Diving into the Managing Excellence Programme with James Gage in March '23 was a game-changer for me. The well-crafted course and James' insightful coaching have been like a guiding light, helping me evolve into the leader I always envisioned. It's been a path marked by exceptional structure, wise guidance, and a seemingly bottomless well of knowledge for anyone on their management voyage. A huge shout-out and heartfelt thanks to James and the NorthStar team – your support has been invaluable. I'm incredibly grateful! 🌟🚀🌌

Following on from a session with NorthStar People, we went through a client segmentation workshop with our team. There were wonderful 'light bulb' moments when we went through the process as consultants realised who and what their clients are. Many thanks for the inspiration!

We engaged Paul & the team at NorthStar People as our business had hit somewhat of a growth impasse. We were stuck in the weeds, doing great work for customers but unsure of how to come up properly for air and work on what really matters. From the word go Paul helped us simplify our objectives and somehow (I honestly couldn’t tell you how) has freed time up for everyone in leadership roles to guide the business into a really positive direction. Fast forward 9 months and this is the most excited I’ve been about trg in 18 years. The proof is in the pudding and Paul walked that pudding through the door on Day 1 I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend NorthStar People to any recruitment leader with any offering in any sector. In fact, I’d urge you to engage them!

Paul was recommended to us when we were looking for help scaling our business. Honestly I didn't know what to expect, but my word has he has been transformative for us! He supports and challenges us in equal measure, thus keeping us honest and encouraged. Paul has helped us get our heads above the clouds and see things clearly. He's always available for us and each session we have with him is interesting and I feel like I learn each time. I can't speak more highly of his experience, knowledge and most importantly his character. I look forward to continuing our relationship and I'm keen to see his and Northstar's future success.

I worked with Miles before when I owned a recruitment company called MYNT Recruitment. He is a very personable, patient and experienced consultant, who cam up with great ideas to take my business to the next steps. Miles is not afraid to give uncomfortable feedback and solutions to problems and then chase up actions. All in all I couldn't recommend him more highly. The ROI is definitely worth it.

I launched my business in the back end of 2021 after a very successful career in recruitment. Upon launch, we had started to see real success, but what was starting to unravel was the lack of infrastructure and depth of understanding to take our growth to the next level. Enter Paul Sharpe… Paul is quite simply the best thing I’ve ever had walk into my professional career. His experience in leading a business is quite simply outstanding. He quickly deep dived into my business and pulled it apart (for the good I might add) and showed me exactly what WE needed to do to grow at pace. We’ve since implemented a clear 3 year strategy that didn’t just focus on the business he focussed on what is at the heart of any successful business - its people. Literally, someone I trust whole heartedly and not a person I recommend higher.

Paul has been absolutely fantastic In helping us level up our business, find direction and put in growth plans for future success. Every meeting with Paul feels like one of the most important of that year, where we can soundboard ideas, put in initiatives and get truly excited about our business and where we’re going! Couldn’t recommend enough to any business owner looking for direction and help in growth and strategic planning.

I have been working with Paul for the last few months as a business coach and mentor as he helps me with the gaps in my understanding of the processes of running a start-up recruitment business. His industry experience and knowledge is vast and he shares it all generously with an authentic, genuinely caring and empathic approach. He’s also brilliantly honest, with a great sense of humour, which makes his delivery of the firm strategic nudges to challenge and enable me the opportunity to grow my business all the more effective! I would highly recommend Paul; his support and validation have already been invaluable and I look forward to continuing to work with him to develop my business into the future.
