What are the challenges facing partners operating in the criminal justice setting?
Having had numerous interviews throughout my career, Darren provided we with a simplistic but effective means of answering questions with purpose. Building on my past skills and experience it has improved my interview technique and enhanced my leadership style when working in large group environments. I highly recommend the importance of investing in yourself away from the norm if you are to achieve success, and the difference it can make is outstanding.Matt - Fire & Rescue: Fire & Rescue Senior Officer
I have been seeking promotion to Superintendent for a number of years, I successfully completed a number of temporary roles but struggled each time I came to the selection process. Having decided I would change my approach I engaged with Darren Downs from Lead Consultancy with only 5 weeks to go. I completed 6 sessions where we worked on presentations, questions and delivery. The sessions were brilliant, they were so relatable and made it easy for me to add a structure to my evidence. Doing lots of practice questions and getting feedback improved my confidence hugely and completing a full mock board really helped reduce my anxieties. On the day, I was nervous, but the coaching meant I was able to manage this and deliver an excellent performance and I am now very happily a Superintendent. I would recommend Darren to everyone and all ranks due to his personable and relatable manner.Helen - Police Supt: Police
