Testimonials from participants

“We were likely one of the more advanced start-ups on the PwC HR Scale programme, already having access to some funding. We still found a number of the masterclasses extremely valuable for our business, offering new ideas. The other helped confirm thoughts we’d already had, which is always comforting. I think if you’re a younger start-up, a programme like this would be invaluable to helping accelerate your growth.”

Daniel Bowen, COO and Co-Founder, Platypus.

“I’ve taken part in a number of programmes like PwC HR Scale and I found this one exceptional. The sessions that brought together multiple PwC experts from different parts of the business to offer more rounded advice and mentorship were a real highlight. They see what’s happening in industry day in day out and could combine and share their expertise and experience in a meaningful way. Having access to that knowledge on a first-hand basis and having hands-on coaching from these experts was really very valuable. It was also a great means to start building a relationship with PwC as a whole.”

“You’re never too old to learn, that’s my motto and one of the key reasons I willingly take up opportunities like attending the PwC HR programme. I also don’t believe in reinventing the wheel, so look to learn from others who’ve already devised concepts and ideas that may be of use to me. The programme was fast-paced with great content. Of particular relevance to me was lead generation in a digital world, creating a modern sales organisation and building ecosystems, topics I believe today’s businesses can’t do without. While the experience calls for an investment of time and resources, it allows you to learn quicker than you would without it and shows you where your focus should be. Having ongoing access to materials and PwC experts for guidance is a real added value too.”

“The fact that PwC contacted me to take part in the PwC HR Scale programme was flattering in and of itself. Looking into the content I could see its intrinsic value and its real relevance to my business and sector. And backed by the PwC brand, I knew it would be a high-quality offering. With that being said, I went with no real expectations, but an open mind to see what I might learn and gain from this experience. The experts were really the crème de la crème in their respective fields, both from within PwC and from outside. I also took a lot from the other participants, learning about their business models and what I could leverage to refine and boost Owiwi’s value proposition. I would certainly recommend the experience to others.”
