We are delighted to have The GC Index, Freeths, Council Advertising Network, Seymour John Public Services and Lumesse as sponsors for the LA Challenge,

The GC Index® is an orgonometric that helps leaders understand how individuals contribute to their organisation, teams or projects. It focuses on individual and collective impact regardless of gender, personality, race, age, level or any other box people generally get put into.

The GC Index® is truly revolutionising the way that organisations assess and develop their talent. It is the only assessment tool of its kind and is challenging the traditional methods that are currently attempting to address the issues of diversity, globalisation and innovation within our organisations…and it’s succeeding.

What We Propose
We propose to elevate organisations through the creation of game-changing teams and cultures.

What We Believe
Not everyone is a Game Changer but everyone can make a game-changing contribution.

The Council Advertising Network (CAN) helps the public sector access the latest advertising and audience tech. CAN starts by generating income for you from brand safe advertising placed on your website. Once we have grown your budget,  we help you place targeted campaigns on the sites your potential candidates are using (reach 90+% of any target audience). Our latest service, govDMP lets you store website and campaign audiences to use again in the future (reduce marketing costs). Everything we do is low cost, free or income generating.

As a talent ally, serving the public and not for profit sectors, Seymour John Public Services is pleased to sponsor this year’s LA Challenge. We believe that where people flourish, organisations thrive. Ours is a business built on getting the best out of the people we work with – our clients’, our candidates, each other – which is why we support innovative events, like this, which encourage personal development and enhanced teamworking. The equation is simple: people who are in the right role and who are engaged, motivated and empowered are more productive, creative and effective.

We complement the services of WME through our specialist search and selection consultancy for CEOs, CFOs, CTOs and CISOs, helping organisations attract, develop and retain visionary leaders to oversee their change and transformation agendas. As public sector experts, our partners look to us to guide them through the complexities of regulation and compliance, benefiting from innovative initiatives like our recently developed IR35 consultancy model.
