Of course everyone has talent but the trick is in finding a job where professional competence can truly shine. It’s obvious when this magic has happened. The person is fulfilled, their performance is outstanding and their reputation with others is peerless. Then other organisations want to employ them! Nail them to the floor with golden nails or shower them in development? In truth: both.

Our talent development specialists understand talent because well, without being too humble about it, they themselves have been on those hallowed talent lists. They’ve enjoyed and endured both the blessing and curse that being so described confers. They will work with you to develop interventions that will ensure your most talented staff know you’re serious about them.
