HR Associates of BD Roper HR Ltd
We have worked with Brenda Roper for several years. Our concerns have mainly related to unsatisfactory employee performance and attendance. With Brenda's guidance we terminated the employees contracts without the employee taking any action against us. Brenda’s guidance and precision were invaluable. We have also been the recipients of the regular stream of technical advice of personnel matters relating to legislative changes and tribunal decisions which she provides, ensuring we are able to manage staff professionally.
Ian Bowers, Managing Director, George Weil & Sons Ltd
One of the best courses I have had the privilege to attend. Brenda Roper is an excellent trainer and makes the training interesting whilst ensuring the delegates receive all the correct information whilst also being able to relate it to their circumstances and talk about specific issues

Brenda was really helpful when we needed to better understand how maternity pay works, and she came to help us at very short notice
Rita Tinney, Director Keats Estate Agents & Keats Letting Ltd
Excellent and engaging trainer who facilitated conversation and learning through working in groups and discussion nicely. Clearly knew subject matter inside out, held pace and delivery of session well - thoroughly enjoyable training
Equality & Inclusion Matters Course attendee
As a SME, we felt our most cost-effective option was to outsource our HR requirements and in B&D Roper we have found an excellent business partner who fully understands the increasingly complex minefield that is HR legislation and is able to communicate that in lay terms to those of us who don’t. Brenda has been able to provide a wealth of expertise in the type of issues that all small businesses encounter from time to time.
Jill Ford, Director, Dramco Ltd
Brenda provided our Non Executive Board of Directors with a factual yet pragmatic evaluation of both legal and cultural issues with some shocking revelations. She navigated her way through some very unsavoury conduct which eventually led to exposing fiduciary breaches from our own Board of Directors amongst other HR issues. As a direct result of her investigation we were able to bring about a change management programme. I personally recommend Brenda Roper to any organisation seeking a professional, experienced and efficient advisor to a wide range of HR matters.
