It’s wonderful to have someone to ask advice of and get honest and constructive feedback from, and someone who keeps me focused on my goals and helps me move my business forward. I can wholeheartedly recommend talking to Simon Meadows if you’re overwhelmed by your business or if it isn’t going in the right direction or not fast enough. Everyone should have a Simon!Alison Leckenby Best of Retford
I have been working with Simon as my business coach for almost four years and in that time my company has gone from strength to strength. Today, Simon sat down with myself and my marketing manager and helped us formulate a plan for the next three years. His advice, common sense, management tool kit and the fact that he has "been there, done that" and succeeded himself make him an incredibly value resource for our business. On top of that he is a very nice guy and a pleasure to work with.Joanne Wilson Fill The Gap Marketing
He offers bespoke advice and looks at individuals ‘whole’ set of circumstancesand life expectations. He then helps us to harness our creativity and entrepreneurship and turn that into productivity.
No ‘hallelujahs’ or hype, just practical, sound, usable guidance. I can highly recommend Simon’s workshops and coaching.
