Our Vision - Who we are

Recognising Excellence is a business improvement specialist working with organisations to overcome their challenges with growth and change.


Our vision is to be one of the UK's leading support specialists in all aspects of business improvement and change management - because without these vital business skills, fewer organisations will continue to survive and thrive in our increasingly dynamic and competitive marketplace.

Our company initially focused on helping businesses undertake independent reviews of their performance by benchmarking them against internationally recognised accreditation programmes designed  to grow their business. The focus of these accreditation programmes was primarily on developing a business's  most important asset, their people.

Having worked with organisations of all sizes and in all sectors in the UK for 20 years, we have an intimate knowledge of business challenges and needs. As these challenges and needs  changed and developed, we began expanding our range of solutions.

Recognising Excellence has three divisions which provide accreditations for specific business sectors and client needs - Money Advice Service, Advice Quality Standard, and Lexcel.

Our head office is in Gloucestershire, and we cover the whole of the UK with more than 70 Associates. Our people have a vast range of global and national experience and expertise in business, law, strategy, leadership and operations in both the public and private sectors.

Our aim is to become a trusted business adviser to your organisation.

Our promise is to assist you in areas where we have the expertise and help source the best possible solutions for you if we don't have the answers. 

We won't sell to you, we will support you.

We will offer you solutions that are relevant, meaningful and proven to be successful.

We will work beside you to improve your business.

We will become part of your team.

We want to work with you for the long term - because your success will be our success.
