What Clients Are Saying

Robert Palmer Isoclad & Securiclad Managing Director
“I have no hesitation in recommending Simon as a mentor. I attended a 12 week help to grow course with Northumbria university and was awarded 10 weeks of mentorship with Simon. It was a great experience and I was very impressed with Simon’s extensive knowledge in commercial areas. We keep in touch regularly and I know his counsel will always be on point.”

Robert Palmer, Managing Director, Isoclad & Securiclad

Hayley Edwards, Finanacial Controller, Macknade Foodhall
“Simon has mentored me through a really important time in our business and has given me a status quo approach that I hadn't recognised before. He has challenged my personal approach to certain situations with a view to my continuous personal development at the heart of these discussions.”

Hayley Edwards, Financial Controller, Macknade Food Hall

Paul Commander Toy Works Owner
"I found this meeting with Simon very useful and informative. We spent nearly 90 mins discussing the business and he suggested many points to try and drive more traffic to my business website and shop. It was worth every moment and I feel I have been given a better insight into moving forwards."
