We are all professionals, properly trained, educated, affiliated and engaged with our professional organisations – we’ve all been around a bit. Every associate has been recognised as being at the top of their tree: we don’t have ‘wannabe’s’, ‘me-too’s’, juniors or ‘journeymen’. We are a niche boutique consultancy. Pick any of our associates and you’ll be getting the best. It is our business model.
We regularly beat both global big consultancies and small niche boutiques both sides of the ponds – why? The clients say we pay the best attention to the brief, come up with the most creative solutions, throw passion and energy and commitment in right from the brief – and, they love working with us: we are a cute mixture of being fun, sharp and caring. “I feel honoured to have worked with you” said the HR Partner on our last 4 year Global Leadership Programme.
In the twenty years we’ve been in business, we tend to work with clients over several years. All four of our major Senior Leadership Development Programmes and Culture Change Programmes have won global top prizes and awards:
- Director Development of one of the Big Four accountancy firms
- Chairman’s award for Leadership Innovation of FTSE 100
- Chartered Institute of Personnel Development Training Award for the culture change in a FTSE 100
- Customer focus culture change programme for FTSE 100
Their experience showed. They laid out the pros and cons of our alternative options readily and were very ethical in helping us to decide the best course of action. They pushed us to excel ourselves and our work with them has been enormously beneficial to all of the individuals involved. It has had a measurable impact on our business.
James Entwisle, Finance Director, Gissings
They exceeded our very high expectations and gave us real value. Their creativity, intellectual challenge and dedication to excellence helped us create a transformational leadership capability within our business. Their delivery style is so extraordinary, their presence so professional and their ability to inspire is awesome.
