THE GRAVITAS STORY

The who, the what, the why, and the how
GRAVITAS (/ɡravɪtas/)
one of the four sacred virtues during the Roman period, connoting a sense of depth, commitment, and impact.
OUR DNA
DEPTH. COMMITMENT. IMPACT.
During the Roman period, Gravitas was one of the four sacred virtues deemed by the ancients as essential to the character of a respected leader who is trusted by others.

Gravitas connotes a sense of depth, commitment, and impact – the essential characteristics of a competent consultant, and the unwavering values through which we serve our clients.

Gravitas is who – and what – we are.
THE WHY
OUR RAISON D’ÊTRE
Gravitas Consultants was initiated in 2016 by awarded management consultant and business psychologist Saleem Baradhy; bringing together only the finest independent practitioners under a unified professional community, and gravitating towards the common purpose of establishing ourselves as the reliable delivery arm of the regional consulting industry.

We have since organically grown into an international team spread across the Middle East and Europe, with diversity in seniority, expertise, and language. Our team is comprised of ethical, competent, and multilingual consultants, who are certified practitioners in their craft and recognized professionals in their field.

Our breadth of experience covers the complete value-chain of human capital consulting. Our depth of expertise is rooted in executive coaching, leadership development, capability assessment, and talent management. Our professional values are embedded within the Gravitas brand identity: depth in our work output, commitment to quality standards, and impact on business and people.
THE HOW
OUR UNIQUE MODEL
Gravitas Consultants is the do-tank of the Middle East consulting industry. We serve the consulting firm, not its end-client. We don’t bid for client work; we only deliver work through consulting firms. We are subcontractors you resource – not contractors you compete with. Our purpose is to partner with top-tier consulting firms in order to maximize the impact of their client engagements.

To maintain alignment with our consulting clients’ thought leadership and quality standards, we continuously invest in our team’s professional development, particularly in our consulting clients’ proprietary methodologies. As such, all our consultants are widely-credentialed, and highly-capable, subject matter experts.

Our shared passion lies in unlocking strategic value and creating business impact, through transforming organizational culture and developing leadership capability, within the entities we partner with and through the people we engage. To date, we have brought our passion to life through 50+ client engagements which we co-delivered in partnership with 10+ consulting firms.
