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.

"Bateleur Partners was central to guiding and implementing a new strategy and operating plan for KHULA. Kate and Stephen brought with them an intellectually driven yet practical framework, a clear understanding of the environment in which we operate and real directional advice.


In a short time, all the stakeholders involved agreed a new and ambitious vision along with the path to implementation. Bateleur Partners then stayed with us, recruiting our new CEO from their own superb network, and advising on a revised management structure for the organisation.


Positive change is already visible after only one year, and the successes in the field and in fundraising are profound."
