Gillian Gibbon

Cost Management Consultant

Play hard...

Gill’s greatest satisfaction is seeing how she can help make a business leaner and pull out money to invest in growth and profits. In 13 years she has saved her client base over £25m and is an award- winning Auditel consultant. Gill loves outdoor adventures, especially in the mountains. Since her children were young they have been hauled up hills in both winter and summer.

Work hard...

My motto is “I find ‘Hidden Cash’ to fund your growth!” That is why I have been dubbed the ‘Overhead Expert’. Just as the pioneering Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis has championed getting a better deal for the consumer, my passion is doing the same for UK businesses.

My greatest satisfaction is seeing how I can help make a business leaner and pull out money to invest in growth and profits. Therefore, my favourite question to clients is to ask them regularly what they have done with the expenditure released back to them.

I enjoy running teams of our highly experienced and competent experts with the skills to deliver the best value and services according to the specific needs of each client. Here are some of my client comments:

Auditel provides a friendly and professional service. They have the market knowledge and expertise to secure the best possible pricing, and are always at the end of the phone for any queries, no matter how small. They care as much about our achieving value for money as we do!”– Head of Business Support, Brook

We would struggle to hire people with the level of expertise that Auditel and the wider Auditel network can offer. I would definitely recommend them to other organisations. The money they are saving us is put to much better use supporting the people who really need it most.” – Finance Director, Framework Housing

Auditel has become an outsourced member of our management team. To a relatively small charity, Auditel are a breath of fresh air. You always know where you are with them. They do what they say they are going to do and are completely honest. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to other businesses.” - CEO, Target Housing

For over two decades Auditel has pioneered the discipline of strategic cost management leading the way in lowering the cost of doing business. Our Total Cost of Purchase model takes into account all the costs- both direct and indirect- of business overheads.

Through our people, tools, knowledge and process, we have built lasting relationships with 4,000 medium and large-sized organisations across the UK by helping them to analyse, benchmark, manage and review their business costs.

With specialists in over 100 business cost areas and a broad range of industry sectors, we are fully equipped to understand your organisation and the challenges you face.

Such is my desire to help businesses, I have been recognised by Auditel receiving The Outstanding Achiever Award and The Auditel Consultant of the Year Award.
