"I have worked with Chris Thomas as both a candidate and a client. As a candidate, I was impressed with the continuous support throughout a complicated decision making process and appreciated the high level of communication and openness along the way. Having been successful, she was the first person I turned to take on my recruitment needs as the new GM"

"Christine Thomas, CEO of TALENT, performed terrifically as a coach and instructor in the entrepreneurship program and investment events I organize in the Basque Country, Spain. She personally coached 6 companies to improve their opportunities to create a growth team for their businesses.  She helped one of those companies to begin their international fund raising. My entrepreneurs scored her with very high grades. I will definitely count on her again"

"Approached as a candidate for a GM role, Christine took the time to get to know me and really assess my suitability to the role . She made sure there was both a fit with the company culture and my longer term career aspirations. Christine’s personality combined with her ability to read and understand people, ensured a match with client and candidate needs to a tee. I look forward to benefiting from Christine’s experience in the future, working with her from a recruitment and learning and development perspective to help further strengthen the existing organisation and add fresh talent as we further develop to invigorate this great brand"

"We often engage TALENT's assessment practice to provide our clients with a scientific confirmation of candidates' culture fit. We think this additional step to our own assessment methodology adds true organisational value in closing the gap between actual and aspirational performance. This adds one more assurance that we match personalities to culture fit"
