“Stan is forthright, determined and able to engage all stakeholders with respect and honesty to achieve the best outcomes for both the organisation as well as the employee. For the entire time Stan and I worked together (over 2 years), he has demonstrated incredible leadership qualities, and has a gravitas that quickly earns the trust of his clients. I have always been more than completely satisfied with his “best practice” yet practical approach to every situation, this ensures a “fit for purpose” outcome and the client feels that the tailored solution meets their expectations. I have come to value him as a confidant and mentor.” – Organisational Effectiveness Director – Imperial Group

“Stan and his team assisted our two large multinational corporates to merge into one new entity with an expanded mandate.  Both entities were diverse in its nature of business, are government owned and operate in the very demanding automotive environment – a challenging process was anticipated. Stan and the team went well beyond their mandate and had to very often respond to changes in plans and additional reporting deadlines with extremely short notice. Their team always conducted themselves professionally and understood the challenges that our environment brought. In so doing, we managed to focus on the key deliverable and successfully complete the project. – MD – AIDC Corporation

 “Stan worked with our company for three years and we engaged him for an average of 70 hours per month. Significant business challenges were being faced, leading to changes in both business direction and people employed at the Executive and Senior Levels. At times Stan “held the fort”! Stan is a man of integrity and served us with absolute commitment and passion. Our Executive team will remember his energy and that he could always be relied on as a sensible “sounding board” for Business and People challenges.” – MD – Cape Gate
