Mobilising your brand to create a better world.

We exist to create a world based on shared value, improving the outcomes for individuals, communities, businesses and society.

As Barefoot Citizens Consulting, we create the opportunities together, equally, for everyone to participate in a world of possibilities. Competitive advantage in the modern global economy no longer exists in price, products and services alone. It exists by integrating a shared value strategy at the core of your business.
