Business Speaker, Consultant & Coach

People and Performance

People are your powerhouse. If you want to fill your company with smart ideas, fill it with great people. In today’s business world it is people that provide competitive advantage. Research by McKinsey has provided firm evidence of the difference quality people can make. Companies with the best talent management practices outperform their competitors.

Jeff Grout’s work focuses closely on the link between people and performance. He believes strongly that the success of almost any organization is down to just three things:

  • The People you have
  • The Motivational Climate you create
  • The Way those people work together

Jeff has spent most of his professional career building high-performance teams. His own experiences coupled with important insights gained through interviews with numerous leaders in their field, have enabled him to help organisations translate the power of their people into business performance.

Jeff is a class act. So well prepared and he asks thoughtful and thought-provoking questions.
