“Sue has worked with me now for over four years as an outstanding associate, mainly delivering C Suite assessments of shortlist candidates for roles in the UK and US such as CEO, CFO, Chief Risk Officer, etc. I say outstanding for three reasons; First Sue is a highly expert professional psychologist and undertakes her work to the highest standards. Second Sue consistently seeks to understand and deliver what clients need – including delivering to very tight timescales, even when these interfere with her personal life at times. Third Sue is totally trustworthy – with my reputation with clients, and if she says she will deliver – she always does.”

“Sue helped us design a performance management framework forming part of our service offering to veterinary practices. Under the banner of employee engagement, she designed a job family modelling career structure which included a competency framework for each practice to bespoke to suit their own needs. She also created a toolkit for marketing purposes in helping sell the concept to our clients. We worked with Sue over a four month period, during which she created all the materials in detail for our approval. Her vision of what we were trying to achieve was totally aligned with our own thinking, but she was able to bring expertise and knowledge outside our own. Her style is collaborative and consensual without being over bearing or cumbersome. We mostly left her to work alone but the result was highly welcomed by our team of business consultants. She shows passion and enthusiasm for the work required and delivers results on time and to a high standard. I have no hesitation in recommending Sue.”

“I can thoroughly recommend Sue Colton for her work in undertaking a staff survey for one of my clients, Bird College, based in Sidcup, Kent. In conjunction with the senior management team, Sue drew up appropriate questions for the survey, analysed the responses and produced a detailed report which conveyed clearly the strengths and areas of improvement plus recommendations for action. A great piece of work and much appreciated by the College! Thank you Sue!”

“I have worked with Sue several times, as a colleague and as a service provider in my current business and during my time at Gatenby Sanderson. She is a consummate professional from start to finish. Most impressively, she is always proactive, well-prepared and very responsive to the changing demands of complex projects. Sue is also a really delightful person to have around – upbeat, considerate and full of great ideas. I always enjoy her company when we work together – a real treat.”

“Sue has worked with me in different roles over a number of years. She is an expert in HR, assessment and development of people. Above all she is extremely professional, very personable and one of the best and most effective managers of projects/assignments I’ve come across. Her attention to detail and methodical approach is outstanding – the ultimate “Completer Finisher” in a profession that can often be fluffy and lacking direction.”
Gary Storer

Director, Enterprise Learning Ltd

“have had the pleasure to have known Sue for 10 years and have undertaken project work with her, benefitting from the blend of her excellent HR consultancy knowledge with my L&D background. Sue is considered and thorough, offering practical client-centred solutions and has particular expertise around competency frameworks, job families, job definitions and performance and reward strategies; she is flexible in her approach and always focused on delivering the right solution for her clients. I also have experience of being coached by Sue and find her warm and engaging questioning style a great help in teasing out the right decisions and answers. I would definitely recommend Sue in either capacity.”
Sarah Cooper

Director, The Development Garden

“I cannot recommend Sue highly enough! We have worked together in a number of organisations designing and implementing key projects to deliver clear transparency and measurables to organisations going through change/transformation. These projects included – Employee Engagement, Setting up Technical Frameworks, building Performance management systems and Cultural Change programmes.”
