Tangent Lines Testimonials
Gemma is a tenacious, strategic individual who provided reporting, analysis and financial management services to CE over many years.
She is trustworthy, self-starting and adds value to everything she does. She is great with data and speedy too.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her if you're looking to outsource these areas or need a boost to deal with any backlog or busy period. She's a good'un.
Karen Hall, Digital marketing specialist, MD Connecting Element
I utilise Tangent Lines for my book-keeping for my design business.
Before I used to have nightmares chasing clients for money owed and for doing my own VAT returns each quarter.
Gemma and her team make sure I don't have to deal with the hassle!
Simple, affordable and professional.

Gemma Rogers - Tangent Lines was commissioned by Staffordshire County Council to conduct an evaluation of the Multi Agency Centres (MAC's) operating within the Tamworth Academies. The evaluation met the need to develop an initial evidence base for the MAC's.
Gemma and her team delivered impressively, they were flexible in their approach and responsive to the changing demands. The quality of work produced was excellent.
The evaluation report produced met our expectations and the presentation of the findings was delivered to key stakeholders where there were opportunities for questions with regards to the evaluation process and outcomes.
Gemma has undertaken research evaluations for me previously and she has consistently delivered well.
Pam Dhanda, District Commissioning Officer, Staffordshire County Council
Tangent Lines were the first external agency that SIG has used for targeted customer research and as such I was initially unsure of what value their findings would be, but I have to say I have been particularly impressed in their approach to understanding our business and delivering real value for money research.
By taking the time to understand how our business operates, Gemma and her team have ensured that they provide us with useable data, within agreed timeframes and in a format that is easily understandable.
Gemma in particular is very hands on, always available and flexible in her approach to supplying with what we need, even if that need evolves from the initial brief!

I have worked with Gemma and Tangent Lines since September 2011, during which time they have provided digital performance reporting for corporate clients and assistance with internal operations. Gemma devised and project managed a bespoke Management Information System for Connecting Element that enabled realtime reporting on project progress. This has substantially increased the efficiency of our financial management and has ultimately improved our cash flow.
Gemma is diligent, reliable and provides great value. Her input has shown tangible results for my company. On a personal level I have found Gemma very amenable to work with and I would highly recommend Gemma and Tangent Lines as a valuable supplier.

I was a little dubious about using external consultants due to previous poor experiences. However, I am pleased to say that the experience with Tangent Lines and in particular Gemma Rogers has been a very positive and insightful one. I have been impressed with Gemma's knowledge, insight, professional but personable manner. Gemma's passion is evident in every call, email and meeting.
She took the time to ensure that the staff team and parents were actively involved in the consultation process and helped the senior leadership team to develop appropriate strategies. It really felt like she was one of the team!
The final reports were concise, easy to read and have given the team clear direction to focus our energies which will help to ensure the best outcomes for children and families living in our reach area.

Gemma worked with me when I was running Dragonfly Creative both when I was self-employed and later as a limited company with 14 employees. She initially assisted me in an administrative sense keeping the financial books in order, creating and chasing invoices, sorting all bills for payment and managing the VAT and tax returns with the assistance of our company accountants.
Her role expanded as the business grew and she became my confidant and adviser as the business required more stringent processes and documentation to run. She was pivotal in making sure the company had the appropriate health and safety procedures, disciplinary processes and office protocols. She worked very closely with myself and external advisors to make sure the company was compliant in all appropriate areas. As the company expanded Gemma helped with liaison with recruitment agencies, selection of candidates and arranging of interviews with potential new staff. Gemma was able to complete her obligations from both home and later in the office when the company moved to new premises.
Gemma is highly professional in the completion of her work, her liaison and her discretion with sensitive matters. Gemma is both a work colleague and a dear friend, I would not hesitate in recommending her as a supplier for any company, she is a pleasure to work with.
