Working with Brightside combines the benefits of working with a consultant but feels like working with a close colleague. Karran really works to understand your company and goals. Karran is passionate about developing people and this is evidenced by her commitment to following up post training sessions and her genuine desire to make a difference and support teams to drive company performance.Lynne Anderson, HR and Training Consultant at Alliance Trust
I had the pleasure of working with Karran while in my current role at Abbott Healthcare as a Territory Manager. I have aspirations to move into leadership roles in the near future, Karran was chosen to work with me as she is highly valued and respected by my senior management team. On the first session with Karran immediately she had my attention as I could see the value and my personal gains within the first 10 minutes. The reason for this was due to Karrans vast experience, natural ability to be fluid as the programme was completely tailored to me. Brightside is a fantastic business and Karran brings this to life through here desire to understand her clients and deliver back what they need to move their business forward.Brenton Williams, Territory Manager at Abbott Established Pharmaceuticals
Karran is emotionally intelligent and takes time to identify the company’s or individual’s needs before producing a highly effective solution. She then absolutely delivers and follows up and produces results. No hesitation in recommending Karran.Amyn Fazal, NED at Eden Arts & Mutual Vision Technologies, CEO at Penrith Building Society
Karran continues to provide me with great advice and fantastic insight on how to get the best out of myself and my team.
She combines enthusiasm and verve with a considered and pragmatic approach and I would have no hesitation in recommending Karran to help you brighten your business!Louise Watt, Operations Manager at Penrith Building Society
Karran and I have been working together for a number of months. She has helped me build confidence within my role and within my team. Karran’s help and guidance has been invaluable to me. She has always been available to support me through the “wobbles” and the more challenging tasks providing tremendous advice and encouragement at all times.
We have completed a number of half day training sessions for the whole staff and I certainly couldn’t have achieved all of this without her guidance.  I am looking forward to continuing our work together and feel she is now not only an invaluable source of support and information but also a friend. I cannot recommend her highly enough.Fiona Askins, Head Of Savings & Branch Manager at Penrith Building Society
Karran is trustworthy, full of enthusiasm and a very experienced Business Coach and Trainer. Karran is 100% focussed on her clients’ needs. She had a dramatic impact on me, raising my self awareness of areas I can change and improve to make things easier in my coaching business. She also works from the heart, tuning into the core of the issue you want to work on and she is full of inspiration and truly “bright” ideas which can only help your business flourish. I thoroughly endorse Karran.Susan Coull, Executive Coach at Coull Coaching
Karran picked up on the opportunities for our existing and new businesses and provided some really interesting and useful insights. I know from my football background that a coach shouldn’t just ‘tell you the answer’ but should prompt you to find your own answers for your own situation. Only one meeting and I’m definitely refocused – great work!Gordon Craigie, Freelance Writer and Education Consultant at The McIntosh Partnership Ltd
