Who we are and how we help

Founded by Phil Marsland in 2016, our purpose is to help people and organisations thrive and grow.


With many years experience in senior positions and HR roles (see below), Phil brings not only considerable expertise but a talent for insights and pragmatic solutions.

Our consultancy draws on these strengths and is different to many who tend to have a formulaic approach.


We really listen to your needs, to your challenges and work with you to agree and create fit for purpose, bespoke solutions.  Solutions that work for you and your organisation, right now. 

We definitely don't paste on so called 'best practice' ill fitting fads, that at very best allow you to copy someone else.  Fads that maybe allow you to aspire to be like someone else, but almost certainly will be a pale imitation of someone else. 

We want to help you to be you, and to work with your strengths, so that you and your organisation thrive and grow.



At times we collaborate with a number of trusted expert associates allowing us to deliver a complete service for you and your organisation.

 Our Associates.
