One of Ian’s clients, the Advertising Principles Group, said “There’s something uncanny in what Ian is able to achieve for people and their organisations. Using a kind of sixth, one might say ‘uncommon’ sense he cuts straight to the very essence of its problems and establishes some real heart and soul, before unleashing a positive energy throughout the company. This can achieve truly remarkable results.”
