Paula is the Managing Director of Ahead Start Consulting. She invented it back in 2003 when she got frustrated at working with others and has been at the helm ever since.
Paula likes to be across all projects taking place in the company (some may even call her a control freak) but she prefers the term “involved”. This involvement means that whoever in the company undertakes the work for you, you get a same great, consistent service.
Malcolm is the “new boy” fresh from the fire service he has joined us to bolster our fire offering. On the face of it, requirements for both roles appear similar: up for a challenge, flexible, adaptable and creative. Happy to provide assurance that the new role won’t involve actual fire…unless of course he’s doing practical extinguisher training….
Charlotte spends her life being gloomy. Well that’s not quite true – she’s pretty upbeat but she does spend a lot of time doing Business Continuity Planning (BCP) for people (used to be called disaster recovery back in the day) so is the one you need to help you look for things that can go wrong. Happily, she is also the one that will help you organise to ensure that if the worst happens, your organisation is robust enough to ride the storm.
Graeme is our latest addition. Fresh from the food industry (did you see what we did there?) Graeme is on hand to look at any electrical safety and food hygiene issues and also, because of his particular background any COMAH issues. Do ask him about his experience with ammonia in a gas-tight suit….
Jane basically runs the place. She is in charge of the money so everybody is always very nice to her. Enough said!
Alan loves implementing systems – he eats, drinks and sleeps ISO systems. If you are baffled by which one you need (and who isn’t) he will set you straight and experience has shown us he usually saves you money as well.
Ali is the geek. If something needs doing and doing to the nth degree – Alice will be assigned. Alice’s specialisms cover a wide spectrum, from system design to fire door inspections and every detailed inspection in-between.

Office cat – we all basically work for him.
