At 1st Mile we believe in thorough analysis but also

Implementation is all about people and interactions,

We believe that the winning companies of the future
are those able to build up energy and enthusiasm in
their organisation. We believe that talk is cheap, implemention
is key and cash is king.
And we walk the talk.
