Case Studies & Testimonials

Watts Associates has worked with a wide range of organisations, of varying sizes in different industries across the private, public and third sectors.  We bring this broad practical experience to all our clients, and so set out below some case studies and testimonials from several clients with whom we have worked.

Patient Opinion Ltd
George has been incredibly helpful in helping us get our financial management and reporting systems up to scratch.  He has a detailed and methodical approach and has been responsive and flexible in his work with us.  Highly recommended.
James Munro – Director

George is extremely capable, efficient, responsive and a lateral thinker.  He is personable and offers sound guidance at competitive costs.  He has had a broad commercial background which gives him a sound platform.

The Key Fund
The support provided by Watts Associates to both Key Fund directly and to our clients has been invaluable.  The interventions have always been of the highest quality in terms of output and professionalism and have directly led to increased success in terms of more robust investment opportunities, reduced risks and the financial recovery of several organisations in financial difficulty.  All of which have untimately reduced risks to the fund, impacting upon default and increasing the sustainability of a number of enterprises

Humberside Training & Enterprise Council Ltd
Humberside Training and Enterprise Council (TEC) during its 10 year life was one of the most successful TEC’s in terms of:

  • delivering the core business
  • responding to emerging needs and developing innovative programmes to meet those needs
  • cost effectiveness and efficient working

Further we became highly respected nationally in operating in a flexible and customer focused way through empowering our staff to take quick decisions to respond to the issues they faced as they arose.

None of this would have been possible with the Dynamic Budgetary Control as described, and indeed practiced, by George.  In many organisations budgetary control acts as a brake on the organisation, but in our case Dynamic Budgetary Control helped drive the organisation forward
Peter Fryer, Chief Executive, Humberside TEC, 1991 – 2001

Econoplas Ltd

George is very thorough and thinks about the wider implications of the accounting function particularly in relation to investment.  The task George undertook exceeded expectation.

CH – Director

I was particularly impressed by the quality and depth of the work undertaken by George and his team in delivering this project.  George developed a thorough understanding of the business, process and product to help us understand the assumptions and risks behind the financials.  George went beyond the project brief to ensure high-quality delivery at excellent value.

Varyflush Ltd

George delivered a high quality business plan that gave CO2Sense the necessary information to invest in Varyflush’s new business venture.  The business plan has proven invaluable to Varyflush in obtaining further investment from the private sector. George not only delivered the business plan, but helped to up-skill the sole proprietor
of Varyflush on getting investment ready.  The support proved excellent value for money.

European Funding Project

I have no doubt that without your assistance we wouldn’t have been able to bring this to the satisfactory end that we have achieved.

I have kept the Board informed of the progress of the work undertaken for Objective 1 and the deadlines and problems we have dealt with largely due to your expertise and patience, they have asked me to pass their thanks and appreciation on to you.

Turnaround & Organisational Restructure
(Name of organisation not disclosed for confidential reasons)
It is my opinion that George Watts provided an excellent level of advice, encouragement and support through the assessment, restructure and eventual recovery of the organisation.  His initial analysis of the organisation was invaluable, allowing the review team to very quickly begin focussing on and then tackling key areas of weakness.  I have high regard for the professional expertise, breadth of  knowledge and problem solving skills George showed during the entire recovery process and believe that he made a highly significant contribution to the organisations eventual recovery

Business Support
I have had the pleasure of knowing George for a number of years. He is a first rate accountant at every level from supporting the man in the street wishing to know good practice to achieve the best results to the challenges faced at board level when dealing with intricate financial management issues. George’s approach is one of quiet determination to find a successful outcome in a very no nonsense hands on way, always putting the customer first.  The current financial pressures facing the business community highlight an even greater need for the services of Watts Associates and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending George.
Julie Wilson – Head of Service for Business and Commerce at Doncaster MBC
