“Over the past four years our growth as a company has been rapid with now some 14,000 employees based in 75 offices around the globe. As a highly technical company working around the globe, our success has been largely driven by the quality, commitment and performance of our people, many of whom have substantial post-graduate qualifications. Nearly five years ago we identified iSolon as the company we wanted to work with to provide us with a foundation framework of leadership and management skills. Our experience with John and his colleagues during that time has proved highly beneficial to over 500 of our most promising talents who have attended the development programs. We have been delighted with their service and continue to leverage their expertise.”
Klaas Wester, President and Chief Executive Officer, Fugro nv

“We approached John and his team to set up a tailor made program for our senior management in order to sharpen their ‘soft’ skills and get them acquainted with new aspects of leadership. John’s approach and realistic understanding of our industry’s training needs helped us to define the content for the course. When it came to the actual training, we were very taken by the approach, the personalities of both John and Nikki, their energy, subject matter expertise, life experience and sense of humour! They’ve given our people lots to chew on, think about and induct into their lives. A very worthwhile experience from start to finish. We plan to maintain our partnership with iSolon for the foreseeable future.”
Education Department, Van Oord nv

“I strongly believe the Convincing the Board program from iSolon to be a cornerstone for professional people’s development. The insights from the team at iSolon, folk who have ‘been there and done that’, add more weight and credibility than anything I’ve heard from Analysts and other professionals in the past. This is one of the main reasons I support this program. Feedback from colleagues who have also attended rate it as I do, and that is, its one of the best development and insightful programs we have experienced. The thing I really like is all the practical items that come from the program, items like the value of understanding and using the customer’s own business case templates and formats”

“I personally attended two iSolon workshops, both focused on leadership and strategy issues. These were in-house sessions and at the last one, John addressed the entire executive board, including both the CEO and CFO. Both sessions were challenging, effective and enjoyable.”

“In HP workforce development we have good training curricula. Our internal trainer resources are strengthened with some external, state of the art, training providers. For our EMEA Support Solution Architect [SSA] Advanced Development Program, we searched for someone, who really understands the “CXO’s” world from an outside of HP point of view. iSolon fully understood our needs and was able to put a training solution together to address those needs in a short time.

The class was very successfully delivered in Duesseldorf, Germany to an EMEA wide audience, which included seven nationalities, by two executive level instructors from iSolon. The content of this training, combined with the solid business knowledge and executive background of the iSolon instructors was very well perceived by our audience.

The iSolon training solution “Convincing the Board” is now one of the key elements in our SSA Advanced Development Program.”
Manfred Doering, EMEA HP-Services, Workforce Development

“Sincere thanks for the work you did with my team last week. Without exception, all the team thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. Your approach was spot on and the sessions proved to be successful. You questioned their motives and challenged them to consider their style and baggage. There was a very serious intent to this but you delivered this in a fun and interesting way. My key objective of getting the team to know each other and challenging complacency was most definitely fulfilled. My one concern of irritating the seasoned sales people with simplistic studies was completely unjustified.”
Sandi Beaumont, General Manager, BT
