“HPO has the advantage of being highly practical and easy to implement. Thanks to the HPO-diagnosis you can quickly tell what to do in order to improve performance. It is a methodology that properly puts a finger on the issues.”

"It was great to meet you during the training in the US and have to say it was definitely the best training session I have ever attended.

Cheers"

"I attended the BAWP conference on Tuesday and heard Manley's presentation and just wanted to say that in my 19 years as a police officer, that was the best presentation I have ever experienced. I came away feeling inspired and motivated. I could have listened to him for hours! I will definitely be promoting it here in the force."

"The reports coming back to me about the weekend are that all of the customers who attended have decided to move all their business .......to BT!! Thank you for helping to make the weekend so much fun for our guests, and our own people. All the feedback I have received has been very positive. Customers and hosts have remarked that this was truly a memorable and inspirational occasion. The effort you both put into making our first pan European hospitality event such a success was really appreciated. Apparently the customers that attended want a repeat event every quarter!"
Phil London - Marketing Communications - BT Global Services 24th May 2016
"Everybody got a great deal from your presentation yesterday and equally as much from your enthusiasm and energy as an individual and a leader - you have certainly given them a lot of food for thought. I am convinced that your presentation and personal style could benefit and inspire many of our young budding leaders and I am sure we will be in touch in the future for more of the same."

Hi Manley, a superb talk at the YPO gig today. Thank you very much, very inspirational. Please let us know when you are next down as would love to have a beer!
Ian Wason - CEO - The IDM Group, South Africa 31st May 2016
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your incredibly inspiring talk last night with the School of Life. I have to admit I was a little dubious as often ‘inspiring’ talks can be the opposite – but I genuinely woke up buzzing and have told anyone who will listen how great you were!
Apart from wanting to sail around the world, the wrong way, I feel as though I learnt a lot from you.
You’ve made me realise its ok to show empathy and compassion in the work environment.
So thank you, truly – what a wonderful life you have lived.
Very best and I hope to come to another talk soon."
Hattie MacAndrews - HMPR 31st May 2016
“I have read Manley’s book ‘Compassionate Leadership’ and found it to be a masterful business book. I say this not only because of the content and excellent approaches to business leadership and cultural change but because I have lived this journey with Manley. He assisted the Teleflex International Leadership Team and the Teleflex Executive Staff in defining the values for the team, the division and ultimately the entire organisation. We travelled the journey of self-discovery using tools such as the Iceburg, aligning ourselves towards the ME, YOU and US and engaging in active dialogue within our organization. I had a good team. With the help of Manley and the tools described in the book we ended up with a great team and a truly high performing organization.”
