About

Training sessions and one-to-one coaching are important tools for businesses, but we know that getting lasting behavioural change from this type of activity is not always straightforward. Often we wrongly assume that putting a group of employees through a workshop will automatically get the results we need. Employees can have a great time during the session, but unless you achieve the changes required from the training, it is merely a fun day out for your staff. This can be great for morale, but won’t help to sharpen your competitive edge as a business.

We’ve seen this time and time again, so we know how to get the results you need - without losing the fun. From start to finish, our approach, delivery styles, experience and expertise all mean that we offer a unique and tailored service; always ensuring we know your culture and the learning methods that suit you. On top of this, we understand the neuroscience behind behavioural change, so our results last.

With the added benefit of offering HR consultancy, we can help you create the right infrastructure to foster an effective learning culture.

Why we're different

Create Edge is co-owned by JDX, a global financial services provider and Times Fast Track 100 winner. We have worked closely with JDX to develop a highly effective Leadership Team and upskill the Directors, Managers and Consultants throughout the business. Employing some of the most recognised and skilled experts in the industry, as well as developing its own internal training academy, JDX is a perfect partner to Create Edge.

With such a rich pool of expertise at our fingertips, we are able to go way above and beyond the level of support normally offered by a training and coaching company. We understand about growing and diversifying businesses and can offer some of the best mentor support should our clients require it.

What our clients think

“Sarah has made a great difference to the leadership team of JDX. It is the combination of her understanding of neuroscience together with known leadership principles which differentiates her from other coaches. Since Sarah’s evolvement with JDX, we have seen a huge change in the way that senior people interact, and this has led to much stronger goal congruence than we had before.”

JONATHAN DAVIES, FOUNDER & PRESIDENT , JDX

“Off the back of Sarah's insights and recommendations we have restructured our business, and retrained/developed more of our people in the past 12 months than ever before! We are more efficient; employee engagement has drastically increased and the commercial knock on effects are amazing. The team, who have worked across many large agencies world-wide have said that Sarah's sessions have had the most impact on them both personally and professionally by a mile!”
