Here are some thoughts about our Agent's work:
"Margaret worked with our Senior Management Team to increase their personal and team effectiveness. I have quickly seen an improvement in communications across the team and we are now converting this into action to drive improvement in service provision. Margaret's approach to her assignments has been exemplary, holding senior confidences of the leadership and facilitating this with the highest level of integrity."
Organisational Development Director (NHS South West)
"I have worked with the Business Dectectives for the last 4 years both in my previous business and in my current one. I am a return customer because I appreciate their pragmatic approach to working with the business to find the best solutions rather than having a one size fits all approach. I also value their experience and 'old fashioned wisdom' which gives me an invaluable external perspective on how the business is operating."
Vice President Human Resources (Invensys Rail Northern Europe)
"In working with the Business School's Senior team, Margaret Davies provided invaluable strategic insight to the management and leadership challenges which faced the School during a period of unprecedented growth and development. Over an extended period, Margaret demonstrated her ability to engage and work with a wide range of the School's internal stakeholders at individual, senior team and wider team levels. Her enthusiasm, engaging approach and understanding of the complexity of the issues facing a large organisation during a period of change and flux made a real difference.
We were impressed by Margaret's insightful and creative approach and the expertise, analysis and strategic focus she brought to our discussions. She enabled us to gain a deeper understanding of our management and leadership challenges and worked with us to create constructive and positive ways forward."
School Manager (University of Exeter Business School)
"As a Board of trustees with a mixture of skills and experiences, Caroline worked alongside us in a creative and innovative way to challenge our thinking, shape our Vision and develop our 5 year plan. Using her excellent inter-personal skills and business knowledge, Caroline skilfully facilitated the sessions so that all board members thoughts and ideas were utilised and ensured that we worked together as a team to get results. Having worked with Caroline in both the charity and business sectors and seen what she delivers, I can highly recommend her."

"I have worked with the Business Detectives on and off for nearly 5 years and they have been my first choice for support. They are reliable, supportive, bright, constructive and analytical. They are fun to work with and to be around. Margaret and Caroline bring a unique and innovative synthesis of styles to their development approach ranging from the serious to the fun. They are able to identify with a wide spectrum of issues/challenges that they bring from personal experiences of business and life."
