Testimonials

"Jamie worked with us to develop a team day that answered a pretty complicated brief. His ideas were creative and he really drilled down on what it was we were after to produce a really inspiring day."
Liz Paver Heart Radio
"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."

“I wholeheartedly recommend Ali as a highly skilled L&D professional, a leader in her field. During her time at Northern Foods Ali has displayed a unique ability to develop and then deliver a series of bespoke talent development programmes that have empowered individuals within the organisation to drive cultural and behavioural change. As a result of Ali’s training & 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.”

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”.

These included the organisation of company conferences / leadership events, functional teambuilding workshops, 1:1 coaching and mentoring and modular based leadership development programmes. The input that Ali has given to the management team in the Brands Division at Northern Foods has been a key driver of the businesses success.
