Our special guests for our November Platinum CEOs & Leaders lunch are Michael Crook, newly appointed CEO of SMS Environmental Ltd and Alison Leverett-Morris of ALM Coaching & Consultancy.
SMS Environmental has been an industry leader in Water Treatment and Water Hygiene for over 20 years, with locations across the UK and a Head Office in Oxfordshire. With a staff of over 200 they have seen consistent growth, in particular the last 4 years.
Michael and Alison will be discussing the journey that SMS have been on since the partnership between the two organisations started. It involves leadership development and culture shifts within SMS, unlocking potential in the talent within the organisation through Neuroscience and Psychology and the ability to gain real traction through implementing an operating system that drives everything they do. This has helped form the basis of a new Senior Leadership Team and new chapter for SMS which will propel the growth and ability to continue to offer the best service possible to their clients through quality and a customer service focus.
Their story is one of transformation and change. The discussion will be honest and focus on the early successes as well as some of the lessons learned.
