A message from Michael Fearnhead

The Future aka Managing Director


The needs of our clients have always been at the heart of what we do: from the expansion of our services and development of new and exciting products, through to really spending the time with our clients to understand their needs.  Everything we do has our client in mind and that’s why we can proudly say that 85% of our contracts are generated from repeat business.

“Kelly was sharp to the point and had a very pragmatic approach which helped me to “declutter” and properly refocus energy and time on the few key important things that really matter to be successful. This is true empowerment so let me thank you again for making this happen!”

Marie – Head of HR

“I have attended events ran by Kelly and found them interesting, informative and educational.  Kelly is passionate about business, training and people meeting their potential. She is an interesting, articulate speaker whose workshops are hugely enjoyable!”

Rachel – People Director

“I believe that workshops such as these are as relevant as those helping us with social media and building our businesses. As with everything, it¹s the holistic approach to life that generates the best people and ultimately the best businesses.”

James – HR Director

“I would not hesitate in recommending Kelly to others and believe that she has the ability to work with individuals at all levels to bring them on in their personal development. I will certainly be using her again in the future!”

Rachel – CEO

“The whole event was fun, soul searching and well worth attending.  I would highly recommend this to anyone, either professionals or not, as your delivery was really warm and welcoming and I feel would benefit the majority of HR Professionals struggling out there.”

Neil – HR Director

“Kelly is a unique combination of authority, innovative ideas and authenticity, always striving to get the best out of people and lead us onto new things but always with a refreshing business realism. I highly recommend Kelly and Chrysalis Consulting”
