He reacted quickly, and efficiently

I asked Mike to help me identify some solutions to some acquisitions that I was involved with in 2010 and 2011 and his advice and network of contacts, some of whom Mike introduced me to directly, were useful in shaping my thinking and consequent actions regarding the work I had undertaken and was strategising for further work going forward. He reacted quickly, and efficiently and was careful not to over promise and under deliver.

Mike Deacon makes a significant contribution

My public services team at Geldards has worked with ABFL for a number of years. We have mainly collaborated on Cabinet Office Spin Out and Transformation projects with local authorities and prospective Spin Out teams or entities. ABFL has been an invaluable partner in these projects, taking the lead in relation to the preparation of Business Plans, Financial Modelling and Stakeholder Engagement. Mike Deacon makes a significant contribution to the preparation of Options Appraisals and Marion Deacon has helped to organise and deliver very successful engagement events. We have built a strong partnership with ABFL and they are some of the first people we approach when considering bidding for such projects.

Mike was invited to hold the Company Secretary

Mike Deacon of ABFL enabled Public Health Action Support Team CIC (PHAST) to become a rounded Social Enterprise organisation to sustain the public health consultancy that we offer to the NHS in the UK. By providing an operational environment and assisting in shaping and organising our processes, the organisation could focus on its core competencies and to grow as a business. Mike was invited to hold the Company Secretary role as we evolved, which he did until November 2010. Mike and Marion Deacon at ABFL continue to provide PHAST with consultancy and project management services.

Mike exceeded our expectations

When you’re a small organisation expanding quickly you need to get three things from an investment and loan adviser. The knowledge they are working in your interest, the knowledge and experience to give you the right advice and importantly deliver on the requirement. Mike exceeded our expectations on all three. Mike is now part of our strategic growth thinking. We would not want to make a move without his advice.
