    Carrley Business Consulting has really helped our organisation move forward in what has been an incredibly difficult market. Their consultant was extremely professional and personable and his hands on style was greatly appreciated by our whole team.

    This was a thoroughly worthwhile day. It is telling that the next time a tender discussion took place, the whole management team had their course literature with them and were able to talk in the same language. This has given us a template to follow and I am sure will add to the value and success of our organisation. LtdUniversity of York
