I first met Stuart through his role as a director of Tastes of Anglia at the AGM. Owing to our ambitious expansion plans and the commissioning of a new dedicated factory for the production of gluten free products we were actively looking for a business coach with industry experience to help guide us and work with us on a strategic level. Knowing about Stuart’s background in founding and developing a food manufacturing company
we knew he was the ideal candidate to fit our requirements. As a consequence we have had the pleasure of working through Stuart’s Growth Accelerator programme over the last 6 months, which has been an excellent introduction to working with Stuart and has certainly opened our eyes to the opportunities available to us and the importance of keeping our growth ambitions and manufacturing capabilities aligned. Stuart has been incredibly helpful and his industry knowledge has been invaluable. Although the Growth Accelerator programme had a structure Stuart was quite happy working on the ‘day-to-day’ issues that we experienced and just illustrated his level of business acumen.

 

We will definitely be re-employing Stuart’s 1-2-1 coaching services in early 2017 for the next stage of our growth and I would thoroughly recommend his services to any aspirational companies
