In the spirit of the original Maverick (Samuel A. - a Texas rancher in the 1800's), we do not brand our clients - each one is unique.
We are client focused, if we haven't helped you succeed, then we've still got work to do. A dynamic organisation, we incorporate history's best with current trends to project a "best" plan of action. Understanding that success doesn't have standard operating hours or locations, neither do we. We strive to maintain a high level of accessibility with clients.
Working with clients to manage their expectations – setting realistic, achievable goals and structuring an action plan for success. Often businesses do not fail, they simply fail to meet unrealistic targets. By managing expectations of what the business requirements and abilities are, Eddy & Co is able to structure an achievable and streamlined plan of action for success. Included in this is setting viable and achievable funding requirements and necessary versus excessive expenditure.

"I have worked with Eddy & Co for 10 years, having first met Edwina Hughes whilst sitting on a loan fund panel she was chairing. My experience in working with her at panels encouraged me to approach her to become a mentor with oneLondon.
Her enthusiastic approach inspires businesses and enables her to establish an effective rapport with clients and colleagues alike. As a chair of the loan fund panels, she evaluates a business’ strength and weaknesses and goes a step further to provide guidance to further the business. This feedback provided an added benefit for clients attending loan panel as it enabled them to use this extra guidance to better structure the spending of their loan.
When the mentoring programme came under my leadership, Edwina was foremost as a potential mentor as I had seen the benefit of her guidance and support whilst sitting on panel with her and visiting clients. As a mentor on the programme, she helped successful loan fund clients establish their businesses and reassured oneLondon that monies loaned would be paid on schedule due to effective mentoring."

"We needed to rebrand and change our image from a self-employed small group of associates to a fast growing Ltd company. The remit was to develop a truly corporate image reflecting the "shift".
Eddy & Co Limited reviewed all our marketing materials and took a highly personal and responsive attitude to what our business is doing, and will do in the future.
Eddy gave us a balanced and realistic approach to what we can do with the budgets available and helped us to put a strategic marketing policy in place for several years to come."
(Valerie Merrill, Director Merrill Consultants Ltd - IT Trainers that always go the extra mile)
