Derek is an experienced manager and this gives his consultancy a practical edge and an understanding of how organisations work.
'Derek's approach to our Diversity and Inclusion programme was a breath of fresh air. He spent time meeting people beforehand and really got under the skin of our issues so it felt completely bespoke.
He never made it feel like an exercise in political correctness. In fact, the complete opposite, he was authentic and real and brought a great sense of humour which the team really connected with. I really look forward to working with Derek again soon.'
