Testimonials

I’ve been fortunate to work with Tom as both a client and a colleague over the last ten years. Throughout that time Tom has stood apart from other costs experts with his commerciality, innovation and original thinking. He is more than competent at the usual costs work, but really comes into his own around retainers and funding.
