John working in the Community

Consultancy for community groups built on identifying need, designing support and delivering confidence.

Identifying need…

(For no fee)  I listen first and then help you identify your priority measures of success and how to achieve them.

Designing support…

If appropriate I PROPOSE a fully costed programme of support, from half a day to several days over time. Note I am happy to work pro-Bono should circumstances suggest it.  Each session to have a mixture of advice and mentoring, opportunities for reflection and a range of practical activities and materials to take away. Topics you may include some of those listed below.  We discuss the PROPOSAL and when agreed it becomes our CONTRACT and I start work.

Delivering confidence…

Our work together might include:

  • Your Group, Business or Charity Development Plan and how day to day activities can lead to more success.
  • Quality Assurance, evaluating success and planning for improvement - inclusive of the iAbacus license
  • Clarifying objectives and terms of reference
  • Leadership advice, guidance, coaching and mentoring
  • Human Resource Management including selection, induction, training, performance management and conflict resolution.

Key benefits:

  • I charge you what you pay yourself (that's FREE if you are all volunteers!)
  • It's a bespoke service designed to suit your circumstances
  • Access to proven materials, processes and advice - using The iAbacus Model  and from 2017 inclusive of an iAbacus on-line evaluation and planning tool licence.
  • Colleagues will be more confident, energised, inspired and above all, clear about how to use new capabilities in their work.
  • My guarantee - if evaluations are less than satisfactory I will not charge, you need not pay

Put simply, he is an inspiration. Always an innovator, John's work is the product of deep thinking and is anchored in what he knows motivates people. I have so often seen the long lasting impact when he works with groups and individuals alike. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him without reservation

Philip Holmes, Director, BCEM Ltd

He is wise and he wants you to be wise too. It sounds dramatic but he changed my life by helping me regain the courage and self-belief which had been temporarily been taken from me.

Secondary Head Teacher (wishes to remain anonymous)

Your role is vital - you are the trusted face and the professional glue. Don't underestimate the effect of how you model professional conduct and integrity. You do walk the talk and ask the tough questions of everyone, including yourself.

Mike West Inspector of Special Measures School

I was at your session – you were incredibly inspiring – so much that it somewhat ‘changed my life’. So I guess it’s a big thank you to you for being one of those realistic, down to earth and interesting guys that education seems to lack these days!

Stuart Spendlow Teacher

I heard John speak – he was witty, articulate knowledgeable and inclusive. He was a big hit - thought provoking while remaining respectful of the experience of his audience. John will stretch you and make you think about things more deeply than you may have before. Not only that, he's a thorough good man!

Mark Grant Business & Leadership Coach.

He has a special way of bringing clarity and common sense to any task or challenge, which, combined with his wicked sense of humour endear him to colleagues at any level. He is demanding and authoritative but genuinely perceptive, supportive and caring.

Maggie Morland - Artist at Maggie Morland Arts

John is extraordinarily energetic and creative, with a capacity to pull together disparate ideas in a way that is readily accessible. He has been a pleasure to work with bringing warmth and profound sense of values and purpose into everything he has done with us

Kevin Ford Chief Executive FPM

I worked with John and he was fantastic, he really helped me realise my potential and believe in my new business venture. After working with him I feel clear about what I need to do next and how to do it. Really hope to work together again in the future.

Diane Stubbs Business Woman and winner of local “Dragon’s Den”

I've been privileged to work with John and have been impressed with his total engagement and commitment to his clients. John possesses that rare quality of truly respecting and valuing people. 'People Matter' to John Pearce and he ensures that their needs comes first.

Alan Wayment, Director, VISION

Of all the days I have delivered for the National College, the ones I have facilitated with John shine out like beacons in my memory. They are the ones from which I have learned and they are the ones from which the participants have continued to contact me, as a serving head to follow up issues which began as discussion on the day.
