Let us help grow your pool of talent...

Each week we meet more groups of individuals who really surprise us. They surprise us, but more importantly they surprise themselves. Skills and abilities that have lay undiscovered or certainly under-utilised are suddenly found and nurtured. The results are fantastic and give people the confidence to grow and become real assets to their companies. 


Kent Blaxill is one of the largest and oldest independent builders’ merchants and suppliers in East Anglia. Over the past 176 years, they have built up a reputation for delivering a professional service, expert industry knowledge and quality building supplies you can trust. Reed Consultants are delighted that five managers have met all of the requirements set by their HR Director, Institute of Builders Merchants and the course administrators, to be individually awarded IoBM Certificates.

A unique service provided by Reed Consultants is the Pick & Mix approach. Clients create their own personal programmes to be completed within an agreed timeframe. Any modules from the Reed portfolio can be combined with the resulting programme having its own bespoke branding and content, exclusive to your company. Kent Blaxill opted for this approach when designing their programme combining elements from Management Essentials and Uncover the Leader in You. This was a great success. Click on the video below to listen to what delegates had to say.

Management Essentials is a nine-month programme aimed at managers who have a minimum of six months’ experience and who are moving into a senior management or a leadership role.

Uncover the Leader in You, is for those people who have been identified as potential leaders of the future and who require a development programme to support their career aspirations.

The Rising Stars twelve-month programme is for internal colleagues who have been
identified by the senior management team to have the potential to be future
supervisors and or team leaders

Well done to all and I look forward to following the success of all concerned

Jim Collins, Institute of Builders Merchant Governor.

One of Britain’s leading merchants, Howarth Timber, recently conducted a transformation of their National Sales function. As a result they required a sustainable development programme for their annual Graduate Sales intake as well as their External Sales teams. It was essential that the programme was bespoke and designed with specific industry knowledge. The programme has been running for two consecutive years with Joshua Chaplin winning BESMA Rising Star of the Year Award in year two. Read more...

A great day at the Graduate Development/Sales Programme which allowed the three individuals to showcase their amazing commercial achievements
