Excellence, Courage and Empathy

“The stand out feature of Hedley May is the objectivity of your advice – a rare (and valuable) commodity nowadays. I was taken, too, by your description of your values: three simple words, powerful implications”


Our core values are at the heart of what we do. We measure our success by the degree to which we have lived our values and our stakeholders choose to work with us again.


  • The quality of our knowledge and the diligence we apply to solutions
  • The professionalism with which we deliver commercial, accurate and valuable advice
  • The dedicated, bespoke and confidential nature of our service


  • The tenacity and energy we commit to our clients’ interests and reputation
  • The versatility, innovation and imagination we employ to test “accepted wisdom”
  • The confidence to challenge in pursuit of the most positive long-term outcome


  • The honesty to communicate openly but with sensitivity and understanding
  • The care we take in building relationships with all with whom we interact
  • The commitment and loyalty to our client and the level of respect this entails

Purpose is not a process

“They knew the market, truly understood our needs and culture (which they learned quickly) and were a pleasure to work with”
