The training sessions with Jo are very well planned, engaging, enjoyable and above all thought-provoking and a great catalyst for team and self-reflection. I cannot recommend highly enough, they have been a massive help to both our board and management teams and to me personally.

I cannot recommend Jo highly enough. She is an incredibly talented and professional development expert. She has helped us facilitate our in-house management development programme and designed and developed our leadership programme for our Executive Team and senior leaders. Jo has been fantastic for Blue Cross, and we have been very lucky to have such a great fit with her style and delivery. Happy to endorse her work, if you want more information or to get in touch.
Rachel Briggs – Global People Director World Animal ProtectionLondon
HF Holidays have worked with Jo for a number of years now. She has brought out the best in our leaders, raising their awareness, skills and confidence, helping us transform business performance. The cultural change has been welcomed by our team, has led us to do great things for our guests and members, and deliver stronger financial performance. Could we have done without Jo? Maybe but I doubt it.
Jim Forward CEO HF Holidays- Elstree
Having a fairly new ‘Team’ we decided to invest some time and money into getting to know each other. Along came Jo and the ‘Insights’ profiling, insightful indeed. Jo’s enthusiasm for all things Red, Blue, Yellow and Green soon rubbed off on us and we haven’t looked back since. As a Team we have benefitted from identifying we have different colour preferences that depict how we like to work, and by highlighting our preferences to each other we are now able to get the best out of each other, increasing productivity and uplifting the atmosphere within the office.
Emma Cook- Finance Manager RB Medical Engineering Ltd, Ross-on-Wye
Over the last two years Jo has become a key training partner for us, helping design and deliver the training and development strategy for the business. Jo’s ability to understand our business model and build strong relationships with key members of the business is what sets her apart from other training providers. The courses provided are always bespoke to suit our business and full of energy to inspire our people. I couldn’t recommend Jo highly enough.

Joanne is without doubt one of the most inspirational people I have dealt with in business. She is extremely likeable and does her background work in detail on the business and the individuals she deals with. A very easy recommendation to write.
