"Gill was excellent at helping us to raise awareness of the issues that needed to be addressed. From this she enabled us to create a plan and gain the necessary buy-in to implement changes that stood the test of time."

The client:

EDS, an outsourced services provider, now part of global information technology company Hewlett Packard.

 What we created:

Gill worked with the sales account leadership team, the overall account team and their client organisation by facilitating a range of different workshops over a number of months to surface issues and create solutions, resulting in measurable financial improvement. She added value by putting the account leadership team and the customer in the same room to share perceptions of each other and initiate joint problem-solving, leading to a bespoke implementation path.

 The client prompt:

A call centre and associated order fulfilment processes which were being operated for the client organisation were failing to hit profit targets, the staff were demoralised and the client was extremely unhappy.
