Management Development for the Spitalfields Market Sergeants Team

We are delighted to share an article from the City of London newsletter about our work with the Sergeants team from Spitalfields Market.

Sergeant School; Period Two

Following on from a successful day at Guildhall in March 2016 Friday the 23rd June saw the sergeants and head of security from Spitalfields Market visiting Smithfield Market to get a taste of life in the big city. Following an introductory talk from Ian Dorling over a much needed coffee they were given a comprehensive tour by their opposite numbers at Smithfield followed by breakfast.

Breakfast was followed by the second part of the Sergeant’s development programme. This programme is aimed at developing their effectiveness as managers and the topics for the day included seeing how they had fared with their action plans from day one , holding successful 1-2-1’s and difficult conversations.

It is hoped that further sessions will take place at the other markets with the aim of improving everyone’s knowledge and sharing ideas on how to solve the common issues experienced by all three markets. Our thanks must go to Matthew Hill for hosting this event and Stella Chandler for facilitating the training programme.


To find out how we can help your management team fulfil their potential and build their own great teams, call us on 01903 732 782, email or take a look at our case studies to see how we have helped other organisations in a similar way.

I thrive on seeing people do things they didn’t think they could do! I draw on my management and leadership experience from working in senior positions in the Metropolitan Police Service, running Focal Point since 2002 and working across all three sectors in the widest variety of environments. I am a fellow of the CIPD and when I am not working with clients I can be seen on the golf courses of Hampshire.
