“Robert of Red Ochre was recommended to the Foundation in 2011 to advise on income diversification strategies. Over a series of meetings, Robert and I worked together to develop a business model and approach for a new consultancy offer. I found Robert thought provoking, insightful and fun to work with. As a result of his input, I was able to raise investment to build the business development capacity within the Foundation team. Two years on, the Foundation has just completed its first full year of consultancy work – in which we have earned over 20% of our income from consultancy.” Jo Taylor, Chief Executive, The Ethical Property Foundation
“Red Ochre are a fantastic organisation to work with, not only do they lead in supporting Social Entrepreneurs and on Social Enterprise, but they are professional, competent and experts in their field. Uday and his team are passionate about the work they carry out and deliver exceptionally high quality support and advice” G. Rose, Business Engagement Manager, the British Library Business & IP Centre
“Thank you for so ably navigating us through what could have been a difficult day with all the undercurrents. I felt it really brought the team together and gave us positivity at a difficult time.” CEO, Rights of Women
“I feel that Red Ochre have offered us something special and unique, which has resulted in a truly rewarding publication for VCW (and particularly for my project team.)” Naama Wartenburg, Head of Youth Volunteering, Vinvolved Central London
“The staff at Red Ochre has been fantastically helpful, and has consistently gone over and above the contracted minimum requirements to help us with the business, in terms of extra days, pulling in personal favours and contacts and generally including us in the social enterprise community where ever possible. These are exactly the types of people and organisations who the government must give support if they are to take the Big Society seriously” Jake Lawy, CEO The Chocolution
“I probably would not have had the confidence to take Little Bee to where it’s at right now without the programme. The 1-2-1 business support as the model used allows you to deepen/gain knowledge of all facets of business development i.e. Red Ochre’s team have a wealth of experience between them. Tapping into this has been invaluable. I think it’s an excellent service and personally I’ve been recommending it to high heaven! Great model, excellent mix, expertly delivered.” Abigail Bulley, CEO Little Bee Community (beneficiary of the Ready to Grow programme)
