Darren Cooper - Commercial Director, PRD Fasteners Ltd

Wayne spent a number of months at PRD, during which time his influence, engaging coaching techniques and in-depth knowledge & experience of transforming inefficient business programmes has measurably taken the company forward.

The remit was to identify & eradicate waste within the key commercial areas (Engineering Planning, Commercial & Technical Sales, Certification and Purchasing) and by implementing several lean process systems, KPI measurement methods and management tools, Wayne has helped the business to achieve tangible improvements.

The systems implementation has provided a sound foundation within the aforementioned key areas which, in my opinion, will accommodate the organic growth plans we have for the business over the next 1-3 years, and the measurement mechanisms will ensure we support the present workforce with additional resource at the right times.

I have seen firsthand not only the benefits Wayne provided to the business, but also the ability to relate to, and get the best out of, individuals at various stages of career progression, from administrator to board level and I would encourage any business, large or small, who may be considering external business improvement consultancy to utilise Wayne’s services.
