We know that speed is the currency of a corporate. We help companies and leaders to accelerate the implementation of their goals and increasing their effectiveness.
Our projects range from supporting leadership changes, projects at risk or misaligned, mergers and acquisitions to repositioning – from individual functions to entire companies.
We are not a strategy, IT, marketing, or HR consultancy. We combine the individual components and link them in such a way that the horsepower gets on the road.
Creating the optimal combination of all these ‘set screws’ for the individual situation – that is our USP. We set them up for maximum output. Fast, professional and sustainable.
Distance and experience allow us to recognize the ‘set screws’ of an environment quickly. We know corporates and the dynamics of large organizations. We promptly identify solutions that take effect in such complex structures, because only results matter. That’s why we are here; that’s why we exist.

About the founder
René Esteban has worked many years in the corporate world. During that time, he observed many leaders and how they achieve their goals. Many goals were not achieved, just because of the leaders’ approach. René did not only observe these failures; he also made them. All too often, leaders do not meet goals in time, quality, nor budget. Naturally, this triggers frustration and leads to even more elbow tactics, corporate politics, or trying to be someone they are not.
So, he experimented with how corporate leaders can achieve their biggest goals faster and more human-friendly. Change management alone was not the answer. It did not take long for him to discover principles from neurosciences and success psychology that are transferrable into the corporate world. He combined these insights into an innovative approach that has helped many leaders to accelerate their transformations since.
René’s passion for goal achievement brought him to found FocusFirst, built on the fundamental belief that achieving goals together is faster, more favorable, and more enjoyable, and that inspiration and focus are keys to achieve epic goals. To share his insights with the world, he also wrote the book “Do Epic Stuff! – Leadership after Change Management”.
„Inspiring and focused. René Esteban showcases
that achieving epic business goals is possible.“
