James Collins, Head of Technology and Innovation, PTC Industries Ltd

“We hired Tunley to help debug our engineering processes and to improve delivery time for our custom engineered systems. William Beer took the time to do a thorough survey of our existing engineering activities and was able to quickly understand the nature of our processes. He recommended changes that were easy to implement and which gave us immediate positive results. Implementing his recommendations not only improved our engineering processes, they also improved the overall moral of the entire company. People feel like they know what is expected of them, individually and as a team, and they are eager to get it done. William is intelligent, personable, has a deep understanding of engineering processes, and a no-nonsense approach to getting things done. It was a pleasure working with him.”

“Will, came to our office to undertake a preconstruction work flow assessment. He very quickly understood what the brief was and the challenges we wanted to review. His approach was professional and effective. The data that has been produced was clear concise.”

 

David Harvey, Pre-Contracts Director, Optima Systems

“Tunley Engineering provided structure to our discussions and really useful personal insights that can save us from trying things that are not likely to work. Where they did recommend action it was considered and manageable for our scale of company.”

 

Jon Hilton, Managing Director, Lunaz Design

“William Beer with Tunley Engineering was diligent in meeting with my Engineering staff and their process partners to understand our Engineering processes including Product development. Within a week, he was able to unearth several areas of opportunities for us to improve. While not all the improvements are applicable, several of them when applied can and will yield the returns in speed, quality and cost that we look for in an Engineering department.”

 

Chinmoy Banerjee, VP Engineering & Technical Service, Follett Ice Corporation

“Will has an infectious enthusiasm and drive with a strong determination to find issues and look for alternatives or solutions.  The very direct nature of all interactions was welcome and allowed maximum time spent on analysis and discussion for ways forward.  Despite the direct approach there was no real consternation as findings and thoughts were always presented based upon detailed analysis and with supporting examples.

We found that an external perspective was very useful and will certainly help us with our forward planning and growth.”

 

Emerson and Renwick, Ben Clements, Managing Director

“The work Will / Tunley Engineering have done for us over the last 3-4 months is excellent. Without their help we would still be floundering around with our old undeveloped systems. They have opened our eyes to some of the pitfalls we have previously ignored at the planning stage to our significant detriment. We now have a much better knowledge and systems to really drive our NPI process. On a more personal note Will’s enthusiasm for simplicity in what is generally a complex area is excellent.”

 

John Dobson, Managing Director, TEV Ltd.

“Tunley were able to provide the focused targets required to complete our goals in the most time efficient manner. With limited time and resource, real output was achieved on schedule. The format of the process used has provided a framework ready for when the task needs to be repeated for other portions of our product line. Ultimately this has given confidence to the in-house engineers and freed them of the doubts that so often grind many projects to a halt.”

 

Robertson Geologging, Paul Worthington, Engineering & Development Manager

“I would not hesitate to endorse Tunley Engineering. The ability to immediately engage my team and to generate a different, more purposeful attitude within the Engineering Department, almost overnight, was quite remarkable. We are already beginning to see benefits and I am confident that step changes to Engineering delivery performance will result from this project with Tunley Engineering. This has most definitely been money very well spent.”

 

UBH International, Managing Director, Stewart Wiltshire

“Professional and efficient approach to reach targets.”

 

Berengere Huberlant, Global Engineering Services Manager, Desmet Ballestra

William has a no-nonsense, direct approach, with a knack of getting to the root of the issues.”

 

Mark Crocker, Managing Director, PB Design

Eduard Olaru, Design Engineer, Securon LTD

“I am currently on my first run of ladder in management in the manufacturing industry, I found the root cause analysis session a great tool to have learnt, the learning was delivered in a confident approach, and the content was well thought out and structured and no question was overlooked, not only did I get an insight into problem solving, but a lesson in how to deliver in a confident and professional approach without being too ambiguous. Excellent …will be enquiring for some more sessions to help me develop in my career.”

 

Richard Corp, Manufacturing Team Leader, Optima Systems

“William was able to explain the concept behind RCA and the reasons why using just one method doesn’t always work, with some great examples. He kept us engaged and it was not just him talking at us, but allowing us to think for ourselves. As you know, if you are involved you learn more, than just being talked at. I can see why companies use your services, you are direct and straight to the point, helping solve problems the right way.”

 

Sharn Lalkiya, Founder/MD, TechWaves Recruitment

“The presentation was very well structured, with both theoretical and practical sections, which I really enjoyed. The information provided was valuable and could be used as a good base for creating a Technical Conformance File and a Declaration of Conformity.”

 


Georgiana Poincescu, Document Controller, IPU Group

“Tunley Engineering is a great way to sharpen any engineering team, whether they are part of a massive corporate structure or a smaller team. Their method of instruction strays far from the dry methods of old, in which you are simply spoken to and not engaged. With Tunley Engineering, the teaching process is much more interactive with lessons being structured more like workshops than university-style classrooms. I believe this to be the ideal way of instructions, as it allows both the student and teacher to be engaged with one another, adding to the scholastic synergy. I would recommend Tunley Engineering to teams of all experience levels, as it can add world-class concepts to any engineer’s toolbox.”
