Unless we change mindsets, we cannot change the way we do business.
And let’s face it business as usual isn’t an option anymore.
The world we live in is rapidly changing.
We need to care more about people and the finite resources we have at our disposal.
We are a diverse collective of modern-day Business Sherpas, aka business guides and mentors, fully equipped for today’s business world.
Jane and Barry's Story
In 2017, Jane Birkin began her own business adventure. After 20+ years at the sharp end of big corporations with a desire to do business differently and avoid the people and resource waste associated with modern day corporate business.
In 2019, Jane met Creative Director Barry Brand, who like Jane had witnessed a huge amount of waste in the creative industry – time spent on things that no longer mattered, people demotivated, clients and agency relationships that break down.
With a desire to do things differently Jane and Barry decided to work tougher, combining 40+ years of experience and expertise in the commercial and creative world and passion for being a positive force for change and a vision of a world where business success is measured by more than just profit.

We lead with our Yellow Sherpa values:
Kindness, Courage, Curiosity and Adventure
We dare to care for a future where business is done in a better, kinder way cutting through the corporate silos and hierarchy that often stifle organisations.
We lead with our Yellow Sherpa values:
We give back more than we take
Kindness is to apply a lens of love, compassion, generosity and service to the use of your own time, talent and resources in order to better your own life and the lives of others (without expecting something in return). We think we could do with a bit more of that in the business world, and every project we take on seeks to educate and transform company culture in a way that creates more corporate kindness.
We lead from the heart.
Courage comes from the French word for heart. And it takes heart to go against the status quo, to push for a world where business is done in a more caring and compassionate way. At Yellow we have the guts to dare to think differently, to challenge business-as-usual, and the ability to roll up our sleeves, get down in the mud with you and help make it happen.
We lead with good spirit.
The one thing that is constant in this world is change and we know that, for a business, change can be scary. We don't see it like that. We see this type of transformation as bold, exciting and agile and a way of embracing the future. Adapting to where business needs to go if we want to serve the generations to come.
We are open to new ways.
At Yellow we are tenacious about discovering how we can help companies care more. We do that by being constantly open and curious to how business is transforming; different cultures, different mindsets and different goals. In order to create that change, we turn over every rock in our own rockpool, before we shine a light on yours
We dare to care for a future where business is done in a better way. Do you?
