How we deliver our service

Cognitive GRC works with a team of experts with whom we have cultivated relationships over the years. They are solutions waiting for the right challenges. They are typically a joy to work with on both a professional and personal level.

Our expert collaborators include individuals:
  • with who we have worked with before

  • who have been clients

  • who have worked with service partners

  • who have been service providers to our clients

How we work

Our experts tend to be in flexible working arrangements that allow them to participate in different projects. They are not attached to any particular firm or service structure and are often not employed in full time roles.

As our experts maintain their knowledge and expertise, we keep them close and where opportunities arise to utilise their experience, we can call on them to resource projects either on a stand-alone basis to address a resource need or as part of a combined project that is managed by a specially tailored team to address those challenges.
