365 Sherpas is a political and strategic consultancy for companies and institutions, with branches in Berlin and Vienna. Our work begins far in advance of a public communication and focuses on the areas of corporate affairs and policy advice. As part of the Hirschen Group, we work closely with an experienced network of experts in several fields — campaigning, digital communications, dialogue, and creative art.
Leadership is growing more complex. Internal acceptance is becoming more important.
365 Sherpas is strategically prepared — from basic planning at the base camp to the ascent of the summit of business or political success, augmented reputation, and message penetration. The way to the top is often a long one, sometimes arduous, and almost always a roller coaster of emotions. It helps to travel the road, from the start to the very end, with companions who know the route, who adapt themselves to their client, and who lead that client to the goal, safely and well-prepared.
We advise you with enthusiasm, sensitivity, and a healthy dose of common sense. Without courage and passion, sustainable change and carving out new paths are almost impossible to achieve.
Strategic consulting is not a one-time affair, but an ongoing process, around the clock and every day of the year. In an age of real-time communications and changing patterns of media use, the presentation of content and persons is not only gaining in importance; it is the core of the public dialogue management of leading figures in business, politics and other fields.
365 Sherpas stands ready to support their clients from the very beginning with all their experience, passion, and ability. They can be engaged individually or together. Together with the Hirschen Group, we provide a team of competence, creativity, and fighting spirit — uncomplicated, nonconformist, and with enthusiasm for what we do.
The Sherpas are a people of the Himalayas who emigrated from Tibet to the central and southern Himalayan region around the year 1500. The name of this people is derived from Tibetan: “shar” means “east”, while “pa” means “People”.
Ever since British extreme sportsmen, explorers, and adventurers began hiring Sherpa men as Himalayan guides and bearers in the first half of the 20th century, the word “Sherpa” has often been used synonymously with “mountain expedition bearer”, often without knowledge of its original meaning. Sherpas impressed with their competence and performance — not only their physical strength, but also their spirit, demeanor, and courage. Within just a few years, they had earned themselves a sterling reputation among visitors to the highest mountains, and in particular Mount Everest.
Perhaps the most famous Sherpa is Tenzing Norgay (1914-1986), the partner of Sir Edmund Hillary in the latter’s expedition to Mount Everest in 1953, the first time man had set foot on its summit. Today, chief negotiators of a government are often referred to as “Sherpas” for the preparatory and guide work in which they engage.
" We're by your side - All the way to the top "
The consulting market is lacking focus on the strategic questions and the future for responsible lobbying and advocacy for business interests and dialogue-oriented communication in the political sphere. We are excited by political and communicative challenges. With our team of experienced and specialized generalists, we support our clients from the worlds of business and politics in critical situations.
Our basic idea, to advise decision-makers from business and government on communications planning from the very beginning, is not only required, but is decisive for the success and ongoing development of companies and institutions. The speed, intensity, and significance of communications processes is constantly increasing. Continuous strategic consulting on a basis of partnership and the development of uncomplicated, feasibility-oriented solutions are thus ever more important.
We are convinced that a capacity for dialogue is a key function for lasting success for decision-makers in politics and business. With our advisory services, we contribute to a better understanding and fair balancing of interests between affinity groups from the political and business spheres as well as the general public. This leads to better corporate and political decisions.
We believe that the dialogue between the business and political spheres and society as a whole is important to the functioning of our political system — and thus of our whole social system. The exchange of opinions, the understanding of different positions, the formulation and representation of interests, and the achieving of just compromises are at the core of this dialogue. We recognize our responsibility as advisors in this dialogue, and act accordingly. Transparency is the fundamental principle.
We believe that social developments and technical innovations present us with new challenges every day, just as they do decision-makers in the realms of business and politics. We are all a part of this development, and we understand corporate affairs and policy advice as accompanying a process. We know and manage these processes, and indicate paths and solutions. However, we know that we must constantly work on our own continuing development. Even though we contribute an outsider perspective, we consider ourselves part of your team, a partner and companion on the path to long-term success — all the way to the summit.
We believe that with our approach, we can help companies and political actors master their challenges. We know the decision-making structures, the processes, and the themes of the world of politics — but that’s not all. Fundamental to our self-image is our ability to unite our political expertise, knowledge with regards to the specific subject, and understanding of the company with our communications know-how. Only in this way can we strip away complexity, only in this way can we achieve the quality that sets us apart from our competitors. This is the only way in which we can accompany you on the difficult path to the summit. It’s what gets to the top that matters.
