About Us

“Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.”

William Jennings Bryan, 1860-1925

Formicio was founded in 2010 by a group of highly experienced consultants and executives who want to help organisations improve their futures. We chose the name Formicio from two Latin words, FORMO (to form or shape) and PROFICIO (to advance, make progress, benefit, contribute) as we thought this aptly describes the value that we aim to bring to our clients.

Our approach is predicated on the view that all organisations have a default future – as do individuals, communities and countries. It’s the place they will end up if no action is taken, other than that currently planned. Through our collaborative consulting style we help leaders better understand the default future of their organisation, and support them in developing and operationalising new strategies that take them on a different trajectory towards an improved future.

Our experience covers a range of industries from financial services to pharmaceuticals. Our most recent work has focused on digital business strategy and IT organisational transformation.

We are based in Piccadilly central London, with consultants in the UK, Switzerland and the USA.

Our clients are corporations and public bodies around the world.

  • We provide thought leadership and thought partnership on all aspects of assessing, developing and operationalising strategy. The following are some examples of specific capabilities and experience.
