“Working with Flying Geese has been a revelation – not only in what we found out about ourselves through their excellent research, but also because we found a perceptive consultant who understood the brief and our peculiarities, communicated brilliantly, stuck to the plan/timetable and delivered exactly the outcomes we needed.”

The Flying Geese Story

Beckie Smith founded Flying Geese in 2017 when she was trying to combine her career as one of South West England’s leading arts marketing professionals with family life. Since then the business has grown into a team of five experts working for clients across England, Scotland and Wales.

Flying Geese is named because we believe that successful careers are only made possible by the support of the family that we have around us. A happy work life helps you to be happy at home and vice versa. It is really important to us that we ensure our clients are happy at work, so that they can in turn be happy at home.  We are called Flying Geese because every time we write our company name, or see our logo, we are reminded of happy family times and how it is essential to get the work life balance right.
