Mass meeting in Soesterberg Chapel?

Just back from another successful assignment facilitating a group of 50 senior leaders from around the world. We loved the venue and the great work that emerged over the day.

 We are delighted to have worked with the Global Leadership Team of Unit 4 over the last year. This global software organisation with a HQ in The Netherlands meets on a quarterly basis to refine and align around their global strategy. We have enjoyed supporting and facilitating their Strategic Forums in Berlin, Benidorm and Utrecht. The latest forum in The Netherlands in mid November had a novel ecclesiastical feel in a converted chapel! This inspirational setting resulted in great dialogue and unity of purpose among business leaders from around the globe. We are proud that Develop Potential has played a small part in their ongoing success and growth.       


"We have worked with  Develop Potential for the past 4 years. Ciaran developed and delivered a programme to engage all our people managers in effective use of Performance Management and Development. This has been critical to our success as we have expanded globally. Ciaran’s experience and engaging style really connected with our people. He encouraged and stimulated our managers to really engage with our technical staff in very practical ways. This extends to the workshops conducted via Skype with our management teams in US and Asia. More recently he developed and delivered a management foundations programme for over 40 of our front line team managers which was a huge success. In particular our managers gained a lot from embedding the Discovery Insights personality profiles into the training"  -- Eileen Martin, Zenith Technologies

"Having decided to implement a performance management process across the KN Group we decided to engage the services of Develop Potential to assist us. I found the support provided invaluable in terms of guiding us to position and develop the model we were implementing. They helped us to fully exploit best practice across other organisations and leveraged off the operational and HR experience of the team at Develop Potential. I feel their key strengths are that they really engaged with us and understood our needs, and collaborated with us in creating and delivering a solution that we are confident will work!”  -- Ken Giles, KN Network Services

"Develop Potential  has been a key ingredient in the successful relaunch of our business. They kept us motivated and focussed and ensured we had a clear plan that differentiated us from our competitors. He has helped us stick to the original vision, adapt when necessary and not get distracted from a longer term view of the business. Ciaran encouraged and helped us to keep an eye on monthly progress and make ongoing plans. He has helped us in presenting a very professional image with key partners. We intend to keep Develop Potential as part of our team as we continue to grow the business." -- Niall Walsh, IDAS

"Ciaran has excellent facilitation skills, a very engaging style and seeks to understand our world. He certainly provoked fresh thinking! We valued the expertise, high integrity and good value that Develop Potential delivered."-- Jason Whooley, BIM

"I had the pleasure of working with Ciaran on a number of projects. He has an acute understanding of how manufacturing operates, he appreciates the complexities within operational processes and his focus on the business enabled our leaders to find creative ways to transform the business. He is solutions focused and facilitated our teams to reach their own potential. Ciaran is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him. He added high value to our projects and his detailed and comprehensive programmes were fit for purpose." -- Judi Kinnane, MSD
