EMIN were really pleased with the external evaluation of our ERDF funded project, “Enterprise Inc”, recently undertaken by Kate and her team. Their approach was thorough and robust, and they really took time to understand the project, the roles of the various delivery partners and – most importantly – the beneficiaries. They kept us in the loop throughout their work and have provided challenging and thoughtful insights throughout. We welcomed the opportunity to share results with, and learn from, peer projects elsewhere in the country and we are very happy with the final report. It will be invaluable to us in seeking follow on funding.”

Russell Copley, CEO of EMIN


We were really impressed with Kate Beresford’s approach to this review. She took the time to fully understand what we needed to know and built a great rapport with all our stakeholders in order to get the richest possible insights from them. The report was clear and instructive and means we can take the next steps in our strategy.”

Dan Corlett, Assistant Director (Entrepreneurship and Innovation), Careers and Employability Centre at University of Birmingham


Sheffield Hallam University were very pleased with the review of the University’s support for self employment conducted by Kate Beresford Associates during 2012. We were impressed by the professional approach taken by the company, and in particular the proactive way in which Kate kept us informed and involved us in the process throughout the 5 month period. We will be using the report to inform and structure our future enterprise education offer at the University and its detailed findings will be invaluable in enabling us to do this.”

Sheila Quairney, Business & Enterprise Manager, Sheffield Hallam University


Kate Beresford Associates conducted detailed reviews of two key Royal College of Art entrepreneurship and enterprise programmes in 2011 and 2012.    We commissioned  Kate because of her experience and knowledge of university enterprise and knowledge transfer.  The resulting reports were considered and insightful and serve as useful tools, helping us continue to improve our programmes.  It was a pleasure to work with Kate.

Kate Beresford Associates has provided us with peerless support for the last few years; reinvigorating our marketing and membership processes, and providing excellent support for a growing calendar of events and activities. Diligent, dedicated, and thoughtful, Kate and her team have helped coordinate a sometimes disparate Board of Directors and provided us with tremendous peace of mind when it comes to the coordination of our key events.”
