JCA Consult is an established coaching and engagement product, based around social and emotional health and the impact environmental conditions can have on the psychological wellbeing and productivity of an individual or team.
The work is based on owner Jane Anderson’s PhD research into Place Affected Organisational Change and will be rolled forward to assist organisations prepare and maintain the wellbeing of its workforce.
Jane contacted RTC’s Pathways 2 Innovation team approximately four months ago as she was looking to explore potential routes to developing and growing JCA Consult Ltd.
She said: “I required support with research into NHS staff development and finding Continuing Professional Development (CPD) contacts nationally as this is one of the potential markets for JCA Consult.
“RTC provided me with a very comprehensive response to my research request. I have only begun to scratch the surface of the results.”
Our Business Innovation and Growth Managers provided Jane with details of key conferences Jane may wish to speak at nationally, up-to-date list of Training and HR professionals and key contacts in NHS regionally.
They also introduced her to professional Guide Point Consultancy professionals which will allow Jane to build up hourly consultancy clients and business and arranged a meeting with Intellectual Property (IP) Attorney to discuss Companies IP and specifically use of video and potential impacts on company IP.
“The support received from RTC has been a tremendous help to me. I am already following through this research by expanding my business reach and profile. I am very grateful for the all that RTC has done to support my business.”
