Couravel was founded in 2001 by Mike Pounsford. Mike works internationally with leadership teams and specialists in HR, Communication and Organisation Development. His focus involves communication and engagement strategies, bringing strategy to life, and developing the organisation’s capability to lead change.

His work has won international recognition from industry groups such as the International Association of Business Communicators and from within organisations including the Global Gold Award for BAE Systems Chairman’s Award for Innovation – the first time a people and communication related project won this distinction.

Mike works with associates when required to support projects. These represent long-standing relationships with colleagues with similar or complementary skills.

Before setting up Couravel Mike worked at Towers Watson (Towers Perrin) and Alexander Consulting Group. In 1996 he founded Banner McBride - WPP Group’s first start up – working with the leadership of Enterprise IG and Hill & Knowlton to grow it to a team of 40 in London and New York in 5 years.

“I have to say I am really blown away by the latest thinking re vision, mission and objectives. I think they are great, and that it is really good that you have managed to consult with the wider management to bring them into this process. I think the whole process and outputs to date are a really big achievement!”

Human Resources Director, ABRSM
