Here are a few of the things people have said:

Chris Pomfret, former Chairman, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP)

‘Mel was a founder member of the new LEP team for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. The role of the LEP was defined but not much more.  Mel was a key member of the team that got this project up and running. Given the nature of the LEP, a private sector run body needing to follow public sector rules, it was essential that we ensured we had the right processes and procedures and a robust governance model. Mel led all of this work impeccably.’

Gavin Poole, Partner, Stephens Scown Solicitors

‘Mel was a great help in supporting the setting up and putting in place of protocols and good practices for the LEP.  Her approach was efficient, collaborative, determined and friendly; I am sure she will add value to the projects she works with.’

Ian Smith, CEO of Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum

‘Mel project managed a joint event on behalf of Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum and Cornwall Chamber of Commerce, with funding from Big Lottery.  The event was meticulously planned and was a great success. Mel understands the world of the private sector, the public sector and the  voluntary sector, and moves between all three with ease.  Her contacts in the world of business were a great asset to us, and we will definitely be using her services again.’

Simon Tregoning, Chairman and Owner of Classic Cottages

‘I was fortunate enough to work with Mel when I was a board member of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership. I particularly valued Mel’s proactive and practical approach to the tasks we had to tackle. These skills really came to the fore in setting up the Better Business for All partnership to tackle business regulation. Mel is able to engage with a wide range of different people which was a real asset when talking to members of the business community. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mel as a project manager she is diligent, committed, enthusiastic and not afraid to tell it as it is.’

Nigel Carpenter, Proprietor, St Michaels Hotel, Falmouth

‘I worked with Mel Richardson on the formation of the Falmouth BID in 2009, when I was the Falmouth BID Chairman. Mel is a great project manager and organiser. She made a real difference in helping us achieve a strong “Yes” vote’

Andy Cole, Proprietor, Andy’s Café, Newquay

‘As Vice Chairman of Newquay BID during the initial set up and once the vote was successful, working with Mel always gave me confidence she had everything under control and knew all the answers to any of the BID related questions posed to her. Her knowledge of the BID process and the way she reacted with Newquay business’s gave total confidence to all concerned.’

Andrew Ferrie FCA Director Atkins Ferrie, Chartered Accountants, Helston

‘I have had the pleasure of working with Mel over the last few months in my capacity as director of The Helston Business Improvement Partnership (HBIP). Mel acted as a consultant looking at the feasibility of a BID for the town – she undertook this work in a timely and professional manner. Her working knowledge of this difficult subject made the process a lot easier for the board. Her reports were always well-presented and her communication skills in presenting her reports to the Town Team were excellent answering difficult questions in a clear and precise manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mel for similar work or any other Project Management tasks.’

Shirley Moralee, Helston Business Improvement Partnership (HBIP) Development Officer.

‘Mel worked with myself and the Helston Business Improvement Partnership, as a consultant to explore the feasibility of a Business Improvement District for Helston. Mel works with the highest degree of professionalism and integrity and provided a wealth of knowledge and advice. It was a pleasure to work with her and I would highly recommend her services.’
