”WE REALLY CARE ABOUT PEOPLE, ORGANIZATIONS AND RESULTS” since 2003
“Along with the organisational growth came the appointment of new managers and we identified the need of a leadership program, both for the people with a new position and the ones with previous experience as well. My initial intention consisted in defining a program as a sum of management trainings but A&C (Adriana) did more than that – she created a complete program starting from identifying the needs of the organization and of the people that were going to attend the training. It all started from defining the vision, the values and the strategy of the organisation and all this was followed by a training series which intertwined like the pieces of a puzzle and whose final picture is a successful managerial team, united by a common goal. This program is not a list of trainings but rather a mini-MBA as Adriana says and I would add mini – regarding the costs and MBA – regarding its content and results.”

‘’Simple like that. A&C Consulting resonate with passion, commitment and professionalism!
They ‘’arrived’’ in our organization naturally. I can remember beginning with a few courses and after that my colleagues started to ask for A&C Consulting Centre more and more of their programs.
We got already results and evidence, and we booked the next steps in our organizational development with this great consultants individuals.
It’s so nice now to see them as the one valuable partner among our road map.’’
HCE General Director, Hamilton Central Europe

„Working with A&C gives you right from the beginning of a recruitment or training process the confidence that all efforts will be spent to result the best possible outcome. In both instances, the effort is doubled by a deep understanding of local labor market dynamics and needs which qualifies A&C as a high profile organizational consultancy company. And behind acronyms sits a team whose personal qualities, interpersonal acumen and commitment makes it all possible…”

‘’Puts the Science back in Management! This is the one-liner which describes best the mini MBA Program from A&C Consulting. The Program covered a lot of information, delivered in a concise way, easy to grasp. The content was clear, logical and effective. A&C Consulting [or Mrs. Adriana Badescu] had obviously put a lot of thought and expertise into designing it. Its highly integrated approach with theory combined with active learning techniques, broadened my understanding of human resources, leadership and management core concepts. The ready-to-use management techniques enabled me, coached me and deepened my confidence to lead my team by empowering each of its members. I would recommend the mini MBA Program to anyone who is in a constant pursuit of personal and professional development”.

“With extensive HR network and expertise support during company restructuring process, A&C Consulting Centre greatly helped our employees to pass hard period of new jobs search with an Outplacement project.
Set goal was to substantially help employees by counseling and coaching activities in order to offer to people emotional support, required skills to pass successfully change curve as described by Kubler-Ross model. Project base model was introduced by Individual career counseling connected with Thomas profile and CV consultancy, followed up face to face consultancy and promotions to possible employers within wide range of companies. Our project was extremely complex due to multiple function levels and professions of individual employee, as well as unbalance timing plan affected by Covid-19 lock downs and client settlements of hiring processes.
Both consultants Gabriela and Radu showed and proved important roles during employee sessions mainly using emotional intelligence techniques and coaching models. Their warm and human targeted approach improved generally employee morale and diligence in new challenge search. We have successfully outplaced most of the employees who decided and dedicated their powers to this project.”
Plant Manager, Joyson Safety Systems Curtici
„Having A&C Consulting Centre as consultancy provider from the very beginning, we have experienced that Adriana and Codruta are offering excellent service, always well prepared and detailed. Their service is dedicated to the client, which gives them very strong preference in comparison with other consultants. They are always there to help or advice what and how can be done better. It can be training or coaching or recruitment but they always make it tailored to our needs. In the case of human resources consultancy or better to say in the case of organizational and personal development, which is their scope of work, mutual trust, and strong relationship are very important. I am glad to be able to say that with A&C we reached that level of cooperation. Adriana and Codruta, I wish you that this first decade is just the start of your successful development and growth!”

"What is A&C Consulting Center? It is the leverage used by a wise manager to unlock the inner organizational potential. Is the strength which can drive this potential to the optimal direction…
...and they can do this so well because of their experience in seemingly opposite fields. They are exactly those domains which are required by an organisation in order to function together: engineering, economy, psychology, pedagogy, management, business development, human resources.
A&C represents more than the people who support it...it is the pretext of their interaction, which succeeds to take shape in others in form of human and managerial skills, essential for organizations. The managers of our organisation realised the opportunity of our collaboration and, knowing the direction we decided to follow, they allowed A&C to start this potential unblocking process, flowing the organisational forces. Give them trust and you will see in your own organisation...what is A&C Consulting Center."
HR Manager, Swoboda Sibiu
"The training sessions delivered by Codruta Mirci and Adriana Badescu keep you curious and excited, I couldn’t wait for next day to learn more interesting things. The training activities were exceptional – succeeded to value all your thinking and creativity skills. The visible transformation which we benefit after the training sessions with A&C is the prove of a special team and the efficiency of Adriana and Codruta.
Codruta and Adriana are highly professionals, who combine the passion for their work with empathy toward the people they interact with. Their real communication abilities and solid knowledge in their field make the messages they send to always meet the target."
Country HR Manager, DS Smith, Packaging Division, Romania
„Our collaboration with A&C Consulting Centre began long time ago and during years I was pleasantly surprised to find at the company much more than consulting services, to find two persons who really want to offer you the desired support both in personal development and team development. Any company success is provided by motivated and knowledgeable people, whose needs and aspirations are understood by their managers. The partnership with A&C Consulting Centre helped us to solve these challenges at a very professional level, either through recruiting, diverse training programs or development. I am confident that in the future we are going to work together as good as we have already done and we are going to be as satisfied as we have been in developing projects with Adriana and Codruta. I wish you success and to keep yourself as optimistic, passionate and committed to what you are doing!”

