Recently expanded my businessI have recently moved into a beautiful new Beauty Therapy Salon, and it is all since working with Fiona Clark from BreakThrough Business Solutions. She has given me the confidence to set goals, to have a vision and to believe in myself. The Business Planning process and strategies she developed were unbelievable, and my business has successfully expanded. I have a great business that I love coming to every day. I am so grateful for all the help and support I’ve had. Thank you!

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.

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!”

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.

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.

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.”

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.”
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.

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.
