OUR VALUES DRIVE ALL THAT WE DO.
We’re an independent and collaborative network of colleagues providing high-value solutions in governance, risk, control, assurance, legal and regulatory compliance. We help boards, audit and risk committees, directors, and executives to act with confidence. We are united in our commitment and passion to help businesses behave responsibly and achieve their purpose.
WHAT WE STAND FOR.
Sharing the same values brings out the very best in people: great minds think alike. So it’s important to us that these values emanate from every individual involved in our business and create a sense of purpose that drives the spirit of who we are.
As a team we invested time to really work out what matters to us – and then to write it down so we can hold ourselves accountable. These are the values that underpin how we act together, with our clients, colleagues, collaborators and wider communities.
THESE AREN’T JUST WORDS: THEY’RE THE FOUNDATION OF WHAT WE DO AND HOW WE’LL SUPPORT YOU.
WE ACT WITH COURAGE.
We are bold and brave; we empower our stakeholders to do the right thing; we say it as it is so that the difficult messages are heard; we behave with loyalty and respect.
WE ARE PASSIONATE.
We believe in the value we bring to organisations; work should be fun and we are fulfilled when it is; we are playful and creative.
WE ENJOY COLLABORATING.
We believe in the power of many minds; we take pride in building our team and working with others; we are not afraid of facing into challenge.
WE ARE CURIOUS AND PIONEERING.
We search out ways to innovate; we are disruptive yet pragmatic; we always endeavour to find additional insight and value.
WE ARE COMMERCIALLY-ASTUTE.
We enable organisations to thrive; we create commercially and strategically sound solutions; we embed sustainable and resilient transformations.
WE DELIVER WITH CONVICTION.
We walk the talk; we are disciplined and committed at all times; we apply evidence and rigour to deliver with real substance.
WE ARE AUTHENTIC.
We are open, honest and transparent at all times; we are not afraid to show our vulnerability; we value empathy and kindness in all our interactions.
WHY WE CREATED BRAVE.
WE HELP YOU MEET THE CHALLENGES THAT COME WITH A RAPIDLY CHANGING RISK AND REGULATORY CLIMATE.
Acting responsibly is not always easy. There are tensions between the needs of different stakeholders. As experienced professionals we understand the challenges with navigating these tensions and how doing the right thing is not always straightforward. We founded Brave because we believe we can do more to manage risk appropriately, focus on purpose and build confidence to take the decisions that matter.
We are evolving and developing how we support clients. Originally established as Brave Consultancy, we are now a partnership operating as Brave Within LLP, reflecting our commitment to driving great governance practices within the organisations we support. We combine deep expertise in legal and regulatory compliance with a broad range of experience across assurance, risk and control. What makes us different is our shared values and purpose.
We’re here to transform the value our profession provides, by delivering tangible results. We created Brave to provide flexible resources and reduce in-house or large consultancy costs, while building the trust and confidence you need to make brave decisions.
“We must hold businesses accountable, but we are best when we do this in a way that is pragmatic, value-oriented and commercially sound. We can only be effective if we bring leaders at all levels with us, so that they are prepared to act on our recommendations and respond to our findings.
We have to be brave enough to call out the real issues, but empathetic in understanding the personal consequences and emotions associated with this.”
FOUNDING PARTNER, BRAVE.
