Who we are

Everyone in Making Change Happen already has their own company and specialism. We’re a collection of change agents, coaches and psychologists who have a long track record of helping organisations with change. So together we hold all the pieces of the people-change jigsaw. And we’re backed up by a diverse network of talented people – designers, writers, creatives, psychologists and change practitioners.
