“I don’t use consultants, I use S A Partners. In my first contacts with Prof. Peter Hines and Chris Butterworth at S A Partners, I became convinced that the holistic approach they had developed was the concept I had sought.

After having worked with them for many years now, and seen the great successes we have achieved at Cogent Power, I am even more convinced that this is the waya business (any business – and not just automotive) should be run.”

Marcel Schabos, Former Cogent Power MD

“As a single comment I would buy this again for any organization embarking upon a strategic change direction. This is the first program I have been in 18 years that actually adds real value. A real delight to meet people of a like mind and not peddling quick shallow solutions that are doomed to fail in the medium term”
