Commenting on the Awards, Catherine Guy, Managing Partner said, ”We have been working with many organisations and people in the public sector for over 25 years and have developed a strong understanding of the environment in which public sector bodies operate, and the particular challenges with which they deal.

“We also have a strong culture of excellence and accountability which we know resonates with our public sector clients, and we have a good understanding of what is important to our clients and we work hard to maintain that.

“Above all, we make particular efforts to ensure that we deliver actual value and benefit to our clients through the services we provide and how we provide them.”

Catherine Guy added, “Our public sector clients are  extremely important client to us. We are interested in and have enormous respect for the work that public sector organisations do, and are therefore honoured to have been recognised by our clients with these prestigious Awards."
