Leading organisations still rely on our expertise to help them select, develop and keep the people who keep them in business.

The investment management sector is, at heart, a “people business” so it’s essential that Impax consistently makes smart “people decisions.”   For almost a decade, we’ve used Sixth Sense to help us get this right – Chris and Jackie’s enormous experience and tailored approach to supporting us have been, and continue to be, invaluable.

Ian Simm, Founder and CEO, Impax Asset Management

Jackie is an amazing coach and outstanding professional.  I have worked with her for over three years where she has provided support in many areas such as coaching, psychometric assessments and team building events.  Jackie is a great listener and takes time to understand your needs and requirements.  She builds an excellent rapport with individuals at all levels across the business and takes a genuine interest in people.  Jackie’s natural, warm and engaging communication style has always received positive feedback.  It is evident that she is an expert in her field and I would highly recommend her!

Neema Patel - HR Manager

Sixth Sense have been a trusted partner to Serco for a number of years delivering assessments, coaching across our leadership population and beyond and most recently undertaking a research project on gender & leadership.  I am always hugely appreciative of their partnership approach which is always flexible and agile - really listening and responding to our organisational requirements.  Their depth of knowledge and experience across assessment, development, coaching, psychology and wellbeing is second to none – and to top it off - they are a great team to work with!  On a personal note, I have experienced coaching with Jackie which was in equal part supportive, compassionate, challenging, and transformational.

Debbie Dobson - Head of Talent Development, Serco

Sixth Sense is an amazing business consultancy.  They offer individual and team-based business coaching by highly qualified and experienced coaches, as you would expect.  Drawing on both experience and highly specialist knowledge they use their expertise to help you navigate the very specific business challenges you may face.  However, what elevates Sixth Sense way above any of the great coaches I have worked with before, is their heart. 

They are highly skilled, responsible, focused and thoroughly decent humans and they bring their expertise and heart to other humans to make sure those humans can do their best work. 

I have no hesitation in recommending Sixth Sense and can’t thank them enough for the insights and encouragement they have given me.  

Louise Thompson - Managing Director, Sopra Steria

I am always impressed by the professionalism and care Chris and Jackie show in coaching and evaluating. I trust them and consider them to be the very best at what they do.

Graeme Clarke - Group Head of People, Mott MacDonald

I have worked with Chris and Jackie for over 11 years and regard them as strategic advisors and in my experience, their ability to help you develop as a person, as a team and as a business is second to none. Their ability to reach into their network and deliver high calibre professionals to help with topics as wide as team development, creativity and wellbeing is astonishing and they always do it with an optimum balance between theory and pragmatism. On a personal level, the coaching I have received has been a key enabler of my own personal growth and I will be forever grateful.

Adrian Fieldhouse - Managing Director , Sopra Steria Government Sector and UK Excom Member

We have partnered with Sixth Sense to deliver stress management and resilience building courses across the UK for a number of years.  The programme has reached a significant proportion of our workforce and received very positive feedback, making a strong contribution to supporting positive wellbeing and reducing the stigma around mental ill-health.

James Brown - Head of Health & Wellbeing, Siemens Energy

Chris has worked with members of my team and me for many years. I have personally found his coaching exceptionally valuable.  He is an incredible listener, provides supportive and constructive challenge when needed and provides a great counterpoint for reflection and personal development

Sam Hockman - CEO, Engie Futures & The Public Sector

I have valued working with Chris, Jackie, and the Sixth Sense team for over 15 years around the Serco world, on a wide range of projects, including leadership assessment, diversity and inclusion, psychological safety, resilience, and executive coaching.  Chris has a very direct and no-nonsense style which is refreshing and efficient in getting results.

Paul Gaskin - HRD UKE Division, Serco

We first partnered with Sixth Sense to deliver comprehensive training on stress and resilience for one of our client’s managers and team members across multiple offices (from north Scotland to southern England), open to 15,000 delegates.  From this experience, we formed a great working relationship and over several years we have now worked together on many other projects for various clients resulting in great feedback.

Sixth Sense are a pleasure to work with – their knowledge of business psychology is impressive, they’re highly professional and have a fantastic network to deliver.

Chris Downes - Director, Boost Wellbeing

We use Sixth Sense for all our executive recruiting personality testing, and we have been delighted by their agility, responsiveness, and timeliness, as well as their very high standard of work.  They have helped with coaching our executive team too, both individually and collectively; providing tailored, sensitive and value adding professional advice and guidance.
