John Lewis Partnership
Founded in 1925, the John Lewis Partnership centres around their founder's vision that a successful business is powered by its people, meaning that the UK's leading retail company is actually owned by the 85,500 Partners working for John Lewis and Waitrose. They believe in forming long term relationships with both their employees ('partners') and their suppliers. The Pitch Process worked with their top team of staff trainers to help ensure they were delivering this message authentically and with confidence. Our Understanding Me workshop focussed on the tools for imparting comprehensive customer service skills training which would align with the Waitrose principles of inclusivity and sustainability.
Crisis is the UK national charity for single homeless people. The charity offers year-round education, employment, housing and well-being services from centres in London, Newcastle, Oxford, Edinburgh and Merseyside, called Crisis Skylight Centres. The Pitch Process is proud to be working with Crisis on a regular basis, running workshops in Confident Communication on their bi-annual Employment Platform days. These are to help their clients find and maintain employment, focussing on essential presentation and communication skills needed to secure that first job.
BroadMinded is a community for curious and ambitious women, which focusses on bringing together talented and dynamic women from a wide range of sectors, believing that "No two ‘Broads’ are alike". They organise regular events, courses and workshops in London to inspire members to do more and do it well, as well as events where women can be honest about the challenges they face, encourage and learn from each other's experiences. The Pitch Process will be delivering Presentation Skills talks and workshops for BroadMinded.
