About Bow & Arrow

Bow & Arrow (B&A) are growth consultants who exist to solve one problem for their clients: “What new products or services do we develop and launch to deliver significant new revenue streams, fast?”

In recent years they have helped BMW Mini change their game from being a car manufacturer to a housing provider; Wall Street Journal from a daily newspaper to a data news and analytics service; and Google from a search engine to education powerhouse.

Based in London and led by Managing Director Laura Liram, the company is proud to have created a collaborative working environment in which everyone is listened to.

They created their core values, which are referred to every day, together as a team six years ago. These values that run throughout the business are: generous, driven, fearless, and better. They are present in the company’s day-to-day work, discussion and decision-making, but more formally in the interview process and biannual review, which asks the team to show how they have demonstrated the principles.


What is it like to work for Bow & Arrow

My Manager
My Manager
B&A give a lot of guidance and support to people as they become B&A Mentors. People usually start off mentoring interns, and they are given structured guidance and tools to help them coach their mentees in one-to-ones and six-monthly performance reviews.
Personal Growth
Personal Growth
B&A don’t have managers - they have mentors. B&A mentors are there to support the individual in putting their own growth plan and objectives into action and champion their development. Individuals book their coaching sessions, state what they need, gather their 360 feedback, and organise their reviews.
My Team

Last year, B&A invited the whole team to a half-day offsite all about ambition. Starting by taking some inspiration at the Picasso, 1932 exhibition, they then hired out a room in the Tate where they built a ‘wall of wonders’ of their ambitions - and turned them into personal commitments.
