What Clients Say...

"I approached William for advice on potential sales channels for my new business. After some insightful questioning on my solution and potential target client base and prospecting methods, he came up with a number of possibilities which I have since been able to follow up. I got the momentum I needed and would recommend William to anyone looking for unbiased, professional and "outside the box" thinking."

Tracey Macalester, CMEC, CMLC, CMFC Director, Focus Worldwide Ltd  www.focusworldwide.co.uk

 

"William worked for me to analyse a finance package from a well-known supranational institution for a major build project in Russia. 

Within days he identified key issues and took us through the implications of different scenarios and their impact on our organisation.  His commentary on the level of the offering and pricing levels, as well as his ability to help us recognise where we faced potential problems, were invaluable. 

He put us in a position where we could negotiate knowledgeably and confidently with the provider. Although in the end we decided not to continue with the package in question, there is no doubt that William saved us several million dollars in potential expenditure and thus maintain stability and profitability in a highly competitive market. 

I would recommend him to anyone looking for an astute and experienced business partner."

Philippe Nyssen, GM Immo Industry Group, Russia

 

"I've employed William as an associate for my business on several occasions.  In all instances, he has shown himself to be a valuable member of the team, prioviding insightful analysis and progressing projects to their conclusion in a timely and effective manner.  One of his greatest strengths is his flexibility - being able to take "big picture" or more detailed views as the situation demands, or being able to move from one project to another - and producing high quality work for his clients.  Anyone looking to improve their business or organisation's performance would be well advised to contact William for a professional, informed and value-adding approach."

Lance Jones, Managing Consultant, Working Strategy  

 

Our business is highly competitive.  William reviewed our costs in detail and took us through a budget planning cycle.  By the end of his time, he had enabled us to produce well-structured budgets.  We can now plan for the future with confidence, knowing that we're covering all the angles and that we're less
prone to potential shocks.

Apart from this, he also identified areas of potential risk in operations.  He helped us analyse our processes to find areas that we could change for the better.

William brings valuable expertise - the ability to look at one part of a business in the context of the whole.  His solutions are not based just on the current problem, but on how they will impact your whole business and they leave you with a lasting solution.

Matt Kerwood, Managing Director, New Business Interiors.

 

"I hired William to drive forward a major change management project based on pre-defined deliverables.  His considerable international risk and relationship management experience enabled him to communicate the vision we were looking to achieve across a number of departments and business lines. By the end of the two months for which he had been hired, he had engaged the teams concerned and enabled us to produce new solutions to support our strategy."

Lloyds Banking International

"I asked William to act as Chairman of a new fundraising project in the Winchester area.  He was quick to set priorities, establish a framework for the committee and to review the practical and legal aspects of what we were doing.  His attention to detail, organisational ability and willingness to deal with local government and suppliers wer critical in drawing up plans, obtaining commitment and ensuring that all stakeholder interests were addressed".   

Hugh Thompson, Head of Fundraising, Brendoncare 

 

"William enabled us to define strategy and standardise best practice within the company.  He helped us to develop Key Performance Indicators to provide regular health checks on operational and financial performance for the future, as well as providing a structure for recruiting and developing staff for long-term career success.  His financial insights showed us key areas for sales growth and realistic cost control.  He has added real long-term value to our prospects."
