Client Testimonials

“Evolution for Revolution are a recognised & influential preferred supplier after years of exemplary work with us. Both Helen & Debbie bring excellent thought leadership to the table on each of the many deliverables that they have been involved with, ensuring that solutions are future proofed as much as possible from the point of inception. If time, cost & quality are the primary business metrics used to measure effectiveness of a business partnership, then Evolution for Revolution consistently deliver on all 3. Over & above this they invest hugely in stakeholder management across all levels of the organisation throughout the duration of any deliverable, actively responding & reacting ‘fleet of foot’ to additional or new requirements that may surface along the way”.

“Between June 2007 and June 2009 I was accountable for the end-to-end delivery of all the training required for the integration of the Building Society business into the Bank environment. At the time this was the largest, highest priority, business transformation programme involving 3.8m customers with 6m accounts.

I was responsible for defining the strategy and leading the design, development and implementation of all training across the branch networks (19,900 staff), direct channels (4,335 staff), and back offices (672 staff), including new integrations-specific teams. Delivery of circa 11,000 days of training.

I hired Evolution for Revolution to help us with the back office and integration-specific training. This included:

  • Training Needs Analysis, Training design, development and implementation
  • Delivery of face to face sessions and all related materialLeadership training was also developed and delivered
  • Monitoring of the effectiveness of the training delivered, re-evaluating where necessary

Throughout this time, EfR built strong relationships with myself and my team as well as with our clients and proved to be key in the overall success of this workstream. EfR delivered on time, to budget and to a high quality.

This training received excellent feedback from senior stakeholders and I would have no hesitation in using EfR in the future.”

“During 2010 Debbie and her team at Evolution for Revolution assisted my business to draft and implement a significant training programme to compliment our transformational change programme. Working with the brief, Debbie and Helen brought expertise and focus: their team provided stretch and challenge to ensure we gained the right result for the business. Pragamatic and professional they were a great team to work with and are a business I have no reservation in recommending.”

Neil Gribbin
MD at Asprea


“I engaged Evolution for Revolution when our training needs were high and we lacked clarity on how to organise the activity, and prepare the training material for over 100 people to be trained against tight timeframes. Debbie, and her colleague Helen Worthy, provided real clarity and used their extensive knowledge to ensure everything was completed to plan. Excellent work and thoroughly recommended.”

Greg Gladwell
MD at Asprea


“Evolution for Revolution Ltd were engaged to support Asprea through a large transformation programme. Their design team, headed up by Debbie and Helen (Directors) were instrumental in our ability to deliver this. Through their collaborative engagement methods they ensured all of the Senior Leadership Team agreed with the strategic objectives of the programme and therefore the overall training requirements. Based on these outputs they then went on to liaise direct with the appointed SMEs and designed a very robust and bespoke induction programme. I would recommend them as a training provider”

Brian Moore
Head of Supply Chain and Procurement, Asprea


“I have worked with Debbie and Helen on a number of projects over several years and without exception have found them a pleasure to work with. They have always delivered a final training product that has more than met my expectations and that we have implemented across a very large business. I would have no hesitation in recommending them as an external training provider”

Vicki Howells
Learning Partner


“Helen helped in connecting a fresh team in a new business (at the time we were 5 months old) to define the service offering, USP’s and build a plan to work together as a cohesive and supportive team. One year on and we have just won an Award for 3rd Fastest Growing Office Supplies (sub £1m) company in the UK.”

“Since joining the AIS R2 Training Team in May this year, Debbie has made an immediate, positive and visible impact on the performance of the team as a whole. She has provided invaluable support, coaching and guidance to the team in the design and development of the training materials and her contribution is evidenced in the improved quality of the materials produced. As well as provide this invaluable support / coaching to the team, Debbie has also been involved in the actual design and development of some of the AIS modules, most notably the Intro to AIS e-learning solution – a very well-designed, user-friendly and informative module for which we have received extremely positive feedback. She designed this module having had minimal access to Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and minimal exposure to the actual AIS system, therefore adding to the achievement.

During her time at R&SA, Debbie has built up effective, open working relationships with colleagues within the Training Team, as well as with SMEs. Her manner is extremely professional, flexible and customer-focussed and she has delivered all key objectives to schedule. She is very proactive, challenges as appropriate and is also open to and receptive to feedback to ensure she provides the best solution / service to her client(s).

It has been a pleasure to have had Debbie as part of the AIS R2 Training Team and her contribution to the success of the team cannot be underestimated. I’m extremely pleased with the work that Debbie has done during her time with R&SA and I would like to thank her for her contribution to the team and the support that she has consistently shown me during her time with the team. It has been a pleasure to have had her in the team”

“Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed attending the TTT this week. Not only do I have great confidence that the material is the right thing for the BM audience, but I also learned so much from you, both through the feedback and by observing you in action. This has been the best development I have had as a trainer for a long time.

April Britton
Regional Trainer


“I found the format extremely helpful, it was especially beneficial to see the sessions brought to life by colleagues. Helen’s flexible and informal, yet structured approach worked very well and gave us the chance to experiment with ideas, try out the material and receive feedback. More of the same in future please.”

Sue Southcott
Regional Trainer


“I have really enjoyed working with you and have been impressed by the quality of the programme you designed and delivered.”

Eva Evers
Learning Partner


“You grasped quickly what needed doing, understood the different levels to operate at, was organised and planned (always a positive in my book!) and was very personable. I would not hesitate to recommend you.”

Kim Wrighton
HR Operational Change Manager


“I am just writing to thank you for the work you did for us recently with the packages training. I know that at times it was torturous as the proposition kept changing. You did a great job for us and I have been really pleased with how the final training booklets look and feel. Once again, many thanks, it was great working with you and I will recommend that we use you again in the future.”

Mike Hutton
Head of Trading


“I have really appreciated all of the hard work, commitment and effort you have put into delivering excellent Induction Training for our Corporate Support Teams, the feedback has been fantastic. Your training expertise proved invaluable when we were originally scoping out the training requirements and method of delivery. The CBT provides a simple and effective method of testing, training and accreditation to help our new recruits understand the technical aspects of their role. The challenges faced designing these modules should not be understated as what we had previously was so out of date. As well as providing interactive and measurable training it avoids the problems faced with errors due to the fact people had previously been trained by colleagues where there is always the danger of passing on bad habits.”

Jan Kirwan
Change Manager


“I appreciate the work you did pulling together the 3 day workshops and also your flexibility around the changes of dates, venues and location when Jonathan and I were having difficulty scheduling in meetings to meet our Teams requirements It has been an excellent experience working with you both, hopefully our paths may cross in the future.”

Jan Kirwan
Change Manager


“Excellent news, I was told today we were successful in the tender. A big thank you for your help on this – tremendous support in the circumstances – limited time and 2 separate law firms trying to appear to be one. You added a great deal of value and focus in helping us secure this work, many thanks”
