2019 Client Brochure

2018 Client Brochure

We have consistently ‘zigged’ when everyone else ‘zags’.

Never has there been a greater imperative for organisations to keep ‘transforming’ – to become ‘measurably better’ – at less cost.

All of us are driven by globalisation; the ‘digitisation of everything’ ; the disruption of conventional supply chains; more and more precise information systems; flatter employee structures. Our huge, unwieldy and expensive public sector is especially under serious stress after the banking crisis and Brexit. The list of drivers for change is endless.

Over the last 17 years we have seen too many examples of clients hiring big, very expensive consultancies which can produce horrible, life-threatening failures. When finding the ‘right’ senior board experienced, ethical, independent can deliver remarkable returns. It is our delight to help a CEO and a board to lead successful change and improve the bottom line.

Our successful track record

We have proved our track record over and over again in our around £4 million of successful transformational projects so far delivering many millions of transformational returns for our clients. What is also stunning is the £1m of ‘sourcing savings’ we have made for our clients saving dramatically over the daily ‘percentage add-on costs’ made by the 200 or so interim agents in the UK nowadays. When we started in 2000 there were only about 30 interim agents in the UK. However, ALL interim agents are ‘zagging’ in the same costly ‘head-renting’ way’.



Successful client projects include – Vodafone, Panasonic, Tata Technologies, Yeo Valley, Flogas, GB Oils, Optimax, The Stationery Office, the Solicitors Regulation Authority, DHL and a host of fast growing UK private sector businesses. In the public sector- The Crown Prosecution Service, FWAG (DEFRA), General Social Care Council, Ordnance Survey, The Legal Services Board.

Do you as a successful board level independent ‘zig’ when so many of the rest ‘zag’? Then you might be for us.

For over 17 years so far, as successful independent top project ‘marriage brokers’ between your talent and MD’s and top decision makers we have avoided collecting large unwieldy and impersonal databases. We are also quite definitely NOT daily- percentage ‘head renting interim agents’, though there are a number of good high client fee ‘head- renters’ who we have come to like for their good ethical values over time. We happily refer them to others, if we are asked. This is a big and ever- growing market.

Our members suggest that every independent needs firstly to be a fine networking, thought leading ‘self-hunter’, and also, over time, build ‘relationships of trust’ with about 6 good ‘head-renters’ out of around 80 nowadays. A perplexing complexity for any individual to cope with.

We have only ever aimed to look after a defined maximum of never more than 150 subscribing members. To protect your important privacy we have never published our members list. Though, when you come to our events, you would meet a proportion of them, depending on the ‘insight speaker subject’ from 12 to up to 60 at a time. And we positively encourage members to build valuable relationships of like-minds with excellent board level ‘project’ experience but importantly also in other board disciplines to your own. This is a different ‘network resource’ to, for instance ‘all digital engineers’, or all HR directors. Or in a grouping of turnaround MD’s or all FD’s. Valuable as these are too.

Very usually we run around 7 bi monthly London ‘insight events’ in Piccadilly/St James square for our members, alumni and clients- ‘at cost’. For to be ‘the best’ you know you need to be’ a lifetime learner’.

Here is what one of our long standing members, one of our highly successful world banking and ‘China experts’ and an expert in new gaming theory in decision making, says

‘Transformation Leaders is a long-established board level Executive Project sourcing firm in the field of business and organisational transformation. David Pinchard, MD, has an ability to look well ahead at the strategic drivers of disruption both internationally and locally and to decipher the precise needs for business change projects and, with pinpoint accuracy, after careful face to face confidential briefing, arrive at the right two to three candidates for key shortlist interview by a client to meet these challenges head-on. Transformation Leaders has a strong track record for’ best in class talent’ that can square up to any leading consulting firm to deliver measurably better results for a far simpler and less costly fee, compared to the widely available head-renting agency model. In addition, I have attended many of T-L’s Thought Leadership ‘insight events’ in London and Bristol over the years and they have provided unparalleled insight to the big issues of the day. Providing a continuous development opportunity for independent change leaders to widen their breadth of understanding to support their projects in an ever faster-paced world.

Remembering that 2%-4% project placement of any good agency database in a year is a sensible ‘norm’ We always say , what about the other 96%?
