The Myth Behind The NameCreating a company name is always challenging, trying to come up with something that is unique but has a meaning was very important to us. We explored lots of different options and it always came back to one theme which was providing good counsel, being Consultants means it's part of the job! With our love of mythology and stories we looked at various tales and came across the Greek Titan-Goddess, Metis.Metis was the Greek Titan-Goddess of wisdom, cunning, planning and good counsel. Metis was the counsellor of Zeus during the Titan wars and devised a cunning plan to trick Kronos into regurgitating his devoured children; Demeter, Hestia, Hera, Hades and Poseidon. Zeus later fearful of a prophecy which stated the children of Metis would overthrow him, tricked Metis and turned her into a fly and swallowed her whole! Metis with her cunning, bore a child within the belly of Zeus and crafted armour for the child. The forging of the armour gave Zeus unbearable headaches until he could take it no longer and with an axe split open his head and out came clad in the armour fashioned by Metis was Athena the goddess of war, handicraft and wisdom!The "sphere" part of Metisphere is to symbolise welcoming all those who engage with us into our circle of wisdom and council and to be included as equals. This was important for us to symbolise as going into projects and implementations can be daunting and we want our Customers to know that we are in this together as a team and all thoughts, council and wisdom can be shared without scrutiny and with open mindedness.
