About Salient 

We founded Salient on the idea of providing significant benefits to your business by giving you access to the expertise & knowledge of an experienced Finance Director level partner with a background in governance, providing trusted & unbiased perspectives.

We discuss your business needs, prioritise the areas requiring support, identify critical success factors and with you create a realistic business or project plan. We then put our energy into recommending & managing the best fit personnel for you, adding fantastic value and a completely bespoke solution, from start to finish.
 

We provide flexible solutions & services for less cost than a full-time equivalent senior-level Director or we can act in a Non-Executive Director capacity if that suits you better.  We also believe that successful & high-performing teams create a successful & high performing business, so coaching and mentoring are a natural add-on service we provide that adds to your successful transformation. 

We’re constantly building our own network of trusted advisors and associates who all adhere to our values, principles, & processes.  We’re passionate about ESG and create sustainable solutions for all projects we carry out.  We’re now developing an ESG program to deliver to all our associates to ensure you get the full benefit.

OUR VISION 

To empower organisations and individuals to release their locked-in potential, understand their value and actively support the transformation to become effective business leaders.

OUR MISSION 

To challenge perspectives, disrupt stagnant thinking and focus attention on cherishing our beautiful world, whilst ensuring high standards of Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance are maintained. 

COMPANY FOUNDER 

My name is Angie Bishop and I founded Salient Consulting in 2016.  

I left school at just 17 with very few educational qualifications and even less self-esteem and confidence.  In my early twenties and with the backing of a couple of very supportive employer mentors who saw my potential, I was given the resources and encouragement to study part time whilst working.  

I invested 10 years of my evenings & weekends and qualified both as an accountant and a Chartered Company Secretary (Risk & Governance Practitioner).  I’m now studying (in my spare time!) for an ILM7 accreditation in coaching & mentoring so I can give back to society, with gratitude for the support I was given, part of the sustainable circular economy.

My working experience over the past 30 years has been in corporate, commercial & operational finance and the last 10 years as a Finance Director. In 2016, I set up my own professional services consulting business and now work as a Consultant, Director, Non-Executive Director, Business Coach & Mentor.

I’m passionate about enabling and empowering organisations and individuals to make positive change through challenging perspectives and mindsets, which is why I set up Salient Consultancy Ltd, as a vehicle to do just that. It often needs just a few salient points to set you off in the right direction with the confidence to do so, to achieve success.

Understanding purpose and value is the starting point. We use creative and solution - focused conversations to determine your goals, set actions to achieve them, and celebrate the successes.

What our customers say

Chris Storr, Managing Director at Autograph Care Group Ltd

Angie worked for me as Interim Finance Director in a start-up Care Group business. Over 11 months,
she was instrumental in building a finance team, developing systems and controls and managing a broad
range of projects. Her project management skills came to the fore throughout her time with us and her
achievements were borne out of hard work, diligence and persistence, having quickly come to terms with
the specific requirements of the sector. I would thoroughly recommend Angie for any interim or special
project assignment in any sector.
