Giants in residence

Roger Longden


Roger is great at helping ambitious & creative businesses develop high-growth strategies and then align and engage their people, their teams and their organisation to deliver them. He’s passionate about how business priorities are translated into daily performance in the workplace, so much so, he completed two years of research for his white paper “Priming for Performance” and now guest lectures at MMU Business School on the subject.

Clients find his Plan/Align/Engage/Lead approach helps them to structure their planning, without losing their agility. He places values at the heart of his work with businesses, enabling them to define their own values set, and then integrate them into key business processes like recruitment, performance and reward to make sure they are attracting and retaining the people they need.

As a professionally qualified Coach, he’s built up his knowledge & expertise while working for over twenty years in diverse sectors ranging from North Sea Oil & Gas through to Motor Racing/F1, DCMS/Olympics 2012, Social Housing, Corporate, Small Business and Young Persons Secure Care. He is also an approved leadership coach for UKSport. His growing bank of 37 LinkedIN recommendations, 150+ endorsements for Leadership/management development & 99+ for his coaching are testament to the impact of his work.

When he’s not working, you will find him coaching and competing for Agecroft Rowing Club in Salford Quays. He also does voluntary coaching with Prisoners.

Gill Arnott

Gill Arnott is There Be Giants PA.  Gill has over 30 years’ experience in office management and administration, and therefore brings a wealth of Gill headshot (rachel 1)experience and organisation to the There Be Giants team.  From organising diaries to co-ordinating events Gill is there to make sure all the pieces fit.

Gill is a great believer in personal development, which fits with There Be Giants ethos. A favourite quote ~ “It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts” #John Wooden.

When Gill isn’t organising our team her home life consists of 5 cats and a husband. She’s an avid reader and spends as much time as possible with friends and family.  There’s also a tendency to throw herself out of planes and complete tough mudder courses (all in the name of charity)
