What Clients Say

British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS)

“We approached EP to support the Association in developing a five-year strategy. EP has a practical approach and we benefited from the ongoing support we received after our initial away day to write our strategic and operational plans. EP’s business model is such that they get to know their clients and then identify consultants that best suit the specific needs and culture of individual organisations. I would not hesitate to recommend them”

Anne Bishop, Chief Executive

“Eastside Primetimers were not only vastly experienced in the support process but had expertise with organisations that have a social heart and are not-for-profit which is integral to our values and culture.

“Having attended one of their regular merger roundtables to learn about the landscape and explore our options, we chose Eastside Primetimers to help us find the right partner for us, in line with our new business plan.

Jeremy Grey, Chief executive
Care4All

“Eastside Primetimers are a great organisation to work with. They very quickly demonstrated an understanding of Care4All’s requirements and then led us through the process, which was a totally new one for us. The consultant Jane Jutsum and colleagues are highly skilled and knowledgeable and their input has already resulted in significant improvements to our business processes and governance arrangements. I would without reservation recommend working with Eastside Primetimers; they have shown themselves to be experts in their field, demonstrating innovation and creativity in their approach”

Jo Barnes, Managing Director, Managing Director
Chilypep

“Working with Eastside Primetimers and their consultant Helen Nott really helped us explore our idea. Developing the business case increased our understanding of our options, and a better grasp of social value and measuring it will help us to show our stakeholders the real impact of our work. Helen was flexible, great to work with and took time to really understand our needs and who we are. Her work to help us develop our branding and identity has been a real game changer”
