our results

In business, as in any part of life, effort alone doesn't ensure success. Doing the right thing at the right time in the right way is what will drive results. Sounds simple doesn't it, but do we walk the talk?

The answer is quite simply yes, but don’t take our word for it. Take a look at the three case studies below to see Strontium in action.

See how stunning results were achieved in the public sector.

Spectacular growth can be achieved no matter what the circumstances.

With public spending under the microscope, driving an organisation forward that operates solely within the NHS environment may seem like an impossible task, but Strontium rose to the challenge.

Miad Ltd, a provider of non clinical training to the NHS, was acquired by Strontium in 2007. After an initial period of consolidation, an ambitious growth plan was devised. Against a backdrop of reducing public expenditure budgets and with patient care time being front of mind, Strontium set about re-defining the Miad brand and its product offering.

By developing a mixture of e-learning programmes and virtual class room training, Miad was able to shift its business focus away from just being a provider of classroom workshops. The result was a resounding success for all involved. Reduced costs to NHS trusts, increased patient time for Doctors, and a 500% growth in revenue for Miad in just two years,.... and all with absolutely no compromise on the quality of the training being delivered.

At Strontium we proved that distance is no obstacle.

Distance is no obstacle in the pursuit of growth.

With the UK economy moving towards recession Strontium looked far afield for investment opportunities, and at 12,000 miles away Australia is about as far afield as you can get.

A contracting economy at home in the UK coupled with ever increasing pressure on margins led Strontium to consider overseas investment. After assessing several options, Australia was identified as being a high potential new market opportunity. Linking with the UK Trade and Industry Department Strontium assessed the marketplace in detail and devised a business plan and exit strategy for a new venture.

In February 2009 Strontium established a communication and events management company based in Sydney. Thanks in part to relationships with existing global partners of Strontium, the company rapidly grew a sound client base to the point where in the spring of 2010 a management buy- out was negotiated.

In May 2010 The Learning Experience Australia was sold by Strontium who realised a 50% return on investment in just 15 months, an impressive achievement by any standards.

A change of scenery can be a good thing

March 2008. Strontium acquire a successful training and communications agency specialising in the development and delivery of product launch events within the motor industry sector.

Whilst the organisation itself was profitable and well respected within the motor sector its reliance on a small number of key clients within one market made it vulnerable. A strategic plan was quickly devised that, building on the skills available within the company, would extend both its product offering and the markets it would operate in. Given a severe downturn within the motor industry in 2009, this approach proved to be crucial.

In the two year period from January 2009, the company grew its client base across a number of business and industry sectors, ranging from insurance, county council, charity and a global provider of mobility solutions.

In terms of its product offering much of the growth was based around the provision of technology enabled learning. E-learning, virtual classroom training and smart phone learning apps. These now form the cornerstone of the company's business offering such that 95% of new business written in 2010 was achieved through these new business streams.
