What Sets You Apart?

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

“What sets you apart?”  said the Director of a national charity – to me – as we talked about a potential project.

Wow, I thought, why is Brian Farrington Ltd a compelling choice to provide procurement advice?

Here’s (pretty much) what I said:

  1. Procurement Expertise, Business Acumen
    • Our procurement consultants have decades of experience in a variety of procurement solutions. We also have access to all of Brian Farrington’s broad knowledge database of over 30 years of assignments.
  2. International Experience
    • We’ve worked in hundreds of organisations in the UK and internationally and have extensive knowledge in procurement consulting
  3. Independent, Unbiased Advice
  4. Realistic Goals
    • We use our procurement consulting knowledge as a backdrop to identify actionable opportunities to meet both short- and long-term goals, while keeping in mind the unique aspects of your organisation.
  5. Long-term viability
    • After completion of an assignments, our procurement consultants are available to assist with implementation of recommendations and solutions for continued success

Sounds compelling? :)

If you’ve found my five points compelling(!)  and the resources on our site useful and would like to learn more about how we might be able to help you achieve your procurement, risk and tendering goals, please contact me on 01744 20698 and we can have an informal chat to discuss your areas of interest.

When you call, we’ll have a conversation to learn more about your needs and challenges, your objectives and priorities – and to see whether what we do seems to be enough of a fit to move forward.

If there’s a fit, we’ll set up a meeting, either by telephone or in person to do a more in-depth “discovery session” to really understand what you need and whether we can help.

Drop me a note to set up an initial phone discussion. I fully recognise that contacting consultants can sometimes seem like a daunting prospect – but try us, we don’t bite!

Alternatively you can call me on 01744 20698.




Why people with procurement, risk and tendering issues want to work with the people at Brian Farrington.

There are three themes that clients tell us over and over again.

Firstly, they tell us they believe they are making a smarter investment working with Brian Farrington — bringing a thorough understanding of their procurement, risk and tendering issues and a proven track record of enabling excellent returns on their investment.

Secondly, our clients are confident that they are working with ‘straight-talkers’ that bring experience, expertise and stay focused on client success; not on our next income target (no army of junior consultants that we need to ‘utilise’).

Finally, people, just like you, tell us they actually like working with us. They find us easy to work with and collaborative in solving issues that inevitably arise in procurement, risk and tendering.
