After working as a consultant since 1999, Dr Sara McIntyre set up Gecko Ltd in 2007 to provide specialist economic development consultancy in the areas of:
- Sport and Leisure
- Social Enterprise
Most of her work is with public sector clients: developing strategies; monitoring and evaluating programmes; conducting feasibility studies; carrying out sector-specific mapping or development studies.
She also works with individual organisations developing business improvement plans and helping social enterprises to set-up and become established.
She works extensively with a selected group of partner companies to access specialist expertise to deliver the highest possible standards to clients on-time and on-budget. The aim is always to provide practical advice based on a sound understanding of the relevant issues, developed through robust quantitative and qualitative research.
