We wanted to learn more about management and leadership to become better leaders of our business, and Stuart has delivered an excellent coaching program, giving us much needed advice and is always a pleasure to work with he has fundamentally changed the way I think and run the business at its core, and highlighted mistakes I have made in the past to constructively build on the future. I can safely say working with Stuart has been one of the best things I have done in my professional career.James Whitfield - FIVE Create
I have been working with Stuart for over 2 years now, and have been through some very tough times. Although I am good at the sales side I am not so good at some of the other skills needed to run a business, Stuart has helped with many aspects including business planning and understanding the importance of cash flow forecasts. Without Stuart's help I would have seriously struggled with some of the decisions that we have had to make due to Covid-19. He is always at the end of the phone which I find handy as I tend to make snap decisions. Stuart makes me stop and think things through first before deciding on the way forward. I would not hesitate to recommend Stuart to any business owner looking to grow their business and make it more successful.
We work with Stuart through the ActionCLUB program. The results he has helped us achieve in just a short space of time have had a measurable impact on our bottom line, productivity and systems. I highly recommend Stuart to any business owner looking to make their business more profitable, efficient, and ultimately sellable.Mike Davis - Brilliant Social Media
We have worked with Stuart through his ActionCLUB coaching for over 6 months. We get excellent coaching skills and tools to increase the profitability of our company. Since working with Stuart we have implemented a number of strategies that have made a real, tangible and financial difference to our business. I would not hesitate to recommend Stuart to anyone wanting to grow their business and further their own personal development.Caroline Wherrit – Rework Office Furniture
The decision to work with ActionCOACH and do the ActionCLUB programme was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. The coaches are great to work with and give expert objective advice that seems to provide instant clarity. Three months on we have already recovered the course fee and then some, and would expect that even in the first year we will recover at least ten times that figure!David Grant – Allbright Commercial Window Cleaning
With Stuart’s help, we’re getting contracts agreed with our biggest customers that lock in this profit for years to come. I’m using this massive increase in profit to further invest in Dynamic’s marketing and operations so that we can double this figure again. We’re making a step change from a lifestyle business, to a seriously profitable enterprise that works, most importantly, without me. During all of this change, I’ve been busy setting personal as well as business goals. I now have a day out of the business each week and have more holidays than ever before.Andrew Edwards – Dynamic Despatch Ltd.
Stuart has supported our growth and development through unstinting support combined with structure and focus. Growth, especially over the pandemic, felt chaotic and urgent at times. Breaking issues down and working as a team to create cohesive and effective 90 days plans helped to bring control and completion to significant workloads.Astra Towning - Rethink Food
I attended Stuart's virtual GrowthCLUB which involved creating my goals for the next quarter and the actions I need to take so that I reach them. The half day was absolutely first class and a real eye opener for me. I got some great ideas together along with a plan and a schedule. I have already started on the steps I need to take for one of the personal goals I set, which is to build my mental and physical strength. I've now joined boxing classes and had two lessons so far! Next week I'll be taking steps towards two business goals I've set. I highly recommend this planning workshop to people who want something to drive and motivate themselves during this difficult year. It might sound far fetched but I really do feel that I am now all set to take on the world!Stephanie Collyer - Belluber Limited
“I wanted to let you know how beneficial I have found the coaching. I found the advice and support invaluable in making better sense of my business. The ActionCOACH tools you provided and the relevant documentation such as marketing materials have saved me lots of time.Sara Mogford - Managing Director, e-clinic Limited
I am now selling a business which I purchased 6 years ago for £15,000 for £300,000.
As a relatively new photography business, we turned to Stuart and ActionCOACH to help us develop our business, reach new clients and improve our systems and procedures.
Stuart has been great at holding us accountable for our actions. Before Stuart came to help us we were putting off the jobs we didn’t want to do, even though they were bound to generate new business for us. Stuart has advised us on the best way to go about approaching possible strategic alliances and, as a direct result of his advice, we have been successful in a number of areas.
We can honestly say that our business has gone from strength to strength since Stuart started coaching us and every week we are pushing the business forwards thanks to his input. We can definitely recommend him as a business coach!Aislinn Kelly – AM-Lifestyle Photography Co.
There are a lot of Business Coaches in the UK and there are quite a few good Business coaches in Yorkshire. Stuart is at the very top of his profession and I rate him in the top 3 Business Coaches I have dealt with. Having worked with him and his clients I know from first hand experience that he delivers on his promises, whether that is business growth, increased profits, less stress at work, or preparing businesses for sale. I have no hesitation in recommending Stuart to other business owners.Ian Smith – A1 Capital Ltd.
Stuart very kindly offered me a free hour of his time to run through my future plans after deciding I would close my franchise business. I found it very useful and helpful in ordering my thoughts moving forward and ensuring I could focus on what needs to be done.Simon Paget - The Property Chaps Ltd
