Essentially it helps them understand the purpose of the business and enables them to fulfil the overarching business strategy.

Do your people understand your brand, core values and value proposition? If not, how can they communicate this externally?

"Patrick started working with me and the senior management team three years ago at a time when the business was experiencing rapid growth"

“Patrick started working with me and the senior management team three years ago at a time when the business was experiencing rapid growth.

We needed to build a strategic plan to support our growth, illustrating what we needed to focus on to get there, rather than solely focusing on the financial targets. We also needed to further develop our senior management team to create succession plans, and underpin medium to long-term growth targets.

3 years into the relationship, Patrick has continued to support our business and is now working with the second generation of senior leaders identified through our succession planning strategy.”

“We have been working with Jenny Holmes of Lead Talent for the past 6 months, the transformation in all areas of our marketing has been outstanding.

She brings an expertise, professionalism and attention to detail that is second to none. Her approach was clear and no-nonsense, a rare thing in marketing in my experience.

A very clear focus on the outcomes needed and how that supports the delivery of the strategy of the organisation. She has introduced us to third-party suppliers that we have engaged on the strength of her recommendation which has also proved very successful. We look forward very much to continue with the next phase of work with her.”
