Sandbox Consultancy Wins Global Award: Our Epic Journey to Global Recognition

We are thrilled to announce that Sandbox Consultancy Services Pvt Ltd has been honored with the prestigious 2024 Global Recognition Award for Performance Consulting. This accolade, featured in Business Insider, is a testament to our relentless pursuit of excellence and innovation. Our journey to this point has been nothing short of epic, filled with challenges, triumphs, and a steadfast commitment to redefining performance consulting.


The Genesis of a Visionary Idea

Sandbox began as the brainchild of award-winning television producer and educator Angelo De Silva. Angelo, who had already made a significant mark in the field of education and children's television in Sri Lanka, envisioned a company that could revolutionize adult professional learning. His vision was to combine his flair for larger-than-life productions with innovative learning methodologies to make adult learning more effective and results-driven. Thus, Sandbox was born in 2014, named to represent a safe space where professionals could fail fast, learn fast, and ultimately grow without impacting day-to-day business operations.

From the outset, Sandbox set itself apart through experiential learning, utilizing simulations of high-performing teams from the military, F1 Racing, and Michelin Star Kitchens. This approach created unforgettable experiences filled with myriad challenges and learning opportunities. Our unique selling proposition was clear: we moved beyond the often misunderstood concepts of "team building" and "outbound training" to educate a new audience on performance consulting and results-driven learning.

Overcoming Challenges and Shaping the Future

As with many visionary ideas, our concepts were initially ahead of their time. The ideas Sandbox championed—such as culture, performance, behavioral assessments, and data-driven decision-making—slowly began to influence the corporate zeitgeist. After establishing a reputation for pioneering experiential learning and setting records for the largest team experiences in the country, we shifted focus to performance consulting, seamlessly integrating experiential simulations with people-powered performance strategies.

The COVID-19 pandemic presented significant challenges. However, Sandbox had already pivoted towards performance consulting, enabling us to guide companies in adapting to new norms. The pandemic underscored the importance of culture as a competitive edge, and Sandbox's expertise became more relevant than ever.

Innovations and Unique Approaches

Angelo De Silva has always believed that Sri Lankan talent could compete on the global stage alongside the biggest consulting firms. With this conviction, he developed numerous original methodologies and frameworks that are now extensively used by our clients. His proprietary Goal Centric Teams™ Method redefined team dynamics, shifting from siloed KPI-driven teams to holistic, strategy-driven value chains. Other notable contributions include OAR™, a behavioral assessment center for future skills, and the acclaimed CSP™ (Culture Structure People) framework, which structures organizations around a winning culture unique to each client.

In today's global landscape, where smaller organizations and startups often outperform large corporations, culture has become the ultimate competitive advantage. Sandbox's innovative frameworks empower organizations to leverage this advantage, driving innovation and sustainable growth.

The Power of a High-Performing Team

At Sandbox, our team and culture are integral to our success. We practice what we preach, fostering a culture of continuous improvement and excellence. Our high-performance team is driven, motivated, and committed to delivering exceptional results. We value autonomy and believe in hiring the best talent, allowing them to excel in their roles. This approach has cultivated a premium team that consistently pushes the boundaries of what is possible.

Our reputation for being tough but fair is well-earned. We push our clients out of their comfort zones, challenging them to achieve their best. This approach has resulted in a 100% referral-based client base, a metric we are incredibly proud of. Our clients recognize and appreciate the value we bring, and our results speak for themselves.

Sandbox Consultancy Wins Global Award

Receiving the 2024 Global Recognition Award for Performance Consulting is a validation of our approach, our heart, and our culture. This recognition is particularly meaningful as it realizes Angelo De Silva's vision of putting Sri Lankan consulting on the global map with a fully original portfolio. Leveraging this award, we aim to combat biases and elevate the perception of local talent and entrepreneurship in Sri Lanka.

The Future Beckons

As we look to the future, we are excited about expanding into foreign markets, including Dubai and Southeast Asia. Several new projects are in the pipeline, and we are eager to continue our journey of innovation and excellence.

At Sandbox Consultancy Services Pvt Ltd, our journey has been driven by a passion for excellence, a commitment to innovation, and an unwavering belief in the potential of our team and clients. This global recognition is not just a milestone; it is a testament to our relentless pursuit of excellence and our promise to continue delivering transformative solutions. Together, we will shape the future of performance consulting and set new standards of success.
