Consulting in a range of areas affords me the opportunity of meeting many interesting and diverse people, Neil Barnfather.

Neil continues to seek new opportunities to work as either a business consultant or disability advocate, and believes that by combining these two arenas, he can provide a holistic approach to his work. Below, several of the individuals Neil has worked with previously, have provided an endorsement of his services.

If you would like to endorse Neil for work he has carried out with or for you, please do him.

Although I am a new acquaintance of Neil I have been struck by his outstanding business record and his commitment and generosity as a philanthropist.

Neil stands out as an energetic and driven entrepreneur who has so many more years to offer to the country and community, in particular the disabled community, as the UK builds upon the success and legacy of the Olympics and Paralympics. I feel sure that he has the personal qualities, supported by an unusual and interesting background, to be a role model to inspire greater business activity, to imbue the entrepreneurial spirit in the young and to encourage philanthropy.

The service I received from Neil was outstanding. His knowledge of the products, his absolute willingness to do whatever it took to have a satisfied customer at the end of the day, and his friendly attitude made working with him a pleasure.

Having dealt with a number of adaptive technology vendors in the past, I was amazed at Neil’s level of service. Not only did he do his utmost to help me as an individual, he fought quite a few battles to advance the technology, and fair market practice to help all individuals working with this adaptive software. Even at the end-of-life of one of the software lines, Neil went far beyond what was necessary to assist individuals and help them migrate to new platforms, and even more.

I’ve never received such high quality service from any other software or hardware vendor.

It is my pleasure to recommend Neil Barnfather for his achievements as a business entrepreneur.

I have known Neil for over two years in my capacity as CEO of Academy of Vocational and Professional Training. Neil has worked with me on two projects, ACEE, which is dedicated to bringing soft-skill training (via e-learning) to the vulnerable and disadvantaged throughout our communities, and The Scholarship Den, a Scholarship funding for young entrepreneurs who want to excel in their field launched at the first ever Youth Enterprise Live Exhibition at Earls Court (Neil was also one of the judges).

What distinguished Neil is his ability to think outside the box. He is consistent, clear and is intellectually rational, with effective reasoning skills to help get to the heart of the matter.

I have found Neil to be an extremely positive asset to our programs and a true friend.

Neil was an inspiring mentor on our bus at Warwickshire College and at Oxford and Cherwell Valley College where he had the students spellbound by his words of wisdom about how to set up a business. His cheerful character lifted their spirits while delivering real advice that gave them food for thought. His passion and enthusiasm shone through and was infectious. When can you hop onto our bus again soon Neil?
