Our Happy Clients

  • Ian is a really excellent coach with a flair for delivery and an ability to build rapport with the teams being trained. Ians skills extend beyond the bid process into sales and account management technique and the delegates always appreciated Ians ability to bring them all together in a coherent programme. I always enjoyed watching Ian coach delegates as one could see how they appreciated his professional style and delivery

  • Ian has been a revelation; explaining industry best practice in understandable and easily implemented sections. He is obviously an expert in his field but he also has the soft skills that are needed to pass this knowledge on - a rare mix. I'd wholeheartedly recommend Ian to any company looking to inject some success into their business development

    Bid Manager Education Sector Lead
  • Ian advised on and participated in the hands on development of a complex proposal submission, translating stakeholder requirements into a compelling set of proposed plans, driving them through rigorous governance gates and delivering them to the regulator on time. This was a particularly difficult assignment, with many revised timescales (never backwards) and changes of requirement. He kept his sense of humour intact and acted as a real team member, rather than a consultant. He put proposal best practice into practice, coaching a diverse community of scientists, engineers and customer service experts along the way.
