Critical service delivery during Covid19 and beyond


In 2020, our consultancy work accelerated the design and deployment of critical services related to COVID and EU-exit. Having previous experience working with offshore teams, Thinkamigo adapted to remote working during the pandemic and continue to maintain a productive mix of governance-led, creative, commercial and academic projects.

We anticipate further accelerated growth and business transformation as a result of increased remote working. Thinkamigo are here to help organisations survive, thrive and prosper in what has become a period of great change, uncertainty and opportunity.
