We always strive to achieve outstanding performance and use our entire expertise to find the best individual solution for the challenges of our clients. We work in an integrated manner, think ahead, and take new paths. We are reliable and quick. We want to positively surprise our clients on a continuous basis – with perfect execution of creative and tailor-made concepts.
For the success of our client, we jointly work across all practices and locations. Our strength is the ability to encourage the know-how, commitment, and skills of every individual and unite them in one team. We win together when working for our clients and dealing with one another.
We want to be proud of everything we do. We take the right path, not the simple one. Everything we do is inspired by honesty, respect, openness, trust, and fairness.
We think and act independently, with the freedom of an entrepreneur. We are open to new ideas and ready to follow them. We stand by our opinions, if need be, even against resistance. We develop innovative solutions for communicative challenges that arise from the steady change of the corporate world – because we search for the opportunities that change can bring, even for ourselves.
We feel responsible for the advice we provide to our clients and for the tasks our clients entrust us with. The well-being and healthy balance of those we work with every day is just as important to us as the loyalty and the performance we promise our clients.
Hering Schuppener Consulting combines its expertise in classic corporate and capital markets communications, corporate & public affairs, as well as the digital world to integrated, interdisciplinary solutions tailored for the respective task. We develop these in close cooperation with our clients and with their perspective in mind.
We execute with precision, discipline, and diligence on the basis of our experience, expertise, trust, and integrity. We are committed to providing the best possible solutions with the best teams and thus visibly add value for our clients.
We go the extra-mile. We will not rest until our mission is completed in the best possible way and our client is satisfied.
Expertise is our key competitive edge. We not only familiarise ourselves with new issues, we master them. We offer our clients the knowledge and experience of the entire consultancy across disciplines, teams, and locations.
Each and every project or task deserves to be considered on its own terms. We distrust ready-made solutions and avoid the beaten path. We eagerly take new directions, if they are promising. We are curious and creative. We think laterally and ahead of the curve. Our goal is to set new standards for our industry and ourselves.
Our clients think and act globally. So do we. Cross-border projects and coordinated cooperation within multinational teams are a natural part of our activities. We offer the best possible advice and implementation expertise across regions and disciplines, preferably in close collaboration with our strategic partner Finsbury.
We are uncompromisingly with our values. We follow our beliefs – even against resistance, if need be. And we place the same trust in our clients and partners that they place in us. We consider reliability, decency, and fair-play to be crucial maxims for success.
