“PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it”
“The work that has been done has been delivered beyond expectations.”
“Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.”
“I wanted to look at the effectiveness of our trustee board, so Gillian, our PSGS scheme secretary, provided their trustee self-assessment tool to help me gather thoughts and opinions from others on the board. The tool was extremely easy to use and asked all the right questions to help me collect the information I needed as Trustee Chair. It is a great example of the way PSGS shares knowledge with their clients and makes dealing with key governance issues easy. As well as enabling me to meet one of the Regulator’s 21st century trusteeship requirements, using the tool has flagged trustee training needs and ways we could improve trustee meetings further. ”
“The trustee training course covered a wide variety of subjects which gives a good basis for future discussion and decision making during trustee meetings.”
“The team provide an excellent service with practical and commercial input that we have not found with anyone else.”
