My fellow Directors and I feel that the ChangeKey Partnership made a real and professional contribution to the success of the change we undertook, and I have no hesitation in recommending Jeff and his Company in assisting other organisations planning major change
Testimonial for the ChangeKey Partnership with regard to the provision of ‘Change Management' support,
facilitation and training services to Ashfield Homes Ltd.
Over the previous five years, I, as the Chief Executive of Ashfield Homes Ltd, and prior to the "change", as Director of Housing for Ashfield District Council, have used the services of the ChangeKey Partnership to assist us in the development of our staff and in the management of change.
The major change that ChangeKey and, in particular, Jeff Priestley, assisted the organisation with was its transition to an Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO), set up to manage, repair and modernise the housing stock belonging to Ashfield District Council.
Jeff successfully provided a combination of change management services, including: Senior Management consultation and problem solving facilitation; team and change development workshops at all levels in the new organisation; assistance in the selection of key individuals at Board level; and the coaching and mentoring of staff, assisting us to resolve personnel issues created as a result of the organisation changes and redeployment.
Ashfield Homes Ltd was the highest performing Company out of the 35 ALMOs now established. The morale and professionalism of the organisation is judged independently as extremely high, and we now employ around 200 staff and manage annual revenue budgets in excess of £10 million.
My fellow Directors and I feel that the ChangeKey Partnership made a real and professional contribution to the success of the change we undertook, and I have no hesitation in recommending Jeff and his Company in assisting other organisations planning major change.
The most delightful, genuine, honest and altogether helpful team
I am particularly grateful for your help in enabling me to articulate my skills and abilities and present these to people coherently. "Andrew"
They put us on the right path and we have never looked back

I often think back to our sessions and am grateful for the time you spent discussing things and challenging me. It's been as helpful outside of work as in.
I now feel I can confidently manage. I will also get paid what I deserve, and have some great career opportunities in front of me...
The professional and confidential nature of the service and after care offered by Jeff and his colleagues is exemplary and I would have no hesitation in recommending him as an Executive Coach.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Jeff as an Executive Coach and, in fact, have recommended him to members of my own family.
Lyn, can I say...what an amazing job you do. I don't know exactly what you saw in me but your intuition was certainly right...I am an estate agent!
What impresses me greatly is the personalised service which is offered by the Change Key Partnership. I felt that I was treated as a person, not as an object to be processed and pushed out of the door to make way for the next client.
A visit to ChangeKey is a sure-fire and extremely cost effective way of focusing your skills and realising your dreams.
The psychometric tests helped me understand myself and gave me confidence to pursue a new career direction and invest in the retraining required
Jeff helped me to improve my interview and presentation techniques, so that by the time I had my first job interview, I felt prepared and confident.
Steve and Berta who had worked in the IT sector approached Changekey with the aim of identifying their career passion and both undertook our Career Transition Programme to move their careers further on.
I have known Lyn for a number of years. She is without doubt a very caring person, who genuinely wants the best for her clients. What strikes me about Lyn is her listening skills and ability to empathise with clients.
