Through Darren's marketing knowledge, we were able to implement a proper marketing program that has now grown into a major part of our business through both regular email and direct mail marketing. We also introduced some incentive based schemes including discount cards to apprentice jockeys and discounted rates to trainers on race colours when purchasing for owners. Having someone who could use the ideas we had and help make them work was what the company needed

Your Needs

We offer consulting, coaching and mentoring services only to privately-owned small & medium businesses.

Our services are designed for owners and management teams that want to improve their business performance but who don't know the most effective strategies to achieve this.
We work with a wide variety of businesses in most industries. What they all have in common is that they are privately-owned small & medium businesses. While my clients possess expertise in their industry, the expertise they do NOT possess is how to truly maximise their profit, productivity, people and performance.
 
Do you face any of these challenges?

I'm working too many hours for too little reward. I'm stressed out
. It's not the way I dreamed my business would be like and it affects my personal life.

Our profits are not what they should be. That frustrates me because I know that higher profits increase the value of my business and ultimately create my wealth.

Low productivity is hurting my business. We seem to be working longer hours for less. Getting our people on the same page, heading in the same direction is a challenge.

Sometimes I feel I can hardly keep my head above water. My ability to focus clearly on problems in the business and actually listen to my people is hampered. Often I don't have the time or energy to lead and manage my team the way I want to.

We struggle to attract and retain talented and dedicated people. Sure we have some good people, but we're so busy each day that we never seem to hire, review or train our team properly. This in turn affects morale and team performance.

We always seem to do things the hard way. I've heard about the benefits of introducing systems and procedures, but we don't know how to and we're always too busy.

Despite our best intentions, we never really monitor or measure our performance. We talk about it but never follow it up. I hate to think how much we could improve right across the business by analysing our performance properly.
 

Who is most likely to be successful working with us?

You do what it takes to deliver quality products and services to your customers.
The products and services delivered are without exception your best effort. Striving for excellence and continuous improvement are built into your corporate culture and mission.

You adhere to the highest standards of honesty and integrity.
If you want to succeed by taking ethical shortcuts, we're not for you. If you want to play the business game at the highest level, we'd like to help you succeed.

Good enough doesn't cut it with you. You're passionate about being the very best in your field.

You are interested in making a contribution not just about the money but making a difference to those you work with.
Being remembered as just another supplier to your customers isn't on your agenda.

You realise you can't know everything but you are willing to get assistance and expand your knowledge and expertise.
You respect and listen to the views of others and surround yourself with quality individuals.

You like to work collaboratively and in partnership to discover the best possible action to take in relation to a problem or opportunity. The use of collective intelligence is generally far more successful than going it alone and you place a high value on interpersonal relationships.

You are willing to invest in yourself, your people and your business. Business improvement is a lifetime process and you are committed to this investment.
