"CNR have worked with us on numerous projects over the last decade in a range of Government programmes including Ukonline for business, Achieving Best Practice in Your Business plus projects with the Small Business Service and Business Link. They have delivered direct management in publications production, website build and management, plus a range of technical advice and specification, case study collation, image libraries, and sponsorship and review projects.

CNR have frequently worked to tight deadlines whilst ensuring that are met within our budgets and always with a successful outcome.

The team at CNR are always friendly, efficient and a pleasure to work with. They involve themselves thoroughly in the project work, acquiring a depth of knowledge of objectives, resources and customer requirements which enables them to present constructive ideas and strategies, input and well judged advice.

We have been particularly grateful for their experienced advice and suggestions facilitating the transition work between programmes. We would always be very happy to work with them again."
The Business Link Team

"CNR were contracted by SBS to facilitate and organise regional workshops talking about the Business Link brand. The workshops covered national branding news/issues, and informed the regions of any new support materials available. It was also an opportunity for the Business Link and RDA representatives to discuss any suggestions/issues that they had around marketing collateral, campaigns, co-branding. CNR and Dick Willis facilitated these discussions effectively, and because of their extensive experience of the network and DTI were able to raise other important issues around the theme which complemented the discussions and produced positive results for SBS."
Michael David, Business Link Brand Manager, SBS

BLU Logo
"I have been impressed by the professionalism, commitment and energy that CNR bring when we have worked with them to develop and deliver the BLU programme of learning, knowledge-sharing and networking. I think the highest compliment we can pay is that we have come to regard Dick Willis and Chris Garcia more as valued colleagues than contractors."

"...the need to deliver against tight timescales was a constant feature of the work but CNR at every stage sought to understand what was needed by when and then ensured delivery of what had been agreed. At the outset, though, none of us knew quite how the project might develop and CNR demonstrated considerable flexibility, keeping a good sense of how our overall success would be judged and making adaptations as needed. I would be happy to work with CNR again should the need arise."

"As we draw your contract to a close for the Operational Management of ICT Business Support for SBS, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you. Anything I say seems to understate the level of support you have given our Business Links, the ICT Advisors, Business Advisors and myself in the role of managing ICT nationally for SBS.

Could you please pass on my sincere thanks to your staff and in particular, Dick Willis.

Finally, I must congratulate you on having such a customer focused team. Both you and your team who have been a great joy to work with."

UK online for business
"CNR, in developing the E-SME website for the second round of this scheme, has really streamlined the administration process for us. Based on average phone calls being 4 - 6 minutes long, the number of visits to the E-SME website to date illustrates the site must have saved us days of time in answering individual's queries about their application. The site has paid for itself over and over again."
