Sarah’s questions are incisive and pertinent: they took me to the heart of the issues I was grappling with and enabled me to see new possibilities and new ways of using existing skills, while making me more self-aware and confident.

Hi Sarah, Thanks for getting in touch – and of course, thank you for running such a great session! I’ve had some brilliant feedback so far. Everyone really enjoyed it and got a lot out of it, and we’re really keen to see how we can put all of our insights into practice in the workplace. So thank you.
Martijn Van Lom; General Manager at Kaspersky Lab Benelux and Nordics
Thanks Sarah that was a real good day. I’m still impressed at how open the team was.
Geoff Hewson; Chief Engineer at Vector Aerospace International Ltd
Having assumed the appointment as Director of one of Vector Aerospace Ltd helicopter Business Units I needed to swiftly create an ethos of teamwork and focus from the management team down to the shopfloor. This was achieved over a series of one day off-site sessions facilitated by Sarah. Not only did this allow me the opportunity to interact with managers to associates at all levels, but it allowed me to provide clarity and direction for the year ahead. The level of success was demonstrated by the Business unit exceeding all previous targets and setting new standards for others to follow.
Consequently I was then appointed as the Director of an additional helicopter business unit with the added aspect that there was potentially going to be the difficult task of a significant downturn in work due to the planned MoD platform out of service date. Again I used the services of Sarah to facilitate a series of one day off-site events. As a result this particular business has seen an increase in productivity as opposed to the expected drop off and improvements in quality across the piste.
Sarah provides targeted and focused facilitation to meet your business needs and I would recommend her support to any other business.
Agneta Kammeby; Chairman of Saab Seaeye Board

You managed to design and facilitate by far the best Away Day we have ever had. This is evident from the many positive and enthusiastic comments I have received from colleagues about the content of the event. You guided, supported and encouraged us to review, preview and dream in brilliant ways.
Thank you so much.
Shirley Raven; head of 5-19 years universal services at an NHS Trust
We took spoken evaluation at my team leader meeting. It was a fantastic evaluation: everyone had or planned to use it. Thank you Steve and Janet, really worthwhile as so practical. Some said the best 2 days training they had had for years
Marie Roach, London College of Fashion
Thank you so much for hosting our CFE Strategy Day, it was a really interesting and enjoyable day.
Stephane Veillat, European Space Agency HR department
Sarah worked with us to create an effective response to the results of our staff survey. Working with a small planning team, and then over 2 days with 200 people, she created a highly engaging and positive event that resulted in the generation of 18 practical ideas for future improvements. The event exceeded our expectations and generated much positive feedback. An enormous positive effect on area relationships was noticed immediately and there is a great deal of energy evident for pursuing the ideas and projects.
We are delighted by the work Sarah has done for us at a challenging time and have enjoyed working with her. We thoroughly recommend her as an experienced and skilful facilitator.
