Change is a fact of life. Some people love it, some people hate it, and in the world of business, transformative change can be hard to get right. And even harder to manage.

Enter Issoria. Founders Ibi Thomson and Matthew Chalk have found a novel way to manage change – a hybrid approach. Marrying change management consultancy with change management staffing expertise, this niche agency has filled a very big gap in the market.

Having begun with over 2,000 consultant members, Issoria has grown to over 5,000 members on a referral-only membership basis. The team strives to offer a bespoke approach for every client, providing a tailored methodology suited to the size of the business, as well as the sector in which it operates.

Issoria receives revenue from time and material, or deliverable- and milestone-based consultancy fees; however, a key differentiator in their revenue model is the rewards program, which supports clients who have limited budgets to develop.

Working with massive brands like Jaguar Land Rover and G4S, Issoria has fast become a leading voice in the space, with a truly global footprint. Despite working with household-names around the world, the company is determined to maintain its lean, startup model, helping it to evolve alongside its clients.

Having featured in position 58 in 2019 and 51 in 2018, Issoria this year climbs the Startups 100 list to take position 38. Issoria itself is definitely changing for the better.
