Hello Joy, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you very much for all the effort you have put into working with us. I feel we made great strides last Tuesday and it’s only since I’ve had a chance to really think it through today that I fully appreciate the progress we made.
I especially appreciated how you were able to question us so thoroughly and deep dive into what really matters in our organisation. You seem to have a really good ‘grasp’ of how we do things and how it fits together at Jaguar Land Rover which is not easy! I’ll continue to review your inspirational materials and thank you again..
Louise Harrison, Jaguar Landrover Powertrain Capability
We had our first workshop on Monday and it went incredibly well The Organisational Capabilities you challenged us to set have really landed well and seem to be working for our teams in practice, so it’s all starting to feel very ‘real’ now – all very exciting! 
Ruth Noake, Jaguar Landrover
Joy developed competency frameworks for our leadership and administration roles. She further developed training programmes mapped to the competencies to enable our employees to demonstrate and receive feedback on their performance and to identify development needs.
