RDLC Members Testimonials: In Words and Videos
"We are working with an older VOIP system across our group with still relatively high bills and not the best service or quality while understanding the space had moved on were interested in a more full solution.
We were introduced to RDLC's telecoms provider through the RDLC Network and were immediately impressed by the functionality and the ability to use your desk phone, mobile or laptop to make calls from anywhere anytime. The costs savings were fantastic as well so to save so much money which could be put to use in other places as well as improving the product we had significantly made us very happy.
Just on this one deal we save many times our annual cost of membership to RDLC and it is one of many outside of everything else membership brings."
Ed Kelly, MD, Humilis Consulting
"Seeking good commercial advice from an industry peer on tax is difficult. Dean's knowledge and approachable nature has meant he has always been on hand when I have needed advice and support around tax and share planning. He's an invaluable number in my recruitment black book."
Samm Green, CEO, Know IT
"It’s fair to say I went to my first lunch club with a healthy dose of scepticism and was most attracted by the great telephone deal that was on offer. 6 months in, it’s fair to say that I’ve found talking to a variety of CEO’s all at different stages in growing their business, encouraging and inspiring.
I’ve gained ideas from people running vastly different businesses, in terms of sector, culture and style. But that’s one of the great things, everyone has their own take and you can’t fail to have a few useful takeaways from each meeting. It’s also nice to feel that you have something to offer to others too. (Gary’s humour isn’t always spot on but then nothing’s perfect is it?)
Logan Naidu, MD, Dartmouth Partners
“I have signed up to a number of suppliers who I had never heard of until I joined RDLC. I have saved time and money, whilst getting suppliers with specific industry experience, and beating what I already had in place every time. Having other members who can comment on the suppliers, just adds to the confidence when selecting.”
Jatinder Deo, MD, Involved Solutions
“I already had what I thought was a good deal finalised with a previous supplier for an Invoice Discounting facility for my contract runners. Sharing the structure and commercials of the deal with the RDLC members, I was advised much better options were available. I was also introduced to a specialist broker in the field by Gary and Dean, who helped me negotiate a superb deal. Suffice to say I not only saved thousands and received a flawless service; I am now fully knowledgeable with the structure of a great ID facility”
Chris O'Connell, MD, Chester James
“Buying a new CRM for your firm is one of the scariest and most confusing purchases you’ll make, far harder than buying a house! With the help of RDLC, I got the best deal with Bullhorn and great after-care support; which, when you’re a small player, can be hard to get from large suppliers.”
Ben Broughton, MD, Premier Group
"I truly collaborative group. A team of Directors who do everything they can to help each other out, and are offered incredible advice by Gary and Dean."
Craig Grant, MD, Cititec
"RDLC/Pirates are brilliant! Not only are you constantly learning from the best, but you also get the best deals out there and have a lot of fun.
Best thing I've done."
Ian Simkins, MD, Silven
"Most business leaders are consumed by their own business and very rarely lift their head about the parapet to see how the outside world are performing. The RDLC has given Recruitment leaders the vehicle to do this along with sharing ideas and best practice. Sharing each other's thoughts while supporting each other in an open forum. The single goal to support each other and enable each one of us to be better.
In the time I've been involved with the "Pirates", I can honestly say that the nuggets of information I have taken away has improved my business from both a strategic and operational stand point.
Darren Mills, MD, IT Works Resource Group
'Isl recruitment have been members of the RDLC for about 18 months and found it extremely useful on a number of fronts. Most importantly to us the peer to peer knowledge sharing but also on the cost savings they have helped us make with key suppliers and introducing to new tools and suppliers that have helped us improve our business.
Gary and Dean both have unique experiences and insight into the recruitment industry, which has helped us and am sure the whole group improve and drive our businesses forward.'
Henry Keeys, MD, ISL
"The knowledge base and friendship I have experienced since joining the RDLC is quite simply unique. Every meeting is purposeful and adds unrivalled value to my business, the founders and other members never hesitate to share ideas and practices to assist with our growth as well providing access to the industries finest training and coaching platforms enabling us to develop individuals as well as the business. The RDLC is the elite members club for the recruitment industry.
Brett Ennals, MD, Cento Group
"We've been members of the RDLC for almost two years and have found the lunch meetings to be informative, value-adding and always a great deal of fun. The What's App group provides a fountain of knowledge for all things recruitment. Our business has moved up a couple of gears since our involvement with Gary and the Pirates. If you're an ambitious, growing business, it's a no-brainer to join the crew!
Sachin Ruparelia, MD, Camino Partners
"I joined RDLC 3 months ago as I was at a point in the Xpertise growth cycle where engaging with industry peers was crucial in enabling best practice and world class approach in our environment. Not only has this happened, but I have experienced brilliant leadership sessions, gained useful strategic inputs and to cap it all off saved at least £13k off the 2017 bottom line, not even mentioning the greater banter. It can be lonely at the top, so it's an absolute no-brainer to be part of this leadership club.”
Richard Harris, MD, Xpertise