„We have been collaborating with A&C since more than 10 years, and during this period they proved reliability, flexibility and readiness. When all our resources seemed to be exhausted, they offered us through their perseverance the expected results in short time. They are professionals who respect themselves and who respect us, we warmly recommend them.”
Head of Human Resources Romania, Huf Romania
„I know Adriana since 1999, when I was first time nominated as supervisor and I had the first contact with training, development and some other “secrets” about people and leadership. Then, I had the opportunity to benefit from Adriana and Codruţa’s support in current roles, starting with discussions and advices on strategy issues to day-to-day organizational subjects which our team learned and then applied. There are many things to be said, though the most important I think it is the feedback I get from my colleagues after a meeting or a training at A&C Consulting Centre (or online) and I see them joyful, understanding and then applying what they have learned; in addition, the first experiences you never forget.”

“The consultant – is that person with whom you develop a collaboration relationship. The foundation of this collaboration is the faith that no matter which are the challenges, they will be understood and the appropriate solutions will be found (no more, no less). For this, the consultant has a bag full of rich experience and thorough knowledge of reality, creativity, passion and humor. Adriana and Codruta are these consultants.”

“Choosing A&C as a supplier for training sessions proves to be always an INSPIRED decision! Our collaborators offered us practical instruments, managerial models, self-evaluation opportunities and at the same time relaxing moments harmoniously intertwined within the program. Each time, the programmes are tailor made to cover our organisational needs. The training programmes development and approach and the outcomes of internal evaluations allow us to highly appreciate the quality of the training services delivered by A&C Consulting Centre, the experience and knowledge of trainers along with the training materials offered to participants. Motivated by the high level of adaptability to our requests, we considered to continue to collaborate on an indefinite periode.
We have seen the effectiveness of training by measuring an HR performance indicator very critical in the west part of Romania, TURNOVER. After teaching production leaders, turnover has decreased gradually, becoming half of the initial evaluations. The participants’ feedback shows that they are the most appreciated trainers of all we’ve been working with. This implies directly raising the standards and expectations of all the trainers we are working with. Thus, we are very happy with the training solutions offered by A&C and we strongly recommend any kind of collaboration with this supplier.”

“I participated to several training sessions organised by A&C Consulting Centre and a recent one was „Understanding Human Behaviours”. Until here, nothing new! I have participated to many training sessions on this topic; each of them brought added value, but generally the content was similar. The one organised by A&C Consulting Centre and delivered by Adriana remained in my memory and, sincerely, I don’t think I will forget it soon.
I succeeded to understand, but seriously, TO UNDERSTAND!!! the behaviours of those around me. And this happened because of Adriana. Thank you, Adriana, for that!
I’m thinking how I can describe Adriana Badescu in words. It is very difficult! She is that kind of person who knows how to approach a situation, how to explain it to be understood by everyone, to get the best ideas from each person.
She guides discussions to make you realise the evidence and, what is the most important, she makes you to be willing to accept and use the knowledge. After her training sessions, I do it every day! I also see Adriana as a thorough professional, who listens your point of view, but she assertively addresses difficult issues.
I recommend her with pleasure and I can assure you that you will not lose your time!”
Administrative Director at Hamilton Central Europe
"The collaboration with A&C was for me a wonderful journey, along it I felt many times rediscovering myself.
The team of professionals managed by Adriana and Codruta provides outstanding services adapted to the client’s needs, either training, coaching or recruitment. When the mutual trust is added to these services, which comes by default with A&C, the outcome is both organisational development and personal development."
Deputy Director, Leman Industrie Romania
“It was difficult for me to write about A&C Consulting Centre and I did not know why. I realized that it was as difficult as if I needed to talk about me, because Adriana and Codruta are now a part of our company. They did not come into our organization as employees, but as individuals, who by commitment, sincere desire to help and multilateral professional knowledge have become more than partners. It has often turned out that Adriana and Codruta went beyond our organization’s expressed needs and found new ways to help us in the effort of developing the company, as if they were a part of it and would have directly benefit from it. I believe the honest and open hearted attitude, their full engagement, along with the feeling that their work is not only a job, but a passion, provides A&C Consulting Centre with present and future success.”
Human Resources Manager, Dura Automotive Romania (în trecut)
"I am happy to recommend A&C Consulting Centre as a very professional company always provinding services at very high standards. I know A&C Consulting Centre from the past and recent engagements we have worked together such as training, development and recruitment.
Our collaboration was extremely good starting from a very good understanding of our needs, to the excellent expertise that the company brought along in providing best and customized solutions, to the permanent and open communication and feedback.
I want especially to mention the very great experience I had with A&C Consulting Centre in recruiting a key management position, after a long and un-successful trials with other companies. Our request was treated very promptly, the whole process went very fast and with a very good portfolio of candidates recommended for the advertised position. I could feel the interest and commitment from A&C Consulting Centre to offer their experience and knowledge to support us in finding and recruiting the person we desire.
I am happy to say that, with support of A&C Consulting Centre, we have closed successfully our recruitment process in a short period and managed onboarding a perfectly matched candidate. I am confident about the professional services of A&C Consulting Centre therefore I warmly recommend them."

“…I remembered the collaboration between Kromberg & Schubert Romania and A&C Consulting Centre, which started shortly after the start-up activity in our factory. I recall with pleasure our discussions as we tried to identify the most appropriate actions for training the trainers, in order to answer to the specific requests on the production of wiring activity, as it was organized in our factory; I remember the discussions with you to define the profiles for the recruitment of the staff. I felt the attitude of A&C team as it would have been a member of our group, Kromberg & Schubert.”
