I work with Emma as a Grant Mentor on the SEBB Grants Programme. Emma said:
"I've worked with Jeremy for 18 months or so now as grant mentors on a business grants programme in the South East.
"He's ace - if you're looking for grant support and mentoring then you could do far worse than having Jeremy on your side!
"He's diligent, supportive and really understands what's right for both the applying businesses and the awarding bodies. This is a great skill to have and one which comes from experience and exposure to many different schemes and sectors.
"And he's fun to work with so he makes the process both productive and enjoyable! I'd recommend Jeremy without a doubt."
We helped Richard with preparing a Grant Application to fund a re-invention of the business due to CV19. Richard said:
"Jeremy's understanding of the funding assistance options available to businesses during COVID-19 was of great support to me when working through our plan.
"He took time to listen and understand our business needs before offering the most suitable options, this saved a huge amount of time and ensured that I could make an informed decision.
"Jeremy's attention to detail, experience and impartial view was extremely valuable."
I've worked with & around Crawley Borough Council for many years & always enjoyed a positive, if occasionally robust, relationship. Cllr Peter Smith was kind enough to say:
"Jeremy is someone that is widely known and respected in the business community, and one of the few people able to conceive a better vision for the future as well as constantly working to further the interests of business and the economy both in Crawley and the wider area.
"I have valued Jeremy's advice, support and friendship over the last six years and would recommend him without reservation."
We've worked with Julie on a number of projects and introductions. She said:
"Jeremy was instrumental in making introductions that have secured strong stakeholder and business engagement. These links have resulted in partnerships that include the Manor Royal BID and Gatwick Hotel Association and the airport.
"If Jeremy were an animal, he would be a truffle hog - he has an innate ability to sniff out quality opportunities and surface them."
We have worked extensively with Gatwick Airport on promoting the Master Plan to Stakeholders & Influencers. Although that work has been paused due to CV19, Tim told us:
"Jeremy’s intimate knowledge of the business community and his extensive network of contacts proved invaluable to the development and delivery of the Airports Draft Master Plan in 2018 and 2019.
"By utilising Jeremy’s contacts, knowledge and experience the Airport has been able to extend its reach into key business and education communities, making sure that all parties fully understand the issues and opportunities that the growth of the Airport brings. This includes ensuring the economic benefits of the Airport are aligned with business aspirations and objectives.
"I would not hesitate in recommending Jeremy to anyone thinking of using his services."
Even before our most recent work with the LEP, I've had a good working relationship with the organisation & members of the team. Malcolm explains why:
"Jeremy is the consummate professional. He has built up an enviable list of contacts locally, regionally and nationally.
He is totally focused on adding value to the service he provides.
"We first chose to work with Jeremy due to his wide range of relevant experience and knowledge as well as the connections he makes."
We have worked with Carole on a number of Events, hosting, facilitating & chairing some really engaging sessions. She told us:
"Jeremy has always been brilliant at combining his humour with his extensive knowledge.
"He always prepares for the event and, as an organiser, I can sit back and relax with the knowledge it is safe hands.
"I would 100% recommend Jeremy as a speaker, facilitator and chairperson."
A few comments from attendees at recent workshop and event hosting, facilitating and chairing:
"I'm somewhat in awe, and envious too, of quite how you are able to engage an audience and build a following."
“Loved Jeremy’s wicked sense of humour … wonderful host”
“Jeremy, you make a great Facilitator!”
“You imparted the necessary information, made it relevant to the audience and encouraged their responses”
Wilky Group have been pursuing development plans in the region for some years now and it was good to play a small role in that work. Sally confirmed our work ethic when she said:
"Jeremy and his network of contacts have proved invaluable to us in our work in the Gatwick Diamond area.
"He is one of the most efficient and reactive consultants that we have ever used - before you are back at your desk, Jeremy has started to deal with his action points from a meeting."
I first worked with Steve as a Founding Director of Manor Royal BID. Steve was generous in saying:
"Jeremy is one of those rare people who combines intelligence and insight with the ability to effectively communicate with a range of audiences in an engaging way, vital for building consensus and conveying ideas.
"I have known him for many years throughout my career in economic development and in helping to develop the Manor Royal BID."
Leila was one of my first International Contacts and was of great help in positioning the business with clients in Spain & the EU. Leila speaks great English, so I didn't need to translate this:
"I have been collaborating with Jeremy for almost a year now and his insight of the market, experience in the field and dedication have been an inspiration for me.
"I am always looking forward to our talks, because he manages to always actively listen, give advice and offer help."
Following on from working with Nass on a number of projects & speaking at an event he delivered, he kindly said:
"Jeremy is an outstanding business connector, facilitator, speaker and influencer.
"I have witnessed many of his business talks and presentations. They are clear, concise and precise, and they certainly cut through the noise.
"He has the ability to make you feel at ease, whilst constructively challenging you, and the way you conduct your business.
"Very highly recommended."
