The first 25 years of TPS consulting has been anything but boring – here is a small collection of the events that stand out the most for me:
Most interesting development centre venue?
Most uninteresting development centre venue?
Most enjoyable place to run a training course?
Longest journey to a training venue?
Biggest surprise provided by a client?
When asked by a client if I’d be willing to help them communicate with staff about a new change programme – they then rolled back a partition where 200 staff were waiting to be addressed.
Most satisfying feedback received?
“Your programme changed the way I think about myself and my work and it has been the single most important development in my career.”
Most unexpected encounter?
Most penny-pinching client?
“We have paid Gerry for a full day so does anybody have any personal problems they would like to discuss with him for the remaining 15 minutes?”
Biggest contract walked away from for ethical reasons?
£75,000. Poorer but sleep more easily.
Best consultancy experience?
Still to come! The future is bright.
