‘Enabling you to be the best that you can be’

“I have been on many leadership and management training sessions. The Leadership Programme covered recent and relevant material that was fascinating and I really enjoyed the programme. Thank you!”
“As a new leader in my business area, I found the Leadership Programme insightful, informative and beneficial. I have already taken steps to implement the learning and I feel more confident in my approach”

“Not only does Holly bring enthusiasm and positivity to a team, she provides a fully commercial approach, which consistently achieves results. She engages teams at all levels and actively seeks solutions to improve performance. I have always enjoyed working with Holly and found her to be supportive, personable and professional at all times”

Learning and Development Manager, Aston Martin

“The LEAP course delivered by Holly was both enjoyable and insightful. For me, it helps managers create a set of tools that genuinely help guide teams of people and their projects through tough times and unforeseen challenges that arise out of working remotely for long periods of time. I’d recommend to those looking to find new ways of thinking when you need that extra support and also help when the day to day contact we are so used to isn’t there.”

Head of Marketing, Global FMCG
“Holly developed a highly successful sales evaluation and development programme for the business, which continues to deliver accelerated revenue growth and a healthy ROI. Holly has a passion for sales and sales management, coupled with exceptional communication skills, as you would expect from such a strong trainer.”
Global HR Director, Reed

“I recently took part in the LEAP Virtual Development Programme. I found the content to be excellent and full of best practice in areas such as connect, communicate, resilience and engagement.

This was a virtual training course but the quality of the trainer and interactive approach allowed me to fully engage, not only with the subject matter but my peers as well.

Would definitely recommend it!”

Head of Supply Chain, Global FMCG
“When I asked Holly to provide some training for us, I knew her passion and dedication to the recruitment world would have a huge impact on my people. 2 years later, Holly feels like part of the team, she is frequently working with small groups, 121s and also handling on desk management observations. We have had direct results from the training she has delivered over the years and I can not recommend Holly enough – she is 100% focussed on her content and relevance and inspires my team to always want to deliver what they have learnt.”

“Thank you for a really interesting and valuable training programme.  I believe the entire programme was of benefit. Key areas include – Being part of a new group and the interaction, a well balanced programme which encouraged everyone to be engaged and take part. I would like my team to complete the LEAP programme.”

Head of Engineering, Global FMCG

“In the 15 years of working in recruitment, I can honestly say this training has added the most value for me and my team. We have delivered 5 successive Regional ‘Best Evers’ as a result of the changes we have embedded. So many of the team have delivered personal ‘Best Evers’ over the life of the programme and since – and overall my region is currently 38% ahead of last year on margin!”

Regional Manager , (Managing 6 offices across the UK)
“I have had the pleasure of attending training delivered by Holly and found her style to be thought provoking, challenging but above all very helpful. I worked with Holly when working on a project reviewing one of our assessment centres and the work Holly had designed and shared, has made a big difference to the way we evaluate. Without question, Holly is someone I would look to gain input from, as she always makes the time to give a considered opinion.”
