Coaching / Mentoring Testimonial

I have known Jonathan for several years and have had a number of informal sessions with him regarding the direction of my business.

He is a very knowledgeable consultant and a genuinely lovely person who has a passion for helping people. Jonathan has imparted some really valuable advice in clear and simple terms and is particularly good at offering a new way of looking at their business and sales activities.

He feels like a very safe and reassuring pair of hands, especially during these times of uncertainty, when we're all worried about generating sales

Jonathan has been a great help to me recently.

He has been out on several field visits, given constructive criticism but more importantly given me useful tips, tatics and tools and how to implement them to add value to my customers and developing business opportunities with them.

Coaching / Mentoring Testimonial

I had a mentoring session with Jonathan that set the scene for a major, much-needed change for me in my working and business activities. He was honest, upfront, and said those things that I didn't want to hear.

He then checked in on me a month later, keeping me to account. I now have more time, the right focus and love what I do even more with results that reflect all of that. Thank you Jonathan.

Consultancy Testimonial

Jonathan has worked with my team for the past 20 months. The difference in approach that really worked for our division was Jonathan took the time to really understand the company, the product, the sector and the people really listening and taking it all in.

Jonathan came up with various solutions to meet our needs, budget, availability and experience and worked with me to decide on the appropriate approach to use. Jonathan's sales interventions are always very fluid, depending on the session and direction and responses on the day he ensures his agenda can flex and change.

The follow up approach for key individuals in the team really worked to help implement the tools and techniques discussed as part of the training. Jonathan is a real pleasure to work with and has really helped to develop the sales skills of all different colleagues, from direct sales staff to people in a supportive role too.

Results and improvements were clear to see! Thank you for all your guidance and support, and I look forward to working with you as we shape our next new ventures.

Coaching / Mentoring Testimonial

What immediately comes to mind when I think about Jonathan is how I feel more positive and motivated after spending time with him.

I have had the pleasure of being mentored by Jonathan and I can say that he is fine example of what a professional business leader should be. Although when necessary Jonathan will tell you “how it is” he always does so in a sensitive and constructive manner.

I am pleased to know Jonathan has a mentor and friend and would highly recommend him to any business leader who is keen to improve their business and leadership skills.
