We engaged Julie Parker to facilitate a senior executive retreat. The context was to further develop strategies to embrace change, deepen cross-portfolio collaboration and support executive well-being. Julie’s application of Action Learning techniques was highly effective and elicited strong engagement from my senior team. The outcomes were achieved not just in the short-term, but in giving us easily applicable strategies and techniques that we have used subsequently to embed and develop the cohesion and mutual support in the team. The techniques also enhance our strategic and creative thinking to ensure inclusive and genuinely empathetic listening and decision-making. Julie is one of very few facilitators I would recommend.
