Blueprint 3.2 was born out of a moment of clarity and a renegade belief: that smart, talented and hardworking professionals can put a ‘dent in the universe’ by solving any business and career-pathing challenge that we set our sights on and apply our minds to.
We know that most professionals are very serious about their career development and success, but lack the time to pay it the attention it deserves – due to how busy they are being awesome in their day job!
Often, they only get around to investing in themselves and their ‘Brand-Me’ when it’s urgent (and a bit too late), like if they’re retrenched or at breaking point in their current role. Investing in yourself to ensure the security and opportunity that you deserve in your career is an ongoing and long-term commitment – it takes time, energy, and know-how. It’s an iterative process. A constant journey.
Luckily, that’s where we come in! We’re here to help you achieve your career goals and provide guidance, as well as doing lots of the ‘leg-work’ for you (so that you don’t have to).
We do this by ensuring that we keep a disciplined focus on the quality of everything that we do. We’re about delivering the best of both worlds to our clients and their employers in a way that is as real as it gets and brings little bit more sunshine to their professional lives and career success.
We believe in being able to add value to those we work with and we put in the hard work needed to do so. We live by these values when we’re applying our team’s smarts to solving any of our clients’ career development 99 problems as elegantly as possible.

As the great Jay-z once said: What more can I say? Well, quite a bit actually, like about what we specialize in and how we go about doing it. But for all this and more check out the rest of our website: ‘What We Do’ and ‘Portfolio’.
