Christoph Schedl

As founder and director, I oversee the company’s growth and am involved in most of our larger, strategic projects. I specifically enjoy working with our clients on strategic challenges and assessing exciting new targets, in the UK, Europe and further afield. Our company initially focused on advising B2B events players and investors in this space, but we have since successfully added new sectors and areas of expertise. I’m especially proud of our team’s strategic insights and analytics work.

I have always had a deep interest in media, economics and current affairs, which led me from studying Business Administration and writing my PhD thesis about strategy development in political parties to working for a media company and running a radio station. Later on, I discovered strategy consulting – with its inspirational clients and mentors, ever-evolving client challenges and constant deadlines. I worked as a Consultant at The Boston Consulting Group and later re-focused on the media industry when working for Ocean Strategy.

When not at work, you will probably find me outdoors with our whippet Jack, training for the next marathon, enjoying London’s cultural events or trying to play the piano.

Education: PhD, Vienna University of Economics and Business

What inspires me: Seeing people giving their very best – on stage, in sports, in business or any other profession
