The Open Channel


The Open Channel can help you when:

  • You need support for large scale transformational change
  • You want to get the best out of your organisation and your people
  • You want to help individuals and teams to find a positive route through change

‘We only believe in the possible’

Our approach is based on the view that people and organisations are inherently strong and capable and that supporting strengths in times of change is a positive and more sustainable way to lead.

Steve Loraine and Janet Dean draw on substantial experience as Directors in public sector service delivery as well as success as independent advisers to local and national bodies, voluntary and community organisations and private clients. We are trained and experienced in a range of organisational development techniques which complement, but can never replace, our deep personal experience.

When you need it we will back you up with our full Face to Face Support Service, tailored so that you invest your money in the things you really need. We can stay with you as long as you like, but our aim is to get you to a stage where you don’t need us because we’ve provided the right kind of support in the first place.

Join our Knowledge Network where we bring together like minded professionals to debate and discuss the challenges of the day at lunchtime and evening city seminars. We can also facilitate and provide reportage at your conferences and events. We like to keep in touch and can connect you with our international community of leadership experts.
