Sabre Tooth Panda is run full time by Aran Rees with product development support from Ladina Rees and our resident wellness at work expert is Sarah Seymour. When necessary we call in a small team of associates who can help us with additional expertise or to take on larger jobs.
"I'm the simplicity guy. I help people do the things that, even though they’re simple, aren’t always easy; like staying authentic, self aware and playful or noticing when a limiting belief is getting in the way. That’s how I help my clients get creative. Because creativity's hard, not complicated."
Aran works with individuals and groups using a combination of coaching techniques, mindfulness, games, and personalised brain training regimes. He consults, coaches and collaborates with every one of his clients to ensure the end result is something that comes from them, but that they’d never have thought would come from them before.
Aran is the Founder of Sabre Tooth Panda. He runs the No Wrong Answers pub quiz and produces the No Wrong Answers podcast and blog.
"I love big, messy problems, and making them neat and tidy. And I love creativity. So I help turn the messy stuff in creativity into simple stuff that Sabre Tooth Panda can use to help clients. After years of work in process change, facilitating massive workshops and shepherding global re-organisations I'm used to making messy things look easy."
Ladina is an experienced Lean practitioner and business strategist with a Masters in Creativity and Change from Buffalo State University of New York. She has over a decade of experience delivering large scale business change operations in the IT industry working between business functions and technical capabilities as well as designing and delivering training and development to leaders at all levels.
"I care about helping people to get more from their working life by bringing more of themselves to their jobs. This requires a values-based approach, exploring what motivates people, what their strengths are and where they’re limiting themselves. As well as one-to-one work, I also deliver workshops on topics like stress management, work-life balance and happiness at work."
