Real work on the ground with organisations of all types, sizes & cultures fuels our growing knowledge, insights & expertise across the increasingly cross-cutting sectors that we serve, the sharing of which is at the heart of our mission to give value through our advisory, speaking & training activities.

Formal testimonials from organisational clients are provided in the Strategy & Evaluation section of the website under each project. Jay has mentored hundreds of people at various stages & aspects of their life, career & business. While individual clients are not generally approached for feedback formally, a sample of unsolicitated testimonials from mentoring clients is offered for illustration.
