I have had the privilege of partnering with Gearoid in leadership development with senior officials. He is smart, practical, and committed to the work, a first-rate facilitator and coach who understands what is needed to help successful senior managers be even more effective in achieving their goals and aspirations.

During my time at UCD Smurfit Graduate School of Business I worked with Gearóid Hardy on the design and delivery of a wide range of management development programmes. Gearóid has been a pleasure to work with. He is flexible and client-driven, he performs at a consistently high level and his approach has always been engaging, innovative and grounded in practice. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Gearóid you had a major influence on the final training programmes developed for Lean that we have rolled out in Bank of Ireland. What strikes me as I reflect on our working together is your range of skills and experience. While you demonstrated your wealth of knowledge and experience, I find it difficult to put a label on your skill set. You are a highly accomplished OD consultant with excellent coaching skills. And I know you to be accomplished in Lean.
Noone Casey & Co
Gearóid have been providing training and consulting services to Noone Casey and Noone Casey clients for many years. We come back to Gearóid on an ongoing basis as a result of his guaranteed professionalism and focussed ability to deliver appropriate professional training to our staff and clients. Gearóid has introduced and implemented a continuous improvement programme in our organisation that has produced valuable commercial results.
