Testimonials

 Taylor Made for the trade Ltd ‘Building companies, constructing profits 

After spending the last decade building successful businesses, we approached Stuart to help us embark on the next chapter of our business development - A coaching and mentoring business, based in Suffolk, that complimented our existing interests.

We initially thought of partnering with a franchise, however after speaking with Stuart, we decided the better option would be to use his expertise to help set up the new venture. 

Right from the initial contact Stuart not only formed an understanding of what we wanted to achieve, he also grasped exactly where we were with our existing businesses, and was able to formulate plans that fitted in perfectly with our goals. 

Stuart is extremely organised and punctual. He arrives early for every session and is always prepared. The sessions are always enjoyable, informative and thought provoking. 

Should we fall behind and get side tracked Stuart always bring us back to our plans and keep us accountable. 

The biggest testament to Stuart’s business acumen is that he is so confident in his own coaching abilities, and cares so much about developing others, that he agreed to coach another company with similar goals and aspirations to himself.

After a rapid rise and growth in our first 3 years of trading, I felt help was needed in understanding better our financial management, understanding where our strengths are and where our weaknesses lay. Stuart has enabled us to now identify down to the minute our business costs and given us a better understanding of financial planning.

When you start a company, you can do the basics, but it’s the level of detail required as you grow as a company that makes you realise help is needed to maintain profitability. This is where Stuart’s services come in very handy. I was recommended to Stuart by a friend who has used his services for the last three years, as I will continue to do so, and I have no hesitation in recommending his services again myself, as he has given us that added confidence that as we move forward we can be confident in understanding the infrastructure needed for growth and sustainability.
