Here’s what our clients say …

From corporate clients:

“A highly experienced HR leader with a strong background in successful transformation projects and change management. The integration of a business we acquired was a success and it is clear we are now one company – Amanda was a key influence in this. Furthermore, the Diversity & Inclusion agenda was raised by Amanda and she set up a framework for this which is still used today.”

Regional CEO, leading global technology business

“Amanda led a major HR programme for us across EMEA to ensure we adapted to the impact of COVID19, reduced costs and implemented our target operating model in response to changing client needs. She’s commercial and pragmatic, strategic yet has a hands-on approach. The HR team has benefited from Amanda’s coaching and guidance and I’ve really enjoyed working with her.”

Chief People Officer, global marketing communications agency

“Amanda brings an energy to HR activities, while being task and results focused. Very dynamic, a nice mix of visionary but also happy to get her hands dirty. Amanda has energy when called into action and wants to get things going. She brought knowledge from outside the sector with a focus on talent, recruitment and development, succession planning and talent management. Her technical and legal knowledge of HR is excellent. Amanda is very good on the cultural elements of our region (19 countries), and is proactive and positive in engaging people.”

CEO EMEA, aviation sector

From HR consulting clients:

“Amanda gave us succinct, practical advice on how to manage some tricky people issues. She drafted the documents we needed, briefed managers on how to conduct the meetings, and advised on the risks and likely costs involved in the steps we wanted to take. Amanda is pragmatic and down to earth, and quickly understood our business.”

Chief Operating Officer, international search firm

“Amanda looks at matters from both the employer’s and employee’s perspective for the good of the business, and has been key in influencing our culture. She’s my trusted go-to person – rock solid and no drama, and at the top of her game. Amanda is a really powerful leader, she is very credible at Board level, sets high goals, is an expert in transformation and is a team player. She’s ideal for a growing organisation.”

CEO, charity sector

From employees:

“My employer was refusing my multiple requests for flexible working and even made inappropriate comments about me seeking external advice.  After discussions with Amanda, she drafted a letter for me to send to my manager and HR explaining how they were breaching government guidelines and indeed their own internal procedures.  The letter also pointed out that I am entirely within my rights to seek external advice.  My employer capitulated and I now have the hours I requested… Many thanks, Amanda!”

Hannah, Registered General Nurse

“Amanda helped me navigate through a difficult work issue that was giving me sleepless nights and a lot of stress.  Her advice was clear and practical; she explained all the options and the risks associated with each one, and helped me achieve the outcome I wanted.  I can’t recommend Amanda highly enough for her calm, considered and straightforward approach – it was just what I wanted and I was pleased she was in my corner.”

Joe, Software Developer

As a leader:

“I had the pleasure of working with Amanda while I was a Shared Services Director within the aviation industry. Amanda brought so much enthusiasm and drive to the team with constructive ways to change behaviours and culture for a better business and environment. Amanda not only took complete ownership of her team and their wellbeing but also ensured the business was well protected and that people development was high on the agenda. I can confidently say Amanda would be an asset to any business in any position she felt would be able to use her exceptional skills.”

Shared Services Director, aviation sector

“Amanda is a consummate professional and not only a joy to work with but a true expert in her field. She is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of employment law and HR best practice from the hard employee relations side to the ‘softer’ but still critical wellbeing and engagement. Particularly she has been invaluable in leading through a tricky restructure within EMEA and been a key member of the senior leadership team. I wish we could keep her!”
