Karen Baker, Parsons Son & Basley
Thank you very much to Jane King who has been on the end of the telephone and e-mail for me whilst I was dealing with a request from an employee for a return from maternity leave.
This included a request for flexible hours, Jane knew the answers to my queries immediately and has guided me through the process to ensure that we are doing the best for both our employee and our business.
A very professional and personal service, thank you.

The Corporate Planning Team have been a great source of strength and support to myself and to my family business, guiding us through the myriad of HR advisory and regulations and setting up the necessary systems for us.
Kirsten Hazell-White, Founder, London Grace, Putney, London SW15
We have worked with the Corporate Planning team for some months and couldn’t recommend their services more highly.
As a new business, they took time to explain in depth everything we needed to know with input on HR, which we were very grateful for.
They are a very knowledgeable team who went above and beyond to help us. Thank you.
Tina Smith, Trustee, Milton Park Pre-School, Portsmouth, Hampshire
We have been using the services of the Corporate Planning team for the last year and from our very first meeting they have always offered us a friendly and personal service.
They support us with our payroll, pensions and HR needs. The professionalism and knowledge of their team and the support we have received has been invaluable.
ECP have been an asset to us.
Ross Gilbert, Managing Director QED Property, Albourne, West Sussex
I am delighted to report that we felt the support and professionalism demonstrated by ECP and their team was second to none. From the very beginning they identified what we needed and found an excellent investor which has proved to be the perfect match. Keep up the excellent work.
Paul Rostand, Director, Great British Biscotti, Christchurch, Dorset
I approached ECP in 2016 as I needed some advice and assistance with raising investment funds. After an initial meeting, ECP were fully supportive of my company and offered a range of options within which I could raise the funding required.
I decided on an EIS fundraise with ECP helping me to successfully raise a full round of funding (£250,000) which gave my business the investment it needed to progress to the next level.
After my positive experience, I will be returning to ECP to raise a further round of funding and would recommend ECP to any company looking for a similar service.
Craig Massey, CEO DanDan Digital, London EC1
I have worked with ECP over the last 3 years and found them to be really excellent. The calibre of potential investors they fielded with direct and relevant experience for our business, was incredibly high.
This route is definitely not for companies wanting a sleeping investor as you will find these investors are totally passionate about your business and are motivated from the inside for it to succeed making it a win-win for both parties. Ben and Vanessa are real professionals and helped nurture us through the various stages including the handling of the sensitive issue of the company valuation and much more.
They are a really nice and fun team to work with and made the whole process an absolute delight. We have found two great investors through this route. I would highly recommend this initiative to any ‘early-stage’ companies. We would do a final investment through this route when we have our new Chinese website/literature completed by next week when it would be good to do a blast out to your database!

We are Find.Exchange, an aggregator, comparison marketplace for currency based in London at Level39.
ECP has been a great help to us, from the start right until the end. Their knowledge, help and involvement has been decisive on the success our both our investors. They tailored the search to fit our needs to not just finding the right investor for us but helping the investor find the company in the industry as well. They are passionate and understand the business. This has helped us enormously with contacts and skills to take our business to the next level within a fast-moving tech market in London.
Lisa Clark, Marketing Manager Material Things, Eastleigh, Hampshire
Our company, Material Things have been working with ECP for the past year. Our first meeting was to discuss workplace pensions, which was a minefield for a small company like ours, but with their knowledge and expertise we managed to get the pensions set up without too much distraction and hard work for us.
As their service was so good we decided that we would invest further in getting all our employment contracts and our company handbook which was over ten years old updated which has also made a big improvement moving forward.
The team are always on hand to help, and will go above and beyond to make sure that we are happy with their service. I would definitely recommend them to any other businesses that need a helping hand along the way.
