What Our Clients Say

Fiona was commissioned to design, facilitate and deliver a programme to address the need for transformation, change management & leadership development in a front line service. Hands on in her methods, thorough in her preparation and follow through; she always provided a personal touch and sensitive style at the same time as respecting professional boundaries. I would highly recommend her because of her experience and techniques as a skilled HR professional.

Events and Functions Manager, Wakefield Council

With Richard's help the team has acquired expertise in producing reports and presentations which are precisely tailored to the differing needs of every stakeholder group.

Business Improvement Manager, Newham Council

I have used Julia in respect of my own development from a Leadership Coaching perspective over the last 18 months. I have always found the sessions challenging yet rewarding as they allow me to reflect on my own conduct and actions, analyse and consider those actions and then discover for myself different solutions to achieve my goal of improvement. The coaching style that Julia uses helps me clarify situations which can become confused in a busy working day, so having the ability to reflect and clarify the reality helps put things into a proper perspective for me. Her approach is often challenging in 'holding the mirror up' to enable greater self-awareness whilst still being supportive.

Thoroughly recommended for anyone who has a genuine desire to improve or develop themselves further – but be prepared to put the work in yourself as Julia can't do that bit for you!
