What Ian Richardson, MD of RLM Packaging has to say about the service:

“We found Brian’s combined experience in business development and manufacturing improvements perfect for us. As a hands-on management team we cover many disciplines and were aware that a new structure was needed to achieve the defined growth aims. Brian introduced us to a structured way of identifying the various growth and business development opportunities. The programme also made us understand the importance and benefit of stepping away from the day-to-day business issues and look at the ‘bigger picture’. We continue to use the help from Brian on a regular basis as the RLM Packaging business expands and improves”.
