What our clients are saying

“The session we had at Convert with Judy was transformational. She handled a completely remote team of more than a dozen, strong willed and outspoken individuals like a champ and conducted a rapid fire, amazingly innovation event that sparked so many out of the box ideas.  We have a list of projects to execute and a new respect for each other’s perspectives.

“I highly recommend Judy in all virtual and real world settings. Her skill as a moderator is nonpareil.”

Trina Moitra

Head of Marketing, Convert.com​

“A group of us at have recently completed the Remote Facilitation course by Judy Rees and found it really engaging and valuable. The sessions bring together Judy’s remote facilitation experience and her Clean Language expertise to provide practical and actionable practices for how teams can improve their distributed and dispersed ways of working. I would strongly recommend looking into this to help teams move to the next level – we have already started to implement the improvements with internal teams and our clients.”

Stuart Munton

Head of Delivery Innovation AND Chief Methodologist at AND Digital

“Judy performed a session on Collaborative Influence for Remote Workers at my company. I wasn’t sure what to expect – but she engaged the entire audience and we left not only with new knowledge about ways to use tools (a side effect), but also new techniques to engage others and discover what’s most important in collaborative influence.

“A very enlightening session — in fact, after it was over, people reached out to me asking for more. They were genuinely engaged and excited.

“Highly recommend Judy and all her training!”

Our Consultants

Judy Rees has introduced scores of trainers, coaches, and facilitators to the joy of live online training – including within large organisations such as the RSA. 

For the last three years, she’s been the host of one of the world’s first online-video unconferences, Metaphorum, which connects 150 people around the world in a 13-hour live-learning marathon. As a news editor, and later as a media executive, she also managed large remote teams for many years. 

The co-author of Clean Language: Revealing Metaphors And Opening Minds, she is a regular keynote speaker at Agile and other events around the world.

Steve McCann has had a long and interesting international career involving management of and relationships with remote teams, some of them in the more complex and hostile parts of the world, in organisations and projects with more than just deadlines and profit margins at risk.

After a short commission in the UK military Steve took up a role in the UN involving logistic and security work in the Balkans during the conflict, followed by five more domestic years in project and management consultancy, that saw the start of his professional training career. In 2003 he set up Safer Edge, a boutique risk advisory business working in humanitarian type security all over the world, often in challenging places with teams working at great risk. 

Still the owner of Safe Edge, Steve handed over complete executive responsibility for the business to others in 2017 so that he could focus entirely on working with Judy Rees and developing what has become the Rees McCann Partnership.
