And if you know your history …

Kevin Hitchcock and (a very fresh faced) Bernard Savage

In May 1987 Kevin Hitchcock, now a professional goalkeeping coach, helped Mansfield Town win their only ever Wembley Cup Final by saving two of the spot kicks in the penalty shoot-out with his feet.

This prompted him to say “who needs hands when you’ve got Size 10½s like me?” which we took to mean it’s the result that matters not the route… 

…the result’s always easier when you’ve got Size 10½ Boots.

And if you’d like to see the video of that special day …

What our clients say …

I think the lasting legacy of our work with Bernard and Doug is the formulation of our Client Value Proposition. I would recommend that every professional services organisation undertakes this exercise with them. It forces you to be clear about who you are and what you do – and once you are sure of that, it makes it much easier to tell clients why they should come to you.

Tony Hill, Senior Clerk, Ropewalk Chambers

“The client service reviews that Doug and Bernard have done for us are invaluable in reinforcing to us what is important to clients , and just occasionally identifying things we could do better. I am glad we have been brave enough to get third-party feedback , and it is money well spent. It helps us see if we are delivering the Client Value Proposition , or just kidding ourselves.

John Lawrence, Senior Partner, Barker Brettell LLP

“Bernard is always positive, and provides an excellent service. He is a great motivator and team builder, and he engenders confidence in all the people he works with. He has been a valuable member of our marketing team and has provided us with excellent team training on business development.”
