What clients say

Kit rapidly built a strong partnership with us and the results (new CEO, Commercial Director, Chairman) are testimony to his success. Looking at the new governance and leadership in British Cycling I am confident we can become the best in class governing body that we intend to be. I am equally confident that Kit has played a huge role in making that happen.
