Testimonials


'Howden Compressors Limited recently engaged Talent Focus Consulting to provide a six month Management Development Programme for six of its senior Managers. The Programme,   which included individual development, leadership modules and a business related team project, was very well received by all participants and their feedback indicated that the content had enabled improved line management techniques. Further feedback from their Line Managers has verified their improved effectiveness and ability to demonstrate clearer leadership and accountability. A second programme has now been launched with similar high expectations'. Mary-Frances Felletti, Human Resources Manager Howden Process Compressors / Howden Compressors Ltd.

The process used by Talent Focus Consulting was clear and simple and as well as conducting research into market benchmarking, the one to one personal interviews with the post holders helped Talent Focus Consulting gain a better understanding of the roles they were evaluating and the day to day accountabilities.  The final report was clear and concise and delivered within the timescales agreed.'
