Introducing...Jamie Illingworth

Jamie joined Purple Pebble People in the Winter of 2012.  He specialises in Coaching, Team Building and Leadership Development. Always genuine, he brings enthusiasm, energy, empathy and an innate level of adaptability and tenaciousness to every learning interaction he delivers.  His enthusiasm drives a level of belief in the challenges he supports his clients to undertake, and he enjoys the point when he sees someone achieve congruence and attain the “light bulb moment”. He adds value through the way he interacts with people on a personal level, bringing creativity and consistency to the solutions he designs, develops and delivers.

Jamie brings with him a variety of experiences including service in the armed forces; customer service leadership for British Gas, Yorkshire Electricity and Hallmark; Process Team Leader in Food Manufacturing at Northern Foods.  He knows what it means to have tight deadlines to achieve, and teams to drive towards a common goal, and these experiences enable him to add realism to the subjects he delivers.
