Meet The Team

About Us

We believe that well tested theory and rigorous evidence are important but that that they are irrelevant without practical delivery; and good delivery requires the right people for the job.

Our team is made up of people who have vast experience in the public sector. We have built our organisation around two key things, our expertise and our values and beliefs. Further to this, our trusted connections across the sector mean that we are able to supplement our team with experienced colleagues, who share the passion to make a difference.

C.Co’s roots are in the North West and our team has worked with and across a number of different organisations, to develop new ideas and share what we’ve learnt from our own journey. Whilst based in the North West, our team has worked across all regions of the UK, from the north east of Scotland to Cornwall, as well as Wales and Northern Ireland and understands the whole public sector landscape.

What our clients say about our work

The onsite team proved a good fit for the council. They were helpful and thought provoking, gave a clear challenge in a manner which didn’t feel anything other than a desire to help us improve.
Derbyshire County Council

C.Co’s recommendations provide clear focus for the future direction of the Programme and reinvigorated the Partnership. As always it has been constructive and productive to work with C.Co, who provided clear momentum to the work.

Cheshire & Warrington Public Sector Transformation – Director of Sub-Regional Transformation

C.Co proved to be one of the most professional companies we have engaged with in a long time. Their professional approach, understanding of the business at all levels, coupled with a proactive style, helped engage staff and bring about the right recommendations for the future.

Head of ICT, City of Wolverhampton Council

We felt that C.Co really listened to us both as an organisation and as individuals.  They worked with us to bring those views together to understand our ambitions, local needs and context. With their help we have a strategy that will help us deliver greater sustainability to provide the services that our customers need for the future.

Dawn Dawson, Director of Regeneration and Housing, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council

Working with C.Co on a recent project has been a very positive experience with outcomes that will provide a real benefit to our organization. Their public sector experience meant that issues were quickly understood and the project could hit the ground running and move along seamlessly.

Head of Commercial, Economy & Resources Finance, Rochdale Borough Council

We found working with C.Co to be really valuable in re-energising our LATC project, bringing challenge and experience along with a sense of momentum that will allow us to take forward the recommendations and deliver a successful project.
