Antony has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to quickly grasp the big picture of an organization and to identify and bring out the potential of all the individuals who eventually enjoyed being part of winning teams. This in turn assisted to plan and implement large organizational and cultural changes. In all of the above, results were exceptional and far exceeded any targets.

During the one day SLII workshop, we were also very pleased to experience the structured and powerful way the SLII concept was presented by Antony. He is a truly skilled presenter, with an immense impact on the audience.” Sony, Corporate Business Development Director – “Antony is an experienced leadership coach, trainer and consultant with a knack of bridging the gap between theory and practice. His ability to adapt solutions to the specific context of the client is what makes his contributions extremely valuable.” The Hub Power Co, Corporate Head of HR & Admin “... The most significant force Antony triggered in our company was the belief that anything was possible. In his first days, he faced a big mess and a bunch of sarcastic, disillusioned people who did not believe the company had any future ahead. Yet, somehow, Antony had already seen that future and through a rigorous process of interviews, coaching sessions, consulting, situational leadership workshops, and sharing of his own experience, he convinced enough people it is worth working toward… Antony's involvement had a significant impact on our way of working and business results in two other areas - on the one hand, understanding our customers and their needs and meeting them more efficiently and beyond expectation, and on the other - understanding our employees' professional aspirations and creating an environment where they could realize them in line with the strategic goals of the company.“ Seerc, General Manager Analytics and Modelling
