"Insight to Influence is one of the most hardworking and responsive consultancy firms that I have ever encountered. The transparent communication and ability to pivot quickly resulted in an excellent collaboration between our teams. Insight to Influence maintained focus on the purpose of the work and, when suggestions were made by our team, the consultants either took them on board or provided valid reasoning behind why we needed to stand by their recommendation. The culture assessment showed us a very clear picture of our business and what we need to do to transform and meet our objectives. EDC continues to engage and gain value from working with Insight to Influence on our improvement journey and I have no hesitation in recommending the team to other organizations"

"Karen successfully completed a whole of organisation capacity – culture, resources, business systems and processes - review against strategy for Family Life, to help us set our business transformation priorities and map out the journey we needed to take. We found that Karen brings her whole self to a project, seeking to engage the people, understand the issues and draw in from her extensive knowledge and resources to enable solution finding and strategy for implementation for results. Internal feedback was very affirming that even for those most challenged by the project, Karen was able to bring them on board and set us up for success. I look forward to further opportunities to work together."

"Emee's coaching enabled me to articulate my goals and to develop practical action plans to achieve my objectives. At all times I felt I could trust Emee and was able to frankly discuss my concerns with her. She quickly understood the challenges and context of my role. Although the exercises and materials in the leadership program were interesting and useful, it was the individual sessions with Emee that really enabled me to reflect on my aspirations and capabilities. One of her most valuable contributions to my development was the insightful feedback she gave me subsequent to meetings she attended with me and my managers. These meetings were important in terms of discussing my goals and gaining support from my managers. Emee's involvement gave me confidence and ensured the meetings were effective. I looked forward to our coaching sessions and am motivated to continue working to the plan she helped me devise."

"Insight to Influence were engaged to provide a clear roadmap of change management interventions and activities to support the Department of Justice and Attorney-General transition a new service delivery model into the business. They worked with the project board to agree the Vision and key objectives of the project and delivered a very comprehensive Strategic Change Management Plan outlining a clear path for change activities, and identified key change risks. This is an excellent resource and reference that has been, and still is being, used to inform change activities. They have completed change readiness and risk profile reports, provided one-on-one coaching and worked more broadly with different stakeholders to assist them to understand their leadership role in change, completed a training needs analysis and provided ongoing expert advice regarding change interventions. They have also developed, and will deliver, tailored change learning modules considering themes that emerged from coaching and the working context for stakeholders. I found them to be very responsive, always met agreed deadlines and were flexible in responding to the changing needs of the project."

Dawn Morris

"We conducted a series of studies to determine customer satisfaction by market segment, size and region. As the study repeated, the positive effects of the improvement initiatives taken were quantitatively measured. Overall the effect of the systematic quantitative and qualitative approach has brought rigor to an area that for too long has been managed by opinions."

Legacy Conversations "The two biggest things are to actually think about what I am feeling and not intellectualise everything. The second part of that is to actually do the analysis of what I am feeling and why. Becoming more aware of that has been a real growth journey. I had a few of those 'ah ah' moments and it's really been quite enlightening."

General Manager
