Coaching, Training and Mentoring for Private and Corporate Clients

In the past there has been a stigma around self-development, but this has dissipated over the years and now coaching is ever growing in popularity.

There are just so many benefits to self-development including:

  • Increased confidence and self-belief
  • Clarity – this may be around a certain situation or just
    generally more of a sense of purpose
  • Reduced stress
  • Better work/life balance
  • Enhanced leadership
  • Better communications

Here for all your HR challenges, no matter how large or small!

With over fifteen years HR experience, Inspire Excellence HR consultancy recognises that for many companies (and particularly smaller companies), managing people can sometimes be challenging!

As a result, it is easy to find yourself in difficulties with employees rather quickly. Additionally, without an understanding of current employment law, it can often be risky (and costly) if HR policies and practices are not executed correctly. Fear not though, this is where Inspire Excellence HR consultancy can help!

Inspire Excellence are proud to partner with breatheHR. The HR software your team will love!

By focusing on simplicity and ease of use, breatheHR is a cloud based HR software solution designed to make life easier. Keeping all your employee information in one place and automating all those time consuming human resource administrative tasks, breatheHR transforms the way you do HR.

3 steps to a post lock-down workplace

Have you noticed the subtle change in the conversations around business? The focus has shifted from survival, to future planning for survival in whatever the post Coronavirus workplace will look like. Focusing on the immediate crisis is obviously critical but looking ahead and planning for what your future will look like, that’s crucial too! In […]

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

As we see the world halt and enter a mass lockdown to slow the spread of Covid-19 it’s natural that there will be anxiety around business and fear of what the future may hold. It’s important to remember that we are all in this together, everyone across the UK, in fact the world. It’s difficult […]

About Us

We are a commercially focused HR consultancy and work with organisations of all sizes, from the micro business (less than 10 people) through to large corporate organisations.

As well as working closely with businesses to help them achieve their people strategy, Inspire Excellence HR Consultancy also works with individuals in a coaching and/or mentoring capacity to help YOU achieve your potential. This might be done through the business you work for, or it might be an individual seeking private coaching sessions to deal with personal or work challenges.

I am Krystyna and I’m the founder of Inspire Excellence HR Consultancy. I’ve spent over twenty years working with people at all levels, across a broad range of sectors. After spending a long time working for different businesses, and having been a HR Director for a large global organisation, my dream was to do something a little differently and to have my own business where I could use my experience and knowledge to work with a variety of different organisations as a trusted partner and help them achieve success!

I’ve had experience of working with organisations of all sizes from small SME’s to large global corporate organisations and I’ve worked in all capacities within HR. My  experience spans from being very hands on and operational, through to sitting in board meetings and being key in setting the strategic direction and people strategy for the Company. 

Integrity is at the core of everything we do at Inspire Excellence, and with a forward thinking approach and a drive to provide comprehensive, high quality services, Inspire Excellence is well placed to help your organisation.

“Krystyna has worked with me over the last six years on a variety of focus areas. Initially she offered HR guidance, often on a day to day level helping me become the best version of myself. She gave advice and shared techniques to allow me to develop myself personally which in turn lead to success in my career.

Following on from this, I really trusted her and felt I could open up a bit more which then lead to her helping me with some more personal issues. She helped me open up and see the root of some of my feelings and challenges and over different types of sessions helped me deal with and work through them rather than just hiding them away.

She helped me understand myself better and find clarity in areas I had struggled with for a long time. Our most recent journey together involved her support initially on a HR guidance situation, however as always, she goes the extra mile and also became a personal support giving me additional perspective on the situation helping me work through it in the best possible way from start to finish.

I would happily recommend Krystyna to anyone looking for support on anything HR related to those looking to work on themselves or others for personal and professional development too.”

C Bird Senior Account Manager, ITG

“Krystyna is down to earth and I have found her easy to work with through a number of challenging organisational situations including staff transfers, restructures and complex employment cases.

Krystyna achieves commercial outcomes and hasn’t been afraid to do things a bit differently in order to achieve the right business result, showing effective balance between real world HR, employment regulation, and commercial business interests”

M Huddleston Partner, OTB Eveling

“Krystyna knows how to help you get the best out of yourself. She has a calm and warm manner, balanced with curiosity and challenge. I always feel at ease when I am with her and I have found our discussions extremely rewarding.

