“ We engaged People NZ to help develop a strategy to deliver upon our stated mandate for growth. Their facilitated engagement has enabled a deep level of clarity that has been instrumental in developing a framework to prioritise and execute programmes of work to achieve our goals. Their service is highly professional yet personal, they are experienced business people wo have been there and done it, therefore their understanding of the realities that challenge business owners and managers is acute. They bring a supportive positivity to all their engagement, even when challenging me to look beyond the obvious or to be more honest and apply a deeper level of introspection. I have personally learnt and grown as a General Manager through working with Bruce and the People NZ team. ”
