Our scope of work

Strategy Assessment

The development, realisation and constant re-evaluation of the strategic positioning of your company is a key element of any entrepreneurial activity. More often than not the Asia strategy is a copy of the strategies from western markets. Such strategies fall short of country specific necessities which are essential to make your venture a success.

Project Management

Any project or effort needs to be managed by a team of professionals who know the tools and have the right education/skill set in order to manage a project in time and within budget. Controlling the milestones and interacting with your local partners is a key to success.

Finance & Investments/VC

The project financing and provision of capital are often a key success factor for project development. GBP works successfully with financial institutions, venture capitalists and angel investors for many years. Sustainable project funding will be reviewed in a transparent process and negotiated together with our clients. The successful structuring of project financing has been one of the main GBP International strengths. Through our international connections in the financial industry, we can structure successful financing models. In selected cases, GBP International is also involved as an equity partner.

Interim Management

The GBP International database on interim managers allows for short term assignments. If critical company functions are vacant for too long or if special skills are required to turn a company back into profitability you will find the right people with us.

Tender Consulting

Government organisations or large organisations often call for tenders. This is where a proper tender management needs to be in place at the customer’s side. The formal requirements and the needs for local content are constantly rising and you need to cope with it.

HR & Organization

Interim Management

Human Resources are a key to success no matter where in the world your business works. Putting the right people to the right place at the right time is the main success criterion for every project. Nothing is more stable than change, especially in a difficult cultural environment. Not all companies can always and immediately take account of this.

This gap is ideal for HR interim management – flexible, fast and competent.More than 300 fast-acting interim managers from many different industries are available in our network to support your company and solve bottlenecks.Interim Management is a special service for shortages in your projects.It is about the temporary use of specialists and executives within the framework of firmly defined projects.

Interim Management is a personnel procurement tool for the short-term, time-flexible retrieval of experienced specialists, managers and executives.No case is the same, and yet all cases have something in common: our experienced GBP interim managers do their jobs quickly, on time and on budget.

If you are looking for an HR expert as an interim manager for your company, it usually has to go fast. In addition, the candidate’s profile should fit well with your requirements. Matching requires a process that cannot be achieved quickly without an exact knowledge of the qualifications and availability of an interim manager.

Sourcing

Over the years, GBP has completed sourcing assignments in various service and manufacturing industries.

Sourcing in Asia has specific challenges, mostly fueled by cultural differences that keep playing a role even in globalised economies. Following a transparently structured approach, our consultants also emphasize communication with our clients in sourcing projects, so that expectations do not fail to meet reality and real added value can be created.

The same applies to successful sourcing in Europe for Asian customers: it is crucial to understand the respective economies from more perspectives than mere numbers. We build a bridge for our Asian customers to understand the specifics of Europe’s markets so that their investment and business activities run smoothly and have the desired effect.

We help you in establishing sales offices and a distributor network in order to increase your revenue and profit in the target region.

Strategy Practice

Strategy development and strategy assessment is the supreme discipline in consulting.

It is here where the wheat is separated from the chaff. We consider ourselves not only as experts with a successful track record since 1997, we are consultants with heart. This is most important for us. We want to understand our customers in-depth, so that we can customize strategies according to their needs, always in accordance with a certain market’s specifics. Our consultants contribute perspectives from various backgrounds and industries, offering conventional and unconventional solutions for your projects. This applies for our Asian customers in Europe and vice versa, for our big customers in traditional industries and small start-ups that want to cast their net wide.
