What businesses are saying…


In NTMA we are on a journey to become a best in class public sector employer that invests in its staff and in long term sustainability. We are partnering with Change by Degrees as part of this process to develop a Green Strategy for the business and to engage and educate our staff. Benefitting from the expertise, energy and vision that Madeleine and Tara bring to the table, we aim to maximise our positive impacts on the environment and society, building on the leadership we have given to date

We decided to engage the services of Change by Degrees after hearing about them through a seminar our sister attended. The consultation with Madeleine proved to be extremely worthwhile and informative whilst carried out in a relaxed & non-judgemental way. We have since put into practice some of the reports findings based on our particular business which we will build on over time. Some very easy changes to make in there which means we can all make a differerence no matter how small.

Tara and Madeleine at Change by Degrees facilitated a workshop for DRCD at the national Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs) networking event in November 2019. The workshop was interesting and engaging and provided practical information for participants on what they could do to contribute to addressing the issue of Climate Change in their lives and their communities. Feedback from the event was very positive and we wouldn’t hesitate to have them facilitate similar workshops in the future.

Cork Chamber

At Cork Chamber we have worked closely with Change by Degrees to bring independent and informed insight to our sustainability programme at Board level, with the team and among members. Madeleine and Tara bring a wealth of knowledge, passion and energy to this most critical of subjects for all of business and society. I look forward to continuing to work with them.

The Panel

Both Madeline and Tara did a fantastic presentation on Sustainability at The Panel offices recently. Their business, Change by Degrees, is a brilliant concept. Their presentation was very informative and engaging with a mix of slides, short videos, gamification and Q&A. My eyes were opened on a number of subjects, what goes into the green bin, how misleading some labeling is on packaging, positive changes we can all make and hope! The Change by Degrees presentation was one of the most popular team events we had. Madeline and Tara’s skillful engagement made it fun instead of “preachy” and I would highly recommend other businesses to engage them to present to their teams. It will be time very well spent!
