“Dave and Andy brought an excellent combination of skills and experience to our organisation, both in terms of their backgrounds in public and private sector working and in their personal attributes, which complement each other. They were highly professional and provided us with high quality written reports and presentations throughout our project. We benefited from honest and candid feedback from them and also in having a critical friend with whom to check thinking. They were engaging and inspiring to work with and their personable style enabled them to get the best out of people. The value they added to our piece of work was exceptional and I do not believe we would have been able to deliver such a high quality standard end product, within the time scales, without them.”

“I found them to be professional, and had a personal touch which is warming. They are not afraid to challenge, and are robust in their change management methodology and philosophy.”

“Dave and Andy were able to identify and make recommendations that connected the Co-op’s purpose, with targets and staff engagement. As a direct result of their work our people are now achieving targets, and are more focussed, engaged and productive. There has been a 25% uplift in staff engagement – key to this has been Dave and Andy’s help to achieve successfully connecting our people to our purpose.”

"Andy delivers products and services with intelligence, substance and absolute reliability."

S.L. Former CEO Probation Service

"Andy worked with (named 3 provincial police forces) on a Major Crime collaboration project from August to December 2015. This commenced at short notice and he was flexible to meet the demands of us, the clients.  During this time he was able to win the confidence of the key stakeholders with his professionalism, objectivity, presentation and personal style. His closing report was a solid basis for the next stage of the project.  Based upon this experience I would thoroughly recommend Andy for these kinds of commissions in the future."

Assistant Chief Constable R.B., Senior Responsible Officer

“Dave draws on his considerable professional experience to convey confidence and a sense of reality. He challenges appropriately and was a valuable critical friend to myself as programme director, and energised the project team, keeping them on track through complex change. He always stresses the critical nature of cultural change alongside any successful change programme.”

‘We were working to incredibly tight deadlines to map out new ways of working across the whole organisation to a very detailed level to enable major new technology solutions to be configured. Not only were the processes new but the concept of process mapping was a completely new concept to the vast majority of the staff from whom we needed input. With a timeframe of six weeks to go from zero to 100 plus process maps and 2000 plus detailed system requirements, we knew we needed help.  Dave was not only able to mobilise fast, he was also able to quickly understand the challenge, familiarise himself with the people and develop a plan that would work for us. Engaging small groups of the front line doers in focused Ways of Working workshops (or WOWs), Dave was able to help my team make the most of every interaction and at the same time he was making sure all the products worked together end to end. The task was achieved on deadline and we even managed to squeeze in a tough quality assurance exercise at the end which enabled us to have confidence in the robustness of the work. I am genuinely doubtful that we would have been able to complete the task on time and to the level of quality required without Dave’s assistance’.
