Who We Are
We are a team of experienced Lean Consultants with decades of knowledge gained from working in senior positions in Operations, Change Management and Business Transformation roles. Our work has taken us around the globe within manufacturing, healthcare and service sectors for SME’s and large corporate organisations as employees and sub contract consultants.
We are owned and managed by Gary Sheader, who left a successful management career back in January 2010, not to build an empire with Futurestate Solutions, but with a burning desire to make it easier for you to improve your operations and cultures on an affordable budget. He felt that the consultancy and advisory roles of old needed to make way for a more dynamic and open minded method, which will achieve more profitable results that are SUSTAINABLE, with less jargon and complexity.
Our customers agree that we're different to our competitors and more than just a management consultancy or training company. We're improvement specialists that genuinely care about you and push the boundaries to take a new approach to improving business performance.
You can be sure that all our Lean Consultants share the Futurestate Business Values and we only employ people that fit within our trusted business culture.
Our strong networking focus and personable approach not only brings new ideas to you but new opportunities with customers, suppliers and collaborators. In the past we have made hundreds of referrals to our clients to ensure they gain the full benefits of our experiences and we will continue to do so for the future.
