Who we are
We have over fifteen years’ experience working with all kinds of organisations in personal and organisational development, operating in a diverse range of sectors including energy, financial services, professional services, media and not-for-profit.
We do what we do well and, because of this and the strong bond of trust we build with our clients, we have developed much of our business through referrals and repeat business.
You’ll get the best insight and consultation from skilled people who will listen, understand, challenge and then make change happen. We develop, coach, train, educate, facilitate, support and consult - all of which combines to help you achieve your personal and organisational objectives.
Our clients include many household names such as Axa, British Gas, Cancer Research UK, Intel, Channel 4, and Zurich, as well as a host of entrepreneurial companies that are achieving fast growth. We’ve made a measurable difference to each organisation by recognising and enhancing the potential of their leaders and managers and people.
It’s simple really…
We listen first and never assume to know the answer. We always share our knowledge; after all, what we do isn’t a black art. We always tell our clients the truth. We make work enjoyable and find fun when we can, and we have very high standards, which are focused on providing client centred approaches that make a real difference. As far as we are concerned, deliver the best, or don’t bother.
We improved managers’ coaching skills through a Coaching for Performance programme which was implemented across the organisation’s retail division (a department of 1,000 people).
We developed a sales programme to improve membership recruitment that resulted in sustained and substantial increases in strike rates (visitors to English Heritage sites being converted into members), with membership now accounting for more than £18 million as opposed to just over £12 million when Wescott Williams first started working with this client.
We helped manufacturing company Playdale select and recruit first class people for key positions in the company. Established in 1786, this family owned and run business, develops, manufactures and installs outdoor play equipment.
One to one coaching from Wescott Williams enabled one of Rugby League’s most talented coaches achieve his true potential.
We created a management development and succession programme for Acteon, one of the world’s leading subsea engineering specialists serving the offshore oil and gas industry.
We worked with long-standing business partner, Zurich to build a best-practice model and associated development programme to support staff and build business.
We coached Jo Hind, a talented AOL sales manager, to improve her performance at work, which led to renewed enthusiasm for her role, promotion and an enhanced career path. AOL is the world’s leading and best known interactive services provider.
Our ongoing development programme for medical professionals in India, Nepal, Tanzania, Egypt and Guatemala is helping dramatically increase the number of life-changing eye surgeries in some of the world’s poorest countries.
We developed a Membership Matters sales development and employee engagement programme which has helped RHS reverse a decline in membership recruitment.
