As creative management consultants our experience has covered a broad range of clients and sectors. The following reflect client feedback:

“Our current success and the enhanced reputation that we now enjoy are in no small measure due to the changes which Eric Schneider helped us to accomplish and the issues he forced us to face. All the partners have reason to be grateful for his involvement in Sheppard Robson”
Richard Young, Sheppard Robson

“Eric is both a genuinely skilled and observant “creative” and an effective and gritty strategic consultant, able intelligently and articulately to evaluate the needs and objectives of others on their own terms, rather than simply by reference to himself. I have known and worked with Eric on a number of projects over 10 years or so. He has been: a valued counsellor… ; a considered, original and creative group leader…; a coach and strategic analyst …; and he has acted as a sounding board for the development of the customer proposition in a specialist construction business. His concept-design contribution to two substantial new-build residential projects transformed their prospects for success at both planning and sales stages. Throughout, I have also valued Eric’s ideas and contributions on diverse small issues such as logo-design, the content, tone & ‘pitch’ of web sites and brochures, aspects of overhead management and even preparation for important meetings and presentations. What I like about Eric is that he is prepared to get to the nuts & bolts; he can bring real rigour to the table. He can also be relied on to take a step back from time to time and try to lift one’s head up to the horizon that lies ahead.”
Chris Agace, Chalk Hill

“We have referred back to the consultancy exercise on many occasions and remarked on the value and pertinence of the resulting advice. A very worthwhile exercise … invaluable insight from an impartial third party”
Maggie Town, Town Group Creative

“I used to have sympathy with the view that management consultants simply borrow your watch to tell you the time, only to walk off with it. My experience with Eric Schneider has been very different. Eric borrowed my watch, told me why it was running slightly out, then gave it back - pointing out that with a bit of cleaning it would be worth more than I had thought possible. Eric gave my consultancy the kind of invaluable independent perspective that I hope we give to our clients”
Robert Smith, Jog Limited

“…his consultancy makes you want to win - every time …”
Gunther Feuschel, GMW Architects

"Excellent overall insight into our clients’ perceptions of us (and) our standing within the competition; Eric was particularly good at presenting the information in ‘plain English’ and inspiring us when not all the news was great"
Andrew Pianiatti, Finish Creative Services

“We were impressed by the speed with which Eric got to the heart of what we do … he immediately gained the trust of both our staff and clients enabling him to provide us with a clear accurate critique of our business”
Robert Mathews, BPP

“Eric Schneider came highly recommended for the task; he exceeded expectations. Through his astute and tactful guidance we have and are achieving development ambitions which I would have not thought possible”
Lyn Edwards, GMW Architects

“I have enjoyed our meetings over the years and again I thank you for your contribution to our reorganisation. You have been an important catalyst to my/our thought process and our more conventional thinking. We believe that this has helped us move forward considerably over the past couple of years”
Stephen Limbrick, Stephen Limbrick Associates

"The project was an important step in identifying a long term direction for our business. We gained a great deal of insight into our industry and others’ perceptions of us. Eric helped us to identify and create a much more corporate culture"
Todd Carpenter, Travel Trust Association

“Eric Schneider is an outstanding management and business consultant. Even his free up-front session gave me invaluable ideas for growing my business. In the paid consultancy which followed I have gained a clear idea of where I am heading and what I need to do the get there. I have already taken significant actions that are moving my business forward. Eric's consulting is worth its weight in gold”
Graham Price, CEO Abicord

“The exercise and the outputs were most useful… it was a pleasure working with Eric Schneideron this most useful and rewarding assignment”
Peter Siddall, Siddall & Company

“ … in summary, the management presentations that you prepared for us and the subsequent working sessions that you facilitated have acted as a springboard and contributed to a substantial increase in our turnover and profitability and helped put us in a stronger position to address current and future markets … ”
Richard Shennon, Fulcrum Consulting

“… The project was well worth the cost - and the time commitment from the management, whom it enabled, in calm surroundings, and with adequate time, to be taken through the advice and to reflect on it. As a result of it and the changes that we (subsequently) made, our profitability has improved significantly”
David Parker, David Parker Architects

“… Eric Schneider identified, very quickly, our strengths and our potential shortcomings… There have (since) been very positive developments internally with internal crits, design meetings, marketing meetings and delivery group meetings all going on at different times … His interaction with our clients …acted as a catalyst for us to have follow-up discussions with them addressing issues which ordinarily may have been overlooked… A very positive experience …”
John Burrows, Burrows Cave International

“…Eric quite simply opened our eyes to the real potential of the business and to a direction for developing and managing it into the future, building on our strengths. He interviewed all our staff gaining an independent view on our culture and the personal aspirations of our key team members. He also carried out customer surveys that have given us an independent external perspective on our service and product. This insight into both our team’s and our clients’ needs have helped significantly to develop a relevant and deliverable vision for the future ”
John Baulch, LHC Group
