"it was really inspiring"
Thank you Charlotte and Gemma for the facilitation you ran, it was a difficult conversation to have and I really appreciate how you both approached it and created a safe space. It was really inspiring and made me think about how other difficult conversations could be handled.
Gurjit, Session Participant
"skill and creativity"
Gemma and Rachel were so expert in guiding our sessions with skill and creativity. It felt very collegiate and collaborative and we were very happy with the outcomes of the session. I'd love to work with them again.

"made an impossible situation feel more achievable"
Charlotte's ability to authentically listen and truly 'hear' made, what felt like an impossible situation, feel considerably more achievable. This is an immense skill - the three of us had been circular on subjects for months, whilst Charlotte had some clarity for us in a couple of hours.
Anon, Team Coaching Participant
"my facilitation will be the better for it"
Working with Gemma really helped me to understand what I bring into the room, how my approach and reactions as a facilitator impact the room. It was great to get this perspective as well as thinking about what I might want to achieve from a session or elicit from a group. I'm sure that my facilitation will be the better for it.

"most successful session"
I wanted to thank you for your wonderful facilitation last week. It was the most successful session in generating group discussion and the two-way flow of ideas and that’s entirely down to your skill in reading and managing the room. Such a key moment for us and you delivered it beautifully.
Lisa Burger, Former Executive Director, National Theatre
"welcoming and inclusive"
Gemma and Charlotte did a brilliant job of creating a welcoming and inclusive space for our large international group. We hadn't all met each other before and were meeting online from multiple timezones, but our time together felt natural and meaningful thanks to Gemma and Charlotte's guidance. We kept on time and on topic, had some really helpful capture from the sessions. Gemma and Charlotte were very thorough while still maintaining the flexibility needed to go with the needs of the group on the day. I don't think the event would have been the success it was without their facilitation.
Flo Reynolds, ILS Programme Manager,
National Centre for Writing
Charlotte did us two fantastic sessions which reignited our strategic work around environmental responsibility. The group was taken through really clearly big picture thinking and how that translated into really concrete actions.

"meaningful & engaging"
Gemma and Charlotte ran an all staff away day for the Unicorn Theatre. They were clear and supportive in shaping a brief and the away day, and are confident and able at delivering a meaningful and engaging session for staff.
Helen Tovey, Co-Executive Director, Unicorn Theatre
Charlotte and Gemma were incredibly thoughtful and open facilitators who led the space in a non-judgemental manner and created an environment where everyone felt comfortable expressing their thoughts, fears and hopes.
Justin Audibert, Artistic Director, Unicorn Theatre
Gemma and Charlotte facilitated the session beautifully. They held the group gently and positively, creating a safe space for open and creative exploration.
Anna, Away Day participant, Unicorn Theatre
"safe space to explore"
With Gemma's brilliant help I was able to listen to myself, set realistic goals and an ambitious long term plan. By creating a safe space for me to explore, Gemma focused my attention on what I wanted to achieve, without judgement or pressure.
Racheli Sternberg, Coachee
Charlotte offered a gentle yet consistent and firm coaching style which I found enormously helpful in clarifying and moving beyond my limiting beliefs. The sessions have strengthened my confidence and belief in myself, an independent in the arts, as I embark on new projects and 'catch-up' after becoming a mother.
Katriona Holmes, Coachee
"gentle yet firm"
Through her authentic gentle yet firm facilitation (coaching and presence), Rachel has the power to change the way people think about themselves and others in an instant.
Sarah Pickthall, Inclusive Cultures programme for Clore Leadership
"re-align with our values"
Gemma held the space for us expertly at our Team and Board during Away Day. We started by co-creating a supportive space in order to be able to stretch. We particularly appreciated the invitation to re-align with our values as the session progressed -- this gave us a sense of ownership over the process and journey. There were moments of humour and lightness, which enabled us to disentangle some of the trickier corners of conversation. The facilitation was exceptional and we walked away from that day a tighter team with a stronger shared vision across the board.
Alia Alzougbi, Joint CEO of Shubbak
"a fabulous team"
I have worked with Gemma in the past and have always loved her style as a trainer. This was the first time I have worked with Charlotte. They make you feel very relaxed, complement each other as trainers and encourage you to think outside the box without you realizing that you are. A fabulous team and I would certainly recommend them.
