Six hundred years ago the Uros people lived on the shores of Lake Titikaka on the boarders of Peru and Bolivia. Their way of life was threatened by the growing Incan empire. Their solution to avoid conflict was to build floating islands and move their life on to the lake. Six hundred years later the Uros people continue to live sustainably floating on Lake Titikaka, the highest navigable lake in the world.
The ethos the Uros people live by and the dedication to find a solution for all is both inspiring and innovative. These types of skills are often required today as businesses face their own challenges. Uros Consulting is dedicated to supporting your business find new ways to overcome the hurdles that you face.
We can’t promise floating islands but we can guarantee to provide interesting and sustainable solutions delivered with integrity.
