What Clients Say

Found Ian very easy to work with, his methodical way of working helped to keep us to timescales. The quality of the work exceeded my expectations. Carole Johnson, Project Coordinator, Humber and Wolds Rural Community Council

Ian and Hugh provided an excellent service. Their work was friendly and professional. The evaluation of the project presented them with challenges, due to the difficulty in making direct contact with the end users of the resources produced. They demonstrated flexibility and commitment in trying different ways to reach a broad cross-section of people. As project manager, they kept me well informed of their progress, and were open to discussing ideas and making adaptations accordingly. They demonstrated a strong commitment to equality. The final report was very comprehensive, clearly written, and of a very high standard. It was described by a colleague as one of “the best I’ve seen for a project”. Nigel Joseph, former In Control and Me Project Manager, Mencap

Thank you for a cracking piece of work. I am really pleased, and I know that the rest of the steering group are too. They were an exacting range of people to work with/for!  But you achieved this convincingly. You have been very approachable, professional, thorough and responsive [and] I was impressed with how you applied existing knowledge and skills. Rebecca Maddox, former Community Assembly Manager, Sheffield City Council

Ian brings a great depth of knowledge, true professionalism and above all a friendly, approachable and supportive attitude to working with voluntary, community and faith groups. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him in my former capacity as Manager of the Furnival and would not hesitate to commend him to prospective clients. Mark Lavender, former Manager, Furnival Burngreave Community Projects

Ian very quickly learnt about our work and tailored his support to the organisation’s style. I found him to be very professional and diligent in his work and he delivered ahead of agreed deadlines. His knowledge of quality systems and VCS governance is impressive and I would recommend his services to any organisation. Azizzum Akhtar, former Co-ordinator, Sheffield LINk

We found Ian to be extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of quality assurance. His manner was friendly and informal and he was always willing to answer our queries. We could not have made so much progress without his invaluable and professional support. Audrey Croft, Project Manager, Sheffield Healthy Eating

Ian proved himself to be patient, dedicated and supportive. Working to our specific organisational needs and constraints, he enabled our directors to develop a portfolio of evidence against the PQASSO criteria. I would be happy to support his business development and encourage organisations in the sector to use his services. Florence McCready, former Project Manager, South Sheffield Partnership

The support we received from Ian in implementing PQASSO was invaluable. We had been nervous of starting this process but Ian made it all understandable and broke it down into manageable chunks. Colin Havard, former Director, Sharrow Community Forum
