What our clients say

Joyce Tombs

Managing Director

Lonsdale & Partners


"I have known Steve Ripley for over 15 years and have been providing accountancy and taxation advice to his company, Leading Edge, since it was formed.

So when my firm needed help to take our business further forward it seemed the natural choice to work with someone we knew and trusted.

Steve's personality, skills and style of working mean he is equally effective whether working one to one or leading small or larger groups. After working with me acting as a sounding board to identify key organisational development issues he went on, over a two year period, to provide a number of one day management and leadership workshops for our senior and middle managers. He introduced and brought meaning to concepts previously missing from our business including values, vision, mission and purpose.

One of Steve's many strengths is his almost uncanny ability to understand and interpret the behaviour of individuals and to make constructive recommendations to improve their individual performance and their interaction with other team members.

In facilitating our annual directors' conference he enabled us to focus on and address the strategic and management issues essential for a successful business. We continue to build on the solid foundations he has helped us put in place. "
