Change happens when we remove the barriers – both seen and unseen. Find out how we target systemic blockages with our Three Barriers Model to create gender-balanced leadership teams.



We give targeted help where it’s needed through our Three Barriers Diagnostic, gender equity consulting, Women’s Breakthrough Programmes and coaching. All of our work follows a six-step approach to creating a climate for change, then enabling and sustaining that change.

As a volunteer-led Employee Resource Group, we were excited to have Sharon Peake speak at our recent conference on the Barriers to Career Progression. The response from our members was overwhelmingly positive, and we received feedback on how interesting and insightful the session was. Sharon’s delivery was highly engaging, and relatable to our entire audience. The combination of extensive research and real-world advice formed the basis of continued discussion after the event. Overall a fantastic session.

Helen Wadhwani, Co-Chair Gender Equity in Leadership and Learning network

Sharon is incredibly helpful and her session went down extremely well… She delivered 100 percent to that brief in a very uncomplicated, easy to work with way.

Diana Roper, HR Director, Organisation Effectiveness, Openreach

We have worked with Shape Talent over the last few years. Sharon has provided expert advice in relation to our inclusion and diversity agenda and our talent model. She brings not only expertise but leading edge insights on a range of topics around I&D, and her experience in talent management means her advice and support aligns inclusion and diversity with the talent agenda. I would absolutely recommend Shape Talent.

Ollie Roberts, Chief HR Officer, BMI

I rate Shape Talent 10/10: it's the honesty, the work ethic, the professionalism, the quality.

Guy Cohen, VP of Talent & OD, TT Electronics

What was different about Shape Talent was the experience was always good… It was always spot on.

Rosario Saud, Head of Performance & Career Enablement, Ericsson

Shape Talent come with a strong point of view and they have rigour in the way that they want to take on the challenge. They're extremely organised and they are very reliable. They deliver with high and consistent quality and they are very easy to deal with.

Per Carlsson, Head of Executive Leadership Development, Ericsson

From that first call, I thought she gets it. There are many companies that are offering work in this space now. But what I loved about Sharon is that very boutique feel. She really wanted to listen and understand. And she really, really specialises just in this space. That for me was what won her through. We saw three different people in the procurement process, and we selected Sharon.

Steph Lewis, Former Global HR VP, Strategic Projects, Beiersdorf

10/10 – I would not hesitate to recommend Sharon to anyone.

Ollie Roberts, CHRO, BMI Group

What you're always going to get with Sharon is somebody who has rigour, who has done the reading and the evidence trail and can speak about it confidently. She really comes across as an expert and won't ever give anything that's not of a really good quality.
