Happy Customers

"Julia was on hand to support me in a situation that arose out of normal hours and did not hesitate to give me all the advice and tools I needed to manage the situation appropriately. I was so pleased with her handling of this situation I have decided that I need Julia and her support on a more regular basis and I look forward to working with her in the future."

Clare B, CEO

"Julia and her team have helped shape and deliver our HR and OD strategy, ensuring that the business adapts to a more modern approach to people management, change and organisational development.

Leading a shared service, this is not always an easy task as organisations pull in different directions, but Julia's commitment to ensuring the business can effectively deliver its goals and operational model aspirations have always been 100%. Julia has a particular skill at providing critical challenge and thought to senior management - executive, CEO/COO levels - which is not an easy role to play, although one Julia is very successful at."

Peter D, Director

"Julia has recently offered her personalised and professional support during a complicated HR situation. Not only was her advice pragmatic and supportive it was also incredibly strategic.
From a position of uncertainty Julia was able to deliver the outcome I wanted in a relatively short space of time. I would have no hesitation in suggesting Julia for anyone's HR needs.
She's a class act."

Gavin R, Business Owner
