As Stephen explains:

"Gravity Works are thrilled to become part of the Adaptavist Group at this very exciting time. Together we will be able to get even closer to customer challenges, helping to instil the right mindset and processes to drive meaningful, lasting change in organisations across the globe."

We will be able to offer scalable solutions that grow alongside their business."
