Simple but effective ways to get new customersFiona helped me to stay on track with my business; put good systems in place, identified opportunities for growth, and implemented various strategies to increase the business. Fiona showed me what steps to take to improve and grow my business. She created a simple but effective way to help new customers with decision making which led to increased orders of product. She is absolutely passionate about what she does and helps business owners to get there.

No other business advisors/coaches come close to Fiona…I have been working with Fiona just over a year and she has helped me build my business to what it is today. I have had a 75% increase in turnover. I would highly recommend taking the steps to bring Fiona on board in your business. I have come across many business advisors/coaches but no one comes close to the service and hands on approach like Fiona.

Fiona gave us the simple steps and practical strategies to succeed in 2014…We contracted Fiona to help formulate a practical Business Plan for the next 12 months. She was generous with her time and expertise, quickly grasping the nature of our business and identifying the main issues needing attention. Fiona is highly organised and motivated, with a great sense of humour and a determination to see her clients succeed. We have enjoyed working with her and now have a clear step-by-step plan to implement, along with practical strategies to make it easy.

New Clients and Secured Stronger relationships…We hired Fiona from June 2012 through to December 2012 to upgrade our business systems and implement new strategies to increase our company profile and client base. A Business plan was developed that when followed enabled the admin side of the business to become more efficient. This in turn allowed us to focus more on creating and distributing new marketing material to new clients. As a result of the knowledge and expertise that Breakthough Business Solutions has shared, our business has secured new clients and solidified relationships with existing ones. We have experienced growth throughout our time working together and there is no doubt that we will continue to do so in the future.

Now we are more customer focused rather than product focusedWe have worked with Fiona to help increase our business and also for Staff Sales Training in our retail stores. We have good staff and have done training ourselves in the past, but it has been more product focused rather than customer focused. Fiona has helped us to work on our approach, add value to our customers, recommend the ‘right’ kind of product and change the way we focus on targets with staff. Her support and attending of staff meetings has been great and her advice invaluable.

Staff Training / Seminar“Fiona has been great to work with. When we met she listened well and grasped the nature of our business quickly, and then worked closely with us to plan an effective staff team day. Her communication was prompt and clear, and the programme she mapped out was spot on for what we wanted. The actual day was delivered professionally, with warmth and fun. Staff enjoyed themselves and learnt lots at the same time. I would highly recommend Fiona and we are looking at how we can work with her again.”

We now have a plan that will Ensure Success!“We have recently received some business planning and growth advice from Fiona Clark from BreakThrough Business Solutions. Fiona was amazing to work with. She was well organised, had some great strategic initiatives and helped us articulate a workable business plan. We have always tended to be reactive, rather than proactive and Fiona has helped us put together a business plan for the future which will ensure success. If you’re serious about planning and growing your business, I highly recommend that you talk to Fiona now!”

Seen a marked increase in turnover of more than 40%After working with Fiona for the past eight months I have seen a marked increase in the turnover of my business of more than 40%. Fiona has helped to develop clear strategies for marketing, and put in place a structured approach that will allow the business to continue to grow long after the association with her ends. The strategies suggested by Fiona were low cost (some around $50) and produced an impressive return on investment. Fiona’s influence has helped to give greater direction, focus and results to my business.

Fiona ‘GOT’ my business and what it was about’’Fiona was highly recommended to me by another business person who said to me “Fiona turned my business around”. So I met with Fiona and knew instantly that she “got my business and what it was about”. I was drawn to Fiona also by her expert knowledge and experience in sales and marketing. Fiona is thorough, detailed and very personable. She is a pleasure to work with.

Huge Growth Rate in my business…I started working with Fiona in October 2012 on my 2 Physiotherapy clinics in Christchurch and Auckland. Since working with her, she has helped me achieve a huge growth rate in terms of patient numbers, resulting in an increase in turnover. I love working with Fiona as she has reputable experience as well as strategies that really work. She is also innovative and motivating, which I believe has helped me to see the increase in my business that I wished. I highly recommend her to anyone as a business consultant!