Krystyna helps me to identify what my priorities are and how I can address them, and she’s also a great sounding board. Krystyna has a deep and extensive knowledge of HR & employment legislation and has always provided me sound and realistic advice.

Krystyna has supported me through significant life and career decisions, and I now class her a trusted friend. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone.”

RK Public Service Provider

“Krys is a strong HR leader, who is knowledgeable about all areas of employment law and provides clear direction and guidance to her direct reports and business partners.

She is well respected by all levels of management for her personal expertise and the coaching approach that enables her to bring out the best in others.”

K Tomlinson People Development Evangelist

“During my 3 years with the business, Krystyna played an instrumental part in helping me manage the BAU HR needs of the business, delivering pragmatic HR solutions and advice to help get the best from the operation and team.

Krystyna’s council was both sought, valued and trusted as an HR specialist, enabling me to ensure that the business operated in a legally compliant way, providing sound guidance for a range of HR issues and considerations.

Further to delivering BAU HR into the business, I worked closely with Krystyna on a number of strategic projects aimed at enriching the culture and developing the talent within the team. Krystyna always impressed me with her top down thinking approach whilst working on these projects; able to clearly see the big picture, the desired outcomes, and work backwards from those to identify the key actions needed.

More than all these however, Krystyna’s key strength for me, lays in her ability to make HR work for the business that she’s in and it’s that ability to apply her wide generalist HR knowledge to fit the business operating model, that truly sets Krystyna apart from all other HR Professionals I’ve worked with over the years.”

L Cowell Operations Director

“Excellent HR consultant – has provided my companies with grounded, risk averse and effective HR policy and services. She’s helped us avoid many potential disasters by planning ahead, and when problems arise, helped us overcome potential liabilities and costs. Highly recommended – a real pearl.”

V Samios Country Manager and Director at Portanova UK Ltd

“Krystyna is a very experienced HR professional with a can do attitude and excellent employment law knowledge. She is commercially aware and works with managers to achieve the best result.”

P Pitt HR Manager

“On a recent project Krystyna was engaged to oversea operational HR in an area of the business that required excellent organisational skills as being able to support line managers with their HR responsibilities. She supported the transition of paper based HR onto a HRIS platform which enabled more accurate reporting. Krystyna is an extremely knowledgeable HR professional with a calm approach to the task in hand. She is totally reliable and executes her responsibilities in an efficient manner. She has an engaging style and I found her collaborative approach extremely helpful. I look forward to working with Krystyna on other projects.”

L Harper HR Consultant

“The year that I worked with Krystyna I have found fer to be an extremely focused and committed HR/Business professional. I have been impressed by her approach to solve business problems related to people at work. She comes up with newer perspectives and she proposes solutions that are creative as well as aimed at solving issues on a long-term basis. Another attribute of Krystyna that gives her an edge is her ability to keep her head high in challenging situations and move things forward.”

Avesh Senior Vice President, HGS

“We have been working with Krystyna for some time, she has worked closely with us to refine and develop our internal systems as well as improving our HR compliance. Krystyna has made a number of significant positive changes to how we work with our people, and has not been afraid to challenge us and question how we operate so improvements can be made to how we do things. She gives honest straight forward advice and has always been available to speak to or attend our stores. We believe we made the right move changing our HR advisors and moving the business to Krystyna.”

M Loseby Head of Retail

“Easy to work with quickly understood a very complex brief Deal with difficult employe with union representation and delivered a cast iron outcome on time in full”

D Cooper Group HR Manager - at Doric Group

“Krystyna provided HR consultancy works during a period of rapid change in the organisation, I would highly recommend her in all aspects.”


“Krystyna provided HR consultancy services to our organisation on a complex change programme. She was professional, detailed, focused and customer driven in all aspects. I highly recommend her services.”

M Tasker Energy Sector Senior HR Business Partner, HR Manager, Employee Relations Specialist

“Krystyna is an absolute breath of fresh air. She has fantastic knowledge of all things HR and offers expert advice and practical solutions. She fit into our team from day one and never felt like a ‘consultant’ – I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and look forward to working with her again in the future.”
