Audit Wales, a global pandemic and staying connected

As we move into April 2021 my time working with Audit Wales is coming to a close.  My background in the public sector and our company’s focus on public sector transformation in Wales meant that the opportunity to support Audit Wales was one we jumped at.  When I met the Auditor General for Wales, Adrian Crompton, in a coffee shop in Cardiff (remember those days?) back in January 2020, he […]

There are a number of retrospective pieces around at the minute as we cross our fingers and hope we are exiting the worst of the pandemic that has taken a terrible toll on society and provided a desperate jolt to the system.

What’s next? Change and Covid19

Meet our Associates

At Perago we pride ourselves in being specialists at what we do; we support organisations to deliver better services to their users.  When we first had the idea to create a business that could do this, we spent many an hour together in coffee shops, bars and on trains between Swansea and London working through our idea.
