What PEOPLE say about us

Tony Portelli and his team at The Consultancy Bureau are a game changing business consultancy agency in West Sussex. They offer practical and innovative solutions to businesses wishing to grow. Their purpose driven approach augmented with professional business strategy and market insight data has been invaluable in helping my business develop a clear integrated marketing plan. Working with Tony and his team was a delight and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Gino Amasanti, Business Owner at Sterling Grove Accountants

TCB worked with us for two years as our Business Development Team and in that time drove our online retail business forward. Following the initial competitor and market review I immediately secured their services; I was amazed at how quickly they understood our business sector! TCB led the implementation of the agreed strategy which saw the introduction of new service providers, new products, revamped websites, higher average basket size and reduced customer acquisition costs. I would highly recommend the TCB team.

James Manning, Owner, The Diverse Investment Group

I have worked with Tony on various projects including The Richmond Business Awards. I have always been impressed by his positive energy, professionalism and innovation which led to new ways of working together achieving outstanding results. If you are looking for the best solutions for your business; I would have no hesitation in highly recommending any company to work with Tony!

Anne Newton, CEO of Richmond Chamber of Commerce

TCB worked with us for 12 months and guided the business to achieve double digit revenue growth whilst achieving significant cost savings. They also recruited new staff members on our behalf. Their extensive knowledge and enthusiasm led to new ways of working that enabled the team to develop and take ownership of the key drivers of the business. Highly recommended!

His leadership was instrumental in amongst other things, driving the audience and digital revenue success of the Brighton Argus, which won our Excellence award for Best News Brand and Digital Centre of the Year which now generates almost 50% of its ad revenue from digital. He also led the strategic transformation of our South London portfolio. He brings teams with him and is a strong commercial and entrepreneurial business leader.
