We are highly recommended by our clients. Below are just some of the references PAWA Consulting Ltd has received for our Purchasing, Supply Chain, training and consultancy work:
We engaged PAWA consulting to advise us on industrial applications of a new platform technology which we have developed. They produced an excellent report on time and with considerable detail, which made us fully aware of where we should put effort, and areas that would not be fruitful. I recommend them most highly.

The most beneficial piece of research that we have ever used
Chris O’Donoghue, Championships Promoter, British Open Squash
During 2003/04 PAWA Consulting won a research project to look at the growth potential of sports related social enterprises in the East Midlands. This research was completed to a high and professional standard. Communication from PAWA during the term of the consultancy was outstanding and they exceed expectations in terms of the flexibility of their approach and willingness to go the extra mile.
In addition the work involved liaison and consultation with a wide range of partners from the sports and social enterprise sectors all of whom fed back in a positive manner. I would have no hesitation recommending them for future work.
Sarah Davies, Economic Inclusion Manager, East Midlands Development Agency
I have worked with PAWA on a number of different occasions and they have always delivered on-time and on-budget and get to the heart of complex issues.
Russell Turner, Sport England
I would like to thank your for your time and excellent presentation given at ISP’s Western European Annual Sales Meeting. I was particularly pleased with:
1. The preparation work and how you tried to understand our company and base your presentation around this
2. The format of the presentation with a strong ‘hands on’ element
3. Your effective communication with people where English is a second language.
Once again thank you and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Multisol were delighted with the results of the thorough PAWA investigations into our overall procurement and logistics operations. Their recommendations enabled us to see the wood in spite of the trees. Although it is early days the initial results of our reorganisation are promising.
Paul Oliphant, Managing Director, Multisol Ltd
PAWA Consulting helped us to launch our Improved Buying Seminars and Consultancy Service. We put our toe in the water with little more than an idea and he turned it into a successful initiative with a range of repeat business. He is experienced in his subject and relates well to the needs of clients.

Paul Wright’s consultancy helped greatly with the launch of our supply side project and in particular with the training events undertaken to raise the profile of the project within the organisation. The training undertaken by Paul not only added value directly to the project, but helped to raise commercial awareness within the organisation.
John Timson, Procurement Manager, Rugby Cement
Paul Wright spent some months working with the Klea Business, helping us to think through and develop an effective supply side strategy. Paul’s guidance was invaluable in helping the management team to start from first principles, identify the size of the problem and the potential reward and then to prioritise the key areas for action. He helped us to put this into a succinct and actionable plan and then delivered a very effective training package to cascade the strategy through the business.
Paul’s training consultancy followed on from his work with us on the supply side strategy and was aimed at providing common tools and techniques and a common language for the delivery phase of the strategy. The training was very well planned and worked at all levels throughout the business. Paul’s personal style as a trainer is excellent, holding the attention of his audience and delivering the key messages succinctly.
Tom Crotty, Business Manager, Klea
I was the Commercial Manager responsible for a large portion of ICI’s Capital Asset Purchasing. I was asked to look at how best to develop the commercial skills of ICI Technology Project Managers. I asked Paul Wright to develop a 1-day intensive training programme. The programme drew together elements of best practice in purchasing and project management, and was presented to senior project managers. This event was successful in improving commercial knowledge and identified opportunities for improvements and savings.
