“I thought I would take the opportunity to let you know how impressed and pleased we have been with Bex and the services provided through Clarke Willmott. Normally I have quite a low opinion of consultants and I would say Bex has probably been the best we have ever had in 30 years, adding real value.”
Nick Scoon, Managing Director, Wrapex and Procare UK Limited
“Bex and I worked really closely together setting up the HR function at Wasserman and her support, patience and depth of experience were absolutely invaluable. Bex is extremely generous with her guidance, persistent when she needs to be and always delivery focused. She has an easy, friendly manner and I really enjoyed working with her. We always managed to have a laugh and I can’t recommend her enough!”
