Client feedback

Executive Compass star

In January 2015 I spent a day with Neil Capstick taking me through the rigours of PQQ’s and tendering and, being a relative novice, I found the day to be an absolute joy! I learned invaluable knowledge and was presented with information, instruction and training bespoke to my role and industry. Neil and his staff were accommodating, friendly and professional, keeping the sessions informal but thorough and left me armed with all the outcomes required by my employer.

Days later, I attempted my first PQQ and won the tender with full marks on the quality submission section. This was largely down to the personal level of service I received from Executive Compass® and continued assistance via email from Neil and his staff. Fantastic and educational day at a reasonable price.
