“Current best practice has not led to the changes in attitudes required in society to lead to long term, progressive change, within the business community. A new methodology is needed and being led by experienced leaders like Sejal and Deborah.” Roy O’Shaughnessy, Chief Exec, Capital City College Group
Deborah Skyers, Managing Partner said; “We work with organisations ready to reimagine or repurpose their offer, to define their strategy, identify new emergent trends and innovation to understand how technology can enable and also drive their business in this evolving and fast changing sector”
“Having worked in the employability sector for some time, we have learnt how important it is to guide, prepare and equip the organisation to adopt change including contract implementation, when this does not happen the impact on the organisation is huge”.
