Case Study

Ralph Bragg

Founder & CTO, Raidiam

“We engaged Ovate to assist initially with setting-up our delivery function. Following the successful delivery of a major client, the focus switched to Raidiam as a growing concern. Ovate provided an initial strategy workshop, that aligned the founders on our objective, our expectations, and how to diversify our interests to be able to deal with changing times. Over the next 18 months, the company has transformed from a few mates with an idea, into a company that employs staff, has a scaleable operation built on outsourcing, and a business development approach that is value focussed, and set-up to be efficient through early and regular qualification.”

Barry O’Donohoe

Founder & CIO, Raidiam

“As I grew into the new world of being a business owner, with increasing responsibilities including looking after employees, it was a great benefit to engage Ovate in a coaching capacity. Their knowledge and experience; coupled with an open and non-judgemental approach allowed us to explore all options and enable me to choose the path that felt the most comfortable. Having the ability to revisit areas and explore different routes has led to greater certainty in my day to day role. There are no topics that cannot be broached, nothing is too small, as they add up to an approach that works for me as an individual.

Danny Caro

Business Start-Up Client

“I was introduced to Daryl by a mutual friend with whom I was setting up a new venture. Straight from the off, I found Daryl to be very patient and meticulous in listening to our needs and he produced a top-notch business plan, that was both thorough and excellently presented.
Daryl also offered sound advice and his expertise, eye-catching illustrations and graphics were a key feature in the final product which we could all be proud of.”

Gary Bullimore

Business Start-Up Client

“Catherine has helped us shape our vision and define our target market. She’s given us really practical advice and challenged us to make the right decisions early on in the process. I’m confident we have a solid base to build upon and grow our business in 2021. I would recommend anyone with a business idea to work with Ovate first to get it right!”

Case Study

Marc Silver

Founder & CEO MurWalls

“Ovate brought a calm, anything is possible mentality to the table. My problem wasn’t getting work in, it was dealing with the opportunities in a clear, professional and controlled manner. Daryl and the Ovate team have given me an approach that works for me, provides instant access to my latest position, and also a way to ‘empty my head’ to enable me to give customers the best MurWalls can provide.”

Paul Krisman

Programme Director

“I worked with Ovate on a complex transformation programme for a global organisation. Ovate brought to the table best-practice delivery management capability and applied deep pragmatism, experience, and raw skill to engineer a welcome outcome. Their knowledge and ability were bought to bear on a stream of problems that were handled professionally and collaboratively to provide win-win results against a difficult backdrop. Ovate’s approach is open, they act in “coach” and “trusted advisor” capacity with their eye firmly fixed on achieving the delivery goals ahead. I strongly recommend any prospective client to explore further, they are unlikely to disappoint.”
