Joanne's testimonials

Our Consultant Jo Holden has been exceptional from day 1. She has been supportive and encouraging, she has been open and honest and is so approachable and easy to work with. She engages efficiently and confidently at all levels and has literally been a god send for me, going into something like this with no prior experience or knowledge of ISO - I was absolutely terrified and Jo gave myself and our Board of Directors the confidence not only to go for the two standards (9001, 14001) but to add on a 3rd (18001) and transition to 2015 on the first two within 5 months of initial certification. I cannot thank her or praise her enough. I would have no hesitation to recommend your services based on our fantastic experience with Jo. The service, support and experience has been exemplary.
