What people say

In an entertaining and engaging session, Helen provided us with a range of models and methods of thinking through approaches to incorporating change management into all assignments. The session reinforced what we know, modelled approaches which could be used, and got us thinking about ways different professional groups use the concept of ‘change management’. A great session tailored to the consulting reality, packed with useful ‘take-away’ techniques.
~ Barbara Reed, Director, Recordkeeping Innovation

A terrific mix of information and interaction among the participants. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Other facilitators learnt from Helen’s delivery technique. Web developers had ‘light bulb’ moments in understanding how certain clients and projects had come adrift, as well as gaining insight into strategies for addressing these challenges. Others benefited from the succinct and engaging delivery of these concepts – a positive refresher and providing tools for applying and communicating change.
~ Grant Young, Director, Innovation Strategy, Zumio

A great workshop to learn about the theoretical underpinnings of Change Management. I really enjoyed the interaction with the other participants, made possible with great facilitation. I also enjoyed the absence of cookie-cutter solutions to making change, this workshop highlighted the problems with such approaches. Overall excellent content and experience – I’ll be recommending this to others!
