Stratcons is a boutique consultancy with offices in Sofia and Brussels. It provides tailor-made high added-value services to its clients. With a pool of 50+ experts with international experience in different fields and a network of partners with similar approach throughout Europe and the USA, Stratcons is well positioned to provide both local and international expertise.
Our particular strength is based on combined understanding of politics, processes, media attitudes, intercultural and technical aspects.
We have experience in a number of areas, including energy, environment, infrastructure, specialised marine services, port development, economics, FIDIC application, mediation and conflict resolution, political consultancy etc.
Stratcons goes beyond the conventional consultancy. It combines the concept of consultancy integrator with business diplomacy to provide its clients with options and solutions.
Although Stratcons has its own expertise in a wide range of subjects, we do not compete with the “classical” consultancies. Stratcons experts are knowledgeable and competent in multiple fields, so they can assess the sectorial expertise input from specialised companies, i.e. technical, financial, legal etc. and integrate it into the options and scenarios, which are worth considering in the framework of the client’s plans. In the development of the scenarios, political and other relevant contexts are taken into account. On the basis of these scenarios recommendations, strategies and implementation plans are prepared for the clients.
Contrary to the popular perception, diplomacy is not about being nice. Diplomacy is about increasing the options and achieving the goals. Various techniques are employed to this end, from tacit diplomacy to coercive diplomacy. This applies to everybody – from the state to the individual – as diplomacy is always key. Business diplomacy has two aspects: business-to-business and business-to-government relations. Stratcons has strong track record in both. Upon receiving a mandate, Stratcons engages in active relations with the relevant partners in order to achieve the best possible results for its clients.
In the modern world it is impossible to be a good politician without understanding economics and it is impossible to have a successful business without understanding politics.
Integrity, honesty, transparency, fairness, competence and sustainability are our core values. We are rigorous at addressing potential conflicts of interest which may arise by virtue of our relations with our clients. We are aware of the importance of keeping strict confidentiality about any information that we may become privy of in the course of implementation of our contracts. We will never use it, neither will allow it be used outside of the framework of our contractual relations.
Stratcons and its employees pay particular attention to implementation of the highest anti-corruption standards. We base our conduct on the provisions of the OECD Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions, the United Nations Convention Against Corruption and any other anti-bribery laws which may be applicable.
We value the business of our clients. Stratcons has developed a Code of Conduct, which ensures the fairness, honesty and transparency towards our clients. Our employees are obliged to speak out and protect the interests of our clients even if this goes against the immediate interest of Stratcons.
