As well as helping us navigate the many 'new' challenges of the pandemic, our advisor arranged invaluable expert support and resources to help us shape our longer- term growth plans. More practically, this has meant that we have been able to bring forward several key growth projects much faster than would have otherwise been the case, including, work on the development of our team, help with our Carbon Net Zero ambitions, and support and advice on the sourcing key skilled Engineers, all vital initiatives to our business ambitions."
