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.”
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

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 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.”
