Chrysalis Consulting Ltd


Initially born out of frustration of ‘old school’ HR practices and unethical consultants, Chrysalis Consulting was born in 2013 with a mission to do things differently founded by Kelly Swingler.

Kelly has successfully delivered strategic change across a range of sectors, including retail, finance, legal and housing.

Her work with names such as the John Lewis Partnership, leading housing association Genesis and The Sunday Times 100 Luminus Group, spans every aspect of HR, from employee engagement and leadership development to   enhanced processes and culture change. 

Kelly’s appointment as the UK’s youngest HR director in 2011, is evidence for her breadth of experience and proactive approach.

She has particular expertise with organisations of between 2,000 and 10,000 employees.  As you’ll see from Chrysalis Consulting’s our work page, she’s able to bring clarity to complex scenarios, where  clients are dealing with several HR issues at once.  

At this scale, Kelly draws on her extensive experience to design programmes which allow her clients to tackle these challenges in the right order and to a time frame that suits their budget.

Underpinning this meticulous approach is a conviction that sustainable change only comes when organisations invest in the development and wellbeing of their teams at every level, from executive directors to frontline staff.  When  people are committed and motivated, they’ll deliver better results: increased customer satisfaction, increased performance and ultimately increased profits.  

This is why many of the organisations Kelly has worked with have accreditations such as liP Ambassador status, Best Companies, Sunday Times 100 and CIPD awards.

Kelly herself is constantly building up her own expertise, testing new ideas and approaches which she can use to the advantage of her clients.  A member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (MCIPD), she’s currently studying for a BSc in psychology, to add to the qualifications she holds in executive coaching, facilitation, organisational design and development and project management.

If you’re keen for your organisation to move forward and would like to explore possible options, give Kelly a call today on 01733 865 426 or email her at [email protected].   She’ll be delighted to help.

When your teams are going through change, you’re often juggling several issues at once.   That’s why we offer a range of services and workshops. 

We’ll shape them to meet your priorities and deliver them at your pace.
