FROM CONCEPT TO LAUNCH

Giselle-T Consultancy

Consultancy

The dedication towards consultancy, and with it, the foundations of Giselle-T Consultancy came into being while I was employed by a headhunting company.

Our customers were mainly looking for high-quality employees, but during our discussions, other challenges they were having had come up on several occasions.
I have always enjoyed unravelling both simple and more complicated systems. Finding the point where, using the least investment, one might reap the most rewards.

It became clear to me that I wanted to keep going down this route. 

As founder of the company, Török Ildikó Gizella gifted the company with the name Giselle-T, after her second name, and its primary consultancy portfolio is based on its leader’s experiences. Giselle-T Consultancy is a small company which, through its contracted partners, provides its customers with an extensive professional support background.

Why areas connected to medicine and sports, as well as their combinations?

I received my first degree at the Budapest University of Physical Education, and I worked, sometimes simultaneously, for 6 years in the sport sector as a coach, recreation manager, and then as a corporate outdoor training organiser.
Nevertheless, life steered me towards the areas of economics, and in the end I became an economist.

It might be surprising, but the modest anatomical and physiological knowledge I gained from my sports studies allowed me to understand projects in the medical sector better than an average economist.

I grew to like it; I stayed on, and continued developing myself in this field.

Starting out in the UK

I worked more than 10 years in Hungary, mainly as a consultant for SMEs, in various entrepreneurial fields involving medicine or medical businesses. As economic managers for a Hungarian business cluster in the field of medical devices, we guided 21, and then 27 companies towards international markets.

I started studying international economic law in the UK in 2015, where I graduated with a Master’s degree (LL.M) in 2018.

In addition, in 2016 I became the manager of the Hungarian Medical Association of the United Kingdom, which boasts an extended network of contacts, and, though the medical society operates as a non-profit, I have been increasingly sought in profit-oriented projects throughout my work.

Since this area is not quite suited to the profile of the medical society, we have come to the agreement that business ventures are to be handled by Giselle-T Consultancy.

Of these, one of the largest projects was a service provider active in lifestyle medicine who was trying to break into the UK market in a franchise system.

Giselle-T Consultancy

With the experience gained during cluster management and launching franchises, as well as by making use of the extensive network of contacts at the Hungarian Medical Association of the United Kingdom, the economic environment that would support businesses and is a point of pride for Giselle-T Consultancy was quick to develop, and is a solid foundation which ensures that we can confidently take on profit-oriented requests that fit our profile. 

Network of contacts:

Additionally, we of course offer consultancy for start-ups and new businesses, financial consultancy and consultancy in the areas of investment and business law, regardless of the industrial sector involved.

Our main areas of activity:

About the company

Currently, the Giselle-T Consultancy office is offering several consultancy services in the United Kingdom, Hungary, and, upon request, any, mainly English-speaking area in the world. 

It has been our experience that starting out in a foreign country is no small feat even if someone speaks the language perfectly. Habits, procedures and approaches are all different. As it happens, the UK also has a different legal system. Even being familiar with the location can be of great assistance, but we, of course, offer much more.

As a leader, based on economics and law studies, you will find a consolidated, open-minded and cooperative team here. Giselle-T Consultancy is not a one-person problem fixer. It is surrounded by a system of contacts composed of a network of experts with whom its consultants, they themselves having a broad range of experience, work in tight cooperation. 

How we operate

Our first consultation is free.

If you decide to work with us, our consultant will work with you to understand your current situation, your goals, and the challenges you face.
In simple counselling, we may only meet once or twice, but in general, we usually work together for about a year, a timeline which can be modified as needed, for example, until the project is completed or the goals are met

The consultant’s job is to consult and give advice!
No more, no less.
The consultant also makes personalized recommendations, that fit what you want to achieve.
Consultants are experts in the field in which they work. However, if your issue requires even more specialized expertise, our consultant – with the assistance of our professional network – will work together with specialists in your field to provide you with the most professional-level support.
