Case studies

We have worked with Teams and Individuals all over the world. Here are some examples of the results we have generated:

 International Football Team

The Team were about to start preparing for the qualification stages of Euro 2016. The team faced a number of challenges, specifically the other teams in the group and their lack of success in the 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign.  Before we engaged with the players, it was clear to us that we were going to be one small, hopefully important, cog in the Manager's approach to the campaign. We quickly built rapport and respect with the Manager and the players leading to a series of three engagements that were designed to get the campaign off to the best possible start and to build momentum. 

We believe that our work with the players had a direct impact  in the result the team achieved in the first, away match of the campaign. Having gone one nil down, the team fought back to draw and then win the match. This win, set the scene for what has now become the longest unbeaten run by an international team from this country. 


Edinburgh based FTSE100 Sales Team

Before - 12 pitches undertaken with potential clients - no new business was won.

After - our Client won 10 pitches in a row - won new assets under management of £65,000,000 and annual premiums of circa £12,000,000.


Private Bank - Global Reach

Before - three elements to their business proposition. Share of wallet was very low. Lead flow per RM - 6.3 per annum.

After - three teams working together to present the business proposition to their clients. Lead flow increased to an average of 14.3 per RM.


Results and testimonials from our work in leadership development


 We worked with a team of 150 managers from a FTSE 100 bank on leadership development. The leadership skills learnt were implemented across a department of 1000 sales staff and the company saw an average increase of 22% per sales advisor.

 A private bank tasked us to deliver a two day course on leadership development and sales skills to a group of area directors who would subsequently train their individual teams of relationship managers. After one month, an individual team trained by their area director gained £8.3m of additional assets using our ideas and client engagement strategies.

 We have worked for a large US multi-national firm based in the Republic of Ireland. Having previously attended 6 training days with another company, the front-line management team spent one day with us developing their leadership skills. Six months later the company attributed all their success in implementing the leadership skills to that one day with our Team.



 I woke up on the Thursday morning with a very heavy heart and wondered why we were even bothering with the course at all, which is why I said to you immediately that I was in the wrong frame of mind and made my apologies before even starting as I thought it would not be beneficial....well how WRONG can one be.

 I was truly amazed at what you can make the mind do and how we can influence ourselves into believing in ourselves.  The amount I learnt with you on that day is invaluable and been inspirational in moving forward in difficult times.  I cannot begin to describe to you how I felt when I managed to split the piece of wood, which I have kept as a reminder of the day.
