About Us

CMO Vision Statement

Vision Statement

Our vision is to constantly improve forestry and natural resource competencies in Africa and beyond.

Brand difference

We apply the 3-pillar approach in all of the training, auditing and consulting work we offer, all encapsulated in our PerForm software package:

speqsPillar 1: We believe that performance in forestry operations should be measured in 5 areas, namely safety and health, productivity, environment, quality and social responsibility.


Pillar 2: We apply the PLAN/DO/CHECK/ACT management cycle to effectively and efficiently implement the 5 key performance areas


hirac Pillar 3: We believe that forest workers, supervisors and managers should focus on the areas posing a high risk to SPEQS and control such high risks (HIRAC Approach):

Except for applying the above model to all of our training, consulting and auditing services, we have embedded our management philosophy in our powerful forest management software “PerForm” that can be loaded on tablets, smartphones and desktop PCs.
