“70% of all insolvencies in the UK occur in the construction and trades industries regardless of the economic climate” – Office for National Statistics
But Build and Grow – a division of successful coaching company Evolve and Grow – has been specially developed to address this by working with Trades to take their businesses to the next level and improve their work life balance.
Alison Warner of Evolve and Grow said: “We’ve been working successfully with businesses across a range of sectors for many years but noticed there are some challenges that seem to be particularly relevant to Trades. Such as how to effectively get off the tools and how to cope with excessive demand without compromising customer service. So we set up a new service especially for Trades businesses”
I was experiencing a high demand for my services but didn’t have the systems in place to deal with that. This meant I was losing out on potential business, becoming very stressed and had no visibility of what my company was earning and where our biggest expenses lay. The systems that were put in place on Evolve and Grow’s 121 program helped me to improve my relationships with my clients and also the quality of service my guys provide due to the improved mentoring and training. Most importantly I now have complete visibility of the company finances and how they can be improved. I would highly recommend Alison to any company providing trade services to increase organisation, customer satisfaction, turnover and most importantly profit.
"Meeting Alison Warner from Evolve and Grow made me realise how much I needed to know about my own business, when there were no structures in place. We opted for a year’s programme, which made me realise how to run a business properly with systems and processes in place. After my first year we had tripled our turnover enabling us to invest more in the infrastructure of the business to set us up for further success. I highly recommend Evolve and Grow to any other business within the trade sector."
“Before I was introduced to Alison of Evolve and Grow, we were struggling with paying bills. Supplier accounts were regularly being put on stop and I was seriously worried about keeping my staff. Six months later I have a good understanding of what my business is doing and what it will be doing in the future. December is usually a time when we have a lot of expenditure and it has been a struggle to pay everything. But this year we had money put aside for our bills, we were growing and for the first time we could look forward to Xmas!”
