The Cahootts is a Cape Town-based alliance of associates and specialists from a diversity of business and industry backgrounds. We provide affordable business services to businesses and organisations, no matter how big or small they may be.

We are colleagues and friends with much that has kept us In Cahootts for the last 10 years. We are united by common beliefs, inspirations and passions – for ourselves, the world, our work and our customers.

Between us, we have a wealth of skills and experience to use in supporting businesses achieve what they cannot – due to lack of resources such as time and people. And we have a very different way of working from the typical “Business Consultancy” out there. We believe you’d find value, and pleasure, in working with us.

The philosophy of The Cahootts is to partner with businesses or organisations with the goal of achieving success. In partnering with our customers, we roll our sleeves up  and get our hands dirty.  We ask questions as we go, suggest practical alternatives and in the process become very familiar with the customers’ challenges.  We develop solutions, work with our customers to map the road forward and then facilitate implementing the changes.

Our job is only done when our customers are successful!
