History

Vision – Establishment

The idea of establishing a world-class public policy & strategy advisory firm was born on the campus of Harvard University as a result of a partnership between an academic and a venture capitalist. The founders’ vision was to combine the best academic rigour, policy knowledge, and innovation to enhance government policies and performance tangibly. Whiteshield was after that established.

Building our vision while growing

Whiteshield’s first offices opened in London and Dublin, with staff from Harvard and OECD communities. From the outset, the firm built its vision on innovation in government, world-class expertise and breakthrough policy models such as the ‘Country Knowledge Mapping (Harvard Business Review 2012), Future of Manufacturing Barometer (Harvard Business Review 2014, World Economic Forum 2014), ‘Whole of Country Navigator’©, ‘Geo-capability mapping’©, and Global Labour Resilience Index ©.

Helping OECD and transitioning countries

The firm grew rapidly thereafter, helping OECD and transitioning countries identify and leverage their knowledge and innovation potential. In 2013, Whiteshield established four new functional practices covering economic public policy, strategy, technology for policy, and next-generation capabilities to continue supporting its clients globally.

Today …

Today, the firm has more than ten offices and representations globally, covering Europe (London regional office), the Middle East and Africa (Dubai regional Office), Eurasia (Nur Sultan regional office), and the Americas (Vancouver). As Whiteshield celebrates its first decade of operations, the partners and staff of the firm remain entirely determined to pursue continuous policy innovation to support governments, international organisations and corporations to positively transform lives.
