‘Having used PROPHET successfully at Brakes Group, I was confident that it had the commercial credibility and analytical rigour that would add value to the CEO and ExCom. We profiled the top 100 in our business and used the insight to develop continued effectiveness in ExCom and in all of the critical teams within our business. Both the Founder and the CEO have valued the intuitive insight and it has played a major part in helping promote business relationships, post a key acquisition. I am putting my HR team through accreditation and will continue to use PROPHET as a way of fast-tracking the on-boarding of senior people – as well as guiding decisions around the implementation of strategy, given the profile of our senior population.’
Tracy French, HR Director, Arrow Global Plc
‘We used PROPHET with our experienced Management Team of our London and South East Business. It helped a strong team develop new insights into each other and how they lead the business. We subsequently profiled 130 our senior managers and ran team effectiveness workshops at the conference. PROPHET was really well received. Its intuitive and commercial insight worked with our audience and we will be using it in our major projects to harness project team effectiveness and high performing business relationships. It is a really good business insight tool that combines development of people and relationships with meaningful commercial insight’
Amanda Ware, Senior HR Business Partner, Skanska
‘Our Senior team really values PROPHET. We initially explored the tool to assist with our effectiveness as a board team and subsequently profiled 320 people within our business in order to understand them better and how we could drive performance within the broader team.
PROPHET has been well received, with people really enjoying the pragmatic advice it provides with the analytical rigour to support this. The data pulled from the profiling provided us with remarkable insight into our business and our approach to key roles. Based on this knowledge, we devised a specific development plan that has had real traction in changing our approach to supporting key roles and making significant performance improvements. The initiative has been of great value.’
Kate Woodhouse, HR Director - Commercial & Central Functions, Brakes Group

‘PROPHET had been recommended by my Chair to help to drive team performance and collaboration across our senior team. Despite initial scepticism of how a profiling tool would help us, our team were impressed with the ease of use and the power of the solution. Both our Board and our MDs found the process enlightening and commercially applicable. Personally, I found the insight hugely helpful in my role as CEO and an effective tool in helping to get the best out of everyone in our senior team. ’

‘To predict future macro and commodity trends for Rio Tinto's strategy and investment process, I need my team of highly technical and analytical economists and markets specialists to form strong relationships across Rio Tinto’s global businesses. PROPHET's insight helps us collaborate better within the team and outside of it.

Vivek Tulpule, Chief Economist, Rio Tinto
‘Our Board has worked together for many years and we used PROPHET to refresh existing relationships and change the dynamics to create even higher performance. The Board now talk in the language of PROPHET to get the best out of each set of relationships and the Board as a whole.
Throughout our Group the insight has helped each individual. Most importantly, it gave us the insight into our people and our DNA to develop a commercial strategy that was achievable, given the personalities and preferences of our organisation. We really value PROPHET Profiling as our development partner and the commercial skills they bring to our business.’
Chris Liddle, Executive Chair, HLM Group
‘PROPHET has been a great investment. Our new European CEO wanted to focus the European businesses on aligning around the new strategy and developing high performing teams across the region. PROPHET is the enabler to do that. We initially profiled our ExCo and helped a team that has worked together for a while, re-set their relationships using the PROPHET insight. We ran team sessions with the wider leadership group and subsequently profiled our top 100.
PROPHET has added value for all our teams and executives. We have accredited the HR team to derive the maximum from the profiles and we are using it every day in our talent lifecycle, as well as using it for senior hires. We are looking to roll it out across the Global business. It is an exceptional new tool – business focused, intuitive and provides remarkable business insights of great financial value. It is a vital solution for HR Directors to work with their CEOs on how to implement strategy.’
Michael Carter, HR Director Europe, Assurant Inc.
‘I have valued PROPHET’s excellent insight to help develop executive team effectiveness.’
Chris Train, CEO, Cadent Gas
‘In running and advising many businesses throughout my career I’ve seen and used an array of profiling tools. PROPHET is at the top of that list, an amazing tool to put the team at immediate ease but yet highlight strengths and immediate areas for development. As applicable for high performing executive teams as functional and middle management groups irrespective of sector. I’ve had the benefits of it both in my business interests as well as my Foundation. I can’t recommend PROPHET highly enough.’
Iain MacRitchie, Entrepreneur, Former Chairman of the Institute for Turnaround
