We have worked with PES for a number of years and their helpful and pragmatic approach to some tricky situations has been invaluable. What is refreshingly different about Cathy, Lisa and Pam is that they are as far away from the fence as is needed to help a SME like Winford Ford. The value is having them sift through the flack to give us a clear solution with no fluff. In addition to the great advice to equip us to cope with the day-to-day trials and tribulations of dealing with people, they have provided fantastic line manager training to enable us to upskill our managers and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.Justin Taylor – Winford Ford

As the CEO of The UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres I am delighted to recommend PES.

We pay a monthly retainer which keeps the costs down for our charity. I would thoroughly recommend them.Dr Penny Fidler – CEO
PES, Cathy Monaghan in particular, has provided me with outstanding support and service.
