I am a Corporate Programme Director at the London Business School.

Tim Hunt - Marketing Director of The Guardian says of Giles:

'I have worked with Giles Ford over a number of years as a coach and trainer and he has proved to be an excellent driver of transformation and change.

I first met Giles when he was Global VP for Change and Learning at Deutsche Bank and was impressed by his professionalism and his commitment to bring more creative ideas and thinking as well as stimulation into a corporate environment and more importantly by the results it delivered.

Subsequently, I have had the opportunity to commission learning and transformation programmes from Giles through Alchemical Arts. He ran creativity programmes for me at St Luke’s – an iconic and already highly creative advertising agency - as well as leadership development for Freeview. Both of these produced very enthusiastic feedback from previously cynical teams.

Giles brings an intellectually rigorous and thoughtful approach to learning: he is focused on personal change and results. He understands that learning needs to pay back from the moment you get back into the office rather than remain a theoretical improvement. At the same time, his approach is fun, fresh and creative - people work hard without feeling they’re working- and this leads to high engagement and better results.'
