Driving A Materplan For Future Growth

“Emmerson Kitney was at a critical crossroads, lacking true direction and grappling with market challenges. With a promising proposition but lacking unified team support, our path to success and consistent growth seemed unclear. Enter Lead Talent and Patrick. Their impact has been transformative.

Lead Talent didn’t just offer solutions; they facilitated a strategic masterplan, guiding us through market adaptation and crucially, aligning our leadership team. Their expertise became our compass, steering us towards success.

Through meticulous strategy development and implementation, Lead Talent has helped elevate us above the competition amidst ongoing industry turbulence. Their profound grasp of our sector and commitment to our success has made a huge impact.

For businesses seeking a true partner invested in their growth through delivery of a proven process Patrick and the Lead Talent team come highly recommended. Their invaluable counsel and commitment have been instrumental in our turnaround.”


David Kitney

CEO, Emmerson Kitney

An Entrepreneurial Mentor

“Patrick has been an invaluable business mentor. His support extends far beyond mere guidance; he’s been instrumental in shaping my leadership abilities, contributing significantly to my professional achievements.

Over the past seven years, I’ve had the privilege of maintaining a close professional relationship with Patrick as I navigated various leadership roles. His encouragement and unwavering support inspired me to take the leap into entrepreneurship last year.

With Patrick’s wisdom backing me, I established my own business, assembling a dedicated team and setting ambitious growth objectives.

Now, in partnership with Lead Talent, we’re actualising those plans that once resided solely in my mind. Patrick’s ongoing mentorship has empowered me to harness the collective expertise of Lead Talent, as we develop a robust strategy, align our team, and set the stage for sustainable growth over the next five years.

Patrick’s counsel really does transcend conventional mentorship; he’s become an integral part of our journey towards success, and for that, I’m immensely grateful.”

Building A Robust Strategy For Growth

“Since partnering with Lead Talent, AdBell has undergone a remarkable transformation. Under Patrick’s guidance, we’ve crafted a bold and ambitious vision for our business, underpinned by a robust strategy and detailed roadmap for execution.

The support from Lead Talent has been unwavering, ensuring that our strategy isn’t just a plan on paper but a driving force within our organisation. At every juncture, we’ve felt bolstered by their expertise and commitment.

Having previously worked with a Business Coach, who supported me at that particular stage of my personal leadership journey, I can attest that Lead Talent operates on an entirely different plane. The impact has been nothing short of transformative, not only for me but for our entire leadership team.

During our recent quarterly review, the progress we’ve made was evident and quantifiable. Armed with a clear plan for the upcoming quarter, we depart each meeting with a profound sense of commitment and support from Lead Talent on our journey.

For entrepreneurial businesses seeking genuine transformation and sustained growth, I wholeheartedly recommend Patrick and the Lead Talent team. Their impact really does transcend consultancy norms, they foster tangible results and a culture of success.”

Building The Business On A Solid Foundation Of Process and Knowledge

“I could quote some truly incredible financials but what is difficult to quantify is how much more soundly I sleep at night, knowing that we have built a solid foundation.
If you are a creative entrepreneurial leader, I cannot recommend Lead Talent enough!”

Mike Chester

Owner, CONKER Furniture

Profits x 4, MD On Business Not In Business

“When we first started working with Lead Talent, the business was ticking over and doing OK but wasn’t reaching its true potential.  What I really wanted was to build the business on a sustainable footing and develop the talent in the business from within to become the lead gaming Recrtuitment Agency in the UK.

Patrick really helped develop our plans, not only around what we needed to do but critically how we were going to do it and all of this took place against the challenging backdrop of a COVID-19 pandemic.

I have been so impressed with Patrick and the results we’ve experienced that I have already recommended them to another recruitment business where I know they can add significant value.

The best part of all (being a canny Yorkshireman) and particularly given these challenging times, was being able to secure match grant funding from Sheffield City Region Skills Bank to offset part of the investment.”

Ian Goodall

Managing Director, Aardvark Swift
