Gate One is an award-winning specialist management consultancy that recently launched a presence in the Irish market. Established in 2013, we design and deliver some of the world’s largest and most complex business and digital transformations. We exist to deliver meaningful change. It is our core belief and mission statement, driving everything we do. And we are bringing our capabilities and experience to help new and existing clients who operate in the Irish market.

For our clients

In a world where the rate of change is rapidly accelerating, but most initiatives fail to live up to expectations, meaningful change means:

  • tackling our client’s toughest challenges and accelerating their boldest ambitions
  • being more invested in our clients’ success – and being fun to work with
  • achieving lasting change and results, long after we’ve left.

For our team

For those that join us, meaningful change for our team means:

  • working with inspiring and talented individuals in an organisation that lives up to its values
  • experiencing a wide variety of interesting projects with top brands and organisations
  • benefiting from huge amounts of autonomy to shape your own rewarding professional journey.

For our community

For our wider community, meaningful change is about:

  • committing to be a sustainably conscious consulting firm, with the aim of achieving B Corp certification in 2021
  • using our skills to give back to charity and to the communities in which we work
  • creating an increasingly diverse and inclusive environment where our thinking is grounded in a range of views and experiences.

Why Gate One?

Your vision enabled

We work at a powerful intersection, where business meets digital and deep strategic thinking meets inspired execution, to deliver meaningful and lasting change across your organisation.

Working with us feels different, because it is different

We create partnerships that go much deeper than traditional consultancies. We become a trusted partner in your business, relishing the challenges and taking responsibility for the results.

We understand innovation from the inside out

We think like entrepreneurs because that’s exactly what we are. Our in-house Incubator is unique in our sector, and it profoundly shapes our culture of curiosity and innovation. We don’t do off-the-shelf; every problem is the most important and we apply fresh thinking every time.

We combine consultancy with creativity

We’re a proud member of Havas, one of the world’s largest digital, creative and entertainment networks. We partner and draw inspiration from our sister agencies in the Havas Village to deliver more exciting, creative and sustainable change for our clients.

Our values

We are an inclusive, non-hierarchical team of management consultants united by our common values.

EMPATHY

We do not presume to know our clients’ business better than they do. We apply our expertise and solutions once we listen and understand.

GRIT

We each take accountability for results: leading, digging deep and staying the course to see things through to a successful conclusion.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

We seek to innovate and come up with new ways of thinking and doing, challenging prevailing assumptions, and always minimising complexity to quickly drive results.

ASPIRATION

We aspire to excellence and relish taking on the tough challenges that have thwarted others. We seek to inspire others to do the same.

HUMILITY

A sense of camaraderie with our colleagues and clients is essential to us and we never take ourselves too seriously.

CANDOUR

Integrity, trust and openness are our bedrocks, however difficult the message. Challenge and speaking your mind are encouraged and we always stand up for our clients’ best interests.

EMPATHIE

Nous ne prétendons pas connaître nos clients mieux qu’eux. Nous proposons notre expertise et nos solutions une fois que nous vous avons écouté et compris.

TENACITÉ

Nous sommes tous responsables des résultats : mener, intensifier et maintenir le cap nous permet de mener les projets à bien.

ENTREPRENEURIAT

Nous cherchons à innover et à trouver de nouvelles façons de penser et de faire, en remettant en question les hypothèses dominantes et en minimisant la complexité pour générer rapidement des résultats.

ASPIRATION

Nous aspirons à l’excellence et à la passion de relever les défis que les autres n’ont pas pu surmonter.

HUMILITÉ

Un sentiment de camaraderie avec nos collègues et nos clients est essentiel pour nous et nous ne nous prenons jamais trop au sérieux.

FRANCHISE

Intégrité, confiance et ouverture sont nos maitre mots, aussi difficile que soit le message. Nous nous battons toujours pour les intérêts de nos clients.
