about us

Trusted by leading professional firms

Leader supports
professional firms
to develop a
vibrant feedback

Performance Leader was founded in Australia in 2008 as SkillsScorecard by Ray D’Cruz, a former lawyer and head of learning, and Patrick Fitzgerald, co-founder of the leading sports mobile business, Sportsmate. Since then we’ve grown our team, established a UK base and worked with clients in over 30 countries. Our clients are drawn exclusively from the professional services sector.

We pair flexible technology with deep sector expertise to guide and support clients evolve their approach to performance management. We’ve been at the forefront of research into performance in the professions, charting the shift from annual reviews toward more continuous feedback, and helping our clients to constantly evolve.

Our values



We adopt a flexible mindset. We don’t offer a one-size-fits-all solution and claim it will solve your challenges. We adapt our platform to meet your needs and support your strategy and culture. And if you want to keep refining and developing your approach, which we recommend, we won’t penalise you to reconfigure the software.



We believe balance is vital when it comes to performance, and that no one aspect or feature should dominate performance design. The right approach is a balanced one, that supports your key drivers. That could be better career planning, objective/goal tracking, reflective learning, building a coaching and feedback culture or informing remuneration decisions.



We’re in this business because of the mutually rewarding and enjoyable relationships. We know the path to realising potential has twists and turns. That’s why we’re committed to collaborating with you, and helping you evolve your approach over time. Unlike some software providers, we want a relationship – to get to know you and your firm and to support you as an extension of your team.
