Why choose me?

Having seen and experienced the challenges working with some consultants, I wanted to offer a genuine value-led solution based on the following principles:

- You and your business needs come first

- A tailored approach to your business, its culture, and how you would like to work

- Consistency. You won’t be passed between a team of consultants; services will always be delivered by me, the person who understood your original requirements and brings the experience and expertise that you need

- Coaching-led, so that you and your business understands the system and can maintain it, your business/system doesn’t depend on me

- Ongoing support, only if you need it and always value based

Old ways won’t open new doors.

My expertise

I have over 20 years’ experience in management systems, including working as an assessor at BSI (British Standards Institute), a leading global certification body.

I’m passionate about implementing best practice and providing real value to go beyond small basic improvements - I help businesses go further and can help you create real significant change, improving growth, performance and reducing risk.

No two business are the same, therefore ‘copying’ and ‘pasting’ a system is unlikely the right fit for you. I provide a custom solution whilst staying efficient. Clients have been impressed by just how quickly solutions have been implemented.

I have a suite of professional qualifications including a management and leadership diploma, HND (science/engineering subject), NEBOSH, IRCA & BSI certified Lead Auditor and have held a number of professional memberships.

I have a wide breadth of learning bringing a versatile and pragmatic skillset that can benefit any organisation.

I am based centrally (Milton Keynes) in the UK, but travel wherever is needed to fulfil my client’s requirements.

I have supported hundreds of organisations from small business owners right through to global blue-chip organisations. Let me help you to embed effective change and innovation.

We are all experts in our own little niches.

I work with certification bodies

Experience with leading certification and accreditation bodies means I know how they like to work, I can also manage the whole process of certification on your behalf.

I am a member of two leading certification body’s associate consultant programme/network:

BSI’s Associate Consultant programme

BSI say; “Our ACP members can help you put industry best practice into place within your business. They can also support you throughout implementation as you work towards certification – sharing their knowledge of regulatory requirements and showing you how to stay resilient and responsive. This way, we maintain our impartiality as an independent certification body.”

Alcumus ISOQAR associate network

Alcumus ISOQAR say; “Your organisation may need expert, hands-on advice to help you meet the requirements of internationally recognised standards. As a UKAS accredited certification body, Alcumus ISOQAR provide a database of third-party consultants to guide you through process of implementing your management system.”

I will work with other certification bodies, if you already have one in mind, or I can support you in choosing one..
