Sara Clarkson, Senior Course Director

It would be fair to say that they were simply blown away by your contribution! As a result of meeting and working with you many of the participants found a renewed passion and desire for learning. The group left buzzing on Friday. Because of you and the other contributors during the week they felt inspired to put their leadership skills into action.

Common Purpose

David Forrester, Managing DirectorLightworks team knew that something needed to be done, but we were at a loss as to exactly what was required. IdeaSmiths spent time with me and the senior management team to identify what was required and how best to meet those aims. Despite being a new management team with strong (and often opposing) views, Toby and Kathy did a great job in getting to the root cause of the problems that we were facing. IdeaSmiths came up with a day-long session for the entire company where we were able to address important issues with all the staff. The most refreshing thing about this was how 'real world' the session was. Because of this, the team responded well and put together an action plan for us to bring back to our offices to enact.

Frank Wagner, Product Manager Star Alliance Company Plus
I particularly appreciate IdeaSmiths' dedication to not only facilitating the event on the day but its active involvement from the conceptual phase through planning up until execution. It was remarkable how sensitive IdeaSmiths facilitators were in balancing the need to facilitating procedures firmly but discretely without taking over the entire event. They earned the respect not only of the organisers but also of the participants of the event.

Louise Rowbotham, Learning and Development Officer
Our experience of working with IdeaSmiths was a very positive one. Bryan asked many questions about the outcome we wanted from the session, providing us with the a networking session that fit the purpose with the time constraints we had. This was remarkable as we were unsure at the time of the brief exactly what the programme would look like. The design fitted well and the delivery was successful.

Dafydd Thomas, Head of Consumer Strategy

I commissioned IdeaSmiths to do a challenging role in an area that was new to Remploy. They brought great creative energy and insight to the piece of work and proved to be invaluable in achieving our goals. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone thinking of engaging their services.

Alison Lloyd, People Development Manager
Staff have commented that workshops have been challenging, highly participative, and grounded in the real workplace challenges. IdeaSmiths expertly use creative exercises (using metaphor, images, story telling etc) to more deeply explore the session content.
As a result of this approach IdeaSmith have genuinely contributed to our organisational aims to create a healthy, well functioning organisation.

Sylvia Yates, Executive Director
IdeaSmiths got everyone involved and enthused from the start. The techniques used were perfect for the outcomes we sought. The feedback from partners was more positive than from any other event of a similar nature I have seen; we continue to build on the enthusiasm and thinking generated four months after the event.
A wonderful result!

Steve Dann, Head of Economic Development
Doncaster Council has been impressed with IdeaSmiths' consultants. They are very professional, have excellent strategy, economic and business skills. Our IdeaSmiths consultant is articulate and a good presenter but above all able to provide leadership combined with clarity to an area of work so that all are clear about, and buy into, the best way to approach a specific assignment. I would recommend IdeaSmiths highly.

Bill Cooper, Green Spaces Development Manager
IdeaSmiths grasped the brief quickly and worked conscientiously with my team. I was impressed by how they followed the brief to the letter and, importantly, delivered on time - basic things to get right arguably but critical ones from a client perspective.
