Station House Community Association, Rotherham - Charlotte Williams, Chief Executive
Wendy is a total professional, she has worked tirelessly with me tohelp reduce my charities costs. Unlike so many, she is never pushyand takes time to really understand my business needs. She is apleasure to work with.
Mums in Need, Sheffield - Laura Riley, Founder & CEO
I am Laura Riley, Founder and CEO of Mums in Need (MIN), a domestic abuse charity which supports mums who have left abusive relationships and are rebuilding their lives, based in South Yorkshire.
When I met Wendy 5 years ago, 3 years prior to Mums In Need (MIN) being a registered charity, I didn’t have a clue what to do of where to turn.
My background is in mental health nursing, not in the voluntary sector or the business sector. I had no idea how to set up as a charity, what was needed, what had to be done, why networking events were so important, what expectation business had of us, what funding routes to go down, what the corporate world was like, how to manage the bills or what the requirements were to run an organisation.
Wendy sat me down and went through all the different areas of what I needed to know at a pace that suited me. She provided me with helpful bits of advice to help my organisation grow, meet its goals and stretch its targets. Wendy has provided MIN with information and also training/advice on the benefits of outsourcing. Over the years, she has provided me with a number of significant contacts which have helped MIN to develop and grow. Wendy has been the link between MIN and the corporate world. She has basically helped me to bridge the gap between the corporate world and the voluntary sector. Wendy is extremely knowledgeable in her field, she is also kind and considerate.
It has been an absolute pleasure having Wendy’s input, guidance and friendly face alongside us during this challenging journey and we plan to keep her on our side moving forward.
Thanks Wendy for your help over the years.
Skills Brokerage, Chesterfield - James
Let’s Save conducted a thorough review of all our business costs, and was able to save us money in several areas. Wendy Ward was a pleasure to deal with, and I’m happy to recommend her services to others.
RSPCA Sheffield Animal Rescue - Tony Benham, General Manager
As a Charity every penny is important to us, Wendy came to our rescue and found we were over paying on a lot of our services, so even when you think you have a good deal, a better one may be out there, so why not let a friendly professional find that put for you.
Manor Training & Resource Centre, Sheffield - Samantha Nicholson
Wendy provides such an easy and efficient solution to a problem that business owners all face. If, like me, you have little time but want the best deal for things like energy, telephone, waste management, then you should contact Wendy, she has helped me save our company thousands of pounds over the last few years, which it vital to us as a charity. Thanks Wendy!
Engage in People - Maria Elliott
Wendy is one of the most thoughtful and professional business people I have had the pleasure of working alongside. She is so willing and able to help others – this has to be one of the best qualities in business – a selflessness that leads to reciprocity, by it’s very nature. She is savvy and on the ball – looking to make businesses more efficient and cost-conscious. I have no hesitation in recommending Wendy and the services she offers to anyone. A pleasure to know and work with!
ATB Rider Training - Nigel Bickerstaff
Wendy was highly recommended to me, since taking over responsibility for reviewing our costs, Wendy has advised us and assisted us in being able to get out of our old telecoms contract where our supplier had mis-sold to us and had been over-charging us. She has secured a much better telecoms deal for us now with a much easier and cheaper billing system. She has been able to save us money substantially on our Gas supply here, getting us a new contract with a better supplier. Wendy also introduced me to a fantastic insurance broker who got me great cover and a health insurance specialist who has sorted me great cover.
Wendy always takes away the problems and I can trust her to tell me honestly what is what with my business costs.
N&S Group - Peter Newman
Wendy has provided an invaluable avenue for connecting us with professionals outside of our own network, that we would otherwise have had to do our own research to find, sourcing without personal recommendation at our own risk. The quality of Wendy’s connections have been of a very high standard and we are now dealing successfully with a business who then introduced us to other useful connections.
Our own accountant has found an opportunity to also do some business alongside the wealth advisor we found through the new network, again as a result of Wendy’s effective connections. We continue to work with Wendy and her pool, as an excellent extension of our own efforts to further our reach into other business communities, hopefully this time with a view to creating opportunities for our own companies – N and S Group and Mexborough Business Centre. I would recommend Wendy with total confidence.
Signs Express - Steve Morris
Wendy has not only helped us to reduce costs on our Gas and Electric bills but she has also helped us to introduce a new credit card payment system, securely and cost-effectively dispose of our confidential documents and helped us to recycle more of our waste materials. Wendy has comprehensive experience of a wide variety of businesses and she quickly identified opportunities for us to make cost improvements within our company. We have been very impressed with the professionalism of both Wendy and her industry contacts, which she constantly reviews to ensure that they are of the highest calibre.
Whilst Wendy herself has a very friendly, knowledgeable and relaxed manner, she also gave “gentle but firm guidance” when appropriate, which is exactly what we needed because it is very easy to be deflected from implementing change when faced with the issues of the day. We probably wouldn’t have made any changes without Wendy’s help.
Amy and Adam from Club Baize, Beighton, Sheffield
Can’t thank Wendy enough for all help she has given us at the club reducing our bills, the amount of time she has saved us is incredible, she’s been absolutely fantastic in being able to help us in all different areas of work from bills to building work to sanitation, been able to get us the best possible prices and quality. Thank you so much for all your help.
Linda Benn, Greystones Medical Centre, Sheffield
My name is Linda Benn and I am the Practice Manager at Greystones Medical Centre.Managing a GP Surgery is a busy and consuming job, so when I discovered Wendy and realised the width of her skill set, it lifted a heavy burden from my shoulders. Wendy helped me centralise our utilities and building contracts, reviewed them to ensure they were cost effective and relevant, allowing me to focus on my day to day role and provide our patients a quality service.
Wendy’s perspective and knowledge helped me to look at things objectively and review renewals rather than let them roll on. She has an address book to envy, with great contacts supporting small local businesses.
The cost review Wendy provided in an accessible and easy to understand format, will be the main document I will use this year to manage costs and remain in budget.
Wendy is friendly, approachable and available. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
with my kindest regards
