About Us

Our team work with SME’s and large organisations as well as speak at keynotes and events.

SME'S

Most of our SME clients want the same thing; to be able to grow and scale. The issue that often holds them back is a lack of depth in management skills among their team.  We run workshops to help improve decision making, leadership, teamwork and communication throughout all levels of the client’s team – improving their ability to take a step up, drawing in fresh talent behind them.  

LARGE ORGANISATIONS

Our corporate clients usually want programmes incorporating change management or buttressing various departments when they work together, instead of in silos, to improve performance and make better decisions.  We train their teams how to collaborate effectively, communicate and share thinking seamlessly. We run a range of interactive and engaging workshops to do this, including our specialised ‘decision games’.

CONFERENCES AND SPEAKING

Quirk Solutions have spoken on strategy and successful outcomes at events all over the world, focusing on the relationship between managing stress, decision-making, leadership, teamwork and communication.  We frequently accompany our talks with highly interactive breakout sessions, in which delegates take part in an immersive experience debating and questioning a case study.

Our Approach

Bespoke

There are no templates to what we do. We listen to your needs, explain how we can help, then collaboratively work with you to design the package you need. This means you get exactly what you want, delivering the outcomes you need, efficiently and effectively. Our unique approach uses your team as the subject matter experts, in tandem with our experience at analysing, writing, testing and implementing strategy/plans. This approach reduces the amount of time your team spends off-line, it is more cost-effective and it delivers better results.

Flexible

We deliver support in a range of ways. Some of our clients use us to help them in a precise and highly focused manner, such as stress testing a specific business plan, or facilitating a strategy discussion. This ‘in and out’ method keeps distractions to a minimum and delivers high-quality output in a short time frame. Other clients want to improve leadership, communication and planning capability among their team. In this instance, we provide the education to help them develop the required skills and support them over time, to ensure consistent quality of delivery, ultimately leaving them independent of us.

Agile

We have used decision games to improve change and transformation programmes, to analyse the strengths of nascent strategy ideas, as well as to ‘reality check’ potentially high-risk initiatives and reassure investors. We have provided planning seminars to bring dysfunctional teams into a coherent whole and, in the case of one client, helped to reduce ineffective activity by 40%. Proving that our services add exceptional value to the bottom line. We have used our speakers to stimulate, inspire and motivate appetite for change. We will adapt to what you need and deliver you the results you want. Each member of our team is highly experienced at working in international locations and with multi-national organisations.

Corporate Social Responsibility

At Quirk Solutions, we are big believers in the balance of work and giving something back. Over the past couple of years we have focused all our social giving efforts on the Royal Marines Charity, however, in recent months we have decided to widen the scope. We now support 3 organisations that deliver a wide range of services to members of multiple communities and we are very proud to do so.

 

They include the SSAFA, the Aberdeen Foyer and The C100 Club in Cornwall – more details below on how we support each of these organisations and why.

The SSAFA is a hugely important charity, as it supports members of the Armed Forces, Veterans and all their families, including bereaved families, from all three services. As the UK’s oldest national tri-service military charity, all monies raised go to providing practical, emotional and financial support to anyone who is serving or has ever served, and their families.

To mark the 100th anniversary of the battle of Passchendaele in August 2017, our Managing Director Chris Paton cycled 250 miles in 3 days, from Le Havre through France to the battlefield in Ypres & Passchendaele. Chris has experienced first hand the good the SSAFA does for friends of Quirk Solutions and their families.

Aberdeen Foyer is a successful social enterprise working to support individuals in communities in the North East of Scotland. Established in Aberdeen in 1995 in response to concerns about youth homelessness and unemployment, the Foyer has reached beyond its early focus and provides various services across the region.

The Foyer helps people build confidence and develop their skills and talents to make major changes in their lives. They provide accommodation with support to formerly homeless and at-risk young people and they deliver linked up services – education, training, mentoring, counselling, employment support and health improvement initiatives to people of all ages.

As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, Quirk Solutions are delighted to be supporting the work of Aberdeen Foyer and are delighted to be working with Leona McDermid, Executive Director on a number of projects.

The Cornwall 100 Club is a group of like-minded businesses believing in social responsibility at a grassroots level. By being a member of this Club, all members offer financial support to Cornish communities, making a real, positive and measurable difference to life in Cornwall. The CCF launched the Cornwall 100 Club in early 2008. Since then the corporate philanthropy fund has grown from strength to strength and at Quirk Solutions we are proud to be members of this unique group.
