British Cycling manager joins Game Changer Performance

A former talent and development manager for British Cycling, who has worked with some of the world’s biggest global brands, has joined Derby-headquartered human performance specialist Game Changer Performance as director of corporate performance.

Harriet Evans, who has a track record partnering with companies to invigorate marginal gains thinking across their organisations, will steer GCP’s multi-disciplinary specialists to bring a whole-person approach to deliver change across organisations.

She will use the experience gained through working with the world’s top sporting talent and global companies to deliver development programmes for employees across all management levels to be at their best in work and in life.

Harriet, who has competed for Great Britain, worked with national governing bodies to uncover Olympic and Paralympic medal winners for GB and Australia in rowing, athletics, taekwondo, cycling, canoeing, sailing and shooting at the Beijing, London, and Rio Olympics.

“My role was to find athletes capable of winning gold medals, devising the initiatives to find the talent, often in areas previously unthought of, working with the coaches to devise the testing and monitoring of athletes, and work with the wider support team to ensure the athletes had a rounded approach to their development,” she said.

Before joining GCP Harriet spent six years as a senior consultant with management consultancy Lane4, working across industries and geographies to deliver award winning change.

“The combination of my experience in elite level sport and across the corporate sector has equipped me to join the specialists at Game Changer Performance to bring this unique service to new markets,” explained Harriet.

GCP MD Jake Keeling said: “Harriet has an impressive track record in unearthing talent and ensuring athletes reach their peak performance when it counts. This, combined with her extensive experience in using these skills with a diverse range of companies means we are confident that businesses seeking our help to improve the performance of their most valued assets will be impressed with the results they see.”
