I feel very fortunate to have worked with Claudie; she is an absolute expert within her field. She understands the challenges of Agency life, both from a business and a personnel perspective. She is quick to appraise the work environment and culture, and very insightful when it comes to understanding the core strengths and values of individuals, and how these can be brought together for optimum team performance. Empathetic, diligent and insightful - she is an absolute joy to work with. I highly recommend her.

Claudie has facilitated a number of development sessions with my team and in all cases those sessions were very successful. She brings a lot of positive energy to the activity and she is very professional and flexible in her delivery.

Openness Consulting ran a training exercise for us at the beginning of 2013 which was absolutely superb. I was delighted with how everyone in the team immediately bought into Claudie and her workshop. The feedback afterwards from each of them was uniformly positive and there have been lasting results in terms of team morale.

She is knowledgeable, personable and professional. Every session has given me clear hints and tips to guide my thinking, support me to develop my team. Ultimately leaving me with a new set of skills that I am using to take my work to greater and greater success. 

I have no hesitation in recommending Claudie. She is brilliant!

OC facilitated a workshop with my team helping us to develop our vision and values. Not only was the day itself inspiring, enjoyable and extremely productive for everyone there, but the preparation and support before the event was excellent and the resources she produced were invaluable. Throughout the whole process, Claudie worked with me to understand what I wanted to achieve and so created a tailor-made day which enabled us to develop our five year strategy from a solid basis with shared values. I can whole-heartedly recommend Claudie as a sensitive, challenging and insightful facilitator and coach.

I attended OC’s workshop on Facilitation and Brainstorming earlier this year. I was pleasantly surprised by the relevance, style and tone of the training. She was able to adapt the material and her own experience to best help the individuals and the group as a whole in an interesting and informative fashion.

We did some work with OC on team building and dealing with business growth. I have to say that I was somewhat sceptical at first but I found it to be a very positive and rewarding excerise. They are fun to work with, very insightful and help people get the best out of themselves. My team warmed to them immediately and really enjoyed the experience. I am sure it will help us to develop as a group in a more cohesive way.

Since meeting Sam at the end of 2010 it has been an absolute pleasure working with her. She is an expert in her field and I had no hesitation in bringing her on board to help us establish the agency values and our employee engagement process. Her approach and personality was outstanding and the regular positive feedback that I had from all members of staff is a testament to her ability to really connect with individuals as well as the management team.
