Work as we know is changing fast and a strong organisational culture has never been more important.
Is your organisation’s culture strong enough to survive future challenges? Do your employees feel like they belong at work? Are your employees connected to your vision, mission, values and purpose?

You care how people feel at work. And so do we.
Powerful things can happen when people feel they belong in their workplace. Performance is strong, profits are high, and people are engaged more with the purpose of your organisation.

Advita's deliverables were top-notch, and she had the versatility to work across the whole spectrum of internal communications
Advita worked with us over several months during a period of disruption and change at the Barbican, when we really needed to step up how we were communicating with our team. She took a very collaborative approach, taking the time to properly understand our context and hear from our people about what did and didn’t work for them. Her deliverables were top-notch, and she had the versatility to work across the whole spectrum of internal communications – at a tactical level producing engaging and informative content and materials, while also developing an overarching internal comms strategy for that will stand us in good stead for the future.

An absolute joy to work with
We teamed up with Advita for an internal comms project and have gone on to work on another project around inclusion and belonging. She is hugely knowledgeable and experienced as a consultant but, more importantly, an absolute joy to work with. She’s collaborative. committed and always brings a fresh perspective. It’s such a pleasure working together, and we can’t wait to find some more projects to team-up on.

Advita is fantastic!
Not only does she know an endless amount about communications and best practice, she is also a highly professional and delightfully friendly person to work with. Recently, Advita worked with VMA GROUP during the early stages of the Covid19 pandemic and helped to facilitate and lead a large number of webinar discussions with VMA GROUP’s clients and broader stakeholder groups. Discussion topics focused on the impacts of the pandemic, crisis communications and how best to deal with the many challenges that Comms professionals were facing. The sessions led by Advita received fantastic feedback and we were very grateful for her support and hard work. I can’t recommend Advita highly enough.

The session was fully booked!
The confidence session that Advita delivered for Sustrans was fantastic! It gave people practical tools to help build their confidence, think about what ‘imposter syndrome’ is and how to work through various exercises to continue to build on a foundation of confidence. She looked at different scenarios and how confidence looks different in different people and different situations.
The session was fully booked, with people on the waiting list wanting to join! It was pitched at exactly the right level. It was great as a facilitator to have a chat with Advita before the session to ensure that she was aware of where we as an organisation were and how she could make the most impact.
I have been inundated with people wanting to watch the recording and access the workbook.
Thank you so much, Advita. We’d love to have you back to help us again to build on what you’ve started.
Ridhi Kalaria, Partnership Manager, Sustrans
I will be forever grateful for what Advita has done for me
I started working with Advita when I got a promotion at work that I wasn’t convinced I was capable of doing. Imposter Syndrome was raging, and I was scared of the idea of being seen as a leader. In my first session, I made it clear to Advita that I was not talking to her about ‘progression’ or ‘next steps’ at all. I was there to get more confident in my role. Three months in, I was confident and happy. I wondered why I’d held myself back for so long – why I’d let anxiety prevent me from living to my potential.
Five months in, and I found myself applying for (and securing!) a new job with more responsibility and better pay – at a level, I would never have thought myself capable or worthy of previously. Advita is, quite simply, an amazing human being. She knows exactly how to help others see their own potential and their own worth. She recommended the very best books for my particular set of confidence issues. And she asked me all the right questions to help me better understand myself and my abilities.
I will be forever grateful for what Advita has done for me. She is an inspiring coach because she is an authentic coach. Her experience, her approach, and her commitment to supporting her coachees make her brilliant at what she does.
Thank you Advita. I am incredibly lucky to know you.

Advita isn’t afraid to step into mid-flight fast-paced environments
She uses her skills to assimilate information quickly to bring an effective Communication and Engagement plans together. Providing counsel and constructive challenge across a wide spectrum of stakeholders, to drive awareness and behaviour change in practical grounded ways, as part of a desired cultural behaviour movement, is not only something that Advita delivers well, but it’s part of who she is and it’s a natural skill she brings into her everyday engagement with people.
I highly recommend Advita, her overall work ethic, ability to build business intelligence quickly, her solid technical skill set, alongside a behaviour skill and approach that makes her, in my opinion, business agnostic in supporting and driving transformation change.
