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.

Staff have really stepped up and even surprised themselves…Fiona has helped us look at our business from a totally different perspective. She has helped us to develop new strategies and approaches and we are working more ‘on’ the business rather than being consumed by it. The staff training we have had has gone very well and the staff have really stepped up and even surprised themselves by what they have achieved. Fiona makes you accountable to yourself and has a fabulous way of working. I would definitely recommend her.
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 needed to change the way we did things and look at our business differently. We got Fiona on board and started developing new ideas and growth strategies. We have a number of staff and needed to work on establishing a more sales rather and service mindset. 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
