From our CEO

March 2020

2020 – The start of a new decade

Chris Pethers

As we look back on 2019 certain words come to mind. Exciting, potential and challenge. Let me explain. Exciting as PeopleSmart wins new logos across diverse industries and businesses to design and delivery bespoke learning journeys. Potential as our marketing and business development efforts start to bear fruits and we gain increased brand recognition for being a global, innovative and reliable consulting partner. Finally challenge since given the growth we have needed to expand our reach and build without losing the special inclusive culture that defines our team and our clients appreciate so much.

So what does 2020 have in store for us?

  • Thanks to much hard work by the PeopleSmart Consultants and the Project-Operations team we have signed several contracts for services across EMEA and globally.
  • We have officially launched our off the shelf learning solutions catalogue for those companies wanting to complement in house and existing customized solutions
  • PeopleSmart has signed a partnership agreement with FACET5 to be able to offer an even broader range of individual and team psychometric services to clients
  • We will be partnering with established event organizations to continue to contribute to the community of Learning & Development, Talent and HR decision-makers as a whole
  • PeopleSmart continues to build on the emotional intelligence tools and modules developed by Genos International as we fundamentally believe in the importance of EI in business and life generally
  • PeopleSmart will be chairing, facilitating and delivering key notes at international conferences in Sevilla, Budapest, Paris, Amsterdam, Sofia and Zurich

All in all it will be another packed year!

So here’s thanking our clients, partners, suppliers and the entire PeopleSmart team for their custom, loyalty, trust and support.

We look forward to learning and building with you!
