A few of our past projects

Consultancy Case Studies

Pioneer Foods

South Africa

We worked with Pearson Edexcel in South Africa to pilot a set of unique behavioural modules that we designed for young people entering the workplace. These enabled a group of Pioneer Foods employees to work on and strengthen their soft skills through experiential learning. Pioneer Foods are one of the largest food and beverage companies in South Africa. Find out more here.

Employability Skills

India and Bangladesh

For the past 5 years we’ve been working in both countries undertaking research into employability skills and working with partners British Council, City and Guilds and local sector skills councils. This work informs the redesign of frameworks to help standardise training and qualifications and create clear benchmarks. We’ve presented at Global Education Dialogues in London and Sri Lanka and launched a final report in Delhi, India – click here. Our work in Bangladesh has brought us into contact with NGOs doing amazing work with young people, all kinds of initiatives and helping key stakeholders to consolidate projects and work more closely together

Bright HR

Fun at Work Series

Here in the UK we’ve recently been working on a great initiative to introduce more fun at work. “We know positive emotions help make people happy and that, in turn, happy people are productive, loyal and generally have higher levels of wellbeing than those who aren’t. Looking at the findings of this report, if we know that fun can increase effectiveness and productivity at work, why aren’t we doing more to bring fun and play into the workplace?” Click Here.

What our partners say about us

Testimonials

Affinity Sutton

“Affinity Sutton worked with Unimenta on the Advantage programme, aimed at helping residents with significant barriers into work.

SME Mentoring, London

“Emma Sue led and devised a SME Mentoring Scheme in West London on which I was a mentor. Emma Sue is an inspiring and informed leader. Whilst devising and producing a scheme which yielded positive outcomes for both me, my mentee and the other partnerships, she also delivered invaluable business and business-relationship development sessions which were a huge benefit to all. She instilled a wonderfully collegiate atmosphere which allowed mentoring relationships to blossom in a creative and trusting environment.” Nick Astor, Executive Producer Zubox; London

EQUIP-T ELT

“I just wanted to say how much I appreciated your work on EQUIPT and what a consistently high quality your input was. No matter what DFID and others decide now the Baseline materials will stand the test of time, many of the trainers have now moved onto greater things and you can feel rightfully proud of your work.” David Pardoe, British Council

Trinity London

“I have worked with Emma Sue on a range of projects in the UK and internationally including management training events at the European Business School in London; Business English teacher training programmes and exams for students in Europe and Asia and in-company training programmes in South Africa and Abu Dhabi.
