Client testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

I found the day extremely interesting and useful. The quality of the talks was excellent and the content was very relevant to everyday applications. It was a useful forum to share experiences between operators, consultants and regulators. I also found the odour sensitivity test interesting and it is useful to understand where on the spectrum of sensitivity you fall when dealing with odour assessments. I would definitely recommend the course to others.

Kat Johnson

Idom Merebrook Limited

I thought the day was really useful and informative and a great chance to network. It was really useful to become a “lab rat” and do the sniff tests as it would help me to explain to customers how odour is assessed and tested in terms that they would understand rather than just saying “it gets sent to the lab”.
Neil Whitton

Cherwell District Council & South Northamptonshire Council

I found the day really interesting and informative. The case studies were especially useful; identifying what went well, what didn’t and how the root cause was identified as this is the kind of investigation we would be undertaking and will help us immensely in the future. The practical session was also eye opening and definitely helped me to appreciate that everybody experiences smells differently!
