Client feedback


They deliver above expectation when the scheme has a particular challenge.

Excellent and comprehensive training course. I will definitely refer to what I've learned and received.

​Their pragmatic approach helps with quick and easy decision making. Another approach might have made things more difficult.
Mark Assinder,

So much more proactive than the previous company. On the ball - thinking in advance of things needing doing - very proactive.
Paul Rudd ,
Chairman of Trustees, Express Newspaper
I learnt more than I expected to at the trustee training course. A good introduction to the trustee role.
Rob Hartley,
RSPCA
The trustee training course lecturers' explanations and willingness to answer questions were most valuable - even silly ones - although I have learnt there are no 'silly questions' that trustees should ask.
