Testimonials about consultancy and training provided by MIST Services.


"It has been an excellent experience working with you and I hope this will continue for many years to come. You cannot beat experience and you were able to bring both this and objectivity to the party!"

"Everything went really well with the timetable and we are super happy with your service and turnaround time. If anyone ever asks for a reference customer don't hesitate to give them my contact info"

"I met both Chris and Peter and they were both very knowledgeable and friendly. The service and advice, some of which is ongoing, has been amazing. I would suggest that all schools use MIST as either a starting point for their timetabling or as a place to do their timetable with expert advice on tap. I honestly couldn't be happier with the service and it has been the best CPD I have ever attended."


"Thank you very much for the excellent training. We found it very useful."
