Managing People and Performance

What our clients & partners say...

James McGregor

Head of HR

UK Challenger Bank

Victoria brought invaluable insight to a key cultural change initiative. She offered some genuine thought leadership, which meant delivery beyond the original brief, but crucially still within the agreed timeline/budget. Her contribution has shaped my own perspective on leadership development.

Chief People Officer

Vic contributed to the development of our Behaviours framework and statements, providing insightful guidance to and critical evaluation of our project’s work. Vic’s experience, expertise and passion in this field were invaluable in ensuring that we produced a set of Behaviours statements which addressed the culture of our organisation and in developing a programme to embed the behaviours into the fabric of our Charity. I would strongly recommend Vic Proud.

Investing in leadership development to drive a high performance culture

Working with Proud Consulting, we have been looking at how well we lead our organisation. The experience has been great and the outputs valuable, as Victoria and team provided a great forum for us to be really honest about where we are, the feedback we have for each other and what our functional strategies should be. We are working hard in our journey to business excellence and Proud Consulting will continue to be an important element in our mix.

Suzanne Lamont

Global Head of Talent 

Victoria navigated a team of senior HR leaders through what could have been a very challenging Strategic Talent Review & Re-structure in a way that show cased her talents. Where other consultants fail to bond with their clients in these situations, she brought empathy and candour, creating trust and engagement. Her smart thinking, flexibility and creative insights set the team on a new path. I hold Vic in high regard and recommend her without reserve.

Ways of working changed in 2020- I wanted to ensure my team and my business were supported as we adapted to this new world. Proud Consulting helped me rethink the people strategy for my growing business. By assessing what is important to the business and everyone in it we were able to see clearly what we had to do to manage process and ways of working to ensure everyone is aligned and on the journey together.

Proud Consulting helped us at a time when we were experiencing rapid growth and our HR capability required strategic support in order to enable us to retain and attract the talent we needed . We found them to be true professionals in both the quality of their work as well as the way they developed trust with our Executive. I would highly recommend Victoria and team to any SME on their growth journey. 


Preferred partner for culture, values and people strategy

Proud Consulting are our preferred partner for everything to do with culture, values and strategy, and their WayFinder methodology has my full support and endorsement. Vic is a phenomenal consultant, and a qualified Occupational Psychologist, and WayFinder is by far the best way of baselining/calibrating any organisation against its own values and strategy simply and directly. The huge benefit of this is everyone can see immediately where the real opportunities and pinch points are so all learning and development can be focused in exactly the right place for maximum value. Vic’s personal passion, intellect and creativity are extraordinary gifts, she is a joy to work with.

Victoria is a fantastic project partner when it comes to cultural transformation and communications. She offers both a strategic yet very tangible approach to complex situations. Her insightful and inclusive mindset make her very effective and engaging to work with.

I would highly recommend Victoria and team.
