team & partnerships

high challenge with high support

the team’s experience

We have worked with a wide variety of client organisations across many different industries around the world. 

That global reach has given us the privilege of working with and understanding different regional cultures and the impact they have on organisational dynamics.

Our work in different sectors: commercial, public and not-for-profit, has given us an appreciation of different organisational priorities while recognising underpinning principles common to all.

We have supported the development of management skills and leadership skills at all levels from first line to CEO and supported them in addressing a wide range of strategic, functional and operational issues.

We are specialists in behavioural change and the development of leadership skills and our wide experience of organisation development has enabled us to support projects in business transformation, change management and employee engagement.

Our HR/L&D expertise has proved valuable in working with clients to help them shape their HR/L&D strategy, bringing ideas and fresh thinking from our experience worldwide and exposure to current trends.

We have all worked at senior level ourselves, in operational or HR/L&D roles, and are able to bring sessions to life by sharing relatable examples from our own experience where appropriate.

Experienced, innovative and highly skilled facilitators and coaches, the dolphinblue team are able to consistently deliver the design, management and implementation of change and creative development in all situations.
