About Us

PerformancePlus has been helping companies with management structures and quality frameworks since 2003 and has a 100% success record in helping companies to gain the International Standards certifications that they seek. Our philosophy as a company has always been to make the systems work for our clients rather than trying to make our clients change to suit some arbitrary system or process. It is that subtle yet supportive approach that has gained us an ever increasing circle of friends amongst our clients (and some amazingly good testimonials).

Since 2012 we have been able to offer a wider range of services to our clients including Marketing, Business Coaching and Mentoring as well as a wider range of ISO Standards support including OHSAS18001, ISO27001, ISO11001 and BS1090
