”Stepping Out has been a boon to our efforts. Your consultant has made himself both respected and integral to us as I had hoped. Your consultancy has been fascinating, yet very focused and has helped greatly in getting people organised. Your consultant has quite literally been worth his weight in gold and it is difficult to imagine how we would have been able to respond to all need without him.Kevin Bond, CEO, NAViGO CIC
”Having been inspired by some of Craig's writing in Third Sector, we got in touch with Stepping Out to see if they'd be interested in carrying out our strategic review. They delivered an incredibly insightful piece of work and did so within a very tight timeframe. The team they put together was first class and well tailored to our work and circumstances; sharp, good humoured and able to strike the right balance between constructive criticism and supportive challenge, I can recommend Stepping Out most highly to other organisations.Rob Parkinson - Home-Start UK
