What our Clients say...

Without Andrew's help we would never have achieved so much positive change within our organisation and enabled all the team to buy into our Vision, Mission and Values - which resulted in us winning Pub Company of the Year two years running.
Anthony Wallis, Managing Director, John Bull Pub Company

Andrew's depth of business knowledge, his commercial view and focus on commercial outputs all combine to add value
John Roberts, HR Director, Ford Retail

St Austell Brewery have worked with Andrew Johnson and have benefited from his 20 years’ experience and strategic thinking that he brought to our organisation’s people strategy. He is sensitive to the unique nature and dynamics of a family business while providing creative yet pragmatic solutions to people issues. We would recommend his services without hesitation.

James Staughton, Managing Director of St Austell Brewery Co Ltd and IFBB Chairman

Our company is a fifth generation family business generating a turnover of £180m from the UK and International trade. We are careful about the use of consultants as we have found a wide variety of understanding; some have only PLC experience, others do get the private company world.

Andrew is very sensitive to the unique nature and the dynamics of a family business. He uses his insight from 20 years’ experience to help with strategic thinking and he is very strong on the development of a coherent people strategy. Unlike some other consultants he does develop solutions which are pragmatic and useful.
Paul Wells, Chairman, Charles Wells Ltd.
