“We engaged with Leighton in Q1 2015 to deliver a training programme to support our managers with their competence and confidence to deal with Disciplinary Issues as he comes with a wealth of knowledge & experience in this field. The learners feedback after the first 2 deliveries of this 2 workshop product have reinforced the faith we had in this decision & his delivery skills plus knowledge. The learners intended post training actions suggest that their behaviour on return to the workplace will change within their revised responsibility for this area of the management role. We look forward to evaluating the outcomes during Q2 and placing more business with Davies Associates as our business relationship unfolds”.

Leighton has been exemplary in his advice and approach to the small businesses we have asked him to support with HR issues. The feedback from them has been extremely positive on all occasions. Leighton has a detailed understanding of all HR legislations and procedures and can apply his knowledge and advice in a sympathetic and professional manner.

Davies Associates has more than adequately filled a gap in HR expertise in our management framework. The assistance we have received on a range of HR issues (from the management of specific personnel problems to the development of broader policy) has been invaluable.  

Leighton Davies has provided fast and clear advice at times of urgency, as well as considered, well-developed training and documentation for longer term projects.  I have no hesitation in recommending this first rate service that has always been skilfully tailored to fit in with the needs of our organisation.  We retain Davies Associates’ services on a rolling annual basis.

I would highly recommend the services of Davies Associates, who are able to offer a good value for money solution to your Human Resource issues.

Our company was fortunate to have Leighton’s advice when we were faced with a staff disciplinary issue. Matters like this are never pleasant and no company looks forward to having to deal with them. Leighton’s guidance made the situation a lot easier, his understanding of legislation and procedure is second to none and the advice that he gave more than equipped us to deal with the problem that we faced.


We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Leighton and his services. His knowledge of employment legislation is excellent and current and he is able to communicate this knowledge effectively. We have been so impressed by his abilities we are now recommending him to our clients.

“Inroads is an agency working with people who have drug or Alcohol Problems. We are based in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan and employ staff in Cardiff and Barry offices.

As trustees we became aware that we needed ongoing HR support with Human Resource and employment issues and contacted Leighton for help. This made a significant difference to our organisation. Leighton worked with the management, giving advice and using his extensive knowledge and experience on a recent employment issues, and is also currently up-dating our policies and procedures in the form of an Employee Handbook.

We have been impressed with his thoroughness and swift communication when necessary, and also his flexibility and willingness to explain procedures to those of us who do not work in this field. We have therefore retained his services for ongoing advice as and when it is needed and this has brought reassurance to the organisation that we have expertise at hand to deal with complex staff issues. It has also released some valuable time for Managers and trustees who otherwise would have to do onerous work up-dating employment policies.

As a result of our experience with Leighton’s work, we are happy to recommend his services to other organisations”.
