Testimonials

“I couldn’t commend Anne (Isaacs) and her colleagues more highly in helping people like me make that difficult transition. They are a star team and definitely punch well above their weight.” Marc Wolman, Business Transformation Director
“Executive Action is the best in the business.” Jamie Buchan, CEO
“I received an excellent service from (Executive Action) that was tailored exactly to my needs. Going for a cheaper, one size fits all “sheep dip” package, in my view…would be simply penny wise and pound foolish, as it will not properly meet the needs of many of those leaving. I can personally testify that Executive Action offer the kind of service many of my ex-senior civil service colleagues will require.” Simon Oakes, Senior Civil Servant
“Heather (Greatrex) asked clever probing questions that very much prepared me for the unexpected, and helped me to build the criteria to assess opportunities. Alongside ‘good chemistry’ there was ‘great challenge’.” Bernard Galton, Director General Welsh Government/NHS Wales
