A few recent quotes from our clients...


"A very useful report which will inform future HLF grant making processes as well as being shared publicly by HLF on our website in 2016. Thank you for your care and expertise in your engagement of community and volunteer led organisations as part of this research"

Liz Ellis, Policy Adviser Communities and Diversity, Heritage Lottery Fund

"Simon produced an excellent evaluation report within the agreed cost and timescale. His work has been fundamental to our success in securing additional resources and our ability to confidently plan the future work and priorities of the Scottish Transitions Forum."

James Fletcher, Director, ARC Scotland

"Very effective. Fast, efficient, approachable and professional."

Kirsteen Torrance, Cycling Development Officer, Fife Council

"The development of the research phase of the evaluation of the Recognition Scheme was informed by constructive dialogue, and useful feedback on progress was provided throughout. The comments gathered from Recognised Collections were useful in helping shape future strategy development, with the report confirming the value of the Scheme to the sector and helping to identify future priorities. The Recognition Committee commended the final report to the Minister."

Alison Turnbull, Head of Research and Standards, Museums Galleries Scotland

"The evaluation work that you undertook and the report that you produced for me on the Future Learning & Teaching projects was really excellent, and I’d have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to colleagues. The key challenge of the evaluation was pulling together several disparate projects and policy areas / themes into a coherent and workable report. In carrying out your work you very successfully tackled that, and delivered"

James Newman, Schools Directorate, Scottish Government

"Your support and input is greatly valued, and has helped make this a publication of which we are proud. We believe that 'The Art of Learning' will be a timely and useful resource for the learning community by effectively illustrating the contribution that arts and creativity can make to the delivery of Curriculum for Excellence"

Joan Parr, Head of Education, Scottish Arts Council

"We now have a Three Year Strategic Business Plan which the board and staff are signed up to. We have also shared it with some key stakeholders and they are comfortable with it too. Therefore, we achieved exactly what we set out for. The most helpful aspect of the process was Simon’s drive and enthusiasm. He mixed knowledge of the sector and us with thorough research of the operating environment and produced a high quality document. Plus, he was always prepared to go the extra mile in order to get the job done"

Simon Shearer, Chair, Edinburgh Young Carers Project

"Simon’s ability to quickly understand our organisation meant that he could cast an accurate eye on our work, which helped to draw our ideas together and start to lay out our strategic plan a calmly confident facilitator who gently steered our meeting though a clear process and who brought a lot of charity knowledge to our board meeting."

Lisa Maclean, Network Director, International Network of Street Papers

"We have had lots of really good feedback about the day. Simon was especially well liked as he put everyone at ease and added some much needed humour and positivity on the day."

Alex Hunt, Head of Internal Development, Yorkshire Rural Community Council

"The outcomes have been numerous. We have been able to get our membership back on board, improve our governance structure and we are about to merge with an affiliate of a national organisation, which will put us in good stead with regards to funding and our political clout. The potential for the next three years in how effective we become as a voluntary sector organisation is huge."

Kirsty Burnham, Development Worker, Borders Voluntary Youth Work Forum

"The outcomes were the creation of a team which fully understands the purpose of what we are there to do, and what we must do in order to achieve the set goals."

June Gardner, Coordinator, EH22 Streetwork Project

"Thanks a lot, Simon. You helped us to see the light at the end of the tunnel."

Sue Trenerry, Operations Manager, Nightstop UK
