Meet Sam Kinch

Founder of Compliance Resource and Quality Inspired Consultancy


Sam Kinch, an ISO 9001 Lead Auditor, Quality Assurance Consultant and Trainer has over 14 years experience at every link in the product lifecycle and ISO auditing.

Having worked for both manufacturers and large retailers, Sam knew from experience how divisive the implementation of Quality Standards can be.  Working with various test labs and factories in different regions, Sam had also witnessed the full spectrum of Quality Management approaches: from fire-fighting to strict controls, and everything in between.

Sam’s consultancy was established as a way of addressing the gulf between market expectations and the ability of SME’s to meet them. 

Building on her experience with SME producers, corporate retailers, Asia manufacturers and Test laboratories; Sam advocates a collaborative approach.  She encourages a proactive stance – moving mindsets from being reactive, to proactive.

Sam’s believe’s that no business, whatever their size, shouldn’t have to sacrifice what makes them unique in the interests of making or selling better products or services.  And while she stands firmly by the letter and law of international standards, Sam’s balance of professionalism and personality have allowed her clients to make Quality work for them.
