I think yesterday went very well –in fact I think it is the best £70 we have spent for a while. The reason I say this is because you have given us some very practical pointers which we feel is relevant to our business –others have simply bamboozled us with high tech tools and tried to scare us into purchasing them Truusje Gamlin -Hollcameron
From the outset Tim's style, manner and pragmatic approach distinguished him from other consultants.For one, he was deeply knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the topic and we had a real sense of being supported by someone with a clear focus on achieving our objectives.Tim was happy to adopt our chosen preference for one to one engagement and desire to address the detail of the practical implications.He was able to distil complex matters into readily understandable actions.Our lasting impression of Tim's work with us is one of ease of communication, total commitment and a reassuring knowledge of the subject matter.
