Testimonials

Bill Sivewright

"It was some 10 years since the last full review of our Board Governance and during that period it has undergone significant organic change. We asked Pete to conduct a holistic evaluation to make sure that our governance remained coherent and effective. Gathering evidence through document review and personal interview and observing the Board in action, meant that his findings had real resonance.

His feedback was delivered with consideration and left everyone encouraged that they were performing well but also motivated to look for ways in which we can continue to improve."

“From the very start of his full review of our strategy and objectives, Pete was highly professional, tenacious and diligent. His depth of analysis and research ensured that the strategy review was conducted rigorously and professionally. Using his vast breadth of experience, Pete led the project in a timely manner and presented viable options to develop the charity.  He went above and beyond in his time, effort and dedication to the project, he was also an absolute delight to work with throughout.”

"Working with Pete has been an extremely valuable process for our organisation. Pete gives clear and inciteful guidance and is extremely knowledgeable about the charitable sector and the different pressures we face.

He communicated extremely well throughout the whole of the process and we would highly recommend him a skilled facilitator for bringing different interest groups together to address a common goal."

"Peter assisted the board of 6 people from various backgrounds with different levels of understanding in developing our strategy. Due to Covid our meetings were via Zoom, which was not ideal, but within a short space of time we completed this work in a timely fashion and now have a shared understanding, which will no doubt support our charity now and in the future.

Thank you Peter you have been a great help and brilliant communicator/teacher."

“Pete supported us to identify our priorities in choosing a merger partner, led an options appraisal of potential partners and supported the selection process.  Pete continued to support and mentor me throughout the merger process, and provided consistent, calm support throughout despite the challenges we faced.  He delivered work on time and to a high standard, and flexed with us as needed.  Pete was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him.”

“We engaged Pete to help us support a local community to consider options for the provision of new community facilities.  Not only did Pete provide much needed additional capacity and experience to help us take our project forward, he also quickly and adeptly developed positive working relationships between the various stakeholders.  His expertise and mix of skills in managing the project and his empathy for the objectives of the different groups helped us secure positive outcomes which might not otherwise have been possible.”

“Langport Town Council had decided to convert the Town Trust to a CIO… and contracted Pete to support the process, which he did very successfully. We found him to be very professional and at the same time approachable and quick to understand the complex issues.”

"Pete has been absolutely brilliant for our charity. We needed independent expertise to facilitate a merger with Meningitis Research Federation, which was always going to be a delicate process. Pete advised both us and the other charity involved carefully through the process, with advice based clearly on real expertise. Communication throughout the process was faultless and what was really exceptional was the care Pete showed concerning the outcomes for both charities, truly above and beyond.
