DVC Consultants is a strategic and critical issue advisory firm based in the UK. Our core mission is to help our clients in dealing with disruption and what the-then US Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld once famously described as ‘unknown unknowns’.

In the light of Covid-19, most consulting firms stress how well-placed they are to support clients through disruption, few have the credentials to back up these claims. DVC, however, is different, and has a track record stretching back nearly 30 years working with clients operating in highly challenging situations. The team have more than 100 years’ experience in dealing with ‘unknown unknowns’, for example:

• Supporting democratic groups in the Soviet Union and its successor states through the coup of 1991, and its aftermath

• Working with South Africa’s Government of National Unity on economic and private sector policy

• Worked with a leading FMCG company on the impacts of politics and mafia behaviours on their business in the southern Balkans

• Supported travel companies responding to terror attacks and disasters like Costa Concordia

• Worked with leading international intergovernmental organisation on addressing Boko Haram in northern Nigeria
