Client testimonial: Competency Plus Ltd

“I would just like to take this opportunity to share my experience with Sarah Downs during our initial consultation workshop. We appointed Sarah Downs (by recommendation) to assist us in increasing our awareness to other organisations within the oil and gas industry, with a view to elevating our exposure and the services we provided. Sarah was extremely approachable and immediately demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of what our needs were as a business. She effortlessly provided direction and constructive feedback as to how we could progress effectively. Her broad network and the ability to make the right introductions benefitted our cause. Her willingness to help only adds to the impressive service that she provides. Sarah Downs comes highly recommended.”
Altaf Shaikh, Managing Director, Competency Plus Ltd

Client testimonial: Interdive

“Sarah has worked extensively with Interdive Services Ltd for almost a year, across a wide range of consulting assignments. I initially engaged with her (following a recommendation) for support with the business development strategy and overall business focus. Sarah then went on to help with the internal business processes (including triple ISO certification and CRM), client engagement, identifying and engaging with commercial partners and supply chain, market research, assistance with full re-brand, marketing and web development, office relocation and potential government funding. Sarah’s support has been invaluable during a period of significant change and growth within the business and I would fully recommend and endorse her excellent interpersonal skills, breadth of knowledge of the industry and commercial approach”

Craig Sawkins, Managing Director, Interdive Services Ltd

Client testimonial: Blaze Solutions

“I would call Sarah an incredible BD resource to Blaze. Sarah’s ability to swiftly cut through to our needs and to see opportunities for Blaze within her network of contacts meant we went from a standing start right into the heart of a new sector with one email. Diversification has been very important to Blaze and just a conversation with Sarah enabled her to understand where we stood in the market and what sectors were possible for our entry. I would recommend Sarah to anyone with a company of any size looking to diversity, she has worked very hard to create her network and is well respected at every level.”

Ann Johnson, Director, Blaze Manufacturing Solutions Ltd

Client testimonial: Quirk Solutions

“Sarah is one of the best business development and relationship building individuals I have ever come across. She has an innate understanding of what you as the client needs, but, just as importantly, she knows how best to engage with potential opportunities on your behalf. She accompanies you alongside initial conversations with new connections, ensuring that it is a positive experience for both sides. I found her nuanced and intelligent in the best way to build a rapport with new contacts and she is an asset to any business looking to expand its client base in a highly effective manner.”

Chris Paton, Managing Director, Quirk Solutions

Client testimonial:

“We recently completed a discovery session with Sarah and it’s something I believe every business should invest in. Sometimes there is nothing more valuable than a knowledgeable 3rd party looking at your business, making you see the obvious, and then work out your own solution. Sarah is extremely knowledgeable in business development, very good at asking the right questions, to find out where your business is at the moment, where you want it to go and how to put a plan in place to get it there. The hard work starts now, but since my discovery session I believe I am working towards our business goals in a more focused and purposeful manner”

Bruce Skinner, Director, PISYS.Net Aberdeen Ltd

Client testimonial: Appetite for Business

“As a fresh pair of eyes Sarah is super, she really listens and always considers what would best suit the business, rather than take a solution that has worked for another. She advises on the best networking and BD opps to suit. 100% reliable, friendly, customer focused and keen to help. I would have no hesitation recommending Sarah.”

Sheryl Newman, Managing Director, Appetite for Business
