As a small business we value an external view to inform our business plans. Dennis brought a wealth of business experience which was a great help to direct our business plans and activities. He worked in a warm and open style which encouraged the best ideas to flourish throughout the team.

Terry Lewis Managing Director Team Europe
Dennis was instrumental in preparing and presenting Team Europe’s software BRIEF© to a multinational corporation consisting of several higher management personnel present. He presented with confidence and made everyone feel at ease.
We found him to be very professional in his approach to business and would recommend him to anyone in addition to utilising him again in the future if required.

Dennis’ coaching enabled us to gain real clarity and a sense of direction within our business. We were stagnating a little, struggling to break away from the day to day and really getting to grips with developing our company. Our sessions with Dennis allowed us to take a real step back and look at what was important. From these we’re able to put in place the processes and training we needed to enjoy solid growth. Business should be fun…..our coaching session were certainly as fun as they were productive! Many thanks.
Richard Crooks Head of GrowthAccelerator Training Oxford Innovation
Dennis did a fantastic job for us. He helped us initially to shape the content of the workshops to make them punchy and inspiring. He then went on to deliver this content in a style that was engaging, practical and (deliberately) thought-provoking. The workshops were very well received by the companies attending. We had no hesitation, from the initial workshops delivered by Dennis in retaining his services for through-out the programme.
Sometimes – when you are managing these things – you need someone like Dennis who takes all the worry and hassle away. You want someone who you can rely on to turn up and do a no-nonsense, fantastic job for you. This is what we got from Dennis!”
Michael Craine Managing Director Cranfield Colours
The team at Cranfield and Spectrum Paints are pleased to provide a wholehearted recommendation for Dennis Clarke. With a characteristic smile, listening ear and astute questioning, Dennis consistently helps us make informed decisions for the challenges we share with him. Dennis appreciates that as a smaller company, we do not always have the resources, time or inclination to embrace every modern management techniques. Instead Dennis uses those strategies that help us get the best from each session, managing to engage with all colleagues at every level… even the most reluctant!
Dennis provides uniquely competent, qualified and experienced consultancy. We have found his input invaluable both in providing direct guidance on specific issues and when acting as a facilitator when we have needed assistance working through more general strategic issues.
Rob Cousins Managing Director Affinity Training & eLearning For you
The great thing about bringing Dennis into our company apart from his personality and experience was he gave us an independent overview of where we were and then worked with us to ensure we knew where we wanted to go! For me Dennis didn’t so much provide the answers as create an environment where we started to find out for ourselves what we need to know. Working with Dennis was a very positive experience for us all and I would recommend him.”
Tony Crutcher Managing Director
Dennis is a very professional and personable senior executive who has a genuine desire to help others. Dennis’s expertise in marketing and strategic management is without question and whilst having held some very senior global positions with well-known brands, is also capable of steering small companies to profitable growth. As consultants, Dennis and his associates have the added attributes of being supportive, practical and give advice with a high degree of common sense and professionalism. A great international marketing expert and a truly nice fellow.
Duncan Wilson Director Edukey Education
Dennis worked with us on marketing & international trade advice. He took the time to understand our company, product and customers and used this to help us send a clear message to potential clients. He also gave us valuable advice on getting established overseas, which we have not achieved. Thanks Dennis!
Jem Skelding Managing Director Naissance e retailing
The help we received in looking at and understanding the opportunities and requirements for trading in foreign markets has been of great benefit. The face-to-face consultation and the fact that we are getting information specifically researched and tailored to our needs has also given us confidence that we are making our decisions with our eyes wide open.
Nigel Thomas CEO Blue Mountain Group Security Services
As soon as Dennis arrived at our offices he got straight to work, understanding the business, asking the right questions and then providing feedback and a worksheet ready for his next visit.
Dennis painted a very clear picture of what was needed and also kept it simple. Being a small company with limited resources, keeping it simple, is key to our success.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Dennis.
