What Our Clients Say

Clients Home

In summary I have to say this is best development work I have been involved in the last 20 years. I took a lot away from the sessions and I have kept everything to hand for future reviews and revision; that said most of what we discussed will stay with me on a day to day basis which is why this learning has been so powerful. Thank you and the team for all your hard work and support. Executive Coaching, Steve Ward, Finance Director, Aviation, Babcock International Group


"The consensus of the attendees I spoke to reinforced the critical importance of talent management to an organisation and also the increasing trend to utilise specialist support like Amanda's and our offering to support delivery." "Living in the Age of Uncertainty" Presentation, Althea Davies, Co founder of Davies HR Consultants


"The presentation flagged up some real challenges with we don't often think about - such as how the expected talent drain from the G7 to E7 countries will impact UK based businesses in the future. We really need plans in place to address this." "Living in the Age of Uncertainty" Presentation, Phil Herbert, VP Human Resources, Sharp Electronics (Europe) Ltd


"I was lucky enough to be introduced to Amanda in late 2012 when I was looking for someone to help me drive through a couple of 'sticky' developmental areas. Amanda's open and engaging style quickly enabled us to develop a strong sense of trust; in no time, her toolbox of skills had helped me quickly unpick the things I was wrestling with and get to an exceptional result. For those reading in, I ccan wholeheartedly rercommend Amanda to support you in your development aspirations. Challenging, but in a pragmatic and supportive way, she is a great partner in a coaching relationship and I would be happy to provide a more complete recommendation to anyone that wants it."  Executive Coaching, Simon Tattersfield, Head of Development, Volkeswagen Financial Services


"I found working with Kathy and Amanda from Zircon, a positive, professional and personally rewarding experience. The feedback and discussion sessions were particularly productive and I now have a greater understanding of my development needs. During the second session with Amanda, I took a few hints and tips away which I subsequently used in a meeting later in the week, and I was astounded by the transformation that had taken place in my confidence in this forum. I would not hesitate in recommending Zircon and would definately use their services again." Leadership Assessments. Paul McGill, Operations Manager, Travis Perkins


"Amanda, Chris and the tram have delivered a fantastic new recruitment & assessment programme for us. They quickly understood the brief, researched requirements and have consistently delivered at pace against very challenging time scales with great communication, planning and efficiency." Recruitment and Assessment Programme, Ruth Swales, HR Business Partner Direct, HSBC


“Zircon supported us with assessing and recruiting our Operations Directors. This was a massive appointment for us because it was the step we needed to take our business to the next level. They identified the behavioural competencies critical for success in our business and recognised the need to bring in an entrepreneur who is self reliant, self-managing and takes responsibility for delivering client success. Zircon gave me the confidence to make the selection decision, knowing that it was made on the basis of objective criteria. We have the confidence that we had thoroughly tested the candidates and got the right people." Executive Coacching, Tony McKenna, Managing Director, Caterlink


"Amanda and her team have consistently provided me with expert support, advice and consultation in the development and assessment of leadership talent within Iron Mountain. With great flexibility and a focus on results I would not hesitate to recommend Amanda as a business partner in this area”. Leadership Development Project, Emma Jeffries, VP Global Organisational Development


“Amanda and her colleagues have a detailed knowledge of psychometrics, and have supported our training and assessment activities over the past year. Zircon’s top qualities are their Expertise, Good Value & High Integrity”. Training and Assessment, Carol Driver
