Bateleur Eagles embody Vision, Focus, Balance and Agility.

The french word Bateleur means ''tightrope walker'' and was given to the African eagle which effectively navigates the strongest headwinds.



To help people and organisations with a social purpose work smarter to have more impact.




Our clients are boards, founders and senior leadership teams. We support them to lead and drive their organisations to the next stage of growth, professionalism and performance.



Our founding Directors, Kate and Stephen, bring decades of experience ''doing it themselves'' as CEOs, board members and project managers. 


Our approach is insightful, pragmatic and concise.

We listen, we engage, we recommend, we act, we learn. We don't write reports. We make things happen together with our clients.

Business Meeting



“Kate and Stephen were hugely involved in helping us to crystallize and operationalize our South African based family foundation initiative, NextUp. Their services spanned the entire spectrum. This included initial full day workshops using custom methodologies to ideate and challenge. They followed this up with global research and meetings with like-minded philanthropic initiatives.

Beyond the planning phase, Kate and Stephen helped us to manage our CEO recruitment initiative and took the lead role in interviewing multiple candidates. As our in-country team has taken shape, the Bateleur team has remained involved representing our family and advising our CEO. Beyond avoiding many potential pitfalls and delays, NextUp would most likely not exist without the experience, hard work and resourcefulness of the Bateleur team. Our family is extremely grateful to Kate and Stephen.”

David & Tracey Frankel, Founders, NextUp
