Ian supported Barnardo’s Oxfordshire locality over a period of 9 months to write and successfully secure our re-tender for our residential and short-breaks service contract valued at over £15m with Oxfordshire County Council and a £500k Oxford Health NHS sub-contract. Ian also supported the region in the implementation and mobilisation of these contracts and provided a valuable and cost-efficient resource in a very professional manner. I would highly recommend Ian and IHCL for interim management support and business development growth.
