I worked with Chris when I decided to set up my business, he helped me to make my dream a reality, we got a methodical plan together and over the months he helped me make a smooth transition from being employed to running my own business. Chris is a very calming influence when you feel like there is a lot of pressure and he works through it with you at your pace.

I have been a consultant for 11 years and very rarely recommend people into my clients as I feel that they may not meet my own high expectations, but I recommended Chris into one of my clients and she has had nothing but praise for him and she was at a real low point in her business…

Chris has the ability to have challenging conversations (at times very challenging) but critically, off the back of building trust between both parties, candour and sharing a desire to work for positive outcomes as an outcome of the relationship. Although emotionally demanding at times, it has helped that based on establishing trust, we can be very direct, open and overcome difficult subject matter and communication. This is key in the quest for both personal and professional development as an individual and for the business I lead. Our engagement has seen Chris help us create an environment where people of different ages, abilities and experience can begin to work together with a clearer methodology, process and measured outcomes…

Having spent many years of my life building business that I had ownership in, I had found myself in a large corporate role and had a burning desire to get back into a more entrepreneurial lifestyle. As a frustrated entrepreneur stuck in a corporate role, I needed someone who had the expertise and right approach to help me re-ignite the passion and spark I had for launching my own venture, whilst managing the challenges of my high-pressure role at the time.

Chris has this. His personal approach, experience of the entrepreneurial world but most importantly his agile and flexible approach was a good fit for me. He’s also passionate and focussed, and really invested his energy into me and my business…

In the first three months working with Chris the way I manage my business has completely changed for the better. I think the most important result has been to learn to work ON my business and to gain focus on where I want to get to.

The journey so far has really made me realise that not only can I have an aim to grow but also that I can achieve it.

 I have gained knowledge, wisdom and focus.

  I liken you to a fellow Director of my company and having you on board has enabled me to really structure my Digital Agency and also better support associated partnerships.

Investment of any form of business development is something that I don’t take lightly. I must say that the journey we are going on is rewarding…

VeloSkin is my first venture into creating a new brand product line and running my own business.  Chris became involved in the business shortly after launching and immediately wanted to understand all aspects, including me, why the business started, how it was being operated and what plans the business had both short and longer term.  In a very short space of time, Chris focused how I operated, enabling me to get tasks done. He explained the importance of recognising and prioritising key goals that would deliver growth and drive the business forward…

Chris has been a constant support for me both in the business and personally, launching the business has been both rewarding and challenging due to a number of reasons and Chris has always been there to support me with experience and practical guidance…
