On – the – mark Business PlanningFiona has been providing me with on-the-mark advice around my business development for the coming year. It’s her determination to see her clients succeed that makes Fiona stand out. Not for her ‘advise . . . and walk away.’ Fiona follows up, provides the structure and advice founded in experience to develop a strong business plan that works. Of course, it’s over to her clients to actually do the doing – and Fiona’s got the systems at her fingertips and the ability to whip-crack (nicely) so we develop that self-discipline to carry out the required actions. Value? Yes. Great to deal with? Yes. Results? Yes – if you follow Fiona’s advice.

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.

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.

Opened my eyes to different strategiesToday’s economic situation is tough for a lot of us, so it made sense to me to bring in outside expertise to help me increase the practice. Fiona has shown me simple, cost effective ways to increase my business and get results. We have achieved an awful lot since working together and she has opened my eyes to using different strategies which has had a great impact. I would recommend talking to Fiona who really knows what she is talking about.”

Our Bank Manager wanted to know how we got these results!!
In the past couple of years, we have had changes in ACC funding which affected our business and resulted in a large decline in turnover. We got Fiona on board and started developing new ideas and growth strategies. Our turnover increased to the point our Bank Manager noticed the results and wanted to know how we were increasing business! And Fiona has also given us a new skill set we didn’t have before, which adds strength to our business.

I’m excited again about my businessAs a small business owner Fiona gave me the confidence to think about my business differently. I have been in the Travel Industry nearly 20 years, and after working with Fiona I have increased the leads I am getting and turning those leads into actual sales. She has helped me identify new opportunities, put good structures and processes in place, and take control of my business which has had a huge impact. She has enabled me to get excited again about my business and working with her is the best thing I could have done.”
We have increased turnover by 30-40% in 3 months!!!Fiona was recommended to me by a colleague of mine, and I am very pleased I made contact with her. She has helped me come up with new strategies and a new way of thinking to help increase my business. Now instead of patchy bookings, the clinic has solid bookings in advance and turnover has increased 30 – 40% in 3 months.

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.

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!”

We’re set up for the future and expanding even further…When deciding to grow our firm, we needed to know how to go about it in a sustainable way. During the time we worked with Fiona we developed a Business Plan, Action Plan, created marketing material, identified who to target our business towards and achieved great results. Better systems helped us to set aside time to focus on the running of the business – something we had previously struggled to do. We have now set our business up for the future and are looking at expanding further in the next 12 months, comfortable in the knowledge that we have the skills and procedures in place to do so.
