Nice things people have said

  • "I am pleased to report the successful conclusion of a session at the LDP Public Enquiry earlier today concerned solely with our site. I put this down to all the preparatory work you and others have done to get us to this stage."
    Henry Dare, Trustee - the Morris Estate
  • "I've known lead consultant Dr Ben Reynolds for several years and worked with him on a number of issues. In particular, most assiduously, he gave of his own time as part of a group to advise me on the rewriting of Community Work (4th Edition) to be published by McMillan Hargreaves in 2007. I've found Ben's comments extremely insightful and helpful and was most impressed by the quality of his work."
    Alan Twelvetrees, Author of 'Community Work'
  • “The Walsall myplace proposal benefitted considerably from the help and support of the team. The capital plan, the work with young people and the partnership aspects were stronger and more sustainable, and the partners were pleased with the outcomes of the various workshops led by the myplace support team.”  
    Ian Cruise Taylor, myplace programme officer for Walsall Council
  • "The mapping exercise was a particularly difficult thing to sell let alone take on and produce results for.  For that all the members of the group will be eternally grateful.  The presentation of the results was innovative, clear and immediately re-useable to further our thinking.  You produced material to order, on time and extremely professionally.  You have an immediate and overall understanding of the issues but also a keen and supportive interest in the arts. Your work in bringing the three consultations together and as a team member in pulling the whole strategy together as a piece was also extremely valuable and helpful.  When we presented the strategy to the Arts Council at the specific feedback conference with other authorities who had undertaken the same exercise, it was abundantly clear that the Swansea approach was light years ahead of the rest.  In particular, we had delivered what we said we would and the material - easily accessible and actually fun to have - was what was actually need to forge strategic ideas for the future for young people and the arts in Swansea. Your contribution to that achievement was vital. Thank you again on behalf of the City and County of Swansea Youth Arts Strategy core working group."
    Robin Hall, Swansea Youth Arts Partnership
  • "You were inspirational in the role of 'Chair’, giving an informative and insightful overview of the importance of the arts in the creative regeneration of our towns, and how this could apply here in Haverfordwest."
    Chris Evans, Director - Idea Architects
  • "The process was not an easy one, but with your support we generated a positive dialogue with the building’s owners and other key people in the local area, established the condition and viability of developing the building, and developed a creative and dynamic vision, supported by a strong business case.  I am happy to recommend you to others seeking creative consultants that can help to make complex but exciting regeneration projects like these happen."
    David Warner, Senior Provost, Swansea Metropolitan University
