“Honor is very well networked within the media and entertainment industry, she takes the time to identify talent across the sector and nurtures these relationships over many years.  Not only does this approach allow her to track people through their careers, but it keeps her knowledgeable and current about the sectors in which they operate.  

Therefore, when she takes on a new assignment, she already has a deep understanding of the sector and is intimately familiar with the likely candidate pool, which allows her to skilfully place candidates with the right skill set, experience and fit into the right roles.  

In my case, Honor and I had been in touch for close to a decade before we connected on this role, which turned out to be the perfect fit for my skills, experience and interest.”

“We worked with Honor on a complex search, which concluded successfully and in record time. Honor immediately zoomed in on what was most important in the role and challenged us to create the same focus. Her expertise in the complex and rapidly evolving work of media is unrivalled, and that comes across not only in her contacts but also her ability to think laterally and suggest talent and strategies that serve the future of our business not just the present. She marries this expertise with complete rigour on process and diligence on talent profiles and references which allows the process to be both fast but also highly detailed. And equally importantly she is hugely empathetic, seeking to really understand the people behind the searches, both the candidates and hiring managers/stakeholders.”

“I have known and worked with Honor for more than ten years.  She is a fantastic person to work with and has partnered with me on a range of senior executive searches.  Her work is exemplary  - she has a deep knowledge of the media industry and gets to really know and understand the companies she works with.  Honor is someone you can trust to get the job done.  She works tirelessly on all aspects of executive search providing insightful and sincere advice at all times. 

If I have a search need Honor is the first person I think of to call!”

“Honor and her team are that rare thing – a hardworking, focused and skilful team, who care about the quality that they deliver and offer a truly bespoke and personalised service.  Honor’s personal knowledge of the industry means that she can be truly creative about where she looks for the right candidates and she leaves no stone unturned until she has delivered. Kynigos has successfully helped us fill two positions and I won’t hesitate to come back to Honor and her team for our future hires.”

“When Honor first contacted me regarding an executive position, I was immediately impressed with her in depth knowledge of the sector and ability to provide wider context about the opportunity.  Her candidate briefings were as expected, detailed and thorough, but what sets her apart is her nuanced knowledge around culture, talent and organisational behaviours, allowing you to better prepare for each meeting.

Her commitment to onboarding new candidates is second to none as she readily taps into her executive network to make introductions, and in doing so helps fill knowledge gaps prior to commencing a new executive position.”
