From our CEO

January 2019

Dear all,

Chris Pethers

2018 has been a fabulous year for PeopleSmart and I would like to thank everybody who contributed – the consultants who ensure our solutions exceed expectations, the project managers who work seamlessly to align often changing variables, our partners who collaborate with us to launch new projects, our suppliers who advise on best approaches and our clients who trust us to design and deliver our services in a way which is always a meaningful learning experience. We are proud to be working for such a diverse group of client companies and being able to contribute to the success of their talent and leadership populations.

2019 is looking to be as exciting. PeopleSmart will be sponsoring learning events in Vienna, Paris, Mumbai, Amsterdam, Malta and London. After a positive experience in Amsterdam at the Unleashing Change conference last year PeopleSmart is set to chair, present case studies, run master classes and facilitate debates on a range of different topics related to culture, leadership or change. We are launching new projects for new clients on driving change, cross cultural competence and mentoring in the steel, financial services and international agency sectors. Coaching, change management, team effectiveness, project leadership, new manager workshops continue to be popular needs. Innovative assessment and development events remain a core part of the services for larger clients recruiting new talent or supporting leaders to step up to broader leadership roles. We will as ever strive to co-design, co-develop and co-deliver our solutions in partnership with our clients.

Finally we are delighted to officially launch the new PeopleSmart logo. It reflects that people are the core of what we do in a way that is smart, bold, modern and innovative.

It only remains for me to say have a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019!
