Home > About > Our clients
When we ask our clients why they choose to work with us again and again, they tell us it's because they know they can count on us at their most critical moments. They know we're totally focused on their agenda, and we'll put every last effort into securing the best long-term outcomes for them.
We work across a range of sectors helping our clients to develop their strategies and transform their businesses. Many of our clients are multi-nationals and household names.
More than 85% of them have used us more than once because they know that as an independently owned consultancy with no commercial ties or alliances, we focus solely on delivering objective and impartial advice.
We are trusted to run critical programmes and are currently managing over $500m of client investment across a range of high profile assignments. Learn about how we have supported our client’s challenges in the case studies below; this is a small selection of some of the many clients we have worked with over the years.

Berkeley helped develop the turnaround strategy for the Post Office’s largest 300 branches.
A blend of programme delivery, governance and change management expertise filled a critical gap...
How we helped the Post Office tackle a complex transformation programme.
From the start, there was a strong emphasis on embedding ownership for the new operating model within the team. It didn’t feel like working with consultants.
Charles Horton, GTR
Working with Berkeley was fun, interesting, challenging – and ultimately incredibly useful. Berkeley's no-nonsense advice was always considered, frank, constructive and informed by their experience. It has helped ensure that our strategy can be implemented, rather than sit on a shelf.
Chris Gardner, PRS for Music
Berkeley grasped control of a project that had no clear scope, governance, budget or plan! And we turned the situation round to a very successful delivery. They set a clear model, and standard, for how we run projects in the future. This was an unusual and difficult assignment and there are many companies that would not have come on the journey with me. As ever, Berkeley shone though.
Greg Swimer, Hogarth Worldwide
Berkeley colleagues were approachable and had a sleeves-rolled-up attitude. I have no hesitation in recommending Berkeley.
Helen Byrne, Barts Health
If you have a very complex, multi-tiered, multi-phased program, these guys have the blueprint for success.
Nigel Bainsfair, Xerox
One of their distinguishing factors is the lack of an agenda; it is pure focus on the work and a dogged approach to getting it done – with a high level of professionalism, confidence, capability and a dash of humour. Berkeley was truly an extension of our own team. It says a lot for their standards when they consistently deliver us really good people.
Wayne Webb, Dow Jones
Our people have interests and causes they want to support beyond their day-to-day work, so we make every effort to help them achieve this.
