TESTIMONIALS

“Lisa has worked with Pret a Manger over a number of years, supporting individuals who have left the company to further their careers elsewhere. She is extremely personable and has adapted her approach to suit each person and their needs. With Lisa supporting our employees, I am confident that we are providing them with full support at a time of change.

Lisa is also extremely engaging to work with. She is well networked and has provided some very useful HR counsel to myself over the years.”

Andrea Wareham – Head of Pret People, Pret a Manger

‘I recently engaged Lisa to provide career coaching support whilst I was experiencing a difficult time in a recent role. My values and that of my line manager were not aligned, but the organisation’s values and purpose were important to me. This provided me with a dilemma. Lisa was a huge support and sounding board for me to discuss how best to handle the situation, which gave me the courage to make the brave decision to resign the position.

The result was that the ‘fog’ was lifted from my thinking, a combination of loyalty and determination prevented me from seeing the bigger picture. I am
now in a new role, a position I secured within a few weeks of my leaving my previous company, and feel much more positive about my role, my career and
the values of the business and my line manager.

Lisa went above and beyond her remit to ensure that I managed this transition both professionally and personally. Thank you.’

I was recently placed in a new role by Lisa, a recruitment process she managed with an approach which was both extremely thorough and very professional. She has a very collegiate style and treats candidates with respect and humour but is no soft touch! For any future recruitment needs I might have, Lisa would be the first person to whom I would turn.

Lisa’s approach to HR consultancy and change management is straightforward and refreshing. Having worked with Lisa for the same client, I have seen how her approach to understanding the strategic requirements of the business delivers the best possible people solutions and transformational results.

Mark Todman, Director, Smart Financial

I have known Lisa for over 10 years, and have found her a pleasure to work with. She is straightforward and very honest and works hard to understand the real needs when looking to fill a role with a view to ongoing development. Lisa has a wealth of experience and many contacts.
“Does exactly what it says on the tin !” ….. and well.

Mark Davenport, Managing Director, Flextex Limited

Lisa worked with Unit Communications Group on a number of HR issues and in particular, a restructure of the business that required making 5 people redundant. Lisa’s professional and personable approach to the problem helped the Board enormously, to deal with this stressful and potentially dangerous process. I would recommend Lisa to any company that values the benefits of good: hiring, firing and inspiring.
