We are a value creation advisory service.

Fronesys is a global partnership of associates. We help cities and companies
deliver integrated thinking through a value-based approach.

Our purpose is to inspire practical wisdom in organisations and their leaders.
Fronesys carries out research, consulting and training in two domains:
Cities and Corporate organisations.


We help companies embed integrated thinking for long-term value creation.

Companies are a powerful force for change. The revenues of many corporations exceed the GDP of most countries, and the private sector employs the majority of the global workforce. The way companies are run has the power to shape the long-term health of our economies, our societies, and the environment.


Cities are critical to the future of the planet. Today cities generate around 80% of global GDP, and three-fourths of the world’s population will live in cities by 2030. Fronesys believes urbanization holds the key to sustainable growth, if cities can become inclusive, safe and resilient.
