What Our Clients Say About Us

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

Last year I asked Mike to audit the management structure for our company which was undergoing a period of growth.

Mike looked at the present management structure, interviewed the current managers and also some of the reporting staff, and came up with some very practical suggestions for an improved structure. We have implemented his recommendations and find our management much improved.

We find his depth of practical experience in managing and advising a variety of companies very valuable in arriving at workable solutions to any problems we encounter.

Bio Marine Limited

Gas and Tyre engaged Mike Kelly as a consultant for both HR and Lean initiatives.

He provided us with the methodology and systems to further develop and engage our team. Mike has also assisted us in employment matters and his knowledge and approach has resulted in positive outcomes for the business.

He has a helpful and supportive approach and communicates well across all levels in the business.
