“Andy has been an invaluable source of support and expertise for our charity and social enterprise. In the time I have known Andy, I have found a rare combination of utmost integrity and incisive business skills. Andy’s attitude to his clients is positive and aware. He takes the time to really listen and has a knack of cutting through business rhetoric to understand what’s real, practical and achievable for an organisation. if you’re looking for a very astute hands-on charity/business consultant then Andy’s your man.”
“Andy has successfully completed a two year change programme interim management contract for GKD. During this time he has demonstrated a high level of strategic thinking, project and risk management, team building and personnel management skills. I can truly say that we would not have achieved our goals without Andy's dedication to the task. I would highly recommend Andy to any organisation.”
"A thinker: Andy’s knowledge of not only how to gain real insight into business and organisational issues is the best I have come across amongst many who pretend to do the same. A doer: I know this because of the outcomes of his thinking and his history which can be seen on his impressive and rare CV. A very decent man: His input and efforts over the years have improved the lives of many in our local communities."
“Julie has the strategic vision, emotional intelligence and perseverance to instigate and deliver change management, improving performance and customer service. She builds mature and effective relationships with and understands the drivers of colleagues, customers and other stakeholders.”
“I am delighted to have had the opportunity to work alongside Julie in establishing Aspire Adoption – the Regional Adoption Agency for Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole. Julie has been the Project Manager for Aspire Adoption and from first being appointed her enthusiasm, drive and commitment have been evident. As a skilled and experienced Project Manager, Julie has brought structure and organisation to the project, which complemented the professional knowledge of adoption already contained within it.
I have found Julie to be reliable, trustworthy and highly competent. She is able to motivate colleagues and others to achieve agreed outcomes and is excellent at negotiating and liaising with staff and managers at all levels, as well as service users.
Julie has demonstrated aptly that she can maintain and support several different workstreams concurrently. She has well developed report writing and analytical skills.
I am sure that without Julie’s input we would have struggled to meet the timescales for the launch of Aspire Adoption. She has proved to be a valuable and trusted colleague”
