Kerry and Katherine met in 1993 when working together running development programmes for graduates in a City-based company. We have each pursued our own careers as in-house learning and development specialists, shared our experiences and learnt from each other along the way developing a fantastic personal and professional relationship.
Although “two heads are better than one” might sound like a cliché for us it brings a richness and quality to our work that simply couldn't be achieved working independently. Whilst some of our clients may only be working directly with one of us, all our clients benefit from the collaborative approach we take ensuring we pool our 30+ years' experience of working in a variety of organisations, industries and sectors. We use this experience to question assumptions, explore new ideas and build relevant and practical solutions.
We have worked with some exceptional learning and development specialists, both internally and externally, and feel we have a real insider’s view of how to make the relationship with a consultancy flourish.
