Redesign your organisation to thrive in a complex world.

I help ambitious, mid sized companies going through significant change build new capability. My goal is to help your business to compete in an increasingly complex world.

“We don’t learn fast enough here” is a symptom. It could be a symptom of your learning strategy being too passive, too conventional or too focused on control. It definitely means your approach to learning isn’t disrupting the status quo.

Learning is the most powerful accelerator of change and growth. To capitalise means helping your people to be as good at learning new things as they are at executing on what they already know.

Do you need to create this environment to accelerate change? You’ll need a clear learning ‘philosophy’ and approach, connected to the right principles and tools. You’ll also need to build the capability of your managers and your HR / L&D function to accelerate your new strategy.  

Four ways I can help:  

  • Systematically review your current learning strategy and make insightful recommendations that improve it
  • Help you set out a new, ambitious, growth focused learning strategy for your business
  • Help you develop a new learning operating model that changes why, how and where your people learn
  • Work with you to reshape your L&D / Capability team and their priorities for now, and the future 

As an independent advisor and thinking partner I’ve worked with evolving businesses including Atalian Servest, Capgemini, Coty, Dyson, Fortnum & Mason, Kwik-Fit, Lidl UK, Nomad Foods, Ricoh, Samsung, Specsavers and VolkerWessels, helping them to think differently and reset their learning strategy. 

You can read testimonials from business leaders I’ve worked with below and on the other pages of my website.

Paul has been working with us on our strategic path towards increasing the value add of retail training to commercial business performance. He has challenged and supported us in equal measure, asking some amazing questions that have disrupted our thinking and set us on a new trajectory.

I can help you if...

Your current approach to organisational learning isn’t developing the new capability and thinking you now need

Your teams need to adapt, innovate and solve new problems

Your people have high expectations of learning from you

Your business and learning strategies need to be 100% ‘in sync’

‘Working’ and ‘learning’ are still treated as separate things

When your business says ‘learning‘ it still only means ‘training

Your leaders struggle to role model and support continual learning 

"Paul's work with L&D leaders is right at the cutting edge and the product of a tremendous depth of experience and insight. I'm repeatedly impressed by how he helps with practical ways to approach complex issues, bringing a rare blend of challenge and support that makes pushing the boundaries feel safe to try."

Paul understands L&D as well as anyone I've ever met and has a really refreshing and progressive perspective. I'd recommend Paul to any L&D Manager / Director or HR Director looking to transform their L&D strategy or offering.”

- James Powys, Managing Director at Insight Coaching Solutions

"Paul challenged my thinking around L&D; to look at learning as a strategic driver for businesses, to see yourself as an L&D professional who partners, consults and delivers for the business through learning and inspiration. Paul brings an inspirational, innovative and personable approach that rubs off on all those around him."

- Gavin Sutton, Head of Learning & Development at Ogilvy UK
