“KYC – know your consultant”

KYC normally stands for Know Your Customer but we thought we’d borrow that catchy litte acronym for our own means.

It’s good to know a little about the people behind the business.  Their character can stongly influence the quality of service you can expect from their business.  So, we made the decision to “put ourselves out there” and share comments from those whom we’ve worked with over the years.

we hope these comments build confidence in your decision to engage with us

Here is a short bio of our director and senior consultant and below that are some of their career highlights.

We hope to know you better too, real soon!
