These are some of the things our clients say about us:
“We asked Almond Tree Associates to help us address a number of challenges which followed a major structural change in the business. Sue was quick to help us identify a broad range of strategic, tactical and operational issues. She was not afraid to challenge our thinking, but always in a highly constructive manner. Sue has the rare skill both to help with the analysis and then to design and implement the actions required to achieve results. She produced a practical game-plan and together we agreed the priorities to tackle. Sue contributed to a number of complex projects, always focusing on the benefits to the business. She worked with key stakeholders to ensure buy-in, handling the issues with great tenacity, rigour and thoroughness.
Sue works extremely efficiently and in a short space of time made a real difference to our business; I believe she would be an asset to any CEO in a professional services business looking to implement change and maximise operational excellence.”
UK Managing Director, Korn Ferry Whitehead Mann
“We engaged Sue to run an independent client survey across our global client base. The survey provided detailed insight on how our clients, new and established, perceived all aspects our business. The output from this work has been of huge value and enabled us to really focus our attention on making improvements to areas of our business that meet our clients’ needs and ensure we remain at the forefront of our industry.
Sue invested the time at the beginning of the project to really understand our business, our clients and what we needed from the survey. Her all-round delivery from planning, execution, and presentation of findings was highly professional and tailored to our management team. Her knowledge, experience and understanding of how our industry works brought the whole project together and made it a real success.
Chief Operating Officer, Leathwaite
“Sue undertook a client relationship review for us and we were very happy with the insight it produced. The quality of the design, execution and reporting was excellent and has proved hugely valuable in the development of our business strategy. I would not hesitate in recommending Sue – the combination of her industry knowledge and fresh perspective is compelling and allows her to get to the root of issues by asking the right questions.”
Managing Director, Warren Partners
“Sue worked with Aegis Advisory in a consultancy role to help re-design and implement a new business structure better to enable Aegis to grow revenues and improve the structure of the business. As part of this work, Sue reviewed all our business lines and processes and contributed to developing the new business strategy. Sue’s ability to design, execute and manage projects of this kind was impressive.
Her intellectual acuity and the speed with which she ‘grips’ issues and sorts them out quickly had an immediate positive impact on the way we conduct business. Her output was prodigious; she would turn around components of the project swiftly and efficiently, always nailing the details and ensuring that process was ‘lite’ but highly effective. Sue has a sharp eye for detail, is highly numerate and uses data effectively to design processes.
Sue was instrumental in launching new marketing products which she designed and project managed. Sue was a huge asset to Aegis Advisory and her legacy is a more efficient, effective and successful business.
