We wrote the entries that helped VA Consultants and their client become finalists for three national training awards in 2017.

In a highly-competitive market, being an awards finalist can help create that extra edge and adds external validation of the quality of your work.

VA’s cutting-edge leadership development programme has helped their client improve the quality of performance management, drive down recruitment costs as more people are choosing to stay in the organisation and provided a platform to embed the client’s new values, which are already resulting in increased performance.

It’s no wonder they were shortlisted in three categories across two sets of national awards.

Client Andy Harmer, VA’s Head of Leadership Development, said:

“I worked with Louise in shaping a series of awards submissions for a high quality, volume (> 1000 leaders) leadership development project that was designed and delivered by VA Consultants.

“Having been involved in the complexity involved in awards submission process in a previous employment, I was delighted to experience the great service offered by her that greatly simplified the awards ‘experience’. This included her providing guidance around the selection of appropriate awards her skilful scripting of the purpose and outcome statements, and helping shape an approach to measure behaviour change and business impact.

“At all stages Louise was relational, articulate, enthusiastic, patient, professional and outcome-focussed. I greatly appreciated the why, how & what of her approach – I’d recommend her to you unconditionally.”
