“We were his first client and we’ve found him to be excellent; our team have bought into him and his calm but focussed demeanour have been a breath of fresh air in our boardroom (we’re not calm and we love going off on tangents!).

I’m sure it’s also not a coincidence that we’ve recorded 5 of our best ever 6 months this year!

His training sessions are highly engaging and have given us practical tools to help drive rigour, accountability and results across the business.

These are backed up with individual mentoring and coaching sessions that have ensured change has been implemented in the right way and managers are held accountable.”

Sachin Ruparelia – Managing Director Camino Partners

“Ashley is helping us put in place structure and rigour to the management of the business as well as developing the whole senior leadership team individually through training and coaching. The positive impact was quickly seen with record placements and sales following him working with us for only 2 months. I would recommend any recruitment business wanting to go to the next level having a chat with Ashley.”

Mike Williams – MD & Founder

“I’ve known Ashley professionally for over 10 years. His reputation has always preceded him as an influential leader. We have been working with Ash for 6 months building, developing and maintaining our ‘Future Leaders Programme’. This has been instrumental in creating depth across our senior leadership team. He is well regarded across our multiple brands and engages with all abilities and levels of capabilities. This maximises our results across the group including higher engagement and retention of key members of staff.”

Ashley Lawrence – Co Founder at SODA

“Ashley has been an amazing extension to the Broadgate Search team. He has provided excellent training and development to our managers and future managea within the business. I’d recommend him to other recruitment owners who are looking to scale and drive performance.”

Ben Adams – Co Founder at Broadgate Search

“I have worked with Ashley for the last 6 years. He has made a huge impact on our clients in the capacity of coach and mentor since launching ARPD.

He is unique in his approach because he can speak not only with authority on personal development but the niche markets we all work in. It makes for a powerful combination.

The industry needed someone like Ashley to step in and work with fast growth brands and people.”

Russell Bennett – Co-Founder at Recruiter Hub

“Ashley has been a tremendous help to our business. He has helped give our SMT the tools and experience they required to level up. This in turn has had a significant impact on our NFI per head. Billing managers now have the skills and ability to balance that difficult challenge we all face when moving through the recruitment ranks – How to keep the numbers consistent whilst building a team. He’s been a top addition to our external consultant team and I highly recommend him.”

Samm Green – Co-founder at Knowit

Knowit has been growing organically over the last 5 years, therefore we had senior consultants with little to no management experience. 6 months on, I’ve been nothing but impressed. He’s delivered a training programme that has helped our team develop and allowed us to scale faster than we anticipated. Ashley has a very considered approach to management training and tailored the sessions for our business to make sure he got the best out of the team. I can’t recommend him highly enough

Nick Charalambous – Co-founder at Knowit

“Having known Ashley for 10 years as a top flight Recruitment professional, it was very intriguing when he decided to become an Executive Coach. This intrigue persisted and assuring myself that I don’t know everything I decided to engage Ashley to provide some additional/external coaching for my Managers. And thank God I did – we have had 3 sessions now (1 day per month) and the results have been phenomenal. Each Manager has received bespoke coaching and all our KPI’s and crucially our billings have increased as a result. If you are looking to truly optimise your team’s performance, then I couldn’t recommend Ashley enough.”

Simon Taylor – Founder and CEO at 777 Group

“I’d strongly recommend Ashley as a leadership coach. He’s highly attentive and a great problem solver. I’ve really enjoyed working with Ashley and all the sage advice he’s given me in the last year.”

Raoul Tawadey CEO

“Working with Ashley is a real privilege and a relationship we are delighted to have started. I have been fortunate to work with Ashley previously and have seen first-hand the impact his coaching has had on staff and their self-belief. The members of staff at HMUK who have started working with Ash are certainly more motivated and confident in themselves already and we are delighted.”

Stuart McGregor – Fundraising and Partnerships Manager

“Ash was recommended to me from 2 different contacts, so I decided to find out more about him, even though I wasn’t really looking for a leadership trainer at the time. After meeting him, we decided to start working with Ash straight away and the impact on our business has been immediate, and enduring. Ash introduced many new ideas to our business and as a result we have changed our management processes and are making more revenue as a result, with more highly motivated managers and team members. Ash’s coaching style is very engaging, and most importantly of all, he ensures all material is followed up with clear action plans. He is able to train across a wide range of topics, and his extensive background in recruitment ensures that the material is very relevant”
