We pride ourselves on the level of service we provide and here is what some of our customers have said about us:

 

"This is just a short note to express my thanks for the support that you provided. John, your wise counsel, guidance and rigorous challenge when required were much appreciated...and helped to bring the programme to a successful conclusion. A number of significant improvements resulted which will provide a strong foundation for further scaling and expansion of this innovative product."  "I'd also like to say what a pleasure it is to work with you, and I know this view is shared by my colleagues, and in particular the team members, who both valued and benefitted from your subtle coaching and mentoring and undoubted knowledge, experience and expertise." John Corney, Company Secretary and Board Member, O2 Money (a Telefonica Global Company)

 

"Thank you, John - this is a seminal moment in the history of Natural England. This is the transparency that I needed." Helen Phillips, CEO, Natural England

 

"It has been a delight to work with John Shuttleworth on a project that has greatly benefited Natural England and me personally". Bob Middleton, Project Manager, CPMS

 

"South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive has made a transition to an aligned, performance driven, culture. They are set fair for the migration to a true performance culture". Dawn Madin, Executive Project Sponsor, SYPTE

 

"The programme has been a vitally important aid to us in concentrating our minds to the urgency and enormity of our task. From a personal point of view, it has given me more clarity of the timetable I need to follow to achieve our objectives and some of the pitfalls along the way." William Webb, Executive Member, Lincolnshire County Council

 

"We began our programme with a technical report showing us what we had to do but we didn't have a framework for working out how and where we should implement it. With John we were able to develop that framework and so evaluate our options systematically and objectively. This way we could work through the difficult decisions with councillors and our Partners. We now have a formally adopted plan and everyone knows their place in helping to deliver it." Richard Wills, Director for Development, Lincolnshire County Council

 

"John helped us with the change process in our ambition to become a 'can-do' Authority, as opposed to one that always has reasons why it can't do something. I was extremely pleased with the positive affects on my staff and their work." Barry Rollinson, CEO, Castle Point Borough Council

 

"The programme has made people identify the indicators which are most valuable to the delivery of their service.  It's widened their understanding and knowledge, as well as dramatically improving their overall team work.  People are really starting to take ownership of their roles and the resulting service levels." John Hunter, Head of Strategic Policy and Performance at Castle Point Borough Council.

 

"By the end of the programme, the teams had reached clear vision as to what and more importantly, how, the PSA targets were to be achieved." Judith Moore, Corporate Best Value Manager,
Lancashire County Council

 

"The message is clear; our strategy is clear; we will focus on the highest priority issues and once they have been tackled, we deploy the others in order. We have quite simply set the management team agenda for the coming year." Mike Mastrianis, CEO Philips Audio

 

"We have a shared understanding to a level we have not seen before.  Some very difficult issues have been dealt with on a facts based, objective way. I feel that the collective ownership and  commitment to the strategy gives us the best possible chance to make it happen."  Wiebo Vaartjes, CEO Philips Speaker Systems

 

"We have been able to use this maturity to calmly and professionally work step by step through the issues facing the business. Understanding and insight has led us to transition scenarios and a future in which we can have a lot of confidence."  Bernard Chytra, CEO Philips Consumer Media Players

 

Training Specifics:

"It was a pleasure to attend your training program on Balanced Score Card & Key Performance Indicators. The course was very well laid down and most of the critical aspects of the subject were very well covered with examples from corporate world. Additionally, I would like to appreciate your thorough knowledge on the subject matter (theory and application aspect)." Amit Kapur, Director, Everest Group

 

"John, on behalf of the group, I want to thank you for being such a wonderful trainer and facilitator. The simplicity of the delivery, the hands on practise sessions and the wealth of live examples and personal experiences you shared held our attention throughout the 2 days. Not many trainers can accept that the people they are training have something to share too. You encouraged and drew out all the knowledge in the room and we were enriched by it." Deborah De Souza, Cornell Enterprises, Mumbai, India
