Testimonials

Brian Glasson

“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.”

"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."

“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… the approach to his work described on the HCC website was exactly what we wanted and he didn't disappoint. From start to finish, Pete was professional, communicated everything very clearly and promptly, and very obviously cared a great deal about the charity achieving the outcomes it desired. Would highly recommend HCC to anyone looking for strategic advice for their charity. Thanks Pete! "

“It’s been a pleasure working with Pete, who has not only supported us to achieve our brief but gone over and above - way beyond what other consultants might have offered. Whether you are looking for support in terms of restructuring your organisation and managing the way forward, or just looking for someone to provide critical and valuable feedback in a particular area, Pete uses his vast experience and wisdom to draw out exactly what is relevant and needed.

It’s fun to work with Pete too. He’s incredibly professional, down to earth and a totally nice chap. He’s very easy to get along with, highly intelligent, knowledgeable and engaging.”
