    "Blandy & Blandy did an excellent job on delivering a training session to our line managers, the training was enjoyable and informative. They understood our requirements and we felt that the objectives of this training were definitely met. The training had a positive impact on our line managers as it made them think about how they manage their staff." Harmeet K Bumrah, Unatrac Ltd

    “The excellent CPD presentation by Blandy & Blandy’s Karen Jones and Debbie Brett on the Freedom of Information Act (FOI) and Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) was an extremely informative event for us at Pegasus Planning Group in view of the emerging changes to the planning system. Karen and Debbie used their extensive planning and commercial experience (respectively) to provide a focused discussion interspersed with specific cases which illustrated the key messages admirably. The CPD session was structured to allow for interaction throughout with our staff which provided valuable opportunity for us to drill down into areas specific to planning.” Martyn Smith, Director, Pegasus Planning Group Ltd

    "Debbie is a quite frankly excellent and a trusted advisor."

    “Many thanks for all your professional and helpful support and advice on this matter over the last couple of years.”
