But the birds are busy and the bulbs are pushing through the earth towards daylight...we're on the cusp of Spring...and there's a spring in our step too.
We're busy delivering a bespoke Management Development Programme for a team drawn from all disciplines across a business. It's a mix of workshops, on-the-job action learning, coaching and surgery sessions and the results are great. Our client is delighted and so are we!
We're also helping a new sales team engage, charm and enlist the services of gatekeepers in order to reach the decision makers they are searching for. Not always straight-forward, definitely not speed-dating (!) but our support and their great work is paying dividends.
And we're helping a new client develop a Key Account Management strategy that encompasses both their global markets and diverse products and service offerings. It's thought-provoking stuff and always a challenge to balance what's desirable versus practical. The thinking caps are on and the work has begun.

True2 developed a good manager into an exceptional people person with all round communication skills.
It is really hard to describe what Lynne does. Lynne would say she just asks questions - I would say she performs magic.
Director of Campus Services, Royal Holloway University
Why has it been successful? - Lynne is undoubtedly a skilled trainer who knows her profession, but there are many others who do as well - what makes her different is her ability to rapidly build relationships, her willingness to think outside of the box and the fact she is also a very insightful individual who challenges the status quo and will not let those that she is working with 'off the hook'. In my view the success of any training and leadership development is not the material, this is a given, it is the individual that delivers it, and this is the success story.
Jonathan Coles. HR Director, Philips
Lynne's ability to tailor learning to both the business objectives and the audience has ensured that our people leave with new frameworks, skills and a wider breadth of thinking; all of which can be applied immediately and have instant impact on our business.

I thought the session was really engaging - loved that it wasn't death-by-PowerPoint, and really enjoyed the interactive aspects. Really interesting topics covered that made me think so differently about the way I converse with customers; including aspects that I wasn't expecting from the session, but that actually made me think much more.
