it or block it. As a result, our speciality is working with clients to navigate the political arena and align key stakeholders. What we do is assemble teams from our global network of associates to respond to client needs.
