  • Working with Action Planning was an enriching experience for me and the team. We gained valuable knowledge and insights and underwent some extremely useful self-examination, which delivered a strengthened position for my service and our future plans.

    NORMA SPARK, BUSINESS LEAD, EVERY CHILD PROGRAMME, LONDON BOROUGH OF NEWHAM
  • I was absolutely happy with the service we received from Action Planning. The way David handled the workshop was very good. He threw in a few hand grenades and made us think hard about what we needed to do.

    DAVID WISDISH, TRUSTEE, HIGHWAY TRUST
  • Our relationship with Action Planning goes back many years and during my time here we have worked together on a number of projects. Outsourcing and having Hayley assigned to our benchmarking exercise again this year has saved a lot of time. Knowing she will conduct the exercise in a professional and timely manner, offers great peace of mind.

    PORTIA BORRETT, HEAD OF HUMAN RESOURCES AND OFFICE MANAGER, AID TO THE CHURCH IN NEED
  • David Saint has been around a long time and knows the industry very well. I like his thoroughness – he goes deeper than others to get to the root of a problem – and I knew that the Americans would trust him.

    JENS LEWELING, MANAGEMENT – MEDIA AND NONPROFIT, JOYCE MEYER MINISTRIES, GERMANY
  • I was really happy across the board with the service we received from Action Planning. It’s not often that we get together and think about things in that structured way. The whole process has been a really positive one and David’s report is already impacting on what we’re doing.
