Welcome to Sockmonkey Consulting’s brand new website!
Sockmonkey Consulting provides high quality research and consultancy services to organisations in the public, not-for-profit and social enterprise sectors.
My name is Simon Perks and I am the founder, director and – for the moment, at least – sole employee. I work with organisations across the public, not-for-profit and social enterprise sectors to help them to make better decisions, to improve their performance and to achieve better value for money.
On this website, you can find out more about Sockmonkey Consulting, learn about the services that I provide and see some of the projects I have been involved in. You can also find out more about my commitment to my local community and even see my top six reasons why Sockmonkey Consulting is the best choice for you and your organisation.
I will be posting here regularly with articles on topics relating to the areas I work in, as well as my thoughts on current developments in the public, not-for-profit and social enterprise sectors and links to other organisations and resources that you may find of interest.
You might be wondering where the name of the company came from. Well, I wanted to create a friendly, vibrant and ethical organisation that helps its clients while also having a little fun. And I needed a name that reflected that. So I decided to call the company ‘Sockmonkey Consulting’, rather than something more sensible (and more boring).
And so here we are. I hope that you will find this website to be not only a helpful introduction to Sockmonkey Consulting, but also a useful resource that you can come back to from time to time for help and advice. Clearly, I need to write a little more before we will get to that stage, but let us take things one step at a time.
So if you have any ideas for topics that you would like me to cover, or if you think that I might be able to help you or your organisation in any way, please do not hesitate to get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.
