“David supported OSARCC’s Board of Trustees with training in financial process and procedures to ensure our organisation was managing our finances in a robust way, after I had attended a training course with him.

His ability to turn complex information and spreadsheets into something which can be understood without any financial background, and his ability to train in a clear, supportive, and helpful way has had a massive benefit both on my own ability to create and convey information about OSARCC’s financial health to the Trustees, and for them to be able to understand what the information means”

“I have known David Bates for approximately 2 years when he worked with OCVA supporting the European Social Fund contracts. His responsibilities included Project Management – supporting the varied, some small and some challenging organisations with keeping accurate, clear and concise records.

I found David to be supportive, very conscientious and would and if the opportunity arose would be happy to work alongside him again”
