Maria Jeffers – AQR International Business Development Manager

I have over 15 years experience consulting and advising Business Leaders within HR and Learning & Development across all sectors. My specialities include an in-depth understanding of psychometric assessments and how they apply to each stage of the employee life cycle. I am a passionate advocate of self-awareness, how we think leads to how we behave!

I have both a theoretical and practical understanding of the business issues that lead organisations to seek robust, objective and flexible approaches to their people processes. I am a licenced user of the globally evidence-based Mental Toughness Questionnaire which is my assessment of choice for real performance enhancement. I am also working towards EMCC coaching accreditation after completing the “Coaching with Purpose programme. 


My youngest daughter and I are enthusiastic horse riders and love spending time with our 3 horses. Horses are a fabulous mirror to how we feel! We really enjoy showjumping and attending local competitions.

Maria works closely with 123 People Development in partnership wtih AQR International.
