Testimonials about our work
Consultancy & Tendering
‘I have known Nick for many years since she joined the sector in the role of Chief Executive for ROCC, and I have always rated her knowledge and skills highly. Nick has directly worked with us as a consultant since 2011, focussing on supporting us in the area of Business Development when we developed a growth strategy to double the numbers of young people we supported over a five year period. She has acted as a bid writer for us in a number of important tender exercises and her significant experience in this area has allowed us to win 100% of the bids submitted, which in turn has significantly contributed to the successful achievement of our growth strategy to date. She has also facilitated Board discussions for us around specific tactics within Business Development. For a period of 8 months Nick also carried internal responsibility within Step by Step around Business Development whilst I was on maternity leave.
Nick is extremely bright and quick thinking and has excellent judgement. Her communication and influencing skills, both verbal and written are very strong, and she is always highly professional in her work. She has a very easy style and likeable character and her strong personal values shine through. She has regularly gone the extra mile to make tight deadlines workable. Overall we have developed a very high level of trust in her approach, capability and professionalism, and I hope that we will be able to work with her for many years to come.
'Nick has worked with us for several years and is an invaluable team member. Her knowledge of specialist areas is deep, and she applies it to the benefit of our clients to the extent where she has won over £2m of contracts for one client alone'
'From the effective delivery of comprehensive tender writing training through to extensive 1:1 consultancy support, Nichola offered invaluable advice and practical assistance that undoubtedly contributed to our successful tender to provide Homelessness Prevention accommodation services in Bristol. Nichola was always constructive, clear and willing to share her time and experience with our team; we could not recommend her strongly enough.'
We were fortunate enough to have the services of Nichola Goom as a consultant through ROCC when our organisation wanted to consider a modernisaation programme.
The subsequent report has made a significant difference to the way we are going to approach the restructuring and modernisation of our clubs. We are indebted to ROCC for their support and indeed for the professionalism of the Modernisation Programme Report.
