WHAT DOES ALLUVION MEAN?
Alluvion is a term that describes a natural process by which new assets are created over time. Alluvion is commonly used to describe the creation of new land that comes into existence as sediment and silt gradually build up on the banks of a river.
Taking the analogy further, a river starts as a spring, a trickle and then gathers mass and momentum as it comes together with other tributaries. In its early phase a river can be easily diverted, as it doesn’t have power, and it can meander and slowly twist its way, taking the easy course. As the river matures, it gathers strength, where it becomes more direct and its power becomes almost unstoppable, cutting through rocks and mountains, creating gorges and canyons. It becomes an irreplaceable resource, that many rely on to make their livelihoods from, sustaining life and offering safe haven. It has a destination and a purpose and it shares its fortunes with others.

To enable everyone to achieve extraordinary things through business
To grow, guide, challenge and inspire, open-minded business leaders, and their teams, to be successful.
Acceptance and safety
We won’t judge you; we are on your team. We want to provide you with certainty and a place where you can be yourself without any worries about what we might think of you.
Tell it as it is
We have to face the facts. Sometimes we will be diplomatic and other times we will need to be somewhat brutal, but still in a respectful way. We are all accountable and reliant on each other. We will always strive to be fair and objective and approach people with an open heart.
If you can’t have a bit of fun and take yourself a little less serious from time to time, why bother? We want you to look forward to each and every time you engage with Alluvion and enjoy the experience.
Being of service
For us, it is all about you. We want to create value, deliver on our promises and work with you in a way that is rewarding. We believe having a service mentality will not only keep us focused on you, but heighten our professionalism and therefore improve the outcomes we achieve together.
How? How does that work? How can we get better at that? How do they do it? How can I master that? How do we improve? How long will that take? How do I be the best I can? I wonder whether that’s possible? What would it look like if ……?
We have to be true to ourselves first, be comfortable in our own skin, then we can be capable of doing what we both want and need. Being authentic is about being present, self-aware and conscious, actively listening and then thinking before acting.
Take a walk in someone else’s shoes
This is about gaining perspective and seeking to understand someone else’s point of view. Thinking through their motivations, pressures and behavioural traits. Through this learning, we can approach a subject with understanding, non-judgement and respect.
While we may not take a call unless it is urgent, or we may place others needs as a higher priority, when push comes to shove, family always comes first. We expect everyone to make time for their families and to understand that we aren’t completely defined by what we do for a living – we are all either fathers, mothers, wives, husbands, bothers, sisters and/or someone’s child and we need to take these roles seriously and be there consistently.
