Danielle Cousins

With over 25 years’ experience within the recruitment industry within in FTSe 100 and Aim listed companies including Capita, RSA, AXA, Eagle Star / Zurich, Mears Group, Supporta plc BT and Hyder, I have gained a huge amount of industry experience whilst specialising in Sales & Marketing in these industry sectors.

After starting my career in IT recruitment, I worked my way up to Director level through various sales management positions and then set up my own recruitment consultancy which grew to 5 branches across England & Wales placing Sales and Marketing professionals at all levels. I successfully sold that business and after a career break from recruitment (setting up and running a successful photography business) I am delighted to be back in the industry working with Nicola in Abriko Ltd.

I have passion for business, I love the recruitment industry and thrive on a challenge.

Andy Wolfe

Specialist consultant in the design and delivery of sustainable behavioural and cultural change within the FMCG / FMCH industry.

His core focus is on the mind-sets and beliefs of the people in organisations, rather than on processes and infrastructure, because he believes (and observes) that process improvement and business reorganisation, even strategy itself, is useless if people fail to engage with it.

By applying current neuroscience practice he has developed a simple five phase approach that enables clients to shape their desired organisational culture, a culture in which people engage with and execute business strategy, faster.

He provides a series of online and offline interventions that are designed to communicate and embed the desired behaviours. As a result, clients realise sustainable, measurable and cultural change.
