About Us

Background & Experience

  • Project . Process . People

    Our Philosophy To work with and support individuals to enable them to derive and implement solutions that work for them.

    We do this by tailoring packages to meet the needs of individuals, organisations and enterprises in which we work alongside people, through workshops, interviews, training, mentoring and coaching and where necessary direct intervention to achieve the desired outcome.

    Key to organisational success is the ability of an organisation to:

    • Determine their goals and communicate them effectively
    • Deliver their goals
    • Continuously improve the way in which they deliver
    • Develop their people to support this delivery

    To do this effectively Holden-Consult believe that is necessary to progress forward on Projects, Processes, and People in parallel and to be cognisant of the interaction between these three elements.

    We are particularly passionate about ensuring that innovation is alive and present in all areas of an organisation’s operation. We believe that the combination of Innovation and delivery is the route to total organisation engagement and success.
