IF YOU ALWAYS DO WHAT YOU'VE ALWAYS DONE, YOU'LL ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU'VE ALWAYS GOT.

It's time to do something different...

 

Making change happen for you.

WHAT I DO

Arkle and Co is Your Guide to Unprecedented Results, delivered through personal coaching, leadership alignment, employee engagement and making change habitual.  I believe that working tirelessly to achieve four things delivers unprecedented results.  These are:

 

Trust - Transparency - Simplification - Change

 

Easily said, Hard won...but worth it.

A good coach can see what you cannot.  A good coach has lots and lots of first-hand experience from their personal and professional lives and extensive experience of working with many people focusing on helping them make changes.  I have this in spades.

There is more to us than we know. If we can be made to see it, perhaps for the rest of our lives, we will be unwilling to settle for less.

UNPRECEDENTED RESULTS ON CETUS

White Paper on achieving unprecedented results

This white-paper describes how our philosophy of Trust - Transparency - Simplification and Change made the impossible into unprecedented results in an Oil and Gas operators $4bn project.

7 months in...46 days ahead of annual AFE (23rd May to 31st Dec) a saving of £17m in this period - circa 20% ahead

£143m identified saving through engineering simplification – circa 15% with an expected additional 5% saving year on year of the project.

 

15months in... The forecast to deliver the entire project is now 1 year ahead, 25%, of the original plan and circa $310m, 23% under the original $1.3bn budget. This is the result of the momentum from the first 7 months of the project and as expected

WHAT MY CLIENTS THINK...

KIRSTEN LORD - CEO, PHYSIOMEDICS

"Managing growth is only possible when teams work together effectively, but this is extremely difficult to achieve. Or so I thought….  Iain has guided and coached us, teaching us a set of simple tools to align the team’s mutual objectives and expectations with those of the business. This has brought transparency and understanding to all members of the team and a level of support and enjoyment at work which is unprecedented in the business.  I highly recommend Iain as a leadership and change management expert with the ability to adapt to a wide variety of situations and personalities."

BARRY FRASER - CONSULTANT WELLS TEAM LEADER

"Iain has worked with me and a number of teams on several high profile major capital well construction projects in the UKCS. His ability to focus everyone’s attention on what matters in any situation has been key to unlocking the team potential for high-performance well delivery."

STEPHANIE HOWE VIOLETT - ELITE ULTRA-RUNNER, THE NORTH FACE

“Iain Menmuir.  My rock.  We just met, but Iain I feel like I’ve known you for a million years.  You stayed up all night and day to support, comfort and encourage me on my way around the mountain.  You have no idea how much that meant to me and how full of gratitude my heart is.  You are amazing and I would not have made it to Chamonix without you.”

RUSSELL BEATON - RIG MANAGER, NORTH SEA OIL AND GAS EXPLORATION

"I have had the professional pleasure of working with Iain Menmuir on a large North Sea development from the very outset of the project. Iain is highly motivated, professional and what one might call subject matter expert on human behaviour in a professional and highly dynamic environment. His resume speaks for itself - Iain has a very insightful and subtle manner in which he can influence teams to be the best they can be. If anyone wants to build a team, has dysfunctions within their team, has conflict issues, underperformance or simply wants to improve on an already high performing team Iain is extremely well placed to support and develop those teams in need."

BIO - IAIN MENMUIR

Hi, I'm Iain.  My passion is in developing and helping individuals and teams achieve unprecedented results.​  My style is pragmatic and at times provocative by establishing priorities and foundations that make a difference in a relaxed, informal yet stimulating environment.

 

I have worked in operational leadership roles and as a coach, facilitator and speaker for over 25 years in 15 different sectors of business, across 32 countries with 66 different nationalities helping thousands of people make changes that stick.

The operational leadership roles I have held have typically been in high-risk environments such as offshore oil and gas, seismic operations in Yemen and so forth, responsible for the operations and safety of hundreds of people at a time.  My career started in outdoor education at the age of 15 and a few years later in business and education.

 

My consulting interventions have been with individuals and teams helping them develop their leadership style, deal with conflict, develop their communication styles, build relationships and make their world a happier place to be.  Along with my speaking engagements I often have a hand in the design and then lead large, multi-day employee engagement workshops of hundreds of people of multiple specialisations coming together to gain consensus and commitment to a single purpose.​​

​​

My other passion is being in the mountains and deserts testing my endurance.  I regularly compete in Ultra-Trail mountain races all over the world and when not working with business clients or running somewhere you will find me delivering avalanche education from my home-base in the Chamonix valley in the French Alps.  You can have a look at some of our projects here: www.iamadventure.world
