We are a team of two: Steve and Julie; husband and wife. We share a passion for problem solving, challenging assumptions and preconceptions (both our own and our clients) and inspiring innovation and change.
When we met 25+ years ago, Julie was the first female Operations Manager for TNT Logistics in the UK, while Steve went on to manage inbound logistics for Land Rover Vehicles (as it was then) in Solihull. We have shed loads (literally) of supply chain operations management experience between us – we are long-term logistics nuts.
Our years of operational management experience have given us insights into the co-dependencies between administrative systems and operational processes. These insights are at the heart of our solutions.
“One of Steve’s deep strengths is his ability to connect with a wide range of people and secure ownership of change. Lots of people claim that ability; he really has it.”
This was the unprompted client endorsement that started everything!
Research had shown that, despite numerous ‘methodologies’ developed by others (usually derived from the manufacturing industry), there are few examples of successful, sustained performance improvement within service environments.
The movement of information, data and knowledge through an organisation is something we are passionate about. Our vision is to forge a path towards a new way of practicing consultancy support by working in a highly interactive, collaborative and inclusive way that is both enjoyable and nurturing.
This is the foundation for all we do
