I would recommend Endaba to anyone looking to find their true potential - I can't thank Lynette enough for helping me unlock mine.  '

' I am delighted that I found Endaba to partner and guide our business along a journey of cultural transformation. They have been authentic and insightful, provoking and supportive, unwavering in their client focus and never taking their eye off the business rationale. Personally they have been amazing to work with - helping me to raise my self awareness as well as that of many of my colleagues, as the conversations taking place within the business have shifted. I would thoroughly recommend Patrick, Lynette and the team as true business partners - they will challenge you, you will learn and grow and help to catalyse the evolution of your organisation.  '

' With an extensive history of 50 years in the retail and luxury business, I have naturally worked closely with many professional client and service based organisations to assist in the growth of my various business ventures. Of all these companies, the most highly rated is Endaba. Endaba has a very deep understanding of the sector in which I operate – retail. They have an immediate and instinctive grasp of the particular needs of their clients. This, tempered with an uncanny knack of matching people with people and organisations with talent, has been of particular benefit to me in a number of outstanding examples of great matches and business relationships. Endaba is trusted by client and applicant alike, to help make life-enhancing moves which are equally important to both parties.  '
