About Let’s Save Consultancy Services
WHO is Let’s Save Consultancy Services?
Wendy Ward created Let’s Save Consultancy Services in 2015, having spent 16 years within the corporate world of Public Services and Not for Profit Recruitment with Hays plc. She has since spent her time learning how to be self employed and is now un-employable! Through her vast network of business contacts gained through business networking since 2008, Wendy has secured an enviable little black book of business service suppliers. Wendy is originally from Worcestershire, but as a Sheffield Hallam business graduate of 1992, she never went home and has settled now back in Sheffield, having worked in North, West and South Yorkshire locations. Wendy is married with two amazing children and they are her reason for doing what she does – demonstrating a strong work ethic, helping as many people as she can and always doing her best.
WHAT does Let’s Save do?
Everyone knows that Not for profit organisations, charities, social enterprises and community organisations can get distracted by the amazing work they do and sometimes don’t have the skills, experience or business acumen to negotiate with their business service suppliers as they could. Wendy provides “business savvy-ness” for organisations, leaving them to continue to do the “good stuff” whilst Wendy gets the best value, fit for purpose and compliant services required. Wendy always gives a FREE Core Cost Review to third sector businesses and is happy to broker these services or provide advice from whole of market providers.
Wendy can provide a sounding board for Charity Leaders where she can undertake SWOT analysis and advise on growth strategy consultancy using marketing, funding, outsourcing and compliance checking techniques. Wendy can also work on a project basis, managing supplier engagement processes, and supplier problem resolution. Workshops and learning sessions are also available on demand, bespoke to requirements, covering areas such as cost management, outsourcing, supplier problem resolution, supplier engagement, marketing and funding strategies for Charities/Not for Profits.
WHY use Let’s Save?
Running any type of organisation is difficult, but if you have the added pressure of compliance with the Charity Commission, learning all you have to do on the job as well as dealing with some complex project delivery, then you may need some extra help. Wendy provides that one to one help and support that Not for Profit Leaders need in certain circumstances. Wendy provides required business connections, solves supplier problems, supports with brain-storming and project delivery by sharing her business knowledge and her understanding of the charitable sector culture. She has the skills and empathy to help Leaders on a long term basis as their organisation changes over time and needs different support techniques.
