Our Story

our vision

To be renowned as the home of courageous changemakers who boldly win hearts and minds with clarity, compassion and conviction.

our mission

We bravely challenge complacency, simplify complexity, and provoke action with the sole focus of creating agile and profitable operations for our clients.

So where did it all begin?

Let’s start at the very beginning…

“I’ve always had a drive and passion to run my own business; consulting bought me the opportunity to engage with and develop people who care.”

Mark Dudley, founder and Chairman

Coriolis was born in 1996 when Mark Dudley took the inspired action to create a home for exceptional “people people” who enjoy their work of influencing and developing.

Completely committed to building a sustainable boutique consultancy specialising in food and drink businesses, Mark proved his capability on the very first project; the UK largest fresh sausage factory! The business swiftly grew, attracting talented individuals of like minds and like hearts. Including Mark Schubert, who started working for Coriolis nine months after first meeting Mark Dudley.

So much more than an entertaining double-act (although the Marks are definitely that too) it’s the shared values and vision that have laid firm foundations for Coriolis’ success. And the depth of client relationships. It’s always personal and often goes beyond the workplace. Because people matter to everyone in the team as much as provoking change and making profits.

Don’t stop me now! I’m having such a good time, I’m having a ball…

Today, the business continues to simplify complexities with clarity, conviction, and courage. And make sustainable transformation a reality for each and every client.

“It’s important that we enjoy our work and it’s a pleasurable place to be.
After 20 years of doing this I can honestly say I wouldn’t do anything else.”

Mark Schubert, Managing Director

Long may Coriolis carry on honouring clients with a lasting legacy of performance improvement that puts people first.
