Who We Are
First and foremost, Newman Eventus are problem solvers. Our goal is to identify a problem and solve it, rather than merely propose solutions.
We specialise in the delivery of difficult or unusual projects which fall outside a company’s core area of business, and for which expertise and resources are not available internally.
We also provide hands-on assistance to organisations facing an unexpected, immediate problem or looking to resolve a persistent, long-term issue.
Newman Eventus are competent across a wide range of disparate yet overlapping areas which gives us a unique perspective and allows us to identify solutions which more specialised consultants would miss.
In the past we have been described as a Swiss Army knife: not the first choice in some cases, but highly versatile and exactly what you need in certain situations.
Over an 18-year career in the international energy and chemical industries, Timothy Newman learned that most organisations have a short-term requirement for a dynamic, goal-driven, self-reliant individual who can be assigned to a specific task without distracting from ongoing operations – and in many instances that was him.
Regardless of his job title and formal duties, Timothy’s employers consistently called upon him to tackle unusual or persistent problems. Whether it was fabricating and installing a bespoke piece of equipment, supervising rock-dumping works on an ice-breaking ship in the run-up to Christmas, inspecting a lighthouse on Sakhalin Island, or setting up a project office in a new country on a week’s notice, Timothy was hand-picked in the knowledge he would deliver regardless of circumstances.
Seeing he had a unique talent as a versatile, pragmatic, problem solver and drawing on his experience working in the United Kingdom, the Middle East, Russia, Nigeria, Australia, and France, Timothy founded Newman Eventus in 2018 to help small and medium-sized technical companies tackle short-term challenges and achieve better outcomes.
Our high-level strategy is to take the problems of company owners or senior decision-makers and turn the solutions into Newman Eventus objectives.
The first step is to understand the problem, how it impacts desirable business outcomes and – crucially – why it hasn’t been solved already. We then agree with the client the criteria for success, which gives us our objectives.
Liaising with the client and other stakeholders as required, Newman Eventus will take ownership of mapping out a clear, logical sequence of activities which will lead to a successful outcome. Once accepted by the Client, this forms the Statement of Works against which Newman Eventus will deliver.
With our goal-driven approach we:
- Take ownership, exercise judgement, and make bold decisions.
- Are highly pragmatic.
- Never lose sight of the ultimate business objectives, customers, and shareholders.
- Do not allow the business objectives to be obscured by, or become subordinate to, internal or political goals.
- Understand that processes, while important, must contribute towards achieving the business objectives.
- Identify and monitor what represents genuine progress.
