Risk management consulting, information and cyber security and regulatory compliance.
Change and risk are inevitable; they are part and parcel of today’s dynamic operating landscape. Evolving technologies, world events and social and political shifts present opportunities and stimulate innovation, but they also mean the environment companies operate in is increasingly volatile and uncertain. New threats to organisations’ ability to deliver on their promises appear every day, both externally and within their own systems, processes and organisation. Organisations that stand still and don’t address the ever-evolving nature of the risks they face, become increasingly vulnerable.
With first-hand, deep sector experience and specialised risk advisory expertise we help our customers identify and assess the risk potential and build in resilience. Our customers can confidently undertake change programmes, embrace innovation and meet strategic objectives.

We create pragmatic solutions that deliver client value
We are focused on delivering the right outcome for our clients, fulfilling varying requirements from organisations facing rapid change across multiple sectors, large corporates, not for profit, small and medium-sized enterprises looking for impactful solutions.
We have a dedicated team of risk management professionals, bringing together the best of breed and great minds with a multi-disciplinary expertise, enabling us to act faster and smarter. Each consultant has a minimum of 10 years’ experience and has held Senior or Executive Management roles.
Focus on partnering
We take an integrated approach and operate as an extension of our clients’ teams, establishing deep longer-term relationships. Everything we deliver is tailored to our clients’ individual needs and we share and hand over the intellectual property and deliverables created during a client’s project.
Honest and transparent
We promote an ethical culture, demonstrating high standards and objectivity. We keep our commitments and are nothing but honest when we are not in a position to meet a requirement.
Everything we do as an organisation is underpinned by our values. Our culture, our service delivery and our leadership demonstrate the principles that we hold at the core of our business.
We believe that diversity and inclusion bring exciting opportunities, that innovation holds the key to tomorrow’s accomplishments and that integrity is a fundamental standard.
The relationships we build with our people, our partners and suppliers and the communities we work in are born of the utmost respect, and our clients’ ambitions are the driving force behind each and every project we undertake.
Protecting our environment
We take seriously our responsibility to understand the impact our activities have on our environment and to take steps to minimise, and eliminate wherever possible, waste, pollution, energy and physical resources and, crucially, greenhouse gas emissions.
All electronic devices are turned off at night. We hold meetings virtually instead of face to face wherever possible. We do not use company cars and encourage our people to use public transport. We recycle as many consumable materials as possible. We source equipment with the lowest power usage that is practical and always recycle redundant hardware.
We ensure all business processes are in line with current legislation and best practice environmental management systems. The Shearwater Group including Xcina Consulting is carbon neutral.
Nothing is more important to us than our people. We work hard to create a working environment that promotes their wellbeing, provides fulfilment and development and aligns with the social and environmental initiatives that they support.
Although current working modes mean that they are often physically apart, we facilitate regular contact and involvement across all our team members both professionally and socially. We actively support our people to live well, with programmes designed to enhance their happiness, healthiness and engagement at work. Training and career development opportunities are provided both as company-wide initiatives and in specific areas for different staff. We value everyone in the organisation as an individual and all are encouraged and supported to succeed regardless of their age, disability, race, religion, gender and sexual orientation.
Our diversity, breadth of experience and expertise in risk management and operational controls provides a strong platform from which to ensure a rigorous and robust governance is applied by our leadership. We are especially committed to ensuring that our environmental and social initiatives are able to evolve and grow and continue to have a positive impact on our people, the environment and the communities we work with within.
