Join Us


We are strategic problem solving consultants with expertise in conservation finance, sustainability, and carbon markets. There are only three scenarios under which you would consider engaging Gordian Knot Strategies:

1. You are facing a significant and intractable problem that is seemingly impossible to solve using traditional approaches and techniques. To solve it offers you a pivotable gateway. You need holistic thinking with pragmatic and executable solutions (GKS)

2. You are ignoring something you know to be vital. You don’t have the resources or bandwidth to address it. You need a credible third-party to deliver (GKS)

3. Your current or planned strategic focus is blurry causing resource stress, personnel burn out, and brand dilution. You need a crisp hedgehog that smartly marries your passion, activity, and business model to deliver a guiding strategic compass to you and your team (GKS).
