Clients and Testimonials

Our clients are the leaders of today and tomorrow and they want to deliver amazing things. They realise that real change takes time and energy and are therefore willing to commit both.

Although we have worked across a range of different sized companies, our specialism is in small and mid-sized companies and we work across a variety of different industries to keep our solutions fresh.

Building Leadership Teams is a sensitive area so we do not have all of our clients represented here but please contact us if you would like to be put in touch with some clients to talk directly to them about their experiences.

Here are just a few of the things our customers have said about us.

“Far from just running a process like a well oiled machine, her insight and input raise her above her peers. Pragmatic application of strategic approaches, delivered by someone with enough empathy to scope what’s going on to the size of your organisation and the stage in it’s lifecycle are Sarah’s trademarks.”

Simon Haughton-Williams, CEO, Adaptavist

 

“New Road Consulting helped create an Operating Board that are all working toward the same goals despite the massive differences in geography. Without Sarah as facilitator I doubt we would be where we are now working toward a strategy that all regions believe in.”

CEO, New technology start up

 

“Sarah acted as an independent facilitator during multiple sessions to successfully achieve both internal cross functional and external communication alignment. Sarah’s strengths during the process were her understanding of the inter-relationships of the key stakeholders and people skills to keep the project on track.”

Greg Minns FD, Vividas

 

“Through interviews and a series of workshops Sarah helped us: come to a common understanding of our strategic objectives: develop a process to help us track our progress: and agree a realistic list of the most important initiatives required for the company to achieve those objectives.”

Volker Shulze, CEO, WTG

 

“Sarah was pivotal in making sure that the views and opinions of all the board members were included in the strategic plan to ensure ownership and buy in through delivery.  Following completion of the strategy map, she built a series of workshops to help create projects and initiatives to drive the delivery of the strategy. Sarah continues to be a key part of the Operating Board keeping the team on focus, driving communication, and measuring delivery against the strategy map.”

CEO, New technology start up

 

“Sarah is a true subject matter expert who helped our organisation to build a high quality strategy management process based on strategy maps and the balanced scorecard approach. She has fantastic change management and coaching skills and is a great person to work with.”

Ilkka Lepavuori, ELCOTEQ

 

“Sarah is an extremely personable and professional consultant who has worked well with our team providing guidance and advice and a comprehensive set of tools to assist with our learning and implementation. I have no hesitation in recommending her for work in strategy formulation and implementation.”

 Simon Tarmey, Divisional Managing Director, Superform

 

Investment in the senior team and leadership buy-in was considered a critical starting point. Having an external who could guide and critique the reporting process was essential and Executive Leadership Team and the Board were firmly on board. Sarah’s support over the first year was invaluable – we moved from monitoring to strategically managing the plan and critically having the right discussions about direction of change and need for strategic investments.“
