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 that not only met the project brief but clearly exceeded it.
All of this was done in such a way that participants felt heard and understood, regardless of cultural boundaries. Barrie seems to relish not only the challenge of understanding and processing organisational issues, but also the opportunity to strengthen and empower organisations and the individuals within them.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Barrie and nVision Consulting for grant audits, monitoring and evaluation, and organisational capacity building in general.
