Having experienced Philippa’s style, professionalism and enthusiasm at a meeting, I promptly asked her to facilitate two Executive team time-out sessions for me. Not only did she do this with confidence, but her manner and approach to often difficult issues put everyone at ease and allowed a flow of discussion, debate and reflection, exceeding expectations of all attending. Her preparation using local research, organisational publications and one-to-one conversations to understand the environment and complexity of the organisation and people she is dealing with was excellent.

I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Transformation Partners provided support to the Senior Management Team at Bridgend to help with teambuilding and clarifying the top priorities for the Council. Philippa and her team provided individuals with feedback and support and facilitated some larger sessions for both officers and members. We found them to be sensitive to individual needs, able to challenge constructively and – most importantly – a wish to work with the team to achieve the best results.

Working with David and Philippa these last two years on public service training and development has been a pleasure. Both are excellent communicators and have high professional standards that build trust and respect from those they are working with.

Just wanted to let you know that I thought your teaching session was really great and I enjoyed it. Thanks for your coaching sessions as well, that last one really helped me a lot in getting back to work. It was nice to talk with someone who really could understand where I was coming from.


Just a short line to thank you once more for your incredible feedback and ability to help me understand ‘myself’. I will try to put into practice your advice and I cannot wait until we meet again after the summer.

Excellent feedback and discussion with David. He made a very good job with the group during the whole week. Thanks a lot!

 I found Philippa’s expert coaching skills invaluable during a very important period of change in the business. She helped me see the issues more clearly and to understand what we were facing and how we may address them
