The Chaucer Story

Chaucer / The Chaucer Story

Chaucer has come a long way since we were co-founded over 30 years ago by Bob, Jenny and Chris Laslett. Whilst our client list and the industries we work with have grown, the values that underpin who we are and what drives us to excel in delivering for our clients has remained the same.

Established to meet demand for experienced, hands-on project management in large scale capital projects, we spent our first decade helping the World’s largest oil and gas, nuclear and construction companies deliver recognised projects such as The Channel Tunnel.

A phone call on Christmas Eve in 1987 started us on the journey to where we are today. A VP at a global Oil and Gas client called regarding the failure of a major business transformation programme. Our co-founder Bob Laslett stepped up to the plate and got the programme back on track.

We discovered that our experience and techniques developed in delivering capital infrastructure projects were equally applicable to helping clients meet the promise of business transformation to achieve strategic goals. Since then we’ve worked in every corner of the planet to help our clients achieve their success.

In 2014 we took another step in our journey with the management team leading an MBO, bringing external investment into the company (GCP) to help accelerate our growth.

From that initial base in the oil, nuclear and construction industries, our 200 consultants now deliver data informed transformation and change for many of the world’s largest companies across Energy, Life Sciences, Financial Services, Government and Technology, Media and Telecommunications.

Our capability is enhanced through our development of specialist tools that transform our clients success – from innovative tools that increase confidence in a high value drug development pipeline, to data driven change management and GDPR toolkits.

This intersect of data, innovative technology and our consulting capability is at the heart of what we do today – enabling us to help our clients transform to capitalise on their data and digital potential.
