We took the name “ACROSS” from John Lennon’s “Across the Universe.”
This song has a phrase: “Nothing is gonna change my world.” In
today’s world, many things are constantly changing. However, there
are also some core values, which we believe should never change.
Our consulting services are based on those core values: integrity,
passion, and alacrity.
