What do
people say?

While we had recognised the need ourselves to look at our values, vision and overall culture, we needed help to guide us along a journey. The team did a great job in that regard, so that we have come out of the experience with a unified sense of what we are doing, why, and with some clear guidelines about how to get where we want to go.

David Thomas, Head of Kantar TNS New Zealand

Based on the process used, the experience has helped widen the perspective of those around the table. By enabling them to engage with the wider business, they have been able to build trust that improved the level and quality of feedback from one session to the next as people realised they had a voice and were being listened to.

Gail McNamara, National Marketing Manager, FleetPartners

Thanks so much for inspiring and helping me to find a purpose that will guide me for the rest of my life in everything I do!

Jonathan Medd, Principal  Golder Associates, Victoria.

The work injected impetus and direction into what had previously been a fragmented group, aligning everybody to an inspiring vision and providing us with the understanding and tools to sustain the focus.

John Leuthart, Chairman Govett-Brewster Foundation.
