Our story: how it all started

Like many startups the HiveMind Network was borne out of a dissatisfaction with the status quo! Our founder, Lyndon Docherty who’d spent a good proportion of his career woking in technology advisory services, decided over a beer with a couple of friends that there had to be a better way.

“What if we could build an expert network made up of the best people you’ve ever worked with, people that you wouldn’t hesitate to put in front of your best client?

It’s all about trust

Most of us remember the best people we’ve worked with for their knowledge, passion, ability and like-ability. We bring such people together first and foremost for their values to create a community of experts who are at the top of their game, giving members a delivery spectrum from analysis and research right through to consulting, contracting and interim work, enabling us to support clients from concept to operation.

We then take this broad and deep network and bind it together through adaptive structures, processes and information to provide world-leading services. We leave out the overheads, fancy offices, the fixed cost base of 1000s of consultants, so that we can offer these services at a fraction of the traditional costs.

Who do we invite then?

Because of the backgrounds of the founding members we started by inviting those people we knew, trusted, rated and liked first. This meant they came from a variety of different backgrounds; management consultancies, technology firms, marketing organisations, legal firms, learning and education, etc. Which felt and still feels right. Modern business is complex and solving business challenges can require a whole raft of different skills and experiences. If the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem’s a nail?

What does the future hold?

As more businesses recognise the benefits of accessing expertise in a flexible, scalable and secure fashion our vision is to build a global commuity of outstanding people with the passion and ability to make the world of a work better.

We still consider ourself to be at the start of our journey. We’d love to hear from people who’d like to join us in continuing the growth of a value based network.
