What our clients say

I have been working with ML Consulting for over twenty years now, and at no stage have I ever even considered a move elsewhere. Their knowledge and expertise in the field of career and talent management and their ability to identify the true, underlying potential that exists below the surface, in my experience, is unrivalled. One of the key things that differentiates ML consulting from the crowd is their genuine desire to find the best possible solution to a problem and to follow through until a situation is resolved. I cannot recommend the team highly enough. The feedback from our employees is always positive. Their experiences of working with Maxine are often described as life-changing, especially for those who have been facing issues in both their work and in their personal lives.

Working with Maxine is a pleasure. She possesses a rare combination of wisdom, trust, frankness, kindness and deep intellect. There are few executive coaches in the world who have the gravitas to work with global senior leaders in a range of industries such as Finance, Entertainment and Media – Maxine is one of them. I have used her to coach many executives (in the US and Europe) and always received the highest marks from clients.

Maxine’s life experiences and commercial insight underpin her coaching style. With a focus on output and deliverables, her openness and honesty help her tailor bespoke solutions to every coaching situation. Maxine’s approach brings science into the commercial environment to deliver a greater return through understanding how organisations are constructed and how the world workd. She has great industry knowledge and a unique level of business maturity, which makes her comfortable to work with. ML Consulting delivers excellent value for money.

As life grew more complicated and options complex I viewed my options through a narrow lens. Maxine changed that – she held my hand, helped me grow and released the latent potential she had indentified, which I hadn’t seen in myself. The result has been a life changing career step which has opened up a world more rewarding financially, more stimulating intellectually and more fulfilling personally”. No couch based analysis or pseudo shrink speak – she just seeded new thinking, confidence and belief. She promised I would look back and see traumatic change for what it could be – a change for the better. She was right.

Susan Woodward, The Sharp Project

Maxine is a rare blend of academic rigour and pragmatic realism. She uses this to great effect and candidly reflects behaviours, personal assumptions and modes of operating that she observes. Maxine’s manner is engaging, empathic but not sympathetic. She has humour but not ego which made our sessions a real pleasure. More importantly, without even realising it I have gained knowledge and insight through the process which will be of great personal benefit for a long time to come.

Anna Mealings, Associated British Foods

I have had the pleasure of working with Maxine for a number of years, both under her guidance whilst being coached and also as a client. She is incredibly skilled at helping individuals to identify learning opportunities and solutions to key challenges in order maximise their potential. I would not only recommend Maxine as one of the best coaches I know, but also as one of the best people I know.

Rachel Denning, Time Warner

As a coach, Maxine is challenging, patent and inspirational. With her honest assessment and ability to ask the difficult questions, I was able to see things from different perspectives. Maxine has helped me change my thinking and, more importantly, my actions, enabling me to develop as a leader, overcoming barriers that had previously held me back. The skills and strategies I learned will be invaluable for the rest of my career.
