"It was because Neil already knew Paul and came with his recommendation that I agreed to see him. One-off consultants tend to operate without an ideology and those who work for consultancy firms tend to be soul-less.
tcp has a framework and an ideology - it is based on the need to align people behind a vision or objective.
The brief, given Neil's experience of changing the behaviour of a big agency's management, was to move us faster and to more effect than if we hadn't met him.
He's taken us quite a long way and helped us produce tangible output.
Working with Neil is provocative and intimate.
His style is quiet in manner, non-confrontational, not brash but persistent.

He's good at taking the specific and showing how it's part of the bigger picture.
He also understands our idiosyncrasies."

"tcp have been given the opportunity to show us what we could do and should do and how to get a route map underway. They have raised the game and the level at which the DDBU team believes it can play.
We've been on an exploration - a voyage of discovery.
I've now got the ammunition and the confidence to push a bit harder and to change my mindset as to how things could be.
The value for money has been fine and I would have no problem justifying it, if called upon.
tcp's challenge is to roll out into more areas of the company and I wouldn't have any hesitation in them working in any of our DDB markets or with Neil placing one of his associates in there."
