What people are saying about MBL

"Our business has greatly benefited from MBL."

"I cannot recommend May Bird Leadership highly enough.  Our business has greatly benefitted from the high quality services provided with respect to business development, leadership and business management.  The owner Jo is amazing!  Super professional, always focused and with a calming, friendly manner.  She has assisted us, on numerous occasions, with business development both through in-office training and corporate retreats.  Our business is now better focused, better structured and more responsive due to her input.  She has great communication skills and is a pleasure to work with.  Their services are certainly excellent value for money too!"

Tonia Grace Botha, Managing Partner, G,S & T Legal LLP, Abbottsford, British Columbia, Canada

"A highly effective Master Black Belt / Business Transformation Consultant, delivering real results.

"Jo is a very highly effective and professional consultant, facilitator and coach.  Her vitality and enthusiasm coupled with a calm and determined outlook means that she brings passion and success to everything that she does.
I worked alongside her for some five years and she is a highly effective master black belt and business transformation consultant, delivering real improvement and great results for all of her clients.  She works hard on behalf of her clients to ensure that they get the very best outcomes for their business and combines toughness with compassion to enable the people she works with to grow and improve at a personal level alongside transformation in their business performance.
I could not more strongly recommend her, she is great to work with and will never let you down."

Mike Simmons, Director, Simmons-Dickenson

"A tremendous leader and mentor."

"Jo is an incredibly rare talent in that she is not only a tremendous leader and mentor, she also is a dynamic collaborator; a combination all too rarely found in the corporate world of my experience. I was fortunate enough to have her as my mentor and coach; time and again she demonstrated tenacity and strength navigating multiple obstacles in my career path. Without her guidance and consulting, I would not have been able to complete the accreditation I was seeking; subsequently, I was able to advance my career as a direct result.  Her exceptional professionalism and business acumen continuously produced high results and I witnessed on multiple occasions her bringing together fiercely divided parties to work together towards a goal.  I do not say lightly that she has the unique ability to command respect and collaboration from people representing diverse interests, whilst at the same time, displaying empathy and maintaining a level headed approach.  I owe a great deal to her guidance, leadership and coaching which greatly advanced not only my career, but also emotional intelligence and a lifelong respect for perseverance in the face of adversity."

"Unlocking mindsets to deliver bottom line results."

"Jo and I worked together on product quality within manufacturing operations for a few years, and I will always remember her ability to ‘unlock’ the mindsets of those around her that no longer thought improvements were possible. Delivering bottom line results with a smile!"

She provided excellent strategic advice to the regional leadership team on better ways of working.
She was very focussed on emphasising and delivering waste reduction projects and efficiently transferring resources and assets across the business.  I relied on Jo's support to deliver the global objectives within the US region and also regularly called on her for help and advice on numerous areas to help me deliver on our global objectives and to agree on best approaches to help us increase Jo played a big part in delivering standard ways of working across a globally diverse business across all value streams."
