"I am new to the world of running my own business. Having worked in the corporate world for the last 20 years, I needed someone to help me make good decisions at the start of my journey. The purpose of this testimonial is to say that Alison is most definitely that person. Since I started my business, essentially I was a busy fool. What Alison has done is help me understand the process I follow within my company so that I can now focus on the task in hand, without trying to do everything at once. This has enabled me to spend more time on key aspects of my company, such as generating new sales and looking at my costs. Additionally, Alison has helped me define and extend my product range, so now I have a suitable product available for the different types of business I meet. In the short period of time that we have worked together, I have already recouped my investment and I look forward to a long term relationship with Evolve and Grow. On top of all this, Alison is a lovely lady who I really enjoy spending time with. When you are opening your soul to someone, it is important that you trust them for it to be effective. As soon as I met Alison, I knew that she would make a difference to my businesses, and I was not wrong."
"I was referred to Alison Warner of Evolve and Grow Coaching by Gail Gulvin. I wasn’t sure what to expect form business coaching but have found a brilliant way of keeping focused on growing by business by implementing the strategies that Alison teaches. My work is very specialised but that does not seem to phase Alison, she seems to understand immediately what I am trying to achieve and addresses the ideas accordingly. My sessions with Alison are stimulating and enjoyable and I always leave feeling motivated and buzzing with ideas. I can’t recommend Alison highly enough!"
"Although Alison has other businesses in the mentor group that I have been part of for the last year, she always takes the time to stay current and focused on the specifics of what is happening in my life and practice. She not only gives me strategies for changing old habits, but constructively challenges my preconceptions so that I see the value and productiveness of new approaches to running Printingprogress, client relations and marketing. Alison is just as open to change as she expects me to be, and if certain strategies do not fit my circumstances or personal strengths, she works with me to develop ones that do fit. Alison stays in my corner, but never tells me only what I want to hear and I really value her insight and personal attention. It goes without saying that I would recommend Alison and I can’t think of one professional that doesn’t need a coach."
"I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you and praise the LinkedIn workshop I attended in April. The full turnout not only meant that I met some wonderful people, but showed your professionalism in running this highly recommended workshop without any delays, making sur you covered everything AND answering the deluge of questions from delegates along the way. The wonderful thing about this workshop is that it’s completely hands on and that is allowed me to make changes to my profile there and then. The best part is that within a week, my profile ranking had shop up from an average of 160th to a respectable 40th, which clearly shows that more people are viewing my profile than ever before. I have no hesitation in recommending anyone who hasn’t been on this workshop to book themselves in on the next one!"
"Anybody who is reading this testimonial is interested in developing and growing their business. I have been seeing Alison for the past year and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Why I chose Alison over other business coaches was due to her impressive training and experience. Over the years she has been in great demand for her coaching by big companies such as Pizza Express as well as having profound positive influences on numerous small companies. She travels the world to attend the right courses. She is both passionate and knowledgeable about the work she does. She also helps people in deprived countries to learn and develop their own business skills free of charge. She is easy to talk to and is genuinely interested in helping you develop. She listens and makes sure she understands your business needs. Her investment in her training means she always has more to offer. She is organised, setting targets and goals to create a reality out of your vision. If after all I have said you are not contacting Alison question yourself as to your commercial motivation, do you really want to grow and develop your business? I do and have with Alison. A BIG THANK YOU."
"I recently attended a course run by Alison Warner from Evolve and Grow Coaching on LinkedIn. Alison’s course was very interactive and practical rather that purely theory, which I think made us learn more as we went through the day. She is very thorough when explaining the basics and will helpfully explain until you grasp the concept. Tips and tricks were picked up on the day and a plan on how and why to use LinkedIn. Great mix of attendees on the day who all ran their own businesses."
“We work by taking the tried and trusted processes used by large, successful corporations and implementing them in a practical way that suits small-to-medium-sized Trade businesses. Our solutions must deliver financial return for our clients for us to feel satisfied that we’ve achieved our aim.”
