My biggest fear before hiring someone was that we did not have the necessary expertise to prevent us falling behind with ever-evolving industry requirements. This fear disappeared upon engaging Barbara as a consultant. The most valuable thing about having her was the peace of mind, knowing that our technical department was being overseen and directed by someone with such a high level of expertise and attention to detail. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Barbara Bray as a technical consultant. The work she has done and continues to do for my company has been invaluable, thorough and of the highest quality.

A rigorous independent review by a professional with high standards was the most valuable thing about having her review our systems against customer and BRC standards, and was what I was looking for to help assist our business progress in its performance. In addition, I enjoy working with Barbara because of her straight talking approach, willingness to work hard with us and her ability to earn trust through maintaining professionalism and integrity at all times. Barbara is in demand because she is easy to work with and always gives 100%. She is friendly, professional, driven and importantly, cares about helping you get the improvements you want.

On 14th of February 2018 Barbara gave a guest lecture to 47 first year Nutritional Sciences students as part of Nutrition in 21st Century Unit. The guest lecture was based on her Nuffield scholarship travelling to 7 countries in 6 weeks looking at sustainability, food chain, agriculture and food production. Feedback from students was extremely positive focusing on how Barbara had transformed a rather complicated concept such as sustainability into simple, clear and human centred logical and entertaining stories. Barbara is an exceptional professional, a very competent and confident presenter who is passionate and knowledgeable. I hope we can continue to work with Barbara in future to inspire and empower our Manchester Metropolitan University Nutritional Sciences students.
