It goes without saying that 2020 has not been the year we expected it to be, however as we arrive at our 3rd Birthday we are hugely proud of the momentum we have maintained by supporting our clients navigate their toughest challenges virtually.
In what’s turning into an annual ritual for us, instead of Birthday cards, we asked just a few of our recent clients if they’d like to pen a few words for us to share… we are so grateful and pleased to share:
Just some of the gifts we’ve received…
Tim and Christina gave us the confidence to push ahead with our Purpose, Vision and Strategy work during lockdown. Not only did we achieve what we set out to achieve but we are now using the great tools and techniques used during our remote sessions as part of building our high performing leadership team.

Working with the Up Company enabled me to bring together three disparate teams. The hard side outputs and soft side team bonding created, enabled my leadership team to deliver 168% of our annual CAPEX target, ensuring the overall companywide investment plan was recovered and met in a regulated industry.
Tim and Christina are friendly, professional, creative, very capable, super organised and take the lead enabling you to be present and fully immersed in the activities and actively participate in the exercises. A joy to work with.
The time and investment with the UP company was extremely beneficial. Over the course of 2 to 3 interventions they helped me accelerate the journey towards a high-performance team, distil our purpose and priorities for the next 3 years as well as organise and facilitate a launch event for my extended leadership team. They certainly helped me set my team up for success.
A mission critical investment programme was failing due to a three-way relationship breakdown between the client and two key suppliers. A springboard event facilitated by the Up Company enabled a lot of grievances to be aired, shared and fixed. Morale and performance was massively improved as a result.
Tim & Christina are not afraid to ask the difficult questions, they get you to really reflect, think, enable those lightbulb moments. The Up Company has enabled us to understand the purpose behind our HR transformation, why, what and how. Through their facilitation we have built trust and truly connected (virtually) as a Global HR team.

Working with Christina and Tim provided us with a safe environment in which to explore different strategic options and develop a much better understanding of each of us as individuals, so that we could work much more effectively as a unified team. Expect to have a challenging, hardworking, thought provoking couple of days, but also expect to have some fun, and to come away as a stronger team with a clear direction and plan.
Tim and Christina help you to explore who you are as a person as well as who you want to become as a leader within your industry, working with the UP company has helped me to become a more authentic leader who can recognise my development areas and utilise my strengths.
