At ARPAL we don’t really like the term ‘Management Consultant’ – it feels far too directive and distant. We aren’t comfortable with the idea that we could expect to walk into your business as experts and just tell you what to do – you know your business better than we do.  However, as we are all people who have run our own businesses or departments we do hope to bring you new ideas and fresh perspectives that will re-energise you and your company.


Our prime aim is to bring a strong commercial and real-world focus to the much softer set of skills which make up leadership development.  Experience of running businesses in a tough world means that not only can we take the rough with the smooth – but we can also show how this can be made manageable without sacrificing deeply held values. Although our Associates have formal education in business, coaching, mentoring and training, it is our practical know-how and real world experience that make the real connection between developing people and commercial success. Yes, we like KPIs, but we also like people.

Alison has proved to be a fantastic business advisor, who has an in depth understanding of business development, and who has greatly benefited us as a company.
