We engaged with Alistair and his team when looking for a partner to work with in shaping the Technology Service Operations Strategic Review.Director, Infrastructure and Operations, Major UK Charity.
Alistair brought together a complementary team that worked with the local group to bring a blend of thought leadership, value based service focus and aligned values to deliver the right medium team approach whilst accelerating in year benefits.
The team provided a good blend of skills and market understanding that brought key stakeholders together in a fact-based way whilst enabling a clear approach for implementation.
On a more personal note, I have very much enjoyed working with both Alistair and Tony. You were both there in the moments that really counted. I particularly value your perspective and steady calm approach. Thank you.
Just wanted to say thanks again for deft facilitation today. Before our session I was concerned that it may be difficult to engage some of our participants so I was really pleased at how engaged they all were. Great job!Director, Software Solutions, Education Sector
We worked with Alistair Russell and his colleagues for over two years, they provided a powerful combination of consulting services for me, my senior team and our extended senior management team. Specifically, we have got great value from:CIO, Leading Russell Group University
– Alistair’s regular, monthly participation as a “non-executive director” in my top team, advising and guiding our strategic development;
– independent assurance of our major programme to transform the organisation for the delivery of IT services across the university;
– combined facilitation and provision of subject management expertise in key areas as we have developed initiatives in such areas as performance metrics, value and the governance of risk;
– coaching and mentoring of key members of my senior team to deliver tangible leadership development.
What we appreciate most about working with Alistair and his team is their unique ability to apply their insight from extensive cross-sector experience with excellent consulting skills to be a “critical friend” for me and my senior team.”
