We were highly recommended Cheryl from a close friend whom had been through the same process.

We started working with her at the end of February 2014, when she provided us with a very in-depth two-day internal audit. During this initial visit, Cheryl identified that the certification body we had been progressing with were not UKAS accredited, with her extensive knowledge and contacts within the industry Cheryl was able to put us in touch with a certification company that were UKAS accredited, and could offer us a auditor experienced in our industry.

Cheryl was extremely pro-active, she provided us with exceptional support and guidance, with regard to processes, forms, legislation and environmental training, and we received our certifications to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 at the beginning of June!

We would highly recommend Cheryl’s consultancy service. We look forward to continuing to work with Cheryl and count ourselves lucky to have her as our consultant!"
