“We couldn’t be happier with the support and commitment from the Max team, all technically and professionally excellent, this was crucial in our long-term project with difficult challenges. Just so nice and such a good and enjoyable team to work with. They really do capture and embrace the client’s key issues and concerns and are exceptional, in the quality of support, their knowledge and expertise and the respect and high regard they are held in across the wider leisure industry.”

Sue Drummond
Buckinghamshire Council

“Max Associates was appointed to deliver a Leisure and Wellbeing Strategy for the District, throughout the project they offered extensive experience and insight to the process of developing this strategy resulting in a clear and effective path forward for the Council to improve its services and deliver upon wider outcomes. Their flexible approach allowed for the development of a strategy which was in line with the Council’s ethos and aspirations. The management options appraisal provided an evidenced analysis from which the Council can now make informed decisions about the future delivery of the services.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Max Associates to carry out similar projects”

Angela Gillingham
Stroud District Council

“The level of detail in the financial analysis was impressive. The report has been taken forward to decision-makers and is regarded as a solid piece of work upon which implementation of leisure developments may be based. Lisa and her colleagues remained flexible, approachable and highly committed to the project throughout. I would recommend Max’s services to any other council looking for delivery of similar projects.”

Michael Walker
Trafford Council

“I would highly recommend Max Associates for their technical knowledge, structured approach and more importantly, their ability to successfully engage with a wide range of stakeholders. Lisa demonstrated an excellent understanding of the political context and was able to provide a flexible approach to inspire confidence and deliver results.”

Middlesbrough Council

“Following the successful completion of Southampton City Councils’ Sport and Recreation Partnerships Project, I would like to formally offer my sincere thanks to Mark and Lisa. Their support (and at times patience) was excellent and I really have enjoyed working with such a professional organisation. On behalf of Southampton City Council, thank you for al your hard work, expertise and experience you brought to the project.”

Jayne Ludden
Sport and Recreation Manager
Southampton City Council

“The quality and level of project management provided by Lisa was first class in every aspect. Lisa ensured the project progressed efficiently whilst at the same time covered all issues. Her management and organisational skills resulted in a very successful project excercise and her excellent communication skills coupled with her knowledge provided great comfort to my members when making the final decision on this major project. To summarise I have no hesitation on recommending Lisa (Max Associates) for any related project management/consultancy that she may consider.”

Melton Borough Council

With the support, help and advice of Mark Steward, the outcome of the procurement process not only met the objectives but far exceeded them. I cannot over emphasise the difference Mark made to the eventual outcome. Having project managed a number of leisure management projects I have to say this one has been the pinnacle in my 35 year local government career and that is firmly due to Max Associates involvement. Described as a “game changer” for the council by the Financial Director in cabinet, the contract also exceeds the qualitative requirements set out in the specification.”
