“Andrew’s initial email response to my email requesting advice was a pleasant surprise. It was considered, well thought through, well written and positive, already offering some possible ways forward.
Having had numerous consultancy meetings in my life, most of them have not been very productive, Andrew’s process was the opposite.
Andrew listened very carefully, asked good questions and slowly created a way forward some ideas were immediate and others to think about and recontact when the first stage of thinking had had time to develop. I felt in safe and experienced hands.
He was creative and flexible, not just someone from a digital or marketing background but someone who really cared about the arts and had experience of working with people in this field as well as having a personal interest.
The follow up was quick and accurate and I felt very clear what it is I have to do next and then to go back and look at the next stage of advice and support.”

“Wow! What an eye-opener! I don’t know what silly game I’ve been playing up until now. It seems I’ve been missing trick after trick. Andrew Knutt is a brilliant motivator and there wasn’t a dull moment in his delivery. He drew ideas out of me that I didn’t know I had.”
