“In my experience, not all professional trustees are able to cope with tricky or potentially confrontational situations. I find PSGS has massive experience in getting involved, earning the respect of others and resolving such issues. They get stuck in – they are a first rate team.”
“We are extremely pleased with the appointment we made. The way Ian reacts to us and works with us is brilliant. We are very happy.”
“They are very proactive and full of new ideas, they've brought better scheduling and better minute sets.”
“They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.”
“The Trustee training was very interactive and the presenters were engaging - thank you.”
“Ian has added more value than we thought he would at the start… which shows it pays to go with someone who is doing the job of a professional trustee as their bread and butter.”
