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.

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 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.

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.

Great ResultsFiona has assisted me in taking my business to the next level. Although we were doing all the right things we weren’t getting the results we wanted. Fiona helped us to do everything better. From planning, strategy to follow through, she has helped us achieve better results overall and the results are above expectations! I highly recommend you talk to Fiona if you are considering looking for a business coach who will give you value for money, and great results.

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.

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.

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 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!”
