Aleph is the personal advisory practice of writer, political theorist and researcher Ties Dams. 

It borrows its name from J.L. Borges' short story El Aleph, which tells of a point in space that contains all other points. Anyone who gazes into it can see everything in the universe from every angle simultaneously. 


Borges' metaphor is an idealized form of what Aleph delivers: it acts as a wide angle lens to public and private leaders. Its former clients include MoFa, MinEd. and various large cooperations. 


Aleph uses qualitative analysis, design thinking and open source intelligence to boil down what the global-political context means for policy today, tomorrow and the day after that. 


Aleph works exclusively on a project-basis, offering tailor-made services. It always starts with a conversation. If you're interested, please send an e-mail, or have a look at Ties' other work.
