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 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 collaborative way of working in which all necessary ecosystem members (stakeholders and beyond) work together from the outset and on an equal footing to bring forth a mutually-beneficial result.
Over the course of three decades, Jack has provided co-creation consulting services to a wide range of businesses and nonprofit organisations, including Findhorn Foundation (articulating its purpose), McCain Foods (conceiving a new potato product), Home Office (rethinking national police training), ABN AMRO Bank (launching a high potentials programme), Shell Learning Centre (creating a new vision and strategy), and Boosey & Hawkes (scenario planning — with Romy Shovelton).

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
