Testimonials - Carcharodon

Laurie quickly understood the core messages I needed to get across, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of my draft slides.

Laurie's method of assisting me to develop my own presentation style and also helping to refine and polish the slide pack itself was very powerful. He was able to call upon his experience of different communication styles and how to appeal to different members of the audience, which I found both new and fascinating.

Having your Consultant (Laurie Dummett) on board brought additional confidence to the whole team. He brought the tools to help us change and the right kind of experience (I like the fact he has worked inside industry and not just consulted at it) to empathise with us and provide genuinely practical advice. He is also well connected with other parts of industry so could challenge the way we think based on real examples of innovative practice.
However, it was not what he did, it was the way he did it. No ego, no posturing and no standard solutions. Laurie simply focused on what was best for our business and making the journey as easy as possible for all of us. We all learnt a lot from Laurie and not just for one project - these are skills we can take with us for the rest of our careers.
