Re-thinking engagement. New approaches to communications, leadership and trust.
Struggling to come to terms with the collapse in trust and the world as it is today. Feeling the pressure, as existing models of communications and leadership crumble, but not sure about how to change things for the better.
Defending your License to Operate.
(well, you never finish but…) a new approach to communications and leadership based on dynamic new principles. Insights into your world and a practical approach to action and accountability. Learnings from new voices and possibly some unexpected recommendations and decisions.
Establishing a License to Lead.
Trust in institutions and business is at an all-time low. Business models are being disrupted and sometimes broken. Activism is everywhere.
Even policy-makers occasionally struggle to understand what is really going on. Business’ License to Operate is under constant threat and many leaders are unsure how to react.
We help you move from defending your License to Operate to establishing a License to Lead. We recognise Activism, Vulnerability, Co-Production and Accountability as necessary working principles for a flourishing 21st century organisation. We put people first.
The Jericho Road is a process that takes clients and their teams on a four-stage programme –
This journey will enable organisations to come to terms with the context in which they operate and build more relevant and powerful stakeholder engagement, communications and leadership programmes.
Jericho Chambers will help you address the challenges of this “new normal” or the “post truth age” by working at the inter-section of business, politics and society – championing new thinking and building new coalitions.
Get in to the details
It requires you to get out of the office and connect with people, spend time in tough conversations, get out on the street and face your communities and truths.
The road starts with a deep analysis of what you know, what you’re missing by staying inside the echo chamber, a look around all competitors and corners and getting your mind moving differently (pre-work stage).
Then, over the course of two days, you will confront vulnerabilities, co-produce with your communities, understand your truths and what engagement is necessary (two-day interactive, multiple location ‘out of office’). Finally, we ensure you are set up with success on your own (on-going).
No-one can learn if they do not listen. Getting to the real truth is essential. Organisations need to listen and learn beyond the usual echo chambers.
Embracing vulnerability builds greater trustworthiness among co-workers, customers and stakeholders.
Strategies co-created with employees, customers and stakeholders deliver more successful outcomes, build resilience and reduce risk
Organisations can take an activist, leadership role that serves the common good. Actions - deeds not words - based on honesty and transparency.

Jericho Chambers is a group of highly experienced people united by shared principles and a common sense of purpose. Our areas of experience are deliberately diverse: communications and stakeholder engagement; organisational change and effectiveness; leadership; sustainable enterprise; political activism; trust; insights and opinion research; branding and design; writing, content and digital strategy. Many of us are published authors, public speakers and commentators with other highly relevant other lives. We have all worked for major consultancies, often at Founder, CEO or Chair level. We are part of Jericho because we want solutions that work for the common good, not just the individual or consultancy. This is the experience and expertise we share along the Jericho Road.
The Jericho model is based on extensive research and published works and evidenced via a series of live programmes for real clients on big societal issues – from responsible tax to the future of work and the built environment. We also know what doesn’t work – even though it is what many of the big consultancies are still selling – and are happy to explain why.
