What clients say

Stuart Webster, Head of Internal Communications JaguarLandRover

“John Smythe with Di Burton from Cicada has facilitated a number of off-sites with a combined team from internal communication, HR, and strategy, to help develop the extended business case for a global internal communications strategy, its structure and resource requirement. The strategy will help connect the business as it develops globally."

Patrick O'Sullivan - chair of Old Mutual

"John Smythe facilitated a combined executive team and board strategy offsite for us and designed a session that produced agreement on a variety of strategic opportunities which involved many opinions. He navigated the diversity of our board and executive team making sure that every voice was heard. His experience of communication and engagement in global and FTSE companies helps to ground such meetings in operational realities of delivering on the strategies. I have worked with him in many projects going back 15 plus years on using communication and engagement to deliver strategy and raise performance ."
