“Karen has helped me greatly in understanding not only what my business costs to run, but also made me see that by structuring my fees in a different way I could recoup the business running costs and increase my monthly turnover. We looked at ways to save the business money and worked on a strategy to make a healthier profit. She made everything very understandable for me and I am looking forward to working with her again in the future.”
Helen Pritchard, Orchid Digital
“Karen has helped me focus on my marketing strategy, producing my E-newsletters, making the most out of my client database and generally updating my IT set up and introducing a new website for my photography, something that I have little time to do myself. Her advice is invaluable and I look forward to working with her in other areas of my business in the coming months.”
Tim Clarke, Country Pictures
“I met Karen through a mutual contact and immediately liked her. She is very experienced in business and also a genuinely nice person and easy to get on with. Karen has helped me focus my thoughts into some key areas of priority. She followed up each session with a summary of what we had discussed and actions for me. Her approach is practical and relevant to me and my business needs. Every business needs Karen!”
Kim Huggins, Kim Huggins Law
“Karen has been a fantastic help for me, both as a Mentor, acting as my sounding board for general advice, and in actually getting stuff done. She has been particularly useful in advising me how to structure my business for growth. The side projects, ideas and opportunities that have nagged me for years because I’ve never had the time or resourcefulness to attend to them myself, are now being addressed.”
Charlie Barnard, Arrange IT
“Karen is a personable, conscientious Lady who certainly knows how to move a Business forward. She has a knack of putting you at ease and she really takes time to understand exactly what your business needs are. She has helped my business grow and expand, all the while supporting and helping me and my team to adjust to the new strategies she was implementing.
I would not hesitate in recommending Karen and the impact she has had on the way I run my business has been phenomenal.”
Michelle Drury, Mint Salon
“Karen is one of those rare people who is diligent, efficient and incredibly diplomatic when all others have lost their heads. A real life-saver.”
Jason Wolfe-Daimpre, Architectural Designer
“I spent 3 productive years with Karen. In her position as Head of Executive Office she was instrumental in setting up the UK business with all the support services. She showed great drive and resourcefulness adaptaing her business skills to suit any scenario. Her adaptability and attention to detail are second to none, continuously producing high quality results whilst offering support to everyone.”
