SHM is a strategy and insight consultancy based in central London. Since 1996, we have been putting insights into people’s motivations and mindsets at the heart of the world’s largest and most important organisations. We do this by unlocking a deep understanding of why people behave as they do – as leaders, as colleagues, as consumers, as citizens – and translating this into concrete directions to drive impact and results.

Our distinctive offering rests on recognising that understanding what people do (behaviour) is not the same as understanding why they do it (motivation).

Our clients don’t just want to understand what people have done in the past; they want to change what people do in the future.
