We are a training and coaching company who connect the leadership needs of your organisation with the career ambitions of your employees so you engage, retain and develop your future leaders.
Antoinette’s background is in people and organisation development for companies like P&G and Accenture. A defining moment of her career was when she helped start up Avanade, a joint venture between Accenture and Microsoft. That was the inspiration behind her book, Grow Your Geeks – A Handbook for Developing Leaders in High-Tech Organisations.
Our experience is the connection between leadership development and career management is missing in a lot of companies. There is a chasm between what employees are looking for from their careers, the support they are getting from their managers and the messages they are hearing from the organisation.
We operate at three levels in the organisation to address these challenges. We call it the Power of Three.
Discover the six steps to keeping and developing the high-performing leaders you need to be successful.

Underpinning all of our Programmes is our six-step methodology – The LEADER System – which ensures our development initiatives are aligned with the strategy of the organisation and really make a difference to the business.
"We’ve had some very senior figures, from managing directors through to middle management, working with Antoinette. Antoinette’s ability to adapt and engage that wide variety of audience in the same way – and at the same time – has been brilliant. I don’t think everybody could do that as well as Antoinette"
"The work Antoinette has done with the leadership team gives us exactly what we need - a focus on developing the business rather than working in the business"
"Antoinette's team have not only helped us develop a talent development strategy and approach. They've become a delivery partner in the interventions we've put in place."
"What did I want from this programme? I wanted leaders to know how to manage and mentor the next generation in the business and to develop a culture that will take us forward. We've made great progress in the last 12 months."
"The great thing about the programme was that it included practical tools and techniques that supported the theories and helped me apply them in practice."
"It was valuable to focus on how to define a career conversation so it focuses on growth and development."
"The Career Conversation Toolkit has everything you need to have a useful review. I now have simple and helpful techniques that mean I can have these important conversations in a way that is productive and beneficial."
"We have received some great, positive feedback. One delegate said that you had inspired her to take control of her career and move forward - you couldn't ask for better than that! "
"The career conversation model empowers employees by being based on solutions, clients' strengths and on the future. The delivery is done through accelerated learning methods which motivate and bring about behavioural change. Participants walk away with a practical toolkit they can start using right away."
"In UNESCO, we benefitted from your expertise in the area of career management which has been honed over decades and has culminated in an approach to skills development which is very effective. The tools you have developed are innovative and practical at the same time."
"The workshop content was extremely well thought through, very professional, innovative and also interactive. The material and the toolkit received during the workshop has been enormously beneficial, provides excellent and detailed information and is very user friendly."
