Client reviews

“I first worked with Osirix in September 2015 and was immediately impressed by their passion and attention to detail. Since that time, I am delighted to say that Osirix has represented my business in a number of our client organisations, writing significant plans within Rail Franchise Bids with consistently high scoring results. The feedback from each client has been exceptionally positive, and my team have also thoroughly enjoyed working together – they are our ‘go to’ Technical Author!”

N. Lockwood, Founder and Director at Intuitive Interim & Executive Search

“We engaged Osirix in October 2018 to deliver the ECML TCP bid. They brought extensive rail franchising experience and produced a winning bid along with significant improvements to the bid process. These facilitated the creation of high quality content and consistent methods of working. I highly recommend Osirix, their rail knowledge and attitude towards their work.”
