“Dr Micah Coston, Head of Practice, Innovation in Education of the Spencer Group, is the epitome of an executive recruiter. He masterfully negotiates the complex dance between the recruiting organization and candidate, never once losing sight of the goals and needs of both sides of the equation. But his brilliance goes well beyond these abilities. He is an innovator in this space, challenging those he works with to imagine new mindsets and possibilities. Micah was instrumental in evolving and crafting my dream position at IMD as Chief Learning Innovation Officer, where I will be imagining and developing the next state-of-the art in education.”

From the outset, Micah demonstrated a deep understanding of our needs and of our unique culture and the innovation needs at IMD.  He provided invaluable advice and regular guidance throughout the search process, and his partnership approach ensured that we felt fully involved and informed at every stage. The candidates that he brought forward made the final choice difficult which is a witness to the quality network the Spencer Group has.”

“Sannam S4 has been through a really exciting business transformation since mid 2020 which required us to appoint a new Global Managing Director based in Singapore and an Executive Director for the UK/EU for our education business. Both of these roles were fulfilled successfully, at the first attempt by Julian Minett and the Spencer Group. What I particularly appreciated working with Julian and his team is that you are not just entering an executive search exercise, but you are going on a professional development, sector insight and highly strategic process. The holistic value proposition Julian and his team offer is genuinely unrivalled and has had a hugely positive impact on Sannam S4. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Julian Minett and the Spencer Group for the accolades they deserve.”
