Be Heard invests in digital strategy consultancy 3pointsDIGITAL
Be Heard Group PLC (“Be Heard”) has acquired a 20% stake in 3pointsDIGITAL (“3PD”) to complement its range of services , and to support 3PD’s growth and broaden its range of strategic advisory services.
3PD is a digital transformation specialist and strategic adviser, highly regarded by a number of international clients including PE and VC firms. The company prides itself on offering a unique, “zero-agenda” approach without the pressures of expanding large teams of consultants, or the need to sell software. 3PD develops strategies and change plans that are objective, practical and value-driven. Beyond initial strategy and planning, the 3PD team often supports clients ‘on the ground’ by leading teams and driving operational change.
3PD will use the investment to expand its range of digital advisory services, and with the help of the Be Heard partnership businesses, will enhance its proprietary Digital Maturity Assessment (DMA) which helps organisations of all types answer some of the most difficult questions relating to digital; the threat, the opportunity and the capability to deliver. The output from the DMA enables the development of clearer strategy, and to scope new digital propositions and change plans.
3PD joins Be Heard’s existing stable of highly capable, agile software, data and marketing businesses: MMT Digital, Agenda21, Freemavens and The Corner. Together with 3PD the partnership can now offer all clients a full-service digital capability, from 360-degree assessment, to digital strategy creation, management, execution and delivery.
Chris Micklethwaite Consulting Principal and Founder of 3PD commented:
“I am delighted 3PD is now part of the Be Heard family and am excited by the development opportunity. By investing in our people and our services, including our Digital Maturity Assessment (DMA), we can strengthen our capabilities, broaden our reach and and deliver even more value to our clients, helping more organisations benefit from the digital revolution.”
Ben Rudman COO of Be Heard and Co-Founder of MMT Ltd commented:
“I am excited about the opportunities that this partnership can bring for both Be Heard and 3PD. We have the highest respect for the 3PD team who have worked with a wide range of international businesses, helping them to adapt to deliver new products and services in today’s fast-paced and ever-changing digital world.”
