How we work as a team on your Leadout Projects

How we work with you

Meeting up to get things started

Firstly, we are flexible and all of our services are tailored to your requirements. We will meet you  initially to identify the services that you may need from us. From that first meeting we will both understand where we can add value to your organisation and will agree a plan of action to develop a project.

When we know what needs to be done

With less complex projects we can provide you with a fixed price proposal detailing suggested services, timescales and specific roles and responsibilities. If you agree with our plan, we get it in the diary and get on with the work.

Most projects need a bit of Leadout strategy

For larger or more complex projects we work with you to build a strategy. This is where we use our facilitation skills and planning experience to make sure there is a clear plan and results.

How we work as a team

We are a virtual team but well connected

The business model for Leadout Projects is designed to use our core skills and add specialist expertise only when you need it. We have a number of partner companies that have been carefully selected for their skills and customer service. We only use these services when you need them and you have priority. This results in your organisation getting the best expertise in the market, when you need it and at the most competitive price.

It’s like working with a big company that’s been on a diet and got fit

Our existing clients have all the benefits of working with a much larger company in terms of resource, expertise and security of supply, but this “virtual business” model reduces the overheads in Leadout Projects and increases the level of service and value for money that we can provide to our clients. Our partners also benefit from clear, strategically thought out specifications from our Leadout people in each area of your project, allowing them to focus on their core skills and deliver great work.

Philip is a trained facilitator and has worked with a wide range of industries throughout his marketing career. Philip was the founder of Leadout Projects in 2007 and has developed the company to meet the needs of our major customers who initially used us to facilitate meetings and workshops in all areas of their organisations.

As the business was given more projects by our clients, we have expanded the strategy planning into marketing and in particular website development. Since 2009 we have be given responsibility for delivering major corporate web sites for many of our customers. At the core of Leadout Projects, Philip still focuses on that original idea of delivering good business planning by using our facilitation skills. This has major advantages when it comes to understanding our customers better and never assuming we can build web sites without a clear strategy.
