We have served the local business and private community for the past four decades and witnessed many changes both in the financial sector and the insurance market.

Val McKie – People Development Expert
In life we face many choices and through the decisions we make we create a pattern which becomes a template for future decisions. In business we do the same. In order to grow ourselves and grow our businesses we need to occasionally take time to reflect on our experiences and on whether the logic we are using is still valid for the present and the future. What may have stood us in good stead in the past may not now be as relevant. Whether we like it or not there is emotion behind all of the decisions that we make. Facing this fact in the business world can sometimes be a challenge. A better understanding of ourselves and others can facilitate this process, improving communication at all levels and bringing greater productivity.
Val McKie has worked for many years helping business leaders not just improve company performance but also provides them with an independent ‘sounding board’ through which unthought of possibilities have become real. She has worked in businesses of all sizes both locally and globally. She currently provides coaching and mentorship support to clients in Australia, Canada, France, Germany and Plymouth.
Val’s focus is on people issues and the factors that drive and motivate them. She utilises leading edge Behavioural Analysis and Values tools to support her in her work. It has been said that 15 minutes with Val can be transformational.
“It’s not often that ten minutes changes your slant on life but that is what Val did to me. She was able to know something about me that even I didn’t realise and, as a consequence, I tweaked my course on life’s journey and have been eternally grateful to her ever since. Bright Lady, always talk sense and is always worth listening too.” – Phil Hesketh, Author and Motivational Speaker
PIG are delighted to have her on board as their principal people development expert
