"The results have exceeded all my expectations"
Archive Service Manager
I am more than happy to endorse you as a possible consultant and advisor across the heritage sector. Your skill and focus drove through most of the achievements of the Regional Archives Council and also much of the work of MLA North West. The work you have carried out for Lancashire, involving user satisfaction and modernising services have been of great benefit to me as a manager, and I hope the opportunity will come again for us to work together, I would not hesitate to recommend you to others, not only for heritage related consultancy but in the wider management sphere.
County Heritage Manager
Lancashire County Council
I've been really pleased with the way your team have delivered the [Activity] plan and the final document is excellent. More importantly it is a document that we can use - It was also good
that we were able to 'tailor' the plan so that it was something that would work within our organisation. Your team got the right balance of listening to the client, but also pushing us into the right
Kevin Bolton, Archives+ Manager
Cumbria Archive Service has submitted a substantial bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to purchase the papers of a well known writer. Janice has assisted us on two occasions; firstly assessing the collection, identifying contents and assessing its potential to support learning and access for all age groups. Secondly Janice has taken the lead in developing our final application to HLF which requires a detailed statement about the collection, its potential audience and the means by which we would build new audiences for the archive. We were also required to submit a detailed budget and cashflow for the duration of the project and succesfully raise a substantial match fund. Janice has done an outstanding job for us and I have no hesitation in recommending Janice.
