New business venture off at a cantor

2021 has been a year of change for Penkridge based mum of three Julia Jones who has stepped off the corporate merry-go-round to concentrate on building her own business that fits with her lifestyle and combines her passion for business improvement and training with her love of horses.

Julia (pictured), who has spent the last 16 years heading up training and education, most of that time spent working for a leading psychometric assessment firm, Thomas International, set up her own consultancy, Altezza People UK in March 2021.

Her new business offers business consultancy, planning, and training, specialising in leadership, teams, and sales.  Clients also have the option of engaging in ‘equine facilitation’, a method of working through challenges, self-awareness and team dynamics which involves working with horses.

“I have always loved and owned horses and so I introduced the option of equine facilitation. Horses are incredibly intuitive, picking up on emotions and reacting to how we respond in the ‘present moment’.

“As a self-employed person, being a part of the Chambers feels like you have a full support network behind you. I am always an email or call away from advice and signposting and the support and  guidance from Aly and Richard and the Chamber team is always there if I need it.”
