    Again thanks for your time and expertise in getting this project done successfully especially in light of the very tight deadlines I had given you. But as you know only too well now, our company works only on a JIT basis!

    Helen proved instrumental in our transition to ISO9001:2015. FTi have held certification since 1994 and this latest iteration has helped focus the Senior Management Team to communicating business values throughout the organisation. A commitment to continuous improvement has been embraced by the business and already the benefits are being realised

    "It was a pleasure to work with Helen on our transition project. Helen’s advice, guidance and her ability to quickly understand our business and challenges has resulted in our numerous and mostly irrelevant documents, provided by a previous QMS company, have been completely revised in line with the new 2015 standards. We now have a Quality and Environmental Management system that is easy to understand, relevant to our business and is firmly embedded within our day to day operations.
    Thank you Helen."

It was a real pleasure to work with engaged professionals who genuinely had an interest in our business and our staff. At long last, we have a QMS that’s about us and reflects exactly what we do in our business operations. Well done ConsultQA, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your services."

    "Starting ISO9001 was a daunting task for us as Bristol Waste Company. Helen helped to make the task more manageable by breaking it down into simple processes and actions. She also became very much part of the team at BWC and worked well with all areas of the business and really got involved in understanding our whole operation. With Helen’s support we achieved our ISO 9001 with no amendments and are now looking to implement ISO 14001 with her support."

Multidisciplinary management

I work across quality, environmental and health and safety management disciplines, using the following standards:

I offer a free, no obligation meeting which usually takes place at your site and lasts about an hour – once I have got an understanding of your business and your management system requirements, I can put together a bespoke proposal for any implementation, improvement or integration project your business may need.
