The vast majority of my new clients are referred by existing clients, vets, specialists or professional advisors. I’m super proud of the achievements over the years, but don’t just take my word for it …
Having chaired the Pet Advisory Committee for my first 5 years as Member of Parliament for Chatham and Aylesford, from 2010-15, I have been grateful for the support that Miranda has provided in the form of Secretariat. Miranda has a thorough understanding of the sector and is well acquainted with the issues and the organisations working within it. Miranda has always provided a professional and non-bias yet well-informed understanding and secretarial support to the group. While always ensuring all administrative duties are met, Miranda has provided a comprehensive background and context to each of the issues that have been addressed by the committee. I would recommend Miranda in the highest regard.

DogBuddy was a startup in 2013 with the aim of building an online marketplace for connecting dog owners with reliable dog sitters. We contracted Miranda to help us to understand the possibilities of, and how to manage a critical incident involving a dog whilst in the care of a sitter. She developed us a Due Diligence and a Serious Incident Protocol within the given time frame and budget. These were useful documents that not only met our needs (and those of our sitters) but which also adhered to current dog boarding/care legislation. DogBuddy has now grown to be Europe’s leading online dog sitting and home dog boarding community. We are looking at ways of expanding our services and wouldn’t hesitate to use Miranda’s consultancy again.
Richard Setterwall, Founder and CEO DogBuddy
I had the pleasure of working with Miranda on our complex stakeholder forum, involving key representatives from the fields of retail, farming and academia. Miranda provided a seamless, efficient and conscientious organisation for what was a challenging project, making it both smooth running and successful. I thank Miranda greatly for all of that and can certainly recommend her excellent and professional project management services.

Miranda was one of the most enthusiastic and imaginative animal centre managers I worked with at the RSPCA. She is not content with just doing the job or even just doing it right, she wants to lead the way and innovate to deliver value for money and the best service possible. She has a thorough knowledge of animal welfare and people management and is a woman I would trust to initiate, innovate and deliver results.
Jackie Ballard, RSPCA Director General (2000 to 2007)
Miranda has undertaken for the RSPCA in the past eight years several large event management projects including organising the first annual summer conference and marketing the annual Good Business Awards. She has done this to a very high level of efficiency, professionalism and expertise which ensured all events were run successfully. The RSPCA also uses Mirandas skills as a shelter manager and trainer on overseas courses and I would recommend her as a trainer as well as being able to offer independent advice on overseas animal welfare projects.

We approached Miranda because we knew the company needed advice to hone our messages, unify our brand and enhance our website and catalogues to become more client focused. She broke the project into manageable steps, and over a five year period has developed the repackaging of all our products, updated the product literature, set up social media platforms and by using multiple channels and leveraging low-cost options, we have reached new audiences. Miranda is always on target streamlining our ideas and with strong copywriting skills and excellent marketing instincts, she has helped us to move the business to a great new level. She is so easy to work with, but isn’t afraid to challenge or create a debate to ensure the best outcome is achieved for the company. We know that she is genuinely invested in helping us to succeed and has gone above and beyond for MDC. We highly recommend working with her.
