Testimonials for Gary

The speakers were all excellent – informative and entertaining.  Gary was particularly good, especially so given that he had the after-lunch ‘graveyard’ slot.  His lively presentation kept us all energised and I left the day feeling refreshed and re-enthused about my role.   Clerk to Governors - Conference delegate 

‘Gary has worked with our school leadership team as individuals and with us as a group; it has been highly motivating and has enabled us to become a much more cohesive team. This was highlighted in our recent OFSTED inspection which identified leadership and management as outstanding – we shared the outcomes of the work we have done together with Gary with the inspectors who were impressed.’

Headteacher – Bristol

Gary’s coaching is perceptive, provoking and provides much needed clarity in an ever shifting education landscape.  He provides value for money and resources which you use time and again.’

Headteacher – Bath and North East Somerset

‘A totally refreshing approach to dealing with CPD for both individuals and staff - we have used Gary Saul-Paterson in a variety of ways all of which have had the desired impact. From goal setting and motivation work with groups of staff, a tailor made Coaching Programme for Staff to personal one-to-one coaching for individuals, I am always totally confident that Gary meets our staff’s needs. We recently used Gary as a keynote speaker for an Awards Evening where he gave an outstanding talk to students about achieving their dreams. In summary, Gary is a key component in the school’s CPD toolkit.’

Assistant Head – North Somerset 

'Our discussions centre around real issues and are always underpinned by outcomes for children. An important part of the discussions focus on my well-being so that I feel valued and empowered to lead my school. I really believe that every headteacher should have access to professional coaching.'

Testimonials for Jayne 

Jayne is an exceptional professional coach and facilitator, with a true passion for inclusivity and fairness in all her dealings. I engaged Jayne as an Associate to The Peak Organisation because her passion, energy, diligence and professionalism shone brighter than her peers. Her design and preparation is meticulous, thoughtful, and creative, and her facilitation strong, authentic and vital. I have no hesitation in recommending Jayne - she does great work, and produces outstanding results.

Paul Crittenden Director of Leadwell at the Schools Advisory Service

Jayne was an excellent coach and would absolutely recommend her. She was responsive to what I wanted to focus on and provided useful material to help me with this. I found the materials and our discussions on leadership particularly helpful. I think it has really helped me progress in how I think about myself as a leader and I hope that the development from my sessions with Jayne will help me continue to progress in my leadership and my confidence as a leader.   Deputy Head of Dept in Ministry of Justice 


I felt Jayne created a safe space where I could reflect openly. I also appreciated her approach to challenging assumptions and her application of knowledge in terms of sharing different tools that could assist me in the work I wanted to do to during, and outside of, our coaching sessions. For these reasons, I think Jayne is a highly effective coach. Strategy Lead - Department of Transport

Thank you so much for your time and expertise at the recent session you ran for the Maternity forum.  It was such a positive experience - I went away feeling really positive and refreshed and said the same to my husband when I got home that evening. It was brilliant to have such a relevant session for people in the group and for it to be delivered by someone with great insight into their situation.

Karen Rickards Co-ordinator of the UWE Maternity Forum (Now known as the New Parent forum)

Relaxed and informal atmosphere which enabled delegates to feel comfortable & open to sharing their thoughts. Enjoyed all activities. Inspiring, creative and calm - ideal for reflection and growth Gail Gibson Motivational Speaker, Coach, Trainer, Author & Author of 'Making Connections'


The facilitation was definitely 10/10.  Jayne was an excellent facilitator as she was really personable and provided a good balance between delivering information/leading and allowing discussion time.  She had a sense of humour too and made the day a relaxing yet energising experience. Primary School Teacher, North Somerset
