What it’s like to work with us

what you see is what you get

We were all partners in large consulting firms with a track record of leading assignments for major organisations. With Metafore, what you see is what you get – partners actually doing all the work… not delegating to junior (but expensive) consultants.

As one recent client said, “I wanted to avoid the battalions/cost of McKinsey and the Big 4”.

We believe what is different about MetaforePartners is the combination of:

  • deep expertise on change, developed over 30 years working in this field
  • our commercial background: we are all chartered accountants who have set up and led businesses
  • our ability to be credible and work effectively from the board room to the shop floor.

Daniel Webb (Retail Programme Manager)

The great skill MetaforePartners have is the ability to facilitate a group to an outcome or an output they would never have imagined possible, without even realising how they got there.

Sally Smith (Regional Training Manager)

To say that my development through Metafore has for me been life-changing is an understatement. They have put me through challenging, frustrating, and thoroughly rewarding times within very varied workshops. I only hope that I will be fortunate enough to work with Metafore in the future.

Louise Stewart-Murray (Project Manager)

Instead of talking about what we might do, what might work and what might happen when we returned to the office, we spent the 2 days making the changes we wanted to see, right there in the room. Martin and Matthew supported us in achieving our objective in a safe, engaging and productive environment.

Andrew Thornton (Owner, SME)

In over 25 years, I have never experienced anything like it. It really got to the heart of the matter and as a group we now work together in a totally different way.
