our services

You can choose what you need from our services

Or you can talk through your issues with us and allow us to guide you.
We will only recommend services that we believe will be of genuine benefit to you.

Strategy and Planning

We can guide you through this process. We will also produce an action plan – a strategy is not much use unless you are clear about how to implement it.

Your Team

We can become your in-house team. You can use us as much or as little as you want as we charge by the hour.

Board Advisor

We are experienced at governance in business, charitable and political spheres. We can act as an advisor to the Board in order to provide another view point for SMEs, to advise or to direct towards particular business ambitions. We can also take on Non Exec Directorships.

Winning Pitch

If you are preparing a pitch and want to make it outstanding, then we can help. We can advise by working with you on the personality types involved, and how you might best communicate with them in order to win them over, as well as reviewing and contributing to documentation.

Executive/Partner Support

Saltwhistle has worked with owners, partners and executives, who have felt they have needed support with their own internal and external communications, networking or reputation enhancement. We have also enhanced the development of professionals looking to become partner in a professional firm.

Law and Accountancy

We have highly specialised knowledge of these sectors and we understand the needs of partners. We can undertake small or major projects. Clients have included Andersen, Deloitte, Ernst and Young, PWC, David Arnold Cooper, Thomas Eggar, Stephenson Harwood, as well as numerous small practices and sole practitioners.

Business Start Up

We can help you plan for your new business. We can put together a brand image based on what you are trying to do and produce your business cards and website. We can help you develop a marketing plan and a timetable of actions to keep you on track. We can put together a package that suits you, your needs and your budget.

Blue Sky Thinking

We can help you consider a new issue, or encourage new thinking and ideas, through facilitated meetings.

Recruitment Support

If you are looking to recruit marketing personnel for your business, we can review candidates and be present at interviews to give a professional, skills based opinion.

Staff Cover

Previously, we have covered maternity leave and illness. This does not have to be full time, but be enough to support your business in the way you require.


We can produce your in-house newsletters and conduct interviews with clients, or with special guests at conferences. Our Principal Consultant is a professional member of the Society of Women’s Writers and Journalists.
