I believed I was the finished article and well accomplished in people management

his insight, expertise, and experience provided a solid and strong process for us to move and gain that hard to achieve balance between keeping staff motivated through a re-organisation, changing skill sets and improving performance. I would definitely look to engage Tim again.

Director of Operations, Accountancy professional qualifications body

The team was very well established BUT ...

increasing market pressures lead to significantly more demands. We needed to understand team dynamics. Engaging and thought provoking the pace of the sessions devised by Tim was ideal. By the end of the day, we had plans and ideas on how to interact more effectively across the business and a new more relevant departmental structure.
