From our CEO

January 2021

2021 – A year of hope and new beginnings

Chris Pethers

2020 is behind us and what a roller coaster year it was for so many both personally and professionally. Whilst the health crisis is far from over, we have hope that 2021 will be lighter for all.

Despite the challenges of 2020 PeopleSmart has been busy rolling out impactful coaching, learning and development solutions across diverse sectors globally. I feel privileged we have achieved this, am proud of the teams’ performance, inspired by our partner’s support and extremely grateful for our client’s trust.

2021 is going to be an exciting year for PeopleSmart and we hope you will be part of it with us!

We are part of a growing community and continue to leverage knowledge, networks, research and relationships through our partnerships: BTN, Merit, Genos, FACET5, FBCCI, GEE

We create experiences & opportunities to collaborate for our clients and the broader community through PeopleSmart events: Leading in Times of Change, Insight Space, Appreciative Inquiry, Conversational Leadership.

We offer a broad, impactful range of digital virtual classroom services (Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3): our skilful facilitators can design and deliver inspirational virtual solutions in a multitude of languages.

We love the challenge of creating something special: designing & delivering virtual or face to face customized change, transformation & leadership development journeys in collaboration with our clients.

We contribute to meaningful causes: Mentoring @PN & Divershefy

We continue to build a truly digital, diverse and inclusive global community of consultants: understanding what it means to behave as and role model a high performing team virtually.

So, here’s wishing you all a prosperous and healthy 2021 – appreciating the beautiful things in life and not forgetting what we learnt from last year.
