Clients Say

Jim is an exceptional guru, consultant and advisor. He outhinks any other consultant I have met ...and he's on your side. Practical 'cos he runs his own very sucessful business but enjoys coaching/consultancy. Every time I spend a session with Jim I walk away with a big smile and a fistful of unstoppable ideas.
John Donnelly
MD / The Boss Whisperer
I worked with Jim on a piece of consultancy around the government's business advice services. Jim provided great leadership for the team keeping the work on track and always bringing it back to practical outcomes. His contextual understanding was invaluable. As I watch project managers being fired by the week on the apprentice they could all learn from him how t do it. If I was Lord Sugar I'd hire JIm

Jim is a exceptional person who I was priveleged to work with during my time at Honeyrose. His ability for clear thought, insight and problem solving was a great help to me and Honeyrose and I look forward to being able to work with Jim again in the future.

Foodservice Development Manager / General Mills
For almost 10 years Jim has been my first port of call for a steer on anything centred around developing people and teams. He gives of his time freely and will challenge and narrow down the precise requirements. Hugely competent and knowledgeable, his pithy direct style is so refreshing; Jim is a joy to work with.
Mark Nicholls
MD / Tectona
Jim ran some very effective Assessment Centres. He also facilitated a number of workshops and meetings to help the team capture Best Practice. Jim was always very accessible and ready to provide fresh thinking and new ideas. He has a vast knowledge base and his genuinely cheerful and positive energy cut through ambiguity and vague thinking, helping you to arrive at very results oriented and practical actions that make a difference.
