About Us


Following long careers in business, in a range of different roles and various sectors; Barbara Capstick and Dr Peter Saxton set up Capstick Saxton Associates in 2003.

With totally different backgrounds and qualifications, between them they bring together a powerful combination of skills and experience in solving organisational problems, typically relating to people, processes and performance, at organisational, team and individual level.

We operate with a network of experts and practitioners from a wide range of sectors and professions, bringing to our clients the analysis and expertise to make an immediate impact and leave a lasting improvement.
