  • "Working with Penny has been one of the best decisions I've made in business. Penny's consultative role as Head of Organisational Development has helped us deliver on a number of key projects around developing our culture, organisation and how our team works together. This has made our entire company more effective, efficient and focused - all game-changing stuff!"

    Adam Roberts - MD, Godine/Godinedigital Managing Director
  • "I would whole heartedly recommend Penny on so many levels. Penny was my Personal Executive Coach and helped me understand, define and gain my next step in my professional life. The sessions were always very positive ( Penny’s positivity and personality are very infectious), quite varied ( looking at all options from many different angles ), very informative ( helped me dig down to what is really important and interesting using different tools and methods ) and very insightful (the Lumina profile is a must and has already helped me gain my next step ! ). From the sessions and the Lumina profile my company (who sponsored the sessions) and I were able to see different options and together we created a new, challenging, exciting position that I accepted immediately. I completed the sessions with a new position and well prepared for future opportunities, thanks to Penny and her skills."

This week I'm talking to Paul Harrison. Paul is a Director at one of the big four professional services consultancies. He started his career with a degree in psychology but moved directly into the Inland Revenue as a Tax Inspector. He's spent the last couple of decades at the professional services consultancy within the Tax Directorate.

Barry started his career almost 30 years ago in the Military. As a child all he wanted do was fly planes in the RAF and worked hard to achieve his dream. After 15 years, he decided to move on into civilian employment. Although he'd built up a range of valuable skills, the journey to becoming the Chief of Staff and Strategy at one of Britain's leading government outsourced organisation is extraordinary. Barry is about to embark on another exciting transition as he moves into self-employment through a portfolio career - alongside achieving qualifications in mountaineering and Duke of Edinburgh mentoring.
