Comments:

“Just a big ‘thank you’ to your organisation for helping run what was a milestone event for our planning team. Exploring in detail how each of us tick - and importantly what makes others tick - has not only enabled us break new ground in our relationships with the asset teams, but also helped us get on even more effectively with each other.

The feedback from both customers and stakeholders alike has been hugely encouraging and I’m extremely proud of the way our people are now able to conduct themselves, specifically in business, planning and decision making forums. On a personal note, ‘From Inspiration to Delivery’ has really helped me adapt my own approach to coaching the wide mix of leadership, colleagues and staff that we deal with on a daily basis. Wholly inspiring!”

“I first met Mel two years ago when she facilitated a significant programme of behavioural coaching with Shell just as I was going through a career change with the company. Mel’s professional, engaging and friendly manner delivered the coaching in a way which really connected with her audience. She took great care to involve us as individuals and to get us interacting as a team and it was one of those very rare occasions when the end of the course came too soon. It was a defining moment for me. I am very grateful to her for the part she played and has continued to play in helping me along from the first tentative steps on my new path.”

“One example of a business improvement was from a young technician who went back to work and as a direct result of what he had seen at the event was determined to solve a long standing issue. The confidence and support he had been given gave him the drive to pursue an improvement that will save the company millions of pounds in the coming years.”
