Testimonials

Having met with Paul Buck, Founder and Managing Director of EPIC, we at AON are keen to build a relationship with Paul and his team.  It is a credit to EPIC that they have identified the negative impact that problem gambling can cause to UK businesses, at all levels, and have developed a comprehensive and scalable solution that can fit in with any organisations needs.  The ideas and strategy of EPIC will reduce risks of my clients, and ensure that duty of care is fulfilled to all stakeholders.
Steve - DirectorSteve - DirectorInsurance Company
The figures on problem gambling are frightening and EPIC made us realise that there was a shortfall in our HR procedures, especially concerning duty of care for our employees, shareholders and customers.  We initially considered replicating our drink and drugs policy but EPIC made us realise that it is a very different beast.   Money well invested for our company's security.

Working with Paul is an inspiration. Through his personal experience he is able to adopt a common sense approach to gambling addictions and managing the potential risks within the workplace. Paul is also hugely generous with his time as he supports a number of charities that support young people with addictions too. If you are seeking a professional, cost effective consultancy I can think of nobody better that EPIC Problem Gambling Consultancy.
