Our support. Your results.

What our clients say about us

Matt and Debbie are experts in the latest innovation frameworks and practices. I had read the books, but their deep experience really showed as they were able to blend the best from design thinking, lean startup, and disciplined entrepreneurship, amongst other approaches, to create unique processes that were specifically relevant to dsp and our opportunities and culture. Within 2 months, Matt and Debbie were instrumental in taking a blank sheet of paper through to delivered product on time, on budget and to customer acclaim.

Matt and Debbie have been a pivot point for our organisation. They provided a wealth of guidance and expertise to help us through the development planning process and we are now taking this forward for our future planning. Visualising our past, present and future activities helped us recognise our company successes, tighten our future development strategies and cross reference all departments within the company to ensure a strong and coherent company plan.

The Advanced Propulsion Centre engaged Stocker Partnership to deliver Business Model workshops to early stage SMEs that are participating on our Accelerator Programme and to train our staff in confident use of the business model framework.

We started working with Debbie and Matt at Stocker Partnership at a the start of a big change period. Succession planning, ambitious growth plans and diversification were all on the agenda. The frameworks and ideas they brought to the table helped us to explore our vision for the future thoroughly; as a result we were able to mature our thinking. Most importantly, their flexibility meant they were right alongside us, every step of the way.

Matt and Debbie are really human partners who are able to deliver in-depth knowledge in a personable way that wins over a very cautious team, matches the requirements of the project, and turns knowledge into something that actually creates a valuable output.

Taking time to focus on strategy has paid huge dividends. I started this company because I love working with customers to provide a solution that is tailored for them. At the same time I know how vital it is that I think strategically about where my company is going. Matt's coaching and business advice has been of particular use in identifying new opportunities and moving the business forward. With Matt's assistance we've become a leaner, more efficient business with an ever growing customer base.

Matt and Debbie did an amazing job when contracted to the Royal British Legion by quickly getting to the root of the problems we had. They are excellent at bringing together stakeholders and pushing them to work closely together to get the project moving quickly to ensure it delivers. There were a lot of interconnecting activities and they managed to join the dots and get them moving and working together on the same path.

I have worked with Matt and Debbie in a workshop setting where they added great value. Drawing on their experience of working with a broad range of businesses and their excellent grasp of the academic and practitioner literature, they are able to communicate their ideas in a very accessible and interactive manner. Together, they offer a very engaging experience that brings out the best in their audience. Matt and Debbie are a great partnership.

I attended Debbie and Matt’s innovation masterclass—it really was excellent and very thought provoking. It showed me the importance of being innovative to succeed in business and that with the right coaching and support this wasn’t difficult for any business— even HR! Debbie and Matt’s style and skill as a coaches and the techniques they use helped me to think clearer and generate ideas—in easy steps.

Innovation can seem like a daunting subject that doesn't necessarily apply to your business on a day to day basis. When you think about innovation you tend to think of organisations like Apple. You might think, ‘I could never aspire to be an organisation like that.’

Stocker Partnership’s Masterclass on becoming more innovative has been useful because we've learnt ways that you can actually apply innovation to your business. Even if you’re a small business or a sole trader, you can still innovate and there are practical steps you can take to introduce innovation.

Debbie and Matt prepared the case study which formed the basis of the Warwick Business School International Healthcare Case Competition. The quality of their preparation and investigation was impeccable and the case set up a highly engaging and challenging scenario on which the whole competition revolved. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Stocker Partnership for this or related specialist support and I’d be delighted to work with their team again!

I have been fortunate to work with the Stocker Partnership on a number of occasions, always being thoroughly impressed with their ability to cut through the proverbial noise and support groups in defining, understanding and progressing propositions and business models. The combination of skills they bring to the table, provides participants with the resources and environment to first dissect the current state of the business, identify the forces within control and those in the market, to build a priority list of actions. The notes and direction provided as part of a session provide the foundations of a road map to enhancing team and business performance.

Management Transition

New management team transition

A family business wanted to successfully transition to the second generation management team, allowing the original owners to retire. We worked with the new team to fully understand the business models at play today, develop ideas for the future, create a transition plan and sensibly manage business risks. By supporting the team to collaboratively develop a new strategy, we proactively strengthened their strategy and leadership skills and worked together to agree their own management style. As a result, the owners were able to retire with confidence that the business was in good hands.


Stocker Partnership Agile Strategy Planner

1000% increase in project sales value

We challenged a client to reposition from a product-based business to a solutions-based one. This aligned the real value in the proposition with that actually experienced by the customer, and enabled our client to appropriately commercialise services currently delivered for free.

As a result of working with us to redefine the value proposition and develop the requisite sales skills, our client developed the confidence and the skill to create significant commercial opportunities in complex, multi-stakeholder organisations, and has now achieved an average 1000% increase in project sales value—sometimes more!


I have no hesitation in recommending Stocker Partnership. They are experts in innovation, pragmatic in delivery and great fun to work with.
