  • Working with Barrie has been a great experience

    Working with Barrie has been a great experience.  He has gently and kindly opened our eyes to what compliance with the new Standards meant for us.  Barrie looked at the work that we prepared for our meetings, and in discussion, helped us to consider what the standard would be for our setting and how we […]

  • PQASSO – we emerge a stronger organisation.

    Barrie has patiently worked with us towards our PQASSO accreditation, despite changes of our staff and the updated PQASSO.  Barrie has calmly and kindly helped us to understand the process and explain how best to meet the criteria in a practical and appropriate way, so that the process is positive rather than onerous. His approach […]

  • Barrie’s facilitation skills have been exceptional

    Barrie structured his Organisational Strengths Review to our requirements whilst using the PQASSO framework as a benchmark. Barrie’s facilitation skills and final report have been exceptional. The process celebrated our recent achievements but also highlighted areas for improvement. His detailed observations have helped the Senior Management Team to prioritise our work plan and give balanced […]

  • No hesitation in recommending Barrie

    Barrie provided a great combination of insight, analysis and personability in delivering an ‘end of grant’ independent audit for a Comic Relief grant for 2 of our Ethiopian partner NGOs. It was a reasonably complex assignment and Barrie was able to assimilate complex information, formulate an appropriate assessment process, and swiftly produce analysis and reports […]

  • There is real value in PQASSO

    Barrie has convinced me that there is real value in the PQASSO kitemark, because to achieve it we have made one or two very positive changes to the way our charity operates. Jenny Hopkins – CEO, Gloucestershire Deaf Association.

  • A turning point for our organisation

    Barrie’s facilitation of our discussion and helping us to delve deeper in to the meaning of our work, what is important and what is measurable was really valuable and provided a turning point for our organisation. We couldn’t have done this without a fresh pair of eyes and expertise. Off the back of this work […]

  • We have found the process very helpful

    Barrie has been an excellent mentor as we’ve gone through the Level 1 PQASSO self-assessment process with him. He is sympathetic and understanding of the voluntary and community sector’s realities and peculiarities; he has quickly got his head around our own organisation’s uniqueness; and he has sensitively made sure that our self-analysis has been thorough. […]

  • We are now operating more efficiently

    Barrie has been invaluable in supporting Allsorts through a time of significant growth and change. Initially he came in to the organisation to guide us through a PQASSO level 2 self assessment, and subsequently made an independent evaluation for the end of a Big Lottery grant term, and an organisational strength review for the beginning […]

  • I would certainly be happy to recommend Barrie!

    Forest Pulse first used the Services of Barrie Wyatt from nVision Consulting to advise and support us in relation to the charity applying for PQASSO (Practical Quality Assurance System for Small Organisations). The charity commissioned Barrie following very positive feedback from a closely linked organisation with a very similar remit to ourselves who also used […]
