“Darren made business development seem simple…the team came away motivated and inspired to carry out the actions we know are needed”

Director, boutique executive recruitment.

“We would certainly recommend Darren to any business looking to supercharge their business development activities. We look forward to doing business again in future”

Assoc HR Director, European recruitment company

“We recently engaged with Darren at RSP for a two-day Business Development course for our team of consultants, and I can confidently say that it was certainly worthwhile and everyone that took part learnt something new, regardless of their experience level and time within the recruitment industry.”

The course was not only comprehensive but also incredibly practical. The content was delivered in a professional and personable manner and Darren’s extensive experience and knowledge base was key to this. With a strong focus on interactive learning and group activities the team were fully engaged throughout and since completing the training sessions, I have seen a positive improvement across the team with their approach and energy to business development and feel that they are certainly better equipped to build meaningful relationships with clients and tackle the challenges of the business development landscape.

Without a doubt I would recommend Darren and RSP to any organisation looking to improve their teams BD activity, and success levels regardless of their experience within the industry.”

Head of Life Sciences, Executive Recruitment

“We were introduced to Darren by a mutual connection, the best place for a new friendship to start (in my experience).  Darren has always been a re-assuring supporter and business development advisor backing us from the wings to press forward with our mission and passion for what we do.  He always has the right words, the appropriate turn of phrase and has a gently persuasive style which yields great results.  I can thoroughly recommend his approach to anyone who seeks expert strategic business development support – 10/10!”
