October 2016: We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Silver Medal in the prestigious Constantinus International Management Consultancy Awards. In recognition of our work, we were also awarded the Certificate as National Champion of Great Britain.


As the sole UK entry, The Beech Centre for People, Performance and Organisational Development’s award was as a result of our work with The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability (RHN) in London over the last three years. The RHN is a ground breaking medical charity working to improve the lives of people with severe brain injury. The Beech Centre worked collaboratively with the RHN to affect a fundamental change in the way they cared for their patients. This resulted not only in better outcomes but also lower costs.

This year’s Constantinus Awards final was held in Toronto, Canada, where The Beech Centre battled it out with the top management consultancies from Europe, Asia, North America and South America.

Members of the The Institute of Consulting, part of the Chartered Management Institute nominated our Consultancy Practice for their Practice of the Year award while these awards were running and we were delighted to be awarded:

  • UK’s Consultancy Practice of the Year in 2010
  • Runner up UK’s Consultancy Practice of the Year in 2011

Following our success in the UK awards, we were asked to recognise the UK in the global management consultancy awards in 2013, The Constantinus Awards, run by the International Council of Management Consultancy Institutes (ICMCI). Our journey to the prestigious ceremony in Johannesburg was rewarded with us being awarded the Silver Medal.

  • Silver Medallist International Management Consultancy Awards 2013

That award was based on our work with North Lincolnshire Council. The project involved changing mind-sets and behaviours to drive up new results, including giving vulnerable adults increased control over their own care. This work began with a leadership development programme. Working in a highly trusting and impactful partnership, together we recognised that behaviourally this was only the beginning. Together, we developed an Organisational Development plan to sustainably build internal capability, changing the culture and created qualified consultants, coaches and facilitators. This was truly inspiring. In delivering crucial services differently, the cost of the culture reduced by an equivalent of 20 times the investment.
An independent government survey confirmed service delivery moved to be ranked 2nd out of 157 adult social services across the UK.

“This is the first time I’ve been to the conference and it has absolutely surpassed my expectations. I came here thinking that I know quite a lot about OD, actually what I found is, that there is food for thought, the thinking and the contributions that others have made has actually stimulated my own thinking. To be able to take something back into my own organisation has been tremendous. I highly recommend it.”
