ISO Consultants

The AvISO Team

Dr. Paul Stevens PhD

Director and Senior Management Consultant

Paul started AvISO in 2012, but has worked with Quality, Environmental and associated resource efficiency initiatives for over ten years. In this time, he has built relationships with universities, accredited certification bodies and many companies to develop a comprehensive understanding of these subjects.


Now he works predominately with ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 50001:2011 across a diverse range of industry, to include construction, architecture, legal and manufacturing sectors.

Paul has a proven track record of guiding organisations, from SME to multinational PLCs on to successful UKAS accredited certification.


Focus is always given to realising the best from the ISO standards for the individual, and not making the individual fit the standard. Paul’s approach is always to develop a management system tailored to the individual goals and objectives of the organisation, so it can be more than just a certificate and will bring about truly positive improvements. This style ensures paperwork is kept to a minimum whilst helping organisations develop efficient processes that are clearly understood and communicated across their business.

Oliver Leaney

Management Consultant

Oliver joined AvISO Consultancy in January 2016 but had previously worked in the hospitality industry of where he was first introduced to the ISO 9001 standard; the corporate company at the time wanted to achieve this goal. Oliver witnessed what a company was like before and after the standard was introduced, and has first-hand experience of how it can change your business for the better.


Now working predominately on ISO 9001:2015, of which he is a certified BSI lead auditor, he has also worked on ISO 9001:2008, 14001 2004 and 2015.


The versatility of the standards means that the environment is never the same and has therefore worked across a diverse range of industries such as with Healthcare, Franchise, Hospitality, Marketing & advertising, Manufacturing, Retail, Telecommunications and the Service industry.


Oliver says that working with each business is like completing a jigsaw puzzle. We have to find the pieces in what you are already doing and then put them together to form a Management System that meets the Standards requirements but also adds real value to your business.
