Romy has a big heart and is in her element in big groups, getting them to do things they did not believe they could do, and having fun at the same time. Her attention to detail in planning events is immense, so that on the day everything flows smoothly. Romy has an amazing network of people who really care about the future and sustainability, and she is constantly seeking to learn from her own expeiences and those of others. I learned a lot working with Romy.

She is the creator and host of the Tyddyn Retreat—the Mid Wales Venue and Holiday Cottages, situated in rural Wales (pictured below). Tyddyn Retreat is the ideal venue for meetings, workshops, retreats, management awaydays, leadership development programmes and other kinds of gathering.
Jack Martin Leith
Jack helps create world-enriching enterprises that generate maximum value for customers or service users, and the wider ecosystem of which the enterprise is but one interdependent part.
He is the originator of Rich Co-creation, a whole system approach to innovation and change, and has invented numerous management concepts and organisational practices, some of which run counter to prevailing doctrine.
Over the course of three decades, Jack provided co-creation services to a wide range of commercial and non-profit organisations. He has helped Findhorn Foundation discover and articulate its purpose, McCain Foods conceive a new potato product, Home Office rethink national police training, ABN Amro Bank launch its high potentials programme, the entire staff of Shell Learning Centre create a vision and strategy, and—in tandem with Romy Shovelton—Boosey & Hawkes conduct scenario planning.

His writings include Creating Collaborative Gatherings using Large Group Interventions—a chapter he contributed to the Gower Handbook of Training and Development—and Creating Greatness in the Realm Beyond Systems Thinking, which formed part of an e-book for conference participants.
Jack has been a council member of Association for Management Education and Development, and has lectured at London Business School, London School of Economics and Political Science, and University of Brighton.
Tim is the co-founder of Creative Connection and the School of Unknowing. He is a skilled coach and facilitator, a talented musician, the creator of Visual Minutes, and an Artist in Residence at Southbank Centre, London.
You can see him at work in the photo.
With Tim, you see the person before you see the professional – and perhaps that’s what makes him so good at what he does. He overcomes reluctance and cynicism with genuine kindness—but doesn’t miss anything of the complex undercurrents that exist in most organisations, of the relationships that for these organisations can make the difference between success and failure.
Head of Communications, Association of European Airlines
