We’ve worked with many leading public and private sector organisations, in the UK and internationally. Examples of just some of our clients are listed below.
What our clients say
Timing is everything! Having operated at a global leadership level for sometime, I wanted to identify how I could best capitalise on my strengths and continue developing my career at pace (which had been losing momentum of late). Marek showed real skill at getting to the core of what made me tick, what my USPs were and how the very behaviours that had brought me success to date could be overplayed. The DNA Leadership Assessment was both insightful and thought provoking, resulting in a renewed sense of clarity on what I needed to do to ensure continued success.
I’ve worked with Mike for over five years. He personally is exceptional in his specialist subject and able to take a brief and come back with a solution that adds real value at pace. The business enjoy working with him, HR teams gain lots of insights when he works with them. He is a stand out professional who makes a real difference when he gets involved. Personally Mike has worked for me on assessment design, implementation, creating competency frameworks, high-potential development programmes and resourcing.
When we needed to update and refresh our behavioural competencies for professional staff we chose to partner with MDV Consulting rather than a larger firm of business psychologists. MDV worked hard to understand our business and how to gain consensus in a partnerial culture. Having designed such frameworks in global big 4 firms we knew they could provide the technical rigour, but they also demonstrated a commercial pragmatism to our context and were easy to work with. They’ve added real value.
I have had the pleasure of working closely with Mike a number of times in very different sectors and environments and I am always impressed by his pace, energy, professional delivery and drive. He quickly assesses the client requirements, identifies critical issues and designs situation-appropriate solutions. Mike combines a refreshing breadth of insight on people and talent issues with a commercial pragmatism that has ensured the cultural fit and success of every project. He also has the rare talent of being able to quickly establish mutually respectful relationships with just about everyone, while being able to challenge and push the boundaries. Finally, people just enjoy working with him, which is why he’s always one of the first I’ll call in to help me deliver for my clients.
MDV’s ability to win confidence with our internal stakeholders, drive the momentum of an aggressive timescale and respond to real-life changing priorities, enabled the internal team to focus on their own jobs.
The Senior Leader Accelerated Transition Programme worked really well. Having this two months after taking the post really helped me to feel part of the wider organisation and to build relationships with new peers, as well as provide reflection time and opportunities to practice and get feedback on my own style and brand. Megan is an engaging facilitator, and a challenging and valuable coach. She managed the pace and engagement well, and her energy, enthusiasm and expertise ensured the development was fun, relevant and helpful.
Mike has designed and facilitated programmes for me over the past 8 years, at 3 different organisations and I have always been delighted. He always builds great rapport with delegates and makes sessions very engaging and enjoyable, whilst still managing to really push their learning. He consistently gets very strong feedback from our end of programmes reviews. I also find Mike really easy and flexible to work with. He has also pushed my own learning.
Working with the team means that you always get the best professional and thoughtful advice and a smile. I highly recommend working with MDV Consulting.
In all the interactions I have had with Megan, through executive coaching and facilitation, she is consistently excellent. She has a great style, which is a good balance of fun and challenge.
Insightful. Commercial. Focussed. Real partners who are in it to make a difference with you
I had the pleasure of collaborating with MDV Consulting on a competency modeling project for a leading law firm. Their approach was thoughtful, rooted in good science, efficient and responsive to the client. It’s rare to find a consultant who brings not only the technical skills and expertise to the table, but also a high level of emotional intelligence and sensitivity to the client’s needs. Our collaboration was a pleasure I will look forward to repeating.
Mike has been a trusted adviser / external partner bringing deep technical expertise ranging from adult development theory to the latest diagnostics. His advice is practical and thought-provoking and helps me to challenge my own thinking. I have observed Mike as a facilitator and received excellent feedback from the Directors he has worked with. He gives thoughtful, in the moment feedback, that has generated reflection from the group and he has built a strong rapport with a variety of stakeholders.
Working with MDV has allowed us to build a stronger, more tight knit senior management team. This programme has more than exceeded my expectations and we look forward to continue working with them.
I found this intervention very helpful and don’t really want it to end! The transition programme was really helpful with lots of take outs and light bulb moments for the longer term.
