Below are a selection of client testimonials from recent activities.


John was engaged by our organisation back in 2002 and worked with us over a period of two years as we embarked on the start of our 'lean journey'. John delivered Team Leader training for our Supervisors and key employees, and Change Agent training which I was fortunate enough to complete myself in the role of Production Manager.

John is really passionate about lean and has a real depth of knowledge in the subject, which he combines with great leadership and facilitation skills. He truly understands how to really engage, motivate, and inspire the people he works with enabling them to achieve outstanding results. John demonstrates patience, and takes time with people to make sure they really understand the principles, tools and how to, best apply them. Indeed, when I look back over the years, and the many training and development opportunities for which I have been fortunate enough to participate in, I consider this lean and Change Agent training to be some of the most valuable that I have experienced during my career to date.

I would recommend the services of John Dee without hesitation to any company that are either starting out on their lean journey, or who are now looking to take lean to the next level in their organisation.

DEE ran a 'Psychology for managers' course for us. It was a great subject with clear notes, perfect timing and generated full interaction from the team

John was hired to help change years of culture that was set in concrete! We are an MOD refurbishment business with 300+ engineers who have "done it like that for years" a tall order is by any stretch of the imagination. He did it, and did it with style and flair!

Nick Chaffey, Civil Servant, DSG


I have known John Dee for over 15 years. We worked together at GKN when John was a process engineer. John moved to the SMMT IF and has become in my opinion one of the best "LEAN" practitioners within the UK. John's capability to communicate "LEAN" principles is exemplary he fully understands that in order for "LEAN” principles to be sustained throughout organisations, clear effective communication is “key”. John’s is one of the “good” guys he always finds the time to help other’s and always with a smile. I highly recommend Mr John Dee.

John and I joined IF at the same time and we spent the next 14 years improving the business performance of all manner of client companies - working together on some of these engagements. John can identify what really needs to be done and then deliver the solution in a very practical manner. John makes time for people and is extremely effective in building winning teams.

His ability to combine his improvement knowledge with the emotional intelligence to engage a team and deliver excellent result is first rate. John's approach is always flexible and focused on getting the most from the team he is either leading or coaching. John has a wide range of skills which he constantly refines during every engagement, whatever the sector.

John has a wealth of lean and process improvement experience spanning over a decade having worked in many industries and business sectors. His ability to see improvement opportunities and lead a team through the change is exceptional.

John is hard working and conscientious. He strives to see the task done and always delivers. I would happily have John on board in my business supporting a change programme in any number of capacities; from leading a shop floor team to facilitating a management development programme. He is competent and confident in all arenas and I respect him as a professional and a colleague.

Stuart Gibson, Operations Manager, Apollo Adhesives


John has a great practical knowledge of CI built on many years working in numerous industries. His people-orientated approach means he quickly engages teams whilst providing the right balance of constructive challenge. Having worked with John for over ten years, I have no hesitation in recommending him in leading CI in any business environment.

Chris Jones, Business Improvement Manager, Nestle


During the period of time in which John and I worked together I was able to appreciate his unique ability to combine his extensive background in implementing sustainable process improvement with a rare and highly valuable flair for developing innovative and ingenious solutions for clients.

Whether in manufacturing or service sectors, in skills related or process related assignments he was adept at quickly establishing excellent working relationships with all people at all levels of an organisation, irrespective of the size of that organization.

His impressive professional approach is always combined with a highly personable and confident demeanour, and a sense of humour and balance when dealing with complex and sensitive tasks.
He is one of the most competent and complete problem solvers I have ever had the privilege of managing, he taught me as much as I hope I taught him, and I wish him every success in his new venture.
