Making the decision to start a new business is stressful. I should know as its my job to help people with stress!Criag Fearn
I decided early on that I wanted to engage help, but not just any help. I have always been of the opinion that when you stray into areas that are not your speciality you need an expert. I don’t think there is anything wrong with doing this as at the end of the day we cannot be experts in everything.
The problem was who to engage. Looking at my contacts on Linkedin I was astonished to find I had over 100 people listed as Business specialist, Startup specialist or something similar all promising a massive return on investment or a seamless service resulting in instant success.
After talking to a few people, I made a call to Jonathan and have to say that his instant grasp of the situation was refreshing. It was not a call where I was promised the Earth but rather one where I was asked what we could work together to achieve. It was at that point I decided this was the right decision for me.
The process from there was challenging, thought provoking and fun! I can honestly say I have never thought about my business or sector the way I do now. The chemistry between Adrienna and Jonathan was in equal parts disarmingly charming and lazer focused on achieving results.
The coaching approach employed throughout the experience I believe has given me the tools to better understand the nature of my new business as well as set growth goals and target specific markets.
This modern-day dynamic duo are clearly focused on increasing your understanding of your business enabling you to thrive going forward.
Jonathan and Adrienna provided me with some fantastic information in order to help me move forward with my business. Being a young business owner, there's a lot for me to learn. They helped me to understand what my next steps are to become a success. One hour with them has provided me with knowledge that I can use for a very long time. Highly recommended.Lewis Dutson
Starting a business is exciting, demanding and scary in equal measure. I had the good fortune to meet Jonathan during an event where he was generous with both his time and advice. As a start-up company, it was particularly encouraging to be able to express my anxieties with someone who really “got it.” He was very quickly able to get to the crux of my concerns and get me focussed on the key areas that will underpin my aspirations to grow the company. With Jonathan’s incisive evaluation, clear-headed advice and positive enthusiasm, I am stepping confidently in to the next phase of growth for the company. Call him now!Kevin Cowie

At the stage that we were introduced to Jonathan Keable, Business Coach, we had been running our business for over 9 years with a directly employed team of 12 operatives.
We were turning over around £500k per annum, whilst barely generating any net profit.
I was generally working all of the hours that god sends to make a success of the business, and whilst we were gaining a great reputation for what we were doing, there was very little reward.
Jonathan Keable has helped to transform our business in some of the following ways:-
Spending time planning and forecasting our future, setting realistic business targets and goals.
Delegating and empowering individuals to take responsibility for themselves, making our workforce far more independent.
Tracking and monitoring financial performance on a monthly basis to ensure we stay on the right track.
We have outgrown our home office and so have moved into a busy office in the centre of town. In the first year with Jonathan, we have doubled our turnover to £1 million and are half way through our latest financial year whilst being on track to increase our turnover to £1.5 million, whilst maintaining a healthy net profit. We have a highly valued and loyal workforce, passionate about what we do and delivering to the quality that has gained us our reputation.Phile Rivers, Unicorn Construction
We are now firmly in the driving seat of our business thanks to Jonathan Keable, who provided us with the knowledge and tools to make this happen.
