Mix for Public Sector: Testimonials

Mix Consulting joined our project team at a time when the project was behind schedule in terms of targets. Their hard work, dedication and high calibre input played a significant role in getting the project back on track and to enable it to successfully deliver key targets. I am writing to express my thanks for all the hard work, dedication and expertise you have put into the Higher Apprenticeship in Retail Management project.
As you know, this hasn’t been the easiest of projects in terms of creating employer demand and our timescale was extremely tight.
Your efforts really helped get the project back on track and to help us satisfy the demands of the National Apprenticeship Service.
We now have a strong, viable approved qualification, which will hopefully be successfully utilized by retail employers both large and small. A lot of this is because of the work you two and your team have undertaken.
It has been a pleasure working with both of you on this project and I hope that we will work together again in the future.
