Client Feedback

“Alex within a very short timescale was able to deliver a high quality service that helped us secure a large delivery contract. All the more astounding given the fact, that Alex had to work with little direction from myself, but was able to understand my needs and translate those to a successful business proposal. Professional, easy to work with and caring about the quality of service and value for money, I look forward to working with Alex in the future”

Jim Crook, Director, Blue Orchid.

“Alex produced an excellent evaluation report for us in short timescale, collecting, identifying and interpreting the salient data and background information to give us practical outcomes from the study and clear recommendations that we can implement. Alex planed and delivered a very successful consultation event, this added to the impact of the report, and was good to have a professionally facilitated session, conducted in a friendly and helpful manner. Having an outside view brought great benefit to the exercise, and we hope to work with her again in the future”

 Michelle Cox, Head of Equality and Diversity, Liverpool Primary Care Trust

“I have just read [the report] and wanted to say how excellent I thought it was, both in terms of having some positive outcomes but also your very in depth and accurate analysis”

    Education and Entreprise Director, Blackburne House

“Bringing a thorough understanding of the education sector and current strategic influences whether local, regional or national, Alex has been instrumental in providing us with essential management information, insight and clarity to inform our tendering activities. The service is friendly, flexible and professional, with a high degree of integrity. She consistently meets tight deadlines, and always delivers! I’m consistently impressed by the speed of response and the high levels of expertise displayed ”

     Chris Barton, General Manager – Trident Training Limited ( Liverpool Chamber of Commerce)

“I have know Alex in several capacities for over 10 years now. As a trainer and someone who provides advice for often disadvantaged people either starting in business or returning to employment, she has few peers. Her work is always well informed, totally professional, and delivered in a way that helps the learners achieve their potential.”

As a member of the Board of the Open College North West Region she has been exceptional. Alex is a good committee member and her skills abound for the good of the organisation and its learners. On many occasions I have witnessed her challenge or make suggestions that have resulted in the development of more successful strategies or helped improve effectiveness or efficiency. “

    John Hollis-Davies, Managing Director, JD Associates

“Alex was invaluable in helping us to define a new vision and strategy for Ada House. She worked with both the Management Committee and staff, facilitating their strategy ideas and development plans for the future. The participants found the exercise very inspirational and positive, and were keen to take the plans further. The strategy development day also fostered a desire amongst the participants to become much more confident and pro-active in steering the organisation in the future. The report and the action plan that she prepared following the strategy arrived very promptly, are of a high standard, and are now helping us move towards our newly defined vision for the future of our organisation. Professional, reliable and knowledgeable, I would happily recommend her services to other small third sector organisations”

Barbara Brashay, Chair, Ada House
