Ian Thomson

Leadership: Coaching: Change Management: Project Management: Performance Improvement

With some 40 years of business experience and 25 years in learning and development, I have a broad spectrum of capability in a range of sectors.

Read More

Originally trained as a chartered accountant, I have worked in international business for many years before stepping out to run my own consulting business.I have worked in some 40 countries and understand culture very well – both national and organisational. I enjoy working with organisations and individuals to identify performance issues, create solutions and implement them in the organisation and in the classroom. My focus is constantly on what can work for the company and supporting the stakeholders in making successful change and delivering improvements to KPIs.

I believe in making the learning environment fun, building a good rapport with and tailoring material to meet individual needs. Learning is a partnership where I facilitate individuals to discover what they need specifically for their success and assist in finding solutions that work. I am highly process driven and use a variety of models to develop thinking around the issue, define what needs to change and then create the solutions that should make the change stick in the workplace. I am self-motivated, enthusiastic and a knowledgeable facilitator and consultant.

In the classroom I create an environment in which participants can experiment, take risks and enjoy the results. I use profiling to give impetus to thinking about strengths and weakness and create experiential learning events in which participants can truly understand what they need to work on. Learning needs now to work at the speed of business and be accessed as close to the workplace as possible – classroom is just one channel of delivery and I can develop blended solutions.
