Robert Barton has helped my organisation in many ways, not least because he understands franchised businesses very well: finding well qualified staff, recruiting for a number of technically difficult positions, assisting with the management of commercially and strategically important projects and helping me build high performance teams throughout the business. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Rob and commend his delivery against the brief, on time and in full every time.
— Franchise Director, Metro Rod Ltd
I just wanted to say how great you and the team have been yet again.

Private school

The project

We were approached by the headmaster of a prestigious private school on behalf of the Board of Governors and senior management team to conduct, collate and report on a survey carried out to ascertain parent satisfaction across all year groups.


Due to the success in the implementation of this confidential report we were asked to repeat the exercise three years later where positive feedback from parents was consistent across all year groups.
