The LOOKOUT! Team


The story behind LOOKOUT!

Over many years of delivering great solutions and services, our clients have frequently told us how different we are to other consultancies they have used.

Fast forward to 2015, a record year for our business, and we decided that this was the time for us to establish a brand that tells our story, articulates what we do, emphasises our passion and makes our clients smile. With this in mind LOOKOUT! was born.

But to explain why we believe LOOKOUT! is the perfect identity for our company we thought that this extract from the ‘Navy Lookout Training Book’ will tell you the story of the ‘lookout’ and why we feel that we have such a synergy with them. (Even if you don’t read all of this, just tab down to the last line).

 

The Navy Lookout Training Book

“A lookout is a person detailed to observe everything within an assigned sector and to report everything seen in or heard from that sector to the officer of the deck (OOD) and the combat information center (CIC) watch officer. The safety and efficiency of the ship depend to a great degree on the alertness and effectiveness of lookouts…

The LOOKOUT! Creed (Promise!)

“What is a creed” we hear you ask. Well, as you will have no doubt noted the LOOKOUT! ethos is very much inspired by ‘lookouts’ who have worked the sea. Critically they provide a ship’s Captain with insights to help them determine their next move, be it to avoid disaster, win a battle, save time or rescue a damsel in distress!

Before you wonder where this is going there is something called the “Sailor’s Creed”. We really liked what the creed stands for, so we decided to adapt it and develop our own – imaginatively called the ‘LOOKOUT! Creed’. This is our promise to our team, partners and clients. So, without further ado…

We will support, assist, defend and maximise our clients’ businesses and whilst we will always work to agreed deadlines and criteria, we will also challenge our clients to ensure they get the best return on investment

We respect the laws and ethics surrounding recruitment, research and data that exist globally and regionally

We will proudly serve our clients with honour, courage, commitment and confidentiality

We are committed to excellence and the fair treatment of all
