Our Ripples

International Personal Finance – Alison Leslie, Head of Organisational Development

Ali and I worked together at International Personal Finance over a period of 18 months during which the whole business was going through a period of global transformational change. Ali played a key part in supporting teams across Europe and Mexico to adopt best practice in their approach to transformational change, leadership development and training. She is not only an expert in her field, but an energising, caring, team player who quickly gains the respect of those that she works with. I love her positive outlook and dedication to making a difference. She always manages to bring an element of fun, creativity and professionalism to her work, infecting those around her with optimism.


Bird Board is a peer to peer coaching network of women business leaders growing rapidly throughout the North of England. And our strong ethics connect the women that want to join our tribe.

When I met Ali, I instantly felt a strong connection with her, as her positivity and fabulous people skills make you gravitate to her instantly.

Ali and Jamie make a great team. They have very different skills that complement each other beautifully. Both in coaching and development, but equally with their own unique and delightful style.

I asked Ali if she would train the women who we’d selected to facilitate our Boards because her positive ripples have effortlessly cascaded through Bird Board as we are growing. She sees the joy in everything and has an uncanny, sixth sense for spotting things that you might ordinarily have missed. For these reasons and many others, people naturally gravitate towards Ali and Jamie.

Ali is both highly skilled and has the awareness and communication skills to match. She is an emotionally savvy business woman who has great insight and ability to see people's strengths and help teams work together more effectively.

I would highly recommend you get in touch with her for any "people" needs and after a few minutes of talking to her, you'll know what I mean.

We have worked with Purple Pebble People for almost 2 years now, their work with us has made a significant difference to my business.  Ali has led two leadership away days for us, and also supported me and my leadership team at team away events, she has enabled us, coached us and driven us to reach new heights and deliver great results.  She has given me and the leadership team a new shared confidence and helped us to communicate our vision to the wider team, and also find ways to implement better ways of working.  Ali brings the right blend of fun, challenge, coaching and feedback and which we have found invaluable.  She has a calm and logical coaching style that has truly connected and inspired both me and my team. I can’t speak highly enough of Purple Pebble People.

There's something rather special about Jamie. He has a natural ability in getting the best from others. He is passionate about helping people to see their potential and make the most of their life and applies this to all his work whether he's facilitating leadership programs, working 121 coaching individuals from students and graduates to directors and business owners. I would say he's at his happiest when facilitating team adventures, using the great outdoors to inspire team and individuals learning which then helps them to show up differently at work and in life.

He brings insight, intuition, theory, mischief and practical organisation together to deliver impactful programs. I would not hesitate in hiring him if you're looking to make yourself, your team or your business even better than it is today.
Norfolk Wine School – Jeremy Dunn, Chief Wine Tutor

I wholeheartedly recommend Ali as a highly skilled Organisational Development professional, a leader in her field. Ali displays a unique ability to develop and then deliver a series of bespoke talent development programmes that empower individuals within the organisations to drive cultural and behavioural change.

As a result of Ali’s leadership development & support I have been able to significantly enhance both my own business performance and that of those working around me through employing a wide range of techniques in an appropriate manner.

Ali also happens to be one of the most fun, energetic & insightful individuals you could ever wish to work with. She has an infectious passion for what she does; inspiring confidence in everybody she works with.

Jamie was an absolute delight to work with! After a rough couple of years, I turned to Jamie for some personal coaching, giving me the confidence to get being just ME! He has a real way with people, understanding their needs and tailoring his coaching to suit them. The sessions are so relaxed and I truly felt over the 4 week sessions, I made a great friend. I would definitely recommend Jamie for all your personal coaching or team building needs!

Craig Tomlinson - Supersys IT Services
As a director of a growing business at SuperSys IT Services I am constantly looking at ways to innovate and streamline our existing business processes so we can provide the best and most efficient service possible. One area of the business however that had not previously considered however was our people development. 

After attending a one to one training course with Jamie from Purple Pebble People however my eyes were opened to the importance of our people development as the business continues to grow. Jamie was quick to understand our business model and to provide us with insight in to not only the ‘why’ people development is so important but also the ‘how’ to implement this. 

I would highly recommend Jamie and Purple Pebble People as with his guidance he has not only added value to our business he has also helped develop me as a person to take a different view point and approach to how situations are dealt with turning negatives in to positives.
