Our story began in 2001 when our founder, Fiona Houslip, combined a passion for coaching and cultural change, delivering quantifiable business impact, with a profound belief that it’s simply not enough to offer learning interventions without understanding how to create genuine behavioural change.
Now operating on a global scale, our rate of growth has been entirely driven by the hard work and energy of our team and the results we deliver for our customers.
Put simply, when you need to drive change, and improve performance, we can make it happen.
In line with our core beliefs, our experienced team is made up of individuals from diverse industry, educational, and functional backgrounds.
