Case Studies

Case Study: Self-Marketing Over the past 8 years, working both with individuals and at times as an Associate Consultant with global HR consulting groups in the City, Lucia has used her expertise to increase individuals' skills in writing CVs, communicating with various intermediaries, securing interviews, doing well at these, and to support them to be consistent and themselves throughout the process. This support, provided to hundreds of individuals, has most definitely had positive outcomes for many, including earlier success, expanded choice, better information exchange, more satisfaction in their career move.

Case Study: Career Change Working at a City Council as a temporary clerk, James was dissatisfied. He believed he could achieve and earn more. In creating a design for work, which included a thorough review of skills, James could see the personal potential of a career in project management. He became clear and intentional and began taking on roles to augment his skills. Opportunities came along, he applied self-marketing he'd learnt and secured suitable roles.

Two and a half years later James was working as Assistant Project Manager on a multi-million pound project, earning four times his original salary.

Case Study: Business Start & Growth With no prior business experience, this former nurse re-generated a failing local health and fitness centre for women. Support was provided to refine cash-flow projections, help prioritise and plan activity, allay some concerns, adopt a systematic approach, negotiate cost reductions and complete the deal.

Helen turned her acquired business around in less than a year. It continues to grow quickly and to serve the local community, also through staff employment and training. Through our nomination, Helen's South East England business won the ESF SME Business Award in 2007.

Case Study: Redeployee Support As an Associate Consultant, Lucia Bardoul coached and consulted individuals who were on a ‘redeployment list' as part of an innovative pilot project. Within 6 months of receiving support, 75% of clients were either successful in securing appropriate roles internally, had left the business to obtain more appropriate positions or had left to start their own businesses. These pilot results helped the consultancy secure the longer term contract.
