Deri Hughes

Meet the expert

Deri is a consultant turned operator. He spent many years at top strategy consulting firm Bain & Company, and subsequently built his own practice supporting corporates & private equity to maximise value in deal environments.


More recently, he was CFOO of Credo Business Consulting where he built the operations team from scratch - learning many valuable lessons along the way! Following Credo's sale to Teneo in 2017, he left to set-up Honeycomb and help the leaders of boutique consulting firms build their operational capabilities, through operations planning, training courses, and outsourced operations services.


His approach to operations planning combines his strategic & operational expertise with a pragmatic realism that provides laser focus on the things that really matter.


"Deri's ability to distil the underlying philosophy of our core consulting business in a way that i'd never seen before really WOWed me"
