Great feedback

"I work with Darren because I trust him implicitly. Being a CEO can be a lonely place … He provided me the safe supportive environment to talk through things I couldn’t discuss within the organisation… His counsel has been invaluable and I would recommend him to anyone." CEO, Financial Sector

"In just a few sessions with my team, Darren has elevated us from 'firefighting', to galvanised around a unifying customer vision that delivers proper value for the business and our customers. He is one of the best facilitators I've worked with, digging deep to force us to face into root cause issues. Darren is a brilliant combination of 'masterful' and 'real'" Marketing and CRM Director, TMT

"The 360 o feedback work undertaken though direct interviews rather than the more traditional electronic survey gave a much richer basis for self-improvement and self-reflection. Again this was duplicated for my broader team with very positive outcomes for each individual and importantly, improved team performance. I would recommended the journey to all."President and CEO, Global Mining Industry

"Darren is imaginative, highly emotional intelligent and overall challenging in his approach that fits our culture to a tee. Feedback from teams has been exceptional and I would have no hesitation in recommending him if you are looking for someone who will take your business and your people to the next level in leadership, commerciality and authentic realisation” Talent Director, TMT
