What our clients have to say

We have been working with Aephoria to develop our leadership and managerial capacity since 2011.  What I enjoy about their work is the directness and authenticity, of their facilitators and of their developmental processes.  Time and again I hear stories of deep awareness building and life transformation from people who have attended an Aephoria programme.  And what I have personally always appreciated about Simon and Julia is their commitment to our business and their willingness and capacity to build a long-lasting relationship of trust with me over many years.

Chwayita Mareka, General Manager HR, Engen Petroleum Ltd

I have worked with Julia and Simon regularly over the past few years, while heading up Learning and Development for a major mining company and in my role as a university lecturer.  The team was a hit with a diverse range of people, some of whom do not talk easily about their own personal feelings and growth.  We received excellent feedback from our Line Managers on their engagements with Simon and Julia and they also reported very positive changes in the leadership behaviour of many of their direct reports, which they attributed to the Leadership Development programme that Simon and Julia were facilitating.

When they worked on ‘Insight Discussions’ with our Executives, during a very turbulent period, I received very positive feedback on the value that Simon and Julia had added to their perspectives.  Recently, Simon and Julia facilitated a guest seminar with students on a post-graduate course in Psychology and again, I received very positive feedback from the students – who now ask regularly when Simon and Julia are coming back.  I also have to note that the Aephoria team donated their time and travelled here at their cost, to do this.  They are endlessly patient, always attentive and very skilled at what they do.

Dr Grant Freedman, Senior Lecturer Organisational Psychology, Rhodes University

I have been working with Aephoria for over five years, both in South Africa and now more recently across our Middle East and North African markets.  I have personally commissioned Aephoria to run leadership programmes, team development sessions and individual executive coaching, which is testament to the rich range of services and experiences they have to offer.

Our region and our organisation is full of diversity, certainly of race and culture but also of personality and maturity.  What I love about Aephoria’s work is that they are not shy to help us tackle some of these thorny issues that lead us into difference – they ‘call’ the behaviour in a respectful and gentle way…but they still call it!   At the end of the day, that has helped us to be better leaders and better people.
