Trill Impact has partnered with Delivery Associates to accelerate their international growth journey. Delivery Associates is a global consulting firm that helps leaders in government, philanthropy, and social impact organizations to turn ambitious goals into everyday reality for the people they serve. Trill Impact’s growth partnership with Delivery Associates will accelerate and deepen their positive impact on people, planet, and society around the world.
Delivery Associates was founded by Sir Michael Barber in 2012. Their proprietary impact delivery framework is based on Sir Michael’s experience leading the Delivery Unit for the UK government under Tony Blair, with the aim of delivering measurable outcomes on the government’s top priority goals. Delivery Associates has since developed into a leading global social impact consultancy. Their mission has been the same since the beginning: deliver measurable impact on the targets and development goals of philanthropies, governments, NGOs, development finance institutions (DFIs) and other clients globally.
Through project work, Delivery Associates tackles some of the most pressing humanitarian challenges, related to topics such as education, food security and climate change. As a trusted partner, Delivery Associates has successfully helped their clients to reach targets such as 22% reduction of childhood anaemia in Peru, 91% primary school attendance in Pakistan and 74 million metric tons of GHG reductions in the US.
Delivery Associates has succeeded in creating a unique, mission-driven culture, relentlessly focusing on delivering real human impact. The firm has been able to attract and retain a diverse, globally distributed and highly qualified workforce of more than 200+ delivery enthusiasts from backgrounds that include government service, strategy consulting and social impact work.
“The partnership between Delivery Associates and Trill Impact represents an exciting next step in Delivery Associates’ development as we enter our second decade as an organisation. Trill Impact’s alignment with our mission, approach, and ultimate focus on delivering real and lasting impact makes them great partners for us as they completely share our values. We believe that Trill Impact will be able to support Delivery Associates’ ambition to grow and partner with more Governments and leaders around the world who want to improve how they deliver for their citizens and we are very motivated about the opportunities ahead together. In the meantime, we expect that the same high quality advice and service we are currently providing for our many different clients around the world will continue as we all seek to improve the lives of people across the world.” states Sir Michael Barber, Chairman and Founder of Delivery Associates.
Korbinian Knoblach, partner at Trill Impact Advisory, adds, "We are enthusiastic about partnering with the team at Delivery Associates as they share our passion for generating positive impact for people, society, and the planet in everything they do. We are deeply impressed with what Sir Michael Barber and his team have achieved over the last years and we are looking forward to supporting the team on the next leg of their journey to scale the organization and become a global leader in its field of business."
