What Our Clients Say About Working With Us
“Gwen is a commercially strategic and astute leader, who has been an invaluable partner to us in creating a high performance culture. Her ability to grasp the cultural DNA of our organisation and executive leadership team has been instrumental and on point.
Gwen’s professional and pragmatic style is exactly what our entrepreneurial organisation needed. As OD partners Gwen and her team have the ability to deliver critical thinking that is culturally aligned across a range of opportunities and challenges.”
“You are very approachable and responsive, someone I can engage with on many levels as a ‘get it’ very quickly, especially given the complexity of the world I’m working in. You have energy and boldness in your facilitation, and you can really hold a room and challenge in a supportive way.”
“I have really valued your practical style. Your honesty and holistic approach have been helpful in giving me space to explore some difficult situations. I’m using my skills and qualities in a way I wouldn’t have thought about before – that’s empowering, and has resulted in me changing the way I’m leading this project.”
“The innovative approaches you shared in the Change Agent Workshops were brilliant and have been a real help with implementing the new business operating model. Having time in small teams to share some of the challenges we faced during the last 12 months kept me sane and I learned a great deal from my colleagues. Thank you!”
“You have a building and affirming style which is also both challenging and supportive. Your observations were fast and nerve wrenchingly to the bone and you opened up lots of avenues for us to discuss, in particular the final session helped us to summarise and focus our time. The way you work allowed us to make sense in our own way and was very profound. Working with you as a consultant was wildly beyond my expectations.”
“The transformation team workshops you’ve run with our senior leaders have proved invaluable in helping us understand our role as leaders of change. You’ve given us new skills to lead differently with our own teams; to work more collaboratively internally; and to build stronger relationships with our partners and clients. Your sessions are very practical and we love the energy you bring to our checkpoint sessions.”
“We couldn’t have achieved what we did at our Board meeting today without the work you’ve done with us over the last 6 months. We’re all better equipped individually and collectively to lead our organisation through the next stage of transformation. We know we will need to make tough decisions but feel we can explore difficult conversations and decisions in a more effective way now.”
“Gwen is a talented facilitator with a great style which engages participants and ensures that the events where she is involved are among the most valued in Hitachi’s development calendar. She has a very business-focused approach and always positions our development programmes in a broader strategic context and adds real value.”
“Gwen’s greatest contribution to her work is her humanity. She has remarkable intelligence and integrates that skill and knowledge to great benefit for all those around her. As a colleague she is unwavering in her support of me. She has the capacity to be both visionary and strategic — by no means an easy task. She manages this with grace, dexterity, agility and above all with a great sense of humour. She inspires those around her to move way beyond the boundaries of the possible. Fabulous!
“I was lucky enough to be introduced to Gwen when looking to further develop my OD career and practice. As a mentor, Gwen brings a breadth of knowledge and wisdom gained from an impressive career portfolio, yet she shares her learning with great warmth, candour and humility. Time spent with Gwen is thought-provoking, energising and always fun!”
