I am writing to sincere gratitude my thanks for your support during the conference last week. Your extremely comprehensive and professional presentation gave valid input to the event, and delegates were able to hear from people who have overcome obstacles to achieve a Mini Bike/Off Road provision.
Initial feedback is showing that of delegates enjoyed the conference and found the content very interesting. I truly believe that the potential for more off road motorcycle provision across the UK has increased significantly as a result of the conference and your valued contribution.
Many thanks once again.

The Science of Noise Course for Gifted and Talented Children
The day was extremely well organised. Mark Foster is an expert in his field, able to stimulate and stretch the youngsters. The imaginations of all involved were captured and I was informed by schools afterwards that many of the children used knowledge acquired during the day in subsequent science lessons! The event was a great success and it is something that the Local Authority would be very happy to endorse next year!

The children were provided with a unique learning opportunity in an exciting and challenging environment. They were able to explore and discuss ideas and offered just the right amount of guidance to the children thus allowing them to form their own ideas and strategies. I hope it runs again next year so that another group of children get the opportunity to go.

It was fascinating. I learnt plenty, had lots of fun and made a few new friends. It was great!

Mark worked with Coventry & Warwickshire Business Link last year. The project was to identify potential new motorsports for an existing venue near Coventry. The strategy was to diversify the business by exploiting the resources and reputation of the existing facility. Mark worked closely with the client to clarify, identify and focus their requirements.
Mark was able to identify new customers for this client in various areas of motorsport. He also has the personal contacts to deliver these opportunities to the client. Mark showed energy and commitment to convince potential partners.
Unfortunately, after considerable work the client decided to diversify the business outside motorsport, utilising contacts and resources that they already possessed.

FPC have carried out several key pieces of work for both Advantage West Midlands (the regional development agency for the West Midlands) and for the Government Motorsport Unit. I have been personally very satisfied with the calibre of work, the originality of thought and the extensive yet innovative approach to information gathering. I have also found the value added to be significant particularly through senior-level engagement and lateral thought applied to delivering options and solutions. I have also found FPC well able to present findings to a difficult audience through appropriate techniques to win over support.
I would not hesitate to recommend FPC for any innovative, developmental or complex, solution-based support. I have found their services competitively priced and extremely well delivered in the manner of a true, supportive partner.

FPC carried out the Phase 1 feasibility study for the National Centre for Off-road Motorsports project in February and March 2003.
The work entailed interviewing a wide cross-section of the motorsport industry, and forming conclusions as to the future direction of the project, and scoping that future direction.
The piece of work was undertaken in a very good professional manner by FPC, and updates were provided on a weekly basis to myself, as project manager/client. I was very impressed by the high-level nature, and network of contacts which this consultancy was able to utilise to the benefit of my project.
The work was undertaken in a very short timescale, and was delivered on time and within budget, and the competency and quality of the work delivered proved that we had gained value for money.
I would not hesitate in recommending FPC in this field, and have no hesitation in considering them for future stages of this project, as soon as funding has been secured.
