It’s the small changes that make a big difference.

Our Mission

            • Based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, we help charities make even more of a difference by helping them make the changes that soon add up to improve the way they work and how effective they are.

Our Services

We can provide personal consultancy support in a wide range of strategic and tactical areas. This will enable you to think strategically about the bigger picture and, where appropriate, help you find ways of solving your current issues. We would expect to have a short-term involvement with your organisation, and leave you with the capability to deliver long-term improvements. Whether you are concerned about large-scale organisational change, team building or personal development issues, we are here to help you with bespoke support targeting your unique requirements.

            • Trusted Charity Mentoring – as a NCVO licensed mentor (and Assessor) Barrie can help you become an official “Trusted Charity“, the most widely recognised quality standard in the voluntary sector.
            • Organisational health checks – to identify your strengths and weaknesses, and make changes.
            • National Lottery Community Fund strength reviews – we can help you identify your priorities and build your capability.
            • Independent end of project reviews – reporting how effective your work has been to your funders and other people you work with.
            • Coaching / Mentoring – support for people working in the voluntary sector, especially in leadership positions, helping you step back and develop your people and yourself as a leader.
            • Bespoke team away days – we develop and deliver charity team events around specific needs, such as developing your strategy.
            • Bespoke training sessions – we develop and deliver bespoke training for charities or groups of charities, such as theory of change (TOC) or monitoring and evaluation.
            • Gloucestershire Leaders Group – we co-lead a mutual self-support group for charity leaders.

Our Values

            • The values by which we run the business are:
              • Positive Impact – our aim is to make a positive impact in the local community, and our services are ultimately aimed at seeing lives changed for the better. We will do this by supporting organisations working in the Voluntary and Community Sector and helping them make a direct impact in the community. We understand and embrace the ripple effect – we know our positive impact will be multiplied many times over.
              • Integrity – is fundamental to success. If we can’t help you we will tell you and, wherever possible, suggest someone who can.
              • Value – our services will provide value in return for your investment of time and money. Where appropriate, we will provide some services pro bono.
              • Respect – we will treat you with the respect you would wish; it is your business and we will join with you in seeking your success. The support we provide will help you do better what you do best. Where the relationship really works we will learn as much from you as you will from us.
              • Challenge – we will challenge you in a fair and open way to give you the maximum opportunity of achieving your goals.
              • Excellence – leads to satisfaction.

Introducing Barrie Wyatt

            • Barrie makes things happen!
            • Barrie has enjoyed an extensive business background in the public sector and has worked at a senior level with organisations such as BP, IBM and Vodafone to create the first professional body for cyber security (the Chartered Institute of Information Security). For the past eight years Barrie has been using that professional experience to support charities. He has been Chair of Trustees at GAVCA for five years, is currently a trustee of GRCC, and is the only licensed mentor of the Trusted Charity (formerly known as PQASSO) quality standard in Gloucestershire. He is a qualified NLP Practitioner.
            • As those he has worked with will attest, he is firm but sensitive in his support, and enables charities to become more professional and thereby to be able to deliver even more benefit to their chosen clients. Barrie has a great insight into how charities work and has helped them identify and build on their strengths as well as develop in areas where they had weaknesses. He has helped some develop a better understanding of how to measure their effectiveness, and his underlying aim is to improve the effectiveness of the voluntary sector.
            • In his spare time Barrie enjoys sport, especially playing badminton, growing fruit and vegetables, developing his photography skills and watching plays with his wife Gill at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon. All his family play musical instruments but he has to settle for listening to music, making the most of volunteering at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival. And, when he has any additional spare time, he is a big fan of Brandon Sanderson fantasy novels.
