Stanton House Consulting
Stanton House specialises in helping organisations deliver on some of their most challenging strategic imperatives. Since our inception, we have been driven by a relentless focus on creating exceptional customer experiences and our Consulting business is a natural extension of that approach. Take a look below at what some of our customers say..
Stanton House Consulting was engaged to lead on supplier selection and Data Warehouse delivery for the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). This was a significant undertaking for FOS with demanding time constraints and the Client recognised they needed support for the selection process as well as the subsequent Solution / Data Architect Services to hold the supplier to account in their delivery.
Stanton House Consulting deployed resources with strong Data / Solution Architect expertise in Azure. The supplier was selected and our team delivered the technical designs for the solution architecture. We delivered the data models for the new analytics platform and acted as the hands-on technical lead on the implementation of the data pipelines.
“Stanton House Consulting were a key partner in the successful delivery of our Azure Data Warehouse upon which we built a new BI and Analytics Platform. The level of expertise in Data Architecture was key to holding the external supplier to account and getting the outcome we desired. The SH Consulting team were highly capable, and I would work with them again.”

Stanton House was engaged to deliver a workstream of the Integration Programme for global insurer, Willis Towers Watson following the acquisition of an Insurance Broker with a footprint across Africa and Middle East. The workstream had stalled and the internal Change Team were at capacity.
We deployed a small and highly experienced team to deliver the assignment. The work involved integrating Businesses across the region that were operating on multiple legacy systems. The delivery necessitated site visits to several volatile countries and demanded an extremely adaptable stakeholder engagement approach
“Deliverables included rolling out new infrastructure and office networks to 15 countries within 12 months. The critical integrations were completed successfully according to plan, budget and time by December 2019. The Stanton House Consulting team were highly accomplished and delivered a strong outcome.”

Stanton House was engaged by LCH Limited (part of the London Stock Exchange Group) on two separate assignments: (1) to undertake a review of a significant inflight programme and (2) to rapidly deliver a strategy around elements of the technology landscape for internal approval and subsequent presentation to an external regulator.
The first major assignment involved the deployment of a team of five consultants to undertake a review of a significant inflight programme (an enterprise-wide core application). The key deliverable in each case was the production of a detailed report for the Board of LCH Limited which received very positive feedback.
“Stanton House is a provider of Consulting Services to LSEG and LCH Limited and have successfully delivered two highly sensitive assignments over the last 12 months. The team quickly understood our requirements and delivered a very satisfactory outcome. Stanton House are a valued Consulting Partner to our Business.”

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development is a professional association for human resource management professionals providing accreditations globally. CIPD were looking to replace their existing legacy ERP system to drive increased technology centralisation and streamlining across their global operations.
Stanton House was engaged to help lead the business through the initial procurement RFP stage of the ERP vendor selection process, and to continue with delivery of the chosen ERP successfully through a Statement of Work agreement. This is a programme of work that is currently in flight.
“I am very impressed by the Associate provided – not just their level of expertise but their ability to work effectively with Finance and non-Finance colleagues across the organisation.. It has been helpful to have regular catch-up sessions with Stanton House to monitor progress of the project – it provides a strong governance framework to ensure the work is on track and any issues are swiftly resolved.”
Group Finance Controller
Dentsu is a multinational media and digital marketing communications company headquartered in London with a Japanese parent company. Dentsu made the decision to embark on a finance transformation to standardise processes and create a more cost effective and value-add finance function. This transformation was to be underpinned by shifting to an outsourced Shared Service Centre and implementing Microsoft Dynamics AX as their new ERP.
Stanton House partnered with key stakeholders at Dentsu in order to help scope out the programme and understand delivery capabilities that would be needed along the way. We supplied a Programme Director to run the finance transformation and have since further supported Dentsu in such areas as finance process design, ERP implementation, data migration, PMO and Change Management.
“Stanton House has played a critical role as the senior talent delivery partner for the Global ERP Implementation and Finance Transformation Programme at Dentsu.. In Stanton House we have a partner who offers a unique blend of both Finance and Transformation recruitment expertise and they continue to deliver the right capability, both in terms of behaviours and experience.”

We supplied a multi-disciplinary team across digital, business analysis and technology to drive out the new digital operating model and architecture, mapped business processes against the target customer experiencing and supplied a Scrum Master to drive the pace of technology delivery and quality.
“Stanton House were instrumental in helping us take the business concept from ideation through to delivery. They supplied a highly skilled team across various domains, working closely alongside the Verus360 team to deliver an innovative digital platform and launch it to market.”
