— Agree­ment reached. Could you do bet­ter?

— Yes.

We are Consensus Building Agency, we specialize in development of the capability to reach agreements — the consensus building capability of a person, team or organization. We help parties to reach agreements and gain such value from them that no alternative solution could compete. We believe that consensus building capability of a person, team or organization is critical when it comes to overcoming contradictions and making beneficial deals, no matter who your vis-à-vis is and no matter what issues are on your list.

“The effect of cost optimization was estimated in tens of millions of dollars. I strongly recommend CBA to everyone striving to achieve maximum results”

Petr Ivantsov Head of legal support “VympelCom”

We focus on both sides of orga­ni­za­tional contour.

To be successful, you have to be able to build consensus with all kinds of counterparties (clients, suppliers, partners) as well as colleagues inside the company (members of your top-team, cross — functional or project team). We call this internal and external sides of organizational contour — and help to maximize your efficiency for both.

Our Clients


In 2016 we conducted a number of coaching sessions for the leader of negotiating team helping him to make a breakthrough in highly complicated negotiation, which was nearly blocked. As a result the deal became a reality, several months of unproductive work were saved, and the effect of cost optimization was estimated in tens of millions of dollars.


In 2010 — 2011 we implemented a development project for Sberbank key account managers. Their executives estimated that the total amount of additional deals the bank signed with corporate clients during 18 months after the program was about 52 billions of roubles.

In 2009 our assessment and development project led to an 8% increase in average margin of deals, a 15% increase in successful to unsuccessful tender ratio during the first month after the program — leading to a 30% increase three months later.

Our client list uncludes Yandex, Rosatom, Mars and other leading companies.
