Leadership Development and Culture Change Partner

British Sugar is a leading global sugar producers, employing 42,000 people in 10 countries. In the UK, it produces around 1 million tonnes of sugar from 7 million tonnes of sugar beet from 4 factories and a workforce of around 1,000. As part of the GEARS change programme, they wanted to energise and develop key talent within the middle to senior management teams. We were engaged to help design a tailored accredited ILM Leadership and Management Programme for the 120 high potential employees to enable them to assist the Board in driving through much needed changes. As part of the applied learning process it also involved alignment to the £1M Challenge per annum of business improvements from each cohort going through the programme over a three year period. This partnership extended to designing and delivering a Values in Action programme to ensure there was measurement of how things were done in addition to what was done. www.absugar.com

"The management development programme made a real difference to the attitude and behaviour of virtually all delegates. The programme supported our aims to create a culture of ambition and achievement. It provided delegates with the techniques and knowledge to improve their capability to manage, coach and lead people more effectively within a changing and growing business and a difficult economic climate."

"I had the pleasure of working through a senior leadership program with Adrian’s coaching and mentorship. From the first meeting I was struck by Adrian’s energy and passion as well as his uncanny ability to get straight to the heart of the matter under discussion. I particularly appreciated the way he rooted out and insisted on dealing with uncomfortable realities when necessary. His knowledge and understanding of leadership theory and practice are extensive and he is able to apply the same easily in fluid situations. Adrian also supported some of my staff in related leadership programs and the feedback I have matches my own experience. I strongly recommend Adrian as a change and leadership facilitator, trainer and coach."
