• “Anwen’s expertise and extensive experience were invaluable during a very sensitive and complex situation that impacted many people. Her coaching and guidance resulted in us being able to identify the varying needs of the individuals and provide a range of appropriate options that could be implemented. Upon taking her counsel, it became apparent to us that we had moved too quickly into solution mode without seeking to understand from an expert what was truly needed.”

  • “IAPS has been delighted to work alongside Dr. Anwen Whitham on a number of occasions. Dr. Whitham presented to the IAPS Education Committee delivering a thoroughly researched and detailed piece on the effects of screen time/digital devices on young children. This was followed up with a well-received keynote speech to our largest annual day conference for Deputy Heads and Director of Studies, proving Dr. Whitham’s ability to apply her research background in an applied way to effectively disseminate knowledge. It has been a pleasure to work alongside Dr. Whitham, she is diligent, approachable and flexible.”

  • “We have used Stable Focus to support us with numerous Head, Deputy Head and other Senior Leadership appointments over the past few years. We have always been highly impressed with the professionalism, responsiveness, and flexibility of their service, as well as the ability to put candidates at ease in what can be quite a stressful situation.   We worked with Stable Focus to create a bespoke, tailored programme to assess candidates using a variety of psychometric tests and found this to be a significantly more useful approach than ‘off the shelf’ approach adopted by other providers we have used in the past. This, combined with analysing a pool of reference candidates, has allowed us to take a much more rigorous, evidence-based approach to recruiting key senior roles. The information provided has also enabled us to identify highly personalised professional development pathways for our senior leaders.”
