Client Testimonials

Aidan has been an asset in managing some difficulties with our catering contractor. His experience, expertise, friendly but firm manner and proactive approach has helped us to raise the bar in food quality and student engagement. I have greatly valued his honesty and support through difficult times. I was always confident he was 'in my corner' and working with me to get to a successful outcome. I would highly recommend him - and have already to colleagues at the other school in my trust. I would be more than happy to speak to any prospective clients to endorse him in the highest regard.

School Business Manager, The London Screen Academy

I currently have an external catering consultant working in our kitchen, I cannot recommend him highly enough, he has been brilliant. Aidan previously worked in a large catering company but is now working independently providing support, training and advice to a number of schools. I have never seen a transformation of a catering team like this in over 14 years of being a headteacher, it has been amazing! His expertise would be perfect for anyone needing support in the very near future or would just like some advice.

Principal, Primary Academy

The compliance side is looking brilliant, a massive step forwards, so a huge thank you! We now have an action plan and road map to take us in the right direction so I personally really appreciate the support given. I know our chef does too, he is as I said, a proud man so cracking the exterior of him was key which you clearly have achieved. He is positive and upbeat about things moving forward. Thank you and no doubt we will be leaning on you again at some point.

Facilities Manager, Secondary Academy

Aidan is a positive and solution-oriented individual and he leads from the front in setting an excellent example. He showed himself to be extremely reliable in all his dealings, and he was able to get the best out of the team. Aidan also showed commendable resilience and resourcefulness in responding to the challenges which the pandemic presented; working over weekends and holidays was never a problem and he was prepared to go the extra mile to support the wellbeing of our pupils. Aidan has demonstrated an excellent work ethic, and his expertise and experience served the school community very well.

Headmaster, Independent Boarding School

We have had an inhouse catering operation for decades with a bar and restaurant serving our staff, students and visitors. Over a period of years those facilities become out of date, the interior was extremely tired, the staff uninspired and the food options poor. We decided to reinvent the whole operation, tendering out to a number of prospective caterers. After the tender process we appointed a caterer and Aidan led the team for the whole mobilisation with excellent vision, attention to detail and creativity. He managed the whole process, dealing with contract issues, managing the refurbishment of our kitchen, restaurant and coffee bar, overseeing both TUPE transfers and appointing and selecting new staff. He arranged marketing materials and took care of every detail adding creativity to the whole process – everything from ideas for catering staff uniforms to working alongside his team handing out promotional food and literature in our launch week.

Aidan was personable, dedicated and impressive throughout. Always going the extra mile. He can switch between the big picture strategy piece and ensuring every detail is on point and everything in between. I was also hugely impressed with his people management skills. We had a couple of tough decisions on the way, and I witnessed Aidan guide, support and steer his staff admirably. He’s calm, considerate, but can make tough decisions when needed too. It was a real pleasure working alongside Aidan.
