What our clients say:
A most welcome & timely reminder of urban & some rural societies area challenges & trends brought into sharper focus by COVID-19.
The leadership course has been great. Lots of different ways to explore new ideas, and new concepts. I have found it interesting to reflect on my own ways of working, and how I work with others in teams and as individuals. The online sessions have been well structured using interesting techniques, such as meditation and breathing exercises to ensure that people feel that they are working together whilst being home based.
I was pleasantly surprised as to how much this course changed my perspective of what good leadership is and more importantly what it can be. I thoroughly enjoyed the process of self reflection and growth in a supportive group within the fun and interactive format. The course was managed brilliantly online and I shall definitely be taking forward with what we learned with my colleagues and continue the momentum. Many thanks to the awesome trainers who put the course together.
It has really helped me on a deep personal journey which will benefit me in both my personal and professional life going forward. It has completely exceeded my expectations and I have gained so much more from it than I thought I would. Such a brilliant course.
The support was there even though we couldn’t be face to face; kept everyone engaged throughout each session.
The trainers were outstanding; the whole delivery was brilliant; the delivery was very clear.
Your knowledge of the sector and of the potential candidates experience, made finding excellent people for the shortlist very easy.
Campbell Tickell approached our recruitment project with a clear understanding of our requirements and were responsive in devising a successful recruitment programme to suit our needs.
Campbell Tickell understood immediately what we were looking for in the recruitment of a Managing Director and were able to source suitable candidates. They were also able to work within the budgets we had available and were flexible during a challenging time (lockdown).
In the midst of the pandemic, the project delivered by Campbell Tickell was innovative, professional and timely. The project was managed extremely well and gave us the confidence to progress when the easy option would have been to delay.
Thank you Campbell Tickell for organising an excellent webinar on how to effectively engage with our customers. Your knowledge of our sector combined with your well respected reputation enabled you to attract an appropriate range of relevant and informed speakers. We will certainly be using the recording of the webinar as part of our training for staff.
Campbell Tickell worked very closely with NHS England and Improvement, and the Integrated Commissioning System (ICS) to develop a housing needs assessment. This will be invaluable in meeting the needs of people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health conditions in the four local authorities.
The level of detail and range of data sets, which were brought together from a housing, social care, and health perspective, have provided an evidenced based projection of future housing need amongst this population. This is so often overlooked in strategic housing plans.
The housing needs assessment provides the ICS with an amazing opportunity to strategically work with housing colleagues to meet the housing needs identified for the next 10 years.
I thought I should just drop you a line to say how successful the recent recruitment process has been.
We have now appointed two NEDs as a result of this recruitment and they are already making a significant and valuable contribution to Board and other discussions across a wide range of issues.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Campbell Tickell on developing a ‘Best in Class’ Housing Offer for Broadland and South Norfolk District Councils. CT engaged positively and entirely within the spirit of the brief.
The operating model CT created to help tackle homelessness and provide high quality temporary accommodation will shape the housing agenda and improve the lives of our most vulnerable clients in the area. We are really excited to proceed, hopefully with full support of both our councils, to implement this model.
I thought the CT Regulatory Returns Masterclass was all very useful and gives me a good tool to go back into the business to ‘beef’ things up.
Our board and senior team has received excellent advice, insights and steers on a few pieces of important work recently. The candid and constructive approach from CT consultants challenged our thinking and supported much better business outcomes than otherwise I think we would have achieved. It has all helped progress our business and added value when and where we needed it. Much appreciated.
Stephen Bull heard and understood our requirements and delivered the project in such a way as to add value to the business.
I was hesitant about booking for ‘the art of the online chair’ masterclass with James Tickell and Tracey McEachran. Whilst I recognised the difference in approach that online chairing required, I was unsure what it would be like attending an online course.
I was really surprised how easy and rewarding I found this online experience. I am acutely aware that it all depends on whose leading the course and how comfortable and confident they are with the virtual world, and as course leaders. I learnt so many tips and tricks, as well and gained confidence in my own capability in the online world space. I enjoyed meeting others in virtual space and sharing experiences from across the UK.
Tracey and James are excellent course leaders and undertake their roles with super style, great engagement and demonstrate their deep experience and insight. It has made a difference to me and Pobl Group!
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you Niku and Campbell Tickell for making our virtual board training session so successful. The board training event was for a new board which had recently been recruited for Shropshire Council Housing Company. The recruitment and the training took place during the Covid crisis and was the first virtual training session many of the board members have taken part in. The event was organised fantastically well, the pre-planning, the exercises and feedback session. Niku was a great trainer and pulled the board together successfully in difficult circumstances. Our entire group had a wonderful time and the session bought the board together.
Thank you for an excellent initiative, which was well run and expertly facilitated. It gave a timely opportunity for the Board to consider the post-Covid environment and feed into our strategic planning process. I would thoroughly recommend CT’s scenario planning exercise.
