We’re Changemakers.

Hired to bring about change by coaching, training and mentoring that makes a tangible difference to both organisational performance and individuals’ lives.

This homepage is designed to give you most of what you’d want, all in one place, to decide if we feel right for you or your organisation.  And if you’d like extra detail, then the wider site has more…


Are we right for you?

We’re a boutique; and though some projects are far-reaching with large populations, we don’t target these.  Our reputation has been built on being a catalyst for Return on Investment & Expectation (ROI/ROE) through transforming mindsets, KPIs and KBIs.

Therefore we choose who we work with very carefully on the basis that the timing and approach need to be right for everyone involved.

Our mantra from the outset has driven business growth and that is to “deliver to such a degree that every client will hire us again and recommend us.”  It has been said that Marketing is for the unremarkable – so we’ve avoided it and let our clients speak for themselves, it’s you we’re serving after all.

Holistic without the hippy

We don’t hang our hat on just one or two methodologies.  We use a deliberately eclectic mix.  All that we do is tailored to suit the needs of the business, team and individuals we are working with.  We draw on the arts, science, NLP, sport, neuroscience, accelerated learning, the big screen, comedy, mindfulness and beyond.

This way we tackle both the whole system and individuals, to bring about intentioned, accelerated changes in behaviours and mindsets – that then land the commercial results

It’s not just edgy facts and figures though.  Many of our biggest breakthrough results have come from increasing individuals’ personal resilience, well being and emotional agility – learn more in our blog

The Magic

This is the most exciting part of how we work.

It’s created when we really get to know the individuals we are working with and can utilise our full toolbox of skills and techniques to help them see things differently to truly understand their actions and consequences.

Once they have the ‘light bulb’ moment, we work with them through the layered learning approach to ensure the new mindsets and behaviours take hold. Once these become ‘the new norm’, our work is done – we build self-sufficiency.
