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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!”

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 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.
