What Our Clients Say

"OmiliaHirst worked with us in crafting our Brand Values and bringing them alive in a meaningful way for the organisation. They managed a highly complex piece of work with admirable skill bringing together everyone from the Directors to the front line staff. Making brand values understood, have meaning, translating them into the substrata of all business activities and teasing out the issues was accomplished masterfully. It was a quality piece of work delivered to time and budget. I would have no hesitation in recommending OmiliaHirst."

Project Sponsor, Birmingham Midshires

"I had the pleasure of working extensively with OmiliaHirst in 2007 and 2008 at time of great change in our organisation. What particularly stood out was their ability to address a challenging organisational situation, break down the complexity into a number of simple and manageable issues which we could then address together in a systematic way. Their ability to think broadly about a situation and embrace complexity and ambiguity, together with their ability to build relationships throughout the organisation meant that through our work together we were able to influence organisational change."

Head of Learning, RBS Global Banking and Markets

"I have worked with Sheila Hirst and Domna Lazidou in a number of major organisations, where they have been selected to carry out major change work. Most significantly they worked with us as part of the Internal Communication team at Asda, where they were hugely successful at introducing significantly new ways of working across the multi-site business, getting buy in from the executive team down, to support change. They achieved that through their ability to translate complex and multilayered business communication requirements into simple, straightforward, workable solutions that got the support of colleagues and managers alike. I like the way the team work, with energy and pace, always able to generate dialogue with whatever group of stakeholders they work with, to move the subject matter forward. As a consequence, I have repeatedly utilised their expertise in a further three organisations since, to support a range of change initiatives."
