The business was founded by Roy Spencer who in a consulting career spanning forty years has worked at all levels of business from the shop floor to the boardroom. Having worked across the people, process, technology and strategic areas of consulting he is able to take a holistic view of the factors affecting business performance. His country experience includes the UK, Holland, Germany, Portugal, Russia, Uzbekistan, Nigeria, India, Saudi Arabia and the US. He has worked extensively in Russia, where he set up and ran one of the first general consulting practices in the post-perestroika period, working for both multi-nationals and new local companies. The Iskra business model leverages the competencies of the founder in its approach and calls upon an extensive network of associates to deliver the different aspects of the solution when required.
