Dennis Vergne

I have a passion for enabling transformational change that sticks; turning ideas into effective practice and behaviours. 

Although originally from Holland, most of my work has been within the British public sector, ranging from over thirty local authorities, the NHS, probation services and central government. 

After gaining an MSc in this field (Oxford - Distinction), I set-up RedQuadrant, a successful full service public sector firm, with Benjamin Taylor in 2007, before becoming Managing Director of Basis.


Matt Barnaby

Hello, I'm Matt Barnaby. I help to run Basis as well as delivering Projects, running training and supporting our interims.

I’ve been doing Agile, Service Design and Prototyping for many years now, all over the world. It's a way of working that really excites me.

What really makes me tick is knowing that I help people to deliver better services that make life better for people.


Rebecca Roberts

Hi, I’m Rebecca - I relish opportunities to create order where there is confusion. I learnt how to design and deliver creative solutions within a Transformation Team for a West London council, which means I really understand how to get to grips with complex problems and support teams to focus on delivering small concrete changes.

Currently working on projects in Adult Social Care at the London Borough of Bexley, I create order out of chaos and think strategically about how to make life better for the service user.

I have an academic background in Psychology, and a professional background in mental health prevention and intervention in the education system. With a passion for politics I cannot seem to shift. I relish the challenge of team engagement, working in an Agile capacity of iterative change to overcome complex problems in complex Services.


Joe Badman 

Hey, I’m Joe. Before joining Basis I worked in the public sector for a decade. I started my career witnessing first-hand the seriously complex challenges that face people who come into contact with public services on a daily basis. This has motivated me to pursue a career focused on solving those challenges.

I love using service design and agile methodologies to help people find innovative solutions to the complex challenges they face. I’m also a bit of a specialist in helping public services to trade and diversify their income streams to ensure they remain sustainable for the long term.

I've a strong belief in the importance of an effective Adult Social Care system, for me it's all about being part of a team that is helping to make peoples lives better and helping to solve the problems they face.

People centered solutions to service redesign is what excites and motivates me in my work. I thrive in a challenging environment, where I bring people with me on their change journey.
