“When looking for advice on who could help to recruit a Senior Manager for our engineering business we immediately picked up the phone to Rachel at US2U Consulting for a recommendation but were delighted she accepted the challenge for herself. Having worked with US2U Consulting for training programmes at various times since the inception of US2U we knew it would be an education!

"Rachel's immense positivity and organisation skills took us through the recruitment process with military precision - from advert to candidate reviews, interviews and psychometric testing, whilst making it fun and keeping the two of us involved in the recruitment process on the straight and narrow regarding what we needed to achieve and when. Working with Rachel and her team on this project provided us with additional process skills to use across the business to enhance our recruiting & interview techniques. As always it was a joy to work with US2U Consulting."
General Manager Boniface Engineering

"US2U Consulting has worked with us on our third Leadership Programme; as we have come to expect from Rachel, she has successfully coached a new cohort and enabled them to engage and lead people to great effect. Rachel has an enthusiastic coaching style and undoubted business expertise; she has handled our LP during the Covid pandemic with aplomb and kept everyone fully engaged whether appearing in person or virtually."

"My online coaching programme via Zoom has been an inspirational journey. During the sessions I learnt several frameworks to help me develop my leadership, management and influencing skills. I was also able to view situations through the lens of the employer as well as employee. My US2U Consulting Business Coach was always well prepared and tailored each session to include relevant management models in line with my needs."

"ASAMS is very aware of the issue of mental health and decided to address this with a two day 'Mental Health and Stress Awareness Programme' for all employees, organised by US2U Consulting. I am proud to say that this has now been completed and was an outstanding success. The main aim was to provide support and guidance to managers and staff when working with colleagues, which could also be beneficial to the wellbeing of friends and family. A very well done to all involved."

We plan to use their recruitment services again in the future and would recommend these to other companies looking for this type of business support."

When asked at short notice for assistance they were responsive, professional and helpful in supporting PCME. US2U Consulting's services have helped guide the Senior Leadership Team with the latest phase of our company's strategic HR development.

The Talent Team Company based in Media City, Dubai
"I initially came across Rachel and US2U Consulting with my previous employer, Harrod UK Ltd; who have had tremendous success in implementing coaching across the company. The quality of information and wealth of experience in the area of coaching was second to none, and I very quickly incorporated the concept into daily meetings and staff appraisals. I even found that I could approach directors with confidence to coach them too! I have since changed jobs (not as a result of the upwards coaching!) and mentioned US2U Consulting to the directors and we are now looking to see how US2U Consulting can work for us, not just for coaching but for sales training too. As a result of the first class training, I approach everything with a coaching attitude. "How have we done? What can we do better? And what can we do, collectively, to get there?"

This meant everything was done for us with no hassle or fuss, making it a simple and efficient process for our people. Those who attended the sessions found our consultant to be an attentive and patient instructor who explained things clearly and answered questions in a helpful manner. They found the sessions very useful and said that what they had learnt would speed up their day-to-day processes. I would highly recommend US2U Consulting for IT training."

"I believe our Team Resilience day was a success and we got more from the activities than I had hoped for. The day had a lot of energy and whilst on the surface it may have looked like we spent the day with Play-Doh and marbles, some serious issues were tabled and worked on as a team with each of the team making a personal commitment to put in place a personal action plan to work on certain topics."
General Manager Alstom Power

Director ABC Taxis
HR Director and CEO
"We have spent a lot of time developing our managers with 360 feedback and career coaching. We often look back and can't believe how different it feels here now. People are treated like adults, and when a problem occurs, more often than not, staff will get together to discuss what's going on and how they can solve it, rather than running to their manager for help. This means that it is a good place to work and that has given us commercial advantage with our customers as we demonstrate passion for our job roles, products and customers. US2U Consulting have played an active role in supporting these initiatives and the culture change."
HR Director and CEO Worldwide Fruit
"US2U Consulting have supported us with the development of our long term business strategy.

Chairman Blue Sky Leisure

“US2U Consulting have done a great job in delivering an integrated Management Development Programme for our business. This has enabled us to develop the approach of various functions and people across the company. In particular we have focussed on improving our Product Development Processes to ensure that we continue to provide highly competitive world class products and services to our customers around the globe.”
Chief Executive Officer Michell Instruments
“Many thanks for your help and support throughout the process of recruiting the Buildings Manager.  The College community is delighted with the result and consider that we have broken new ground in the way that we recruit key members of staff.

"US2U worked with Bespak to design and deliver a Team Coach Development programme - a bespoke course designed to enhance the skills of a group of first stage line managers. The delegates benefited from a good balance of both theoretical and practical management techniques and had an excellent opportunity to mix with a wide range of colleagues to share their experience and gain input from both Rachel and senior managers within the business who became involved with the sessions. I was pleased to see that the topics covered were tailored to our business which ensured the content was both relevant and valuable for the delegates. The feedback from both managers and delegates has been excellent and I would certainly look to work with US2U to run a similar course in the future"

"I have used some of the skills discussed and feel that I am now a better, more productive, person, I am building on my own confidence. Because I am not spending so much time making everything perfect, I am no longer wearing blinkers. There is a lot going on around that I have not had time to notice before. The programme has boosted me in so many ways I now think about things differently.”
Programme Delegate Havering College of Further and Higher Education
Head of HR
"Without exception those involved in the programme can see an improvement in the confidence of delegates. Another big win is the fact that this programme has facilitated in breaking down some of the barriers we have across departments, as delegates met colleagues they would not normally work with and have now built up a rapport they would not have had.”
