A few of your fruitful people

There are few people in your career that truly inspire, challenge and develop you. Heidi is one of those few people that has had a significant impact on my career as a HR leader.

Craig Heaney

Head of Learning and Talent Development, British Gas

Heidi Blakeway

Director (DiSC Style I)

Before my Fruitful life, I worked in HR & Learning & Development roles for large corporates such as Marks & Spencer, IKEA and npower, and other smaller businesses too. I’ve always been fascinated by psychometric profiling and passionate about investing in people to ensure that they are motivated and driven in their role.

I am now able to share this knowledge and experience with you. It’s my job to help you achieve certification and then continue to help you get the best from the powerful Everything DiSC family.

From sitting on both sides of the fence, I am well placed to understand what you need as a facilitator or a client. And, because I’ve experienced the issues you are likely to face I can help you to design and deliver engaging, interactive programmes that get results.

My i DiSC style means I naturally inspire and energise participants by making sure that programmes are enjoyable and upbeat. I’m all about people so welcoming new facilitators to the Fruitful family and connecting people is what I do best.

As you’ve probably guessed I really love working with new people and clients – I’m looking forward to meeting you already!

George Blakeway

Director (DiSC style DI)

In addition to working with The Fruitful Toolbox, I manage The Fruitful Group, which includes two learning and development consultancies – Fruitful Developments (Leadership, Management and Teams) and Fruitful Selling (Sales Performance).

My extensive experience of DiSC is a great help when designing of our own certification programmes. And, I am also on hand to help our learning and development professionals to design and deliver sessions for their own clients or organisations.

After commissioning as an Army Officer from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst my military career soon lead to commercials roles; firstly in the oil industry and subsequently Coca-Cola. To this diverse background you can also add the badge of a semi-professional rugby player and Captain of Worcester Warriors. I’m certainly not one to just sit back and relax!

As a high ID style, I’m pretty active and pioneering. People of my style also tend to be self-starters, which may explain why I left corporate life to set up Fruitful in 2002 and have since worked with organisations such as Barclays, Sky, British Gas, Marriott Hotels, Deutsche Bank, Lego and the NHS. My work takes me all over the world including the Middle-East, Asia and Africa, so a love of travel comes in very handy.

In addition to Everything DiSC, I also sport an honours degree in Management Science, Diplomas in Marketing and Industrial Studies and am qualified in MBTI and SDI. So, my diverse experience is a huge asset to the Fruitful family.

Lisa Dawson

Business Relationship Manager (DiSC Style D)

Before joining the Fruitful team in February 2016 I studied Psychology at the University of Worcester and successfully graduated in 2014 with a First Degree. I then applied for a place on a HEFCE funded programme to study towards an Executive MBA in Leadership and Management. Following a rigorous interview process I began my studies in September 2014 whilst working full-time as Digital Communications Administrator for Premier Places Lettings Agency. Over the past 18 months I have studied a wide range of topics across Leadership and Management giving me the ability to translate organisational strategy into effective performance. I also combined my studies with a full-time role as Senior Departmental Administrator at the University of Worcester Business School supporting the Business Development Team.

I now support the Fruitful Team by helping to grow the business and all that Fruitful has to offer but most importantly supporting all our fantastic Certified Facilitators. My high D DiSC style means I am efficient, work at a fast pace, and love getting things done! I like to hit the ground running, learn everything and I am keen to get up to speed with everyone and everything as a soon as possible. I am easy to get on with, straightforward and I love to over-come challenges. I value genuine relationships and look forward to building many of these within the Fruitful family.

We're ready to help!

Here at Fruitful, we certify, up-skill, train and support Leaders and Learning & Development professionals to fully understand the DiSC profiles, ensuring they benefit from their application. So, if you're an L&D Professional responsible for the people development within your organisation, working independently within an L&D business or within a training consultancy, we'd love to hear from you.
