We have been on an incredible journey that actually started back in the late 1990's...
Our founder, Danny Gray gained his real understanding of people development working for Orange, one of the world most loved brands. Frustrated by the poor quality of external support offered to the business Danny set out to build a revolutionary business.
A company that would set high standards, deliver true customer excellence and most importantly of all, deliver on its promises day in, day out.
Our Guiding Principles
Intel Insight: Our Story
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
In 1997, our founder Danny trained to be a sports coach. Unbeknown to him, 4 years later he would be accepting a job as an operational trainer working for Orange.
His career grew swiftly, soon managing a large training function and a pretty hefty training budget that he would use to ‘buy in’ external support to help people in the business.
Danny was constantly disappointed in the outcome from such expenditure. The business would be promised the earth by a supplier but in truth what was delivered was often little over average.
In early 2011 Danny decided to leave Orange and set up his own training consultancy; Xtreme Learning Limited. The mission was clear… to be a leading training provider that delivers on its promises.
It was in a matter of months that Danny and wife Suzy realised that the name of the business was not a strong representation of what stood for. Mid 2011 and Sixth Sense Learning became the new brand.
Sixth Sense was much stronger, delving into the thinking that our primary 5 senses; taste, smell, touch, sound and sight were heavily influenced by our sixth sense; attitude.
Sixth Sense grew and became a well know business inside many organisations. It also diversified outside of businesses and began to work in communities delivering a mindset shifting programme to unemployed people called Choices.
As time has passed by, the work Sixth Sense got involved with started to focus heavily on employee engagement.
It was apparent that if you don’t understand what is working for your people, and of course what is not it is very hard to develop anyone in the business in the right way.
It is a 3 part process:
- Understand engagement
- Help managers and leaders adapt
- Support the business as it evolves
Sixth Sense became exceptionally good at following this process.
In 2020 following the global pandemic, it was decided that we wanted to ramp up our activity surrounding engagement.
We decided to separate Choices as a separate entity and launch our new, refreshed brand; Intel Insight. An intelligence insight driven employee engagement solution business.
Intel insight delivers simple engagement surveys using a unique i20 framework that provides critical data on the business and its people. We use that and our partnership with Pti Worldwide to advise and support the business to make great decisions that ultimately affect their people leading to increased morale, motivation and productivity.
