Previous clients

  • Computing at Leicester has a strong partnership with Morphis. We advise on the company's business and operational strategy, including management and supervision of the company's technical team
  • Our consultant used an extensive background in evaluating interventions with offenders to work with national charity, Platform 51 to improve their data collection systems so that they were able to demonstrate impact to current and potential funders.

Professor Hedderman's advice throughout the assignment proved to be just what we needed; this included challenging (always very constructively) some of our current thinking and has enabled us to make a real step change in the way in which we approach this work.
