What some past participants have said about our programmes

I would rate this as one of the best courses I have attended in the last 5 years  – The feedback and the atmosphere was excellent

Simon Bullers, Former Principal, Global Platform Manager Barclays Global Investors

I really learnt a lot. I would definitely recommend it

Olivia Ory, Corporate Staffing Specialist ST Electronics

I enjoyed the programme immensely.  It gave time away from the office to learn and practice new techniques without fear of ridicule.  We came away with a valuable toolbox to dip into in the future. An excellent investment of time and I will certainly recommend it to other colleagues

Richard Brookes, Chief Accountant, Syngenta Crop Protection

Very positive experience and excellent investment of time.  I can highly
recommend this interactive and practical programme.

Kathryn Westerveld, Vice President, Head of Training & Education

It was great – I learned a huge amount

Michael Slattery, Information Management Specialist, Roche Ireland

Excellent investment – I liked the inter-action and exercises. The toolkit will also be very helpful in the future work I have to do

Inez Rongen, HR, Heineken

Since the training there have been many situations that I’ve recognised from the programme’s real life case study.  In a very practical sense this training has boosted my confidence and skills in becoming a high value added internal advisor/partner. The great tools and models you learn can be applied in a variety of situations and are highly practical.  I still use the Aid Memoir tool kit on a regular basis.  I’ve fully recommended this programme to various colleagues within the bank and will continue to do so!

Nico Nanninga, ABN AMRO Bank N.V. – TB GCS Enterprise Services Business Manager

I found the programme highly useful as it replicates the reality of the corporate world. We also got to practice using a significant number of extremely powerful consulting tools. The programme’s case study and challenging role plays is highly effective and the whole experience opened my eyes (and ears) to what it takes to operate as a real business partner and internal consultant

Redefining the Business Role and Contribution of the Function

We have helped many core support functions – IT, Finance, HR and Internal Audit – fundamentally re-examine their service and product offerings. Set against continued internal cost and competitive pressures we have helped functions to review their “internal brand” and in turn enabled them to reshape their business offerings. The aim being to deliver a more proactive and value added role.

Supporting Strategic and Wider Organisation Change Initiatives

Our programmes can be designed to help put together teams of support specialists and managers who may need to work together to drive mission critical business initiatives such as:

Our bespoke approach is a powerful way to get any project team up and running with immediate impact. It equips individual team members with a common methodology and language to successfully drive change projects and implementation plans.
