Ethics and Values

  • ​New ideas aren't always good ideas.

    ​Belief #1

    ​Few problems are truly unique. And even fewer ideas are truly original. Before thinking "outside the box", we search for existing solutions that can be adapted locally. After all, clients bring us on to solve problems in the real world, and not just think of clever ideas.
  • ​Good ideas aren't always good solutions.

    ​Belief #2

    ​Ideas only become solutions if they can be taken out of the boardroom and brought into the real world. As such, Two Lakes produces and updates an implementation roadmap for each project and client. Clear expectations and KPIs are how we stay on-budget and on-time.
  • Debate is necessary and unavoidable

    ​Belief #3

    ​An idea with no potential pitfalls is always doomed to fail. Debate helps us identify what should be and then avoid getting stuck on what could be. We always value debate and firmly believe that true creativity can always survive the tension of multiple perspectives. 
  • ​You can't solve problems from home.

    ​Belief #4

    ​International projects can quickly become messy and complex. So it's normal for setbacks to occur. That's why Two Lakes works "in-country" to smooth over hiccups and directly facilitate cooperation. We're the boots on the ground that keep everyone else happy and motivated.


Respecting human and labour rights is integral to the Company’s mission to connect local ambitions with global opportunities.
