Robert Estill, VP Strategic Planning & Portfolio, Marathon Oil Corporation

“I have rarely come across a consultancy that has been able to successfully manage the strong, varied opinions of nineteen senior managers to create a strategy that each one of us was happy to own and support. For this reason we have continued to work with you as our main provider of leadership development within Europe. Organizational development is not an easy field to work within and I consider you to be among the best that I have come across within this industry globally.”

Alison Goligher, Former Managing Director, Schlumberger OFS UK

“It is inspiring to see such energy and ‘can do’ attitudes in the employees at all levels. This positive energy and enthusiasm is unparalleled in my experience and would not have been possible without the complete, professional trust the management team has in MB Consulting Ltd and their ability to work with us to design, deliver and consolidate the behavioural change in our organisation that our employees deserve.”

Sue MacDonald, HR Director, Marathon Oil Europe

“Our success in achieving the Sunday Times top 100 Best Companies list for 3 years running is tangible evidence that your pragmatic, down to earth approach to behavioural change works. This is the first time I have worked with a consultant who has made such a practical, demonstrable and most important, lasting difference to our business.”

Graham Gall, Managing Director, Falck Nutec Ltd

“Thank you for the time spent coaching and mentoring me over the last few months. Your understanding, knowledge and application of leadership modules are realistic and applicable to any business stream. This has opened the potential to grow, through attitude and culture, the leadership team around me and in turn grow our performance to develop our business potential in future training markets.”

Sam Gomersall, Director Commercial Portfolio Dev. CO2 Deepstore Ltd (Part of the Petrofac Group)

“Following your recent involvement providing a ‘behavioural’ perspective to our interviewing process, we have successfully appointed an outstanding candidate whom we believe will be a tremendous asset to CO2DeepStore as grow our business. It was obvious from your report that you had made a big effort to understand our business values and drivers and we highly value that level of true commitment from a specialist advisor”

Jim Bowzer, Regional VP, North America Production Ops, Marathon Oil Corporation

“Margaret Brown is highly motivated, professional, courteous, well organized and very competent in the areas of organizational behavior. She has had a significant impact on our leadership team and I would highly recommend her to work with teams to improve organizational and leadership performance.”

Linette Isaacs, Director, ENJO UK

“The seminar that you prepared and delivered to our top sales consultants was outstanding. I have had excellent feedback from all who attended, including our CEO of ENJO International. I found it thoroughly enjoyable, inspirational and incredibly useful. Your direction and use of our language was excellent - so much so that it would be easy to believe that you actually worked for ENJO!”

Elaine Shepherd, SAP Helpdesk Analyst, Shell

“I felt the tutor was involved on a personal note rather than just being separate from the trainees as often happens on courses”

Sandy Kemp, (Partner) Simpson and Marwick

“I am delighted to recommend Margaret Brown, who was first involved in working with me for a mutual client, and who impressed me so much that I asked her to work similarly with our firm. She provided invaluable feedback, comments, and advice from the perspective of an independent expert, which I am now applying to the team. She has a particular talent for cutting to the important parts of her brief, and explaining her advice in a way that is sympathetic to those she is working with.”

Eddy W. T Ng, Director of Quality, Schlumberger OFS (US Land)

“All managers who have participated in this workshop in Corpus Christi have been extremely impressed with the content, layout and professional presentation of the packs, and the workshop has far exceeded the expectations of every participant without exception.”

Cindy T. Miller, Former Vice President, Shell Services International

“The regular feedback about your enthusiasm, professionalism, knowledge and overall sparkle was outstanding and rare. We feel fortunate to have had you delivering in every ITS location around the world.”

John Spencer, Facilitator, Shell Services International

“It has been a real pleasure co-presenting the Service Excellence conferences around the world. Something this good should go on forever! Looking back on the experiences of Houston, Manchester, the Hague, Melbourne and Kuala Lumpur, it has not only been great fun, but also for me a real opportunity to work with a truly professional facilitator. I have learned so much over the last few months – what great opportunities”

Martin Bruce, Director, Scotia Homes

“Our business has gained hugely with increased sales, improved team working and a clear focus for continual company and personal development”

Sue Brightman, Founder & Managing Director, Bightman Glover International

“You are elegance and professionalism in motion and you have absolutely made these conferences this week in Houston. I believe, in your quieter moments, you can safely say to yourself that you are one of the best in the world. We’re lucky to have you!”
