'Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago'

You'll have noticed that we've changed our name after 15 successful years as Results Search & Selection and some of you may be wondering why? In a nutshell, we wanted to represent what we do more accurately i.e. having a well established coaching & mentoring practice in addition to the original executive search business. More importantly though, it sums up why we do what we love doing ; helping people and organisations get great results in whatever shape or form that takes.

When I was looking for a suitable quote to represent the name change, I came across one from Warren Buffett - a man who knows a thing or two about change and getting results. What struck me was that it suggested something I've long believed in; namely that investing in people may not always give an immediate return, (althought it quite often does!), but always provides an opportunity to leave a lasting legacy that both individuals and organisations can benefit from. 

As I look back at the past 15 years, I'm reminded of the people who 'planted a tree for me' along the way (you know who you are!) and I send heartfelt thanks for giving me and the team at Results for People a chance to 'sit in the shade'. Not that we'll be there for long as there's lots going on and an exciting future ahead!

If you'd like to have an informal chat about any aspect of how we can help you get great results, I'd love to talk to you and can be reached on 07818 077560 or via email initially at
