Leading UK Bank Leadership Workshops
Working with this UK leading bank over several years, the programme was a comprehensive end-to-end service which was able to assess the need and opportunity, design a unique programme for different levels and groups which was refined over time, and supported by 121 coaching with the most senior leaders.
This achieved significant positive feedback as people recognised the cultural, leadership and behavioural opportunities and were eager to be part of the change.
“Catherine has worked with us to shape and create a unique course that rather than follow a traditional teaching method, created a space to discuss/debate and shape the future leadership style and behaviours of our markets business. Catherine’s experience across industry and the public sector gives her a broad perspective that helped us truly challenge our leaders with their own perceptions as to what good leadership looks like.
Feedback from the programme has been overwhelmingly positive and we are starting to see a shift in the perceived strength of our leaders through our colleague engagement surveys. So much is the success of the programme we have expanded the original offer to include more of our leaders.”

Tesco Talent Development
As the HR Director for Commerical, Marketing and International Sourcing we designed, developed and refined over several years a new approach to leadership development. There was a significant need for developing talent from within to resource a fast growing business. At the time Tesco was the UK’s largest private employer, and the second most profitable retailer in the world, employing 530,000 people in 12 trading markets. Our innovative talent development approach became the success model for Tesco, and was adopted across the UK and international business.
“Catherine has always been extremely customer, colleague and business focused. She has strong leadership and change management skills which have left a legacy and improved individual and organisational capacity within the business.”
