After receiving your invitation to your free seminar... It was a great insight, time well spent... It was clear, concise and very well presented. I will certainly be advocating you, your coaching skills and business knowledge to others and will look towards to engaging you in my business in the near future.

Ians support and guidance has been a key factor in getting Roof Cleaning Systems business off the ground. His challenge and support to our marketing approach has paid dividends. Our innovative asbestos roof cleaning and coating process is now well proven and our pipeline is looking very good for the coming year.

I would say that your USP is your expertise combined with your easy but authoritative manner. This combination means that you are able to share and explain complex ideas with small business owners that they may be unfamiliar with in a non-intimidating and easily accessible way whilst backing it up with the authority to actually motivate and compel one to move the business forward!
