WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
"Hilary is outstanding in her field. I have worked with her for more than ten years in a range of capacities, during which time she has acted as a trusted advisor, and hands on leader for a number of large scale, complex change programmes. She has also been invaluable in supporting me to grow and develop my UK and global leadership teams.
What I really value in Hilary is her ability to quickly get to grips with the team, organisation or situation and to hold the mirror up and present back the issues and changes needed to move forward, in a compelling and engaging way. She has real insight, is always prepared to challenge, doing so effectively and sensitively, and has a great talent to be both creative and pragmatic to make sure you get to the right outcome.
I can't recommend her brand of change leadership highly enough"
Jack Sawyer, CEO International, APM
Hilary is exceptional in what she does. Immediately grasping the complex political landscape of the NHS and social care to bring three organisations into one; she led, developed and empowered a team to design and implement cultural and behavioural transformation. Hilary professionally provided senior level confirm and challenge to drive quality and sustainable change, which was pivotal in driving the cultural change programme forward. She deftly transferred her skills, knowledge and experience in to action which was invaluable both with stakeholders and for leading and developing a multi-disciplinary team.
A highly professional individual who I have enjoyed working with and would have no hesitation in recommending.
Becky Crowther, Associate Director Culture & Staff Engagement, Birmingham Community Healthcare NHSFT.
"Hilary came highly recommended as an expert in organisational and cultural change – and she exceeded expectations. She led an depth review of our organisational culture and values following a restructure, working first with the Leadership Team and then the wider organisation with the creation of our values in action working group which brought together a broad cross-section of the team. Hilary helped us to challenge our assumptions and ways of thinking about how we work and to empower the values in action group in shaping how we want to work as an organisation in the future. The result was the creation of new, authentic values that balance aspiration with practical action and lived experience and which all the team has been able to engage with and buy into. I’ve been particularly pleased to see how members of the group working with Hilary have grown in confidence with her support, input and gentle but firm challenge and this will stand us in very good stead for the future"

“Hilary has a powerful ability to tune in to what leaders need to grow. The leadership programmes she has developed and run for us have been hugely impactful and helped not only build alignment and connection within the groups and teams she works with, but also supported each individual leader to progress on their own journey. Hilary is skilled at getting the right balance of support and challenge to stretch leaders outside their comfort zone and help them see and connect with their potential. We have seen some real tangible change, and growth in the leaders Hilary has worked with and I would highly recommend her if you are looking to stretch your leaders and enable them to take their next steps on their leadership journey”.
