It was great to have a sounding block and someone I trusted to question my thoughts and decisions. Also what worked great for me was to have someone make me accountable for my set deadlines!

We liked the structure and the detail. We have really looked in depth at the business as an “entity” for the long term and have put logical steps in place to move forwards. We can now develop a sustainable vision including staff structure and new account generation.
