Our people and approach

Experience counts

Ex-SAP certified trainer, CODA trainer. PRINCE2, FCCA.

Team listener+leader 

being a System Architect and Team Leader requires two good ears and lots of noise filters

There are no refreshing approaches to building and keeping people happy, just be nice and make them welcome and let them contribute. Buy in is vital for teams and projects.


We work with associates on a regular basis, we don't have a traditional structure so we engage as and when we need, its a fresh approach. We dont insist on people working with us, if they do they are respected. They are free to leave and join as they wish as long as we have work we will engage with the same people. This leads to a greater Partnership approach with networking being a major source of work and marketing.
