On behalf of Cattleya CIC, we would like to express our gratitude to Douglas for the support that you have provided to the company and students at King Charles 1 School.
The legal advice given to the Directors has made a significant difference to the smooth running of the company. In addition, the support and guidance with the restructuring of the management team has been outstanding.
Also, the opportunity for students to tender and attend cooperate events has been an exceptional experience for them, giving them the confidence to develop business skills in a realistic situation. The events are always professionally organised with creative flare and imagination and are an excellent model for the students to aspire to.
