What people say

From design to delivery, it felt like Jo was immersed into the organisation and virtually part of the team . Whether I was explaining the immediate challenges in front of me for the short-term or the my L&D aspirations for the long-term leadership development plans for our organisation, for the first time I genuinely felt listened to by Jo. Too many development “experts” rely on off the shelf tools, but Jo wanted to get into the heart of our challenges, understand the key attributes of our future leaders and hone all of this into a measurable plan that would delivery us success and satisfaction – which we achieved!  It has been genuinely a great experience and I cannot tell you how glad I am to have been introduced to Jo … and only regret that it didn’t happen sooner!

Darren Dighton, Director of Human Resources (Omnicom Group PLC)

Jo has a long- term relationship with the company, partnering with us to design and deliver our senior management leadership programme, as well as providing executive coaching and senior team development.  Jo is pragmatic, and has the ability to challenge thinking, whilst quickly getting to the root of business challenges.  She has an engaging style and excellent commercial awareness

Rob Hudson , CEO (St Modwen Properties PLC)

Jo helped identify ways to put the learning into practice so that this wasn’t a tick box exercise, but it was real and enhancing for the individuals to show the value we placed in them, and also to the business as we were able to recognise the return of investment in our future leaders
