We have been extremely grateful and appreciative of the support and sage advice given to our board and leadership team over 2020. Brad has been an exceptional sounding board and has had some extremely substantial impact. He is a brilliant listener and can bring practical, logical solutions that we can implement that can have a big impact in a people business like ours. Brad has really strong integrity and is trusted across our business. We would have no hesitation to endorse him to any other recruitment business, looking to work with a hands on, thoughtful and supportive board / leadership advisor.
Brad Lamb – Managing Director at Venturi
We’ve been working with Bradley for just over a year now and he’s been a superb addition to our Board. His cool and calm demeanour helped us navigate some very choppy waters during the pandemic, ensuring that important decisions were made with logic rather than emotion. My relationship with my business partner is now stronger than it’s ever been and we have Brad to thank for that. It was this that led to us carrying out an MBO (buying our third partner out) and ultimately Brad’s appointment as Chairman to Camino Partners. I’d highly recommend him to ambitious businesses wanting to scale.
Sachin Ruparelia – CEO
We initially engaged with Brad in early 2020 and at that stage we weren’t aware of the impending pandemic. Looking back we’re really pleased that we started working with Brad when we did as he has been instrumental in guiding us through unchartered territory. His knowledge of the recruitment sector is excellent - this coupled with his overall business acumen, drive and ambition has helped us to push our business forward in what has been an unprecedented year. Brad is always willing to go the extra mile as well as being there to talk through problems and give advice on a personal level, so without a doubt we would highly recommend Brad and his team at To Augment.
Chris Devonshire – Co-Founder
I attended a great two day course on Mental health First Aid. Chris has a fantastic presentation style & is very engaging. He delivered a fun and interactive two days of training, with everyone leaving the session feeling confident to put what they’d learnt in to practise. Thank you for a brilliant two days, Chris. Highly recommended.

Having built up a strong trust with Philip over many years, he was an obvious choice to handle our transaction the sale of RZ Group to Outsource UK. I thought the process of finalising Heads of Terms would be straightforward, however Philip really opened our eyes to the level of detail required. On reviewing the offer, he advised that there were a number of areas requiring further clarification and negotiation and by the time Heads of Agreement were signed, some of the terms had been greatly improved. The deal process itself was far more complex than we had imagined. Throughout this, Philip remained calm and clear in his advice. He really cared about securing the best possible outcome for us and has all the right values. I would advise anyone selling a recruitment business to use Philip without hesitation.
Andy Barton | Former Shareholder
Philip supported us through the marketing, negotiation of terms, due diligence & contract negotiations when Easypay was acquired by Workr Solutions. His professionalism, knowledge & general calm demeanours during, at times, a very stressful process, were invaluable. I would wholeheartedly recommend Philip’s expert guidance to support any business seeking to acquire or be acquired, especially in the Recruitment sector.
