Award-winning change consultancy Curium Solutions is supporting a Birmingham-based mentoring scheme for professional services practitioners. Senior Consultant Robbie Holden has become Chair of Birmingham Professional Services’ (BPS) Mentoring Committee.
Robbie Holden said: “I’ve experienced the benefits of having a mentor and wanted to use this experience to help others. BPS does a great job of representing professional services practitioners, businesses and students, giving our sector a voice and creating opportunities for everyone to flourish. This fits with Curium’s ethos of empowering potential.”
The Mentoring Committee runs BPS’ flagship Future Mentoring Academy, which supports aspiring, emerging and established professional services leaders. Chaired by Robbie, the Mentoring Committee comprises representatives from the city’s professional services businesses: law firms, recruitment, marketing, PR and business transformation.
Senior Consultant Becky Oliver is also volunteering with BPS. She is working with the Enterprise Adviser Network to bridge the gap between education and employers. Becky will support a Birmingham school to help it build a strategic employer engagement plan.
BPS connects, promotes and represents the professional services sector in Greater Birmingham, bringing together young and established leaders through its Aspire, Future and Leaders groups.
Curium empowers people and organisations across the world to achieve their personal and business potential. It helps organisations to turn their strategic priorities into reality through successful transformation.
Curium is made up of two core practices: Performance Learning and Change Delivery that combine to drive accelerated change in individuals and teams. This ensures that any intervention both accelerates people capability and then integrates practical mechanisms in the organisation to ensure the impact is embedded and sustained.
In April, the company won the Excellence in People Development Award at the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce Awards, before being named Business of the Year. It was also shortlisted in two categories at the Business Masters Awards.
Curium’s US business has also experienced a strong 2018, securing a first mandate in Canada and hiring performance learning specialist Suzan Hochstetler.
