Keel Strategic know all about project delivery in difficult locations. Through our knowledge and experience we have been able to develop Cohesion, a product that provides quality human resource support to the natural resource and energy markets.

Its modular design can competitively deliver everything from single subject matter expert placements to ‘turn key’ human resource solutions in support of projects anywhere around the globe.

Cohesion is about unity of effort. The success or failure of a project is dependent upon it’s team. From project management to locally employed staff, the cohesion of a team is vital.  It’s in our DNA and our company has been built through cohesion.
