QC People Management

We faced a particularly aggressive and we believe unwarranted Tribunal with many irrelevant strands being woven into it. Quentin helped us to find our way through and to dismiss the irrelevant issues so that we could contest the real core. It was not only about winning this case but it was important for the business going forward to establish the principles. Quentin guided us through and worked with us explaining each step and taking the majority of the personal pressure off us.

Being in the right and getting the right judgement is not always the same thing and we greatly appreciated his professional and analytical way of working which saw Judge find in our favour and dismiss the cas

Sarah Conway, Interim HR Manager

I engaged Quentin in a high level, complex employee relations case as we needed an independent expert. I can’t recommend Quentin highly enough: it was a tricky case and I never once regretted entrusting it to him. Highly knowledgeable, he is also reliable and a perfect balance of professional and friendly. If you are thinking of using Quentin’s service my advice is please don’t hesitate!

David de Mello, European HR Business Partner, Accord Healthcare

Quentin helped the business by investigating an extremely complex and sensitive grievance that involved cultural issues and allegations of different types of discrimination. Quentin conducted the investigation in a sensitive manner while at the same time ensured that he followed our internal procedures and kept the Company informed of important developments in the investigation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Quentin for similar projects elsewhere.

Quentin was recommended to me as I needed an experienced and independent HR professional to jointly lead a complex collective grievance investigation. Quentin quickly picked up the brief and worked diligently to a very tight timescale, ensuring that I was fully briefed on progress at regular intervals. The end result was a clear and concise report with practical recommendations that led to the collective grievance being resolved.

He has completed many complex investigations on our behalf to a high standard and his professionalism and credibility are second to none.

I have no hesitation in recommending and encouraging my clients to engage Quentin at the earliest opportunity."
