Welcome to SVN Consulting
We help you to understand your risks.
At SVN Consulting we identify and manage business risks so that you can excel and meet your business objectives without distraction.
We do this by working in partnership with you, providing insight to risk that allows you to maintain your competitive advantage.
Once risk has been identified, a key mechanism in the management of risk is the development of a structured and continuous training programme. Be it accredited training courses delivered to your employees, or a bespoke course designed around your specific needs; our decades of combined experience means that we are the natural choice for you.
We will support your learning and development team or your HR department in the development of a training programme that addresses your unique challenges.

I would not hesitate in recommending Steve to any other company; his easy going demeanour and personable skills are exemplary.
Steve undertook a gap analysis for me on behalf of MUSC prior to Stage 1 visit for ISO 28007.
Throughout the visit Steve showed a very good understanding of the standard and was able to impart knowledge and advice in an easy to comprehend manor. With this sound advice I was able to prepare very well.

If there is one single aspect which underlines SSI’s experience of Steve’s conduct and approach to the whole audit process, it is the manner in which he from the outset immediately put the management of SSI at ease.
This set a very positive tone encouraging open, frank and transparent discussions. Complementing this was Steve’s deft touch in finding the evidence he required, which in certain instances was not necessarily apparent, but there nonetheless. This persistence clearly benefited SSI, confirming his clear understanding and knowledge of the standard and its appropriate application to SSI’s management system. In this regard Steve was also able to tread the fine balance of conducting himself as an auditor, while also ensuring every stone was overturned, thus ensuring SSI had every opportunity of reaching the ultimate goal of achieving certification.

Would I use Steve Van Niekerk Consulting in the furture? Yes.. in a heart beat.. Thank you, keep up the good work.
Steven Van Niekerk Consulting was contracted by Country Cars of Bristol Ltd to assist the Managing Director with submission for ISO 9001:2008, which can be a complicated process from start to finish.
SVN Consulting has a trait of explaining things to me in such a way that:-
A) Makes logical sense and B) Takes away the worry on procedures that I would have otherwise thought would be none compliant.
To that end, Country Cars of Bristol have just been audited for ISO 9001, and we sailed through the audit with Steve’s help. We are now the only used car dealership in the country that is certificated, and I must put this down to Steve’s dogged pursuance and persistent knowledge and problem solving.
