About Stuart Astill and strategy and evidence…
How do I work?
I am passionate about working with people who have a strong desire to look honestly at what they do and how they can improve. I create close relationships with clients, I act with integrity and authenticity. I will never shy away from challenging people to reach for the best – whilst always warning clearly and strongly to adequately manage risk.
