CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

The Finishing Line Limited are experts in supply chain management and are the strategic choice when it comes to rapid, first class fulfilment, storage and logistics solutions.

Blackmore Four worked with us to clearly define the leadership behaviours and skills that are critical for us in sustaining our business performance. Leadership is an important topic at The Finishing Line, not just for our leadership team but for all colleagues who lead and aspire to lead.

Matthew (Director, Blackmore Four) was able to engage a wide range of colleagues from across the business to analyse our leadership needs and develop a Leadership Framework that we will use to reflect on our abilities and behaviours, further develop skills that are important to our business and identify others who demonstrate relevant leadership potential.

Blackmore Four’s expertise in this area coupled with their ability to offer us a fresh, objective and independent perspective in a manner that worked for all concerned was of real value.

Blackmore Four have been instrumental in the design and delivery of a strategy and programme of work that ensures the teams across our rapidly growing portfolio of international schools can be effective in adapting to the changes involved in implementing our core systems.

The expertise Blackmore Four provide in planning for and executing change in a variety of circumstances, coupled with their ability to understand our somewhat unique organisational culture and successfully manage a range of stakeholder needs has vastly improved our approach to systems implementation.

 In addition, the independence and objectivity that Matthew brings to our Finance and Technology teams is highly valued, adding a perspective and dimension to our decision making that we wouldn’t otherwise have and ensuring we bring decisions to action.

NextUp Comedy are an early stage start-up, founded by a team of four entrepreneurs with the vision of providing a digital home for stand-up comedy.

As a brand-new team who haven’t worked together before, Blackmore Four worked with us to develop a set of clear, strategic goals and improve our approach for planning, running and reporting of effective management meetings.

Matthew helped us gain clarity and focus, enabling us to make well thought out decisions based on collaboratively agreed criteria in a timely manner. He makes sure that everyone has a voice in the room and caters to our different personalities and requirements extremely respectfully.

We now have sufficient structure and clear outcomes in our collective decision making and everyone in the management team looks forward, knowing that our team approach is exceptionally useful.

Sarah Henley

Founder and COO, NextUp Comedy Limited

NextUp Comedy are an early stage start-up, founded by a team of four entrepreneurs with the vision of providing a digital home for stand-up comedy.

Matthew worked with us to develop a clear and consistently understood purpose and ambition for the company at a time when the team had worked through prolonged uncertainty and didn’t have an agreed basis for moving forward.  We were a very small organisation and used Matthew’s commercial outlook and business expertise to guide this process and get us to a clear position.

 Matthew took time to understand the different perspectives held by each of the Director’s and facilitated our review to define our shared purpose and agree how we would take things forward.
