Testimonial from ongoing Leadership Programme
"andpartnership always deliver great thought provoking content in an engaging format. I’ve worked with andpartnership in both virtual and physical training setting and they excel at both. In fact, this year we had to move to virtual training with them and the feedback has been phenomenal – world class and best virtual training I’ve ever attended have been quoted.
Further to this as a client I know that the team at andpartnership are well researched in the areas they deliver and keep up to date with the latest thinking which gives me confidence that our teams at Sumo are getting relevant, up to date content delivered in a facilitated, thought provoking way.
Added to this andpartnership are there to provide insight to help guide launch and communication engagement for programmes; nothing is off the shelf, they take the time to understand the culture of the organisation and work with me in achieving our aims. I would recommend them over and over again!"

On our Leadership Development Programme,
“Anne ran a bespoke leadership development course for our executive team. This brought us together to examine individual and team behaviours and leadership styles. The team were challenged and learnt useful tools and greater insight for improving performance and leadership and came away feeling inspired and

“Just wanted to say thank you to Lee, and all of you for being a great group. Sharing all your life experiences with us. I really enjoyed the course. I hope you all keep in touch and share any experiences you may have in the future with the group.”

On our Leadership Programme, ‘Be Better Every Day’,
“Thanks so much, the training sessions have been great and the online delivery was beyond my expectations! (I’ve certainly learnt how to use Zoom and what it can do!) Looking forward to getting stuck in with some practice.”
Senior Leader, Wilko
On our individual coaching sessions,
“I didn’t know what to expect, and I have really valued and enjoyed the sessions. I feel quite different now, a lot calmer and more measured in my approach to challenges. I think about things differently. I check myself – what really matters here, what do I actually need to say/do for the impact I want. I experience less conflict in my role. Before I was happy to face into conflict (or maybe if I’m honest -inflate it) I now often I diffuse it – and what do you know? there is less next time. With your great questioning and challenges, I’ve found new ways to achieve my goal of extending and maintaining my reach and influence within the organisation. It’s not all about moving up the hierarchy. I feel much better as an individual. Happy to recommend coaching for others."
‘Head of’ at a Global Logistics Organisation
On our ‘Being at Your Best’ leadership programme,
“Taking time out to work with the andpartnership to develop yourself whilst seeking your next role was hugely beneficial, relevant and enjoyable. David created a very positive and participative feel to the workshops structuring the agenda to keep energy levels high whilst in the virtual environment. The opportunity to share experience and ideas with the other participants as well as expend our networks was also hugely beneficial.

On another of our bespoke leadership programme,
“The facilitator was very engaging, knowledgeable and their delivery and facilitation skills were excellent. When the group were asked if they had learnt anything valuable from the programme, the answer was yes! They felt they were more confident in coaching others, change management, listening skills, how to deal with self-doubt, self-awareness and managing people and their emotions. They also stated that they could see themselves applying this new knowledge into their work as they were more open to feedback from colleagues and teams, they have more self-awareness about how they are at work and in situations, and most importantly how to use coaching in the workplace to get optimal results from colleagues and staff.”

On another leadership development programme,
The course was delivered via in person and online workshops. Anne effectively designed the programme, ensuring that momentum was maintained throughout, whether delivered face-to face or remotely. It was a great success!"
Chief Executive, Government Agency
On a bespoke leadership programme, ‘Lead into Action’,
“I have never come away from a course like this with a genuine change in my mindset and thought process as to how, why and when I can make better decisions and understand the appropriate outcomes for all stakeholders. I have to add that 100% of this has to attributed to the engaging sessions conducted by Ian. There may be course theory, chats and practical exercises - but for me Ian is the 'course'. For me, Ian's energy and passion was key and I hope we continue (as a business) to utilise his skills and experience. First course I have genuinely benefited from.

On culture change
We’ve worked with Ian and andpartnership for over 8 years now and we have never been anything but delighted with the value they’ve brought to our business. From design through to delivery we can always have open and honest conversations to ensure the end product is exactly what we want and need for our people and our Brand. They continue to be innovative and forward thinking which has been highlighted recently by moving all of our training to effective digital training.
