Our Story
Hurst Smith Consulting was founded on the strong belief that a highly effective and motivated team is critical to building a successful and sustainable business.

A recognition that business leaders are often focused on clients or commercials and need expert advice and guidance to ensure that the people agenda is aligned with their business goals.

Expertise in ensuring businesses have a strong USP in their approach to attracting and retaining talent – that they have the right people in the right roles; that teams have the skills and support they need; that employees are engaged and well rewarded; that individuals’ careers flourish in conjunction with business goals and last but not least that everyone wants to come into work everyday.

In the words of the very wise (and pretty successful) Richard Branson

“Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don't want to”.

“Niki has been working in a consulting capacity with Stott and May for a few months now as we needed an external facilitator to help us put together a strategy and plan specifically within our People and Performance team. Niki’s approach so far has been incredibly insightful and even after the first session of brainstorming and planning, we came away feeling like we’d started to get clarity. Whilst approaching things in a professional manner, Niki is also very personable and whether it be group or one to one work, she creates a relaxed environment that enables people to think and innovate.”
