Another fantastic seminar from Fiona at BreakThrough Business Solutions. I have been to many seminars but Fiona certainly stands out from the crowd. Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge and winning strategies , I look forward to implementing these and reaping the rewards!!!

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.

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.
Jeff Cook – Director – Jenco Electrical
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.

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.
Helen Slater – Strata Communications
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.”
Vicki Sykes – CEO – Friendship House
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.

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.
Sarah Dodson – The Prenzel Shop
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.
