“I have worked with Michael on two healthcare projects since April 2018.  I have been very impressed with both his enthusiasm and professional commitment to the projects.  He effectively delivered a new service engaging people from all different disciplines to ensure a common goal was achieved.  His clinical knowledge and expertise within the health sector are impressive.  I would willingly work with Michael again on other projects and have no hesitation in recommending both him and his company Saffron Steer.”

“Michael has delivered exactly what we asked for, and more besides.  He has displayed great skill at navigating a complex project and organisation, and at keeping all stakeholders informed, supportive and engaged.  He listens hard, and understands his clients’ needs really well. We are all very happy with the outcome of the project, and can recommend him, and Saffron Steer, highly”

“Saffron Steer has been really inspiring to work with. The combination of skills and experience you as individuals have brought to our bid has been just the right seasoning to bring out the flavour in the partners“

Commercial Director and Deputy CEO, GP Primary Choice Ltd

“Michael successfully delivered a project to actively engage senior managers and develop a creative approach to an aspect of our management strategy for Ramsay’s northern region of independent hospitals. This culminated in a senior management workshop facilitated by Michael during which his understanding of the hospital sector proved extremely relevant and useful and together with his energy and focus resulted in a highly engaging and productive exercise.”

National Clinical Lead, Hospice UK & Joint CEO, St Christopher’s Hospice London


“Michael is an energising and engaging facilitator who uses his diverse experiences to great effect in encouraging lively discussion around collaboration and innovation. Him and his team helped us develop our Hospice Strategic Plan, and also worked with a group of 7 Essex Hospices to explore collaboration in a meaningful way. Both of these engagements have helped us move the work on considerably, and the process has also been enjoyable because Michael is so professional and positive. Thanks Michael”

CEO, St Helena Hospice, Colchester, Essex

“I would highly recommend the services of Michael and Saffron Steer. Working with Michael has improved the outputs and insights of the business development team at Nuffield Health Leeds Hospital. Michael was employed to help us add structure to our 2013 marketing strategy and delivered a clear and well-informed base line and the tools for the team to continue to develop this locally. Michael helped to inform a fresh perspective on our approach to business development. He quickly integrated with the team and communicated eloquently with all levels within the hospital. He was passionate, enthusiastic and a pleasure to work with”.
