Zenira Business Intelligence Announces Formation of Pioneering Alliance

In a significant move that underscores the power of strategic collaboration and ethical business practices, five internationally recognised consultancies known for their leadership in using ethics and compliance to propel business growth have formed the Zenira Business Intelligence Alliance. 

The spark that gave birth to this groundbreaking initiative was an urgent request by an African state government, seeking international funding for a critical business and economic development project. 

“The state’s leaders came to our members for a proposal because they understand the necessity and reputational power of building their business plan on a foundation of compliance and ethics,” said Jason Meyer of Lead Good, a co-founding member of the alliance. “This is Zenira’s core: business, planning and marketing savvy with compliance and ethics deep in our DNA.”  

Zenira Business Intelligence brings together expertise from four continents across: 

  • Financial crime (with a particular emphasis on anti-bribery and corruption)
  • Financial and Business Modelling 
  • Business Development and Entrepreneurship
  • Ethics and Integrity
  • Governance
  • Compliance
  • Organizational Culture and Values 
  • Risk Assessment and Management
  • Ethical leadership 
  • Strategic Marketing, Branding, and Comms 

This collaboration is designed to infuse ethical considerations and compliance standards at the heart of business practices, aligning with clients who have a vision for a transparent, accountable, and thriving economic landscape.

“Our international team at Zenira Business Intelligence is dedicated to supporting ethical and compliant decision-makers across the spectrum – from ambitious founders at the pre-launch stage to visionary leaders in commercial and governmental sectors,” said Tom Brown of T Brown Consulting Limited e, a co-founding member of Zenira Business Intelligence. “This alliance embodies our commitment to not just achieving short-term goals, but ensuring long-term sustainability and ethical integrity of businesses.  In the African region, for example, this can be an especially potent approach to attracting international investment.”

The Zenira Business Intelligence Alliance leverages proprietary methodologies that span across strategic approach, operations, legal frameworks, customer engagement, and beyond. By ensuring a multidimensional approach led by ethics and compliance to business planning, the alliance aims to elevate projects from conception to successful execution and sustainable growth.

“Our methodology is built on the premise that strategic optimization should not be siloed but integrated across all facets of a business plan,” Brown added. “We are excited to embark on this journey, bringing together the best minds and resources in hopes of supporting the African state government in achieving its ambitious and compliant economic objectives.”
