About Us

Before the idea emerged of offering to order central heating oil for a large customer base, I had been ordering heating oil for residents in my home village of Sproxton, near Melton Mowbray for over 4 years and we had been enjoying a healthy discount by ordering in bulk as a buying group. Now I would like to offer you the opportunity to save money by becoming a member of My Consortium and joining an ever growing group of like minded people and best of all being a member of My Consortium is free. So rather than buying direct from an oil distributor you can now keep more of your money in your pocket by buying through my oil group.

Please use the registration form and join today. By registering you are under no obligation to order but by doing so will speed up the ordering process in the future. Your details will be held securely.

Quality, customer service, reliability and environmentally friendly aspects of trading are all really important to me, that’s why I have chosen to partner with oil suppliers who share these same values. They have all guaranteed the quality of their product, their friendly and reliable service and their commitment to environmental issues. By having a number of suppliers I can ensure that I achieve really competitive heating oil prices each day. Also, in April 2016 I employed Donna to assist me with the day to day running of My Consortium.

Please get in touch for today’s oil price. You can contact Donna or myself by phoning 01476 861884 or 01258 789987 and also by emailing us via the contact page.

So you want to know about me? Whatever for! There’s not much to tell but here goes…

I grew up in Dorset. My parents are farmers in Tarrant Gunville and my mum runs a wonderful farm shop and tearoom there (well worth a visit). I moved to the East Midlands in 2000 and have enjoyed living in and getting to know the area ever since.

I live with my Husband, Tim. Tim is an extra special person (must be to put up with me) as well as my biggest supporter and best friend. Tim has an amazing daughter, Clarissa.

Before starting My Consortium I was employed for about 15 years as a senior Human Resources Manager working in various organisations in both the public and private business sectors and now, as well as running My Consortium, I run a company called HR Protocol providing HR and employment law advice and guidance to a range of small and medium sized employers.

Lisa Poole My Consortium - Heating Oil

I am passionate about what I do and really enjoy speaking with all my lovely oil buying customers. My drive is to save everyone money and give great customer service. So if you want a chat about how I can save you money then please get in touch.

When I’m not working on developing My Consortium and HR Protocol I try to get to the gym (but mostly fail) and enjoy long walks with our Jack Russell’s, Dorrit and Maude. I’m a bit of a ‘doing’ person and although not terribly creative enjoy many hobby crafts such as spinning wool and knitting, good things to do in front of the TV, and when I feel the need to bash something I take to my workshop and get immersed in silversmithing, making jewellery and small decorative bowls and the such like. Woodturning and pottery are on the list to have a go at as well.

Another passion of mine is food, I love trying out new recipes and entertaining for friends.
