Who we work with.
Our clients range from micro businesses to £multi-million organisations. We’ve got a special interest in education and in organisations that want to grow. We’ll help your people develop themselves to reach their personal and professional goals using our approach that is proven in a wide variety of industries. We’ve worked to make a difference through coaching in education, healthcare,social enterprises, Government Departments, and private companies.
We can help you.
Our prime aim is to bring a strong commercial and real-world focus to the much softer set of skills which make up leadership development. Experience of running organisations in a tough world means that not only can we take the rough with the smooth – but we can also show how this can be made manageable without sacrificing deeply held values. Although our Associates have formal education in business, coaching, mentoring and training, it is our practical know-how and real world experience that make the real connection between developing people and commercial success. Yes, we like KPIs, but we also like people.
