Client Testimonials ...
Stewart is a wonderful support and as a business coach this is pivotal. His intelligence and professionalism is of the highest calibre and I would recommend him to anyone who is serious about engaging a savvy and effective business coach.
Thank you for your contribution over the last 12 months or so, we have both really appreciated your work. You have definitely seen the worst of us on more than one occasion, and you have managed to challenge us both in an appropriate manner. I have especially appreciated your flexibility in style, and ability to adapt according to what we needed most at a particular stage of the business.
Your program/coaching has helped us gain clarity about what needs to be done, maintain focus with vision and practical measurables for the entire team. You have helped us grow both turnover and net profit, and set up countless systems allowing for continued growth.
Thanks to Stewart I've been able to keep on track with business goals and keep motivated to push through difficult personal times. He's much more than just a business coach.
Stewart and SCS have been excellent at setting up a template and making sure that the deliverables are achieved as set out. The clarity in communication and setting realisable expectations is much appreciated.
Based on your support and implementation of better advertising and constant follow up of all jobs quoted, we are now in a position of growth, we have change our strategy to promote the services instead of building a brand.
The rewards are already showing and we are now in a position of growth, based on the trend I believe that I can continue to drive the growth of the business, it was good to be reassured by someone with good business experience.
After working with Stewart Clark from SCS Performance for about 4 months, I had already gained more value from my coaching sessions than I had from my previous coach over 18 months.
Stewart Clark from SCS Performance is our business coach - why? Because he actually helps us get results.
Since starting our business in 2003, my partner and I have used a number of avenues to build our business skills - experience, books, workshops, seminars, business owner groups and entrepreneur training. Prior to starting with Stewart in 2015, we knew WHAT we needed to do to improve our business - just didn’t have the structures in place to actually do it.
We improved our business revenue by 18% last financial year, and are on track to increase it by a further 21% this year.
How are we achieving this? Stewart’s particular talent is to identify the next actions to do to move the business along, then to actually help with the implementation and ensure they happen. In recent months, we have developed a brochure, redesigned our website, changed our CRM and Project Management software so we have objective management data, updated our operational software, increased the range of our product offering and started presenting to business groups on topics close to our heart, such as online marketing.
Do I recommend Stewart Clark as your business coach? Absolutely. He is approachable, practical and honest - and he improves your business results. Don’t wait - give him a call.
I have worked with Stewart Clark from SCS consulting for about 16 months, I must say that he is brilliant! If you are thinking of working with Stewart don't think just do it, his experience and professionalism is up there with the best, but the way he is able to strategise and get you to look at your business from a different point of view will make the difference between staying where you are at or taking your business to the next level. Thanks Stewart for all your help and support!
Stewart Clark was recommended by a mutual connection. From the moment Stewart entered my office I felt a sense of calmness come over me. I called Stewart because I am a business owner with no partner and I had many ideas for the business but no one to share ideas and strategies with.
Stewart and I have worked closely over the past four months and together have managed to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and professionalism of my commercial plumbing business. He has also been an incredible support in helping me to achieve my dream of establishing a new residential maintenance company. He assisted in everything from developing the vision and name for the company, through to assisting with website development, business cards, vehicle signage, marketing and sales strategies. Additionally, his financial advice and guidance around human resourcing for both my companies has always been sound and insightful. The strength of Stewarts service is his vastness of knowledge and the diversity of his skills. He is a great sounding board and would be an asset to any business owner.
There just aren’t enough stunning words to describe how much Stewart has helped me grow my business mentality. I worked with Stewart for more than a year refining, developing and creating my own business model. I am constantly amazed at how much one man knows about running a business and now have direction, determination and confidence to achieve what we have worked on together. If you are looking for a business angel then go no further, you have found your man.
I recently worked with Stewart to analyse my business structure so that I could develop strategies for improvement. We discussed marketing, sales strategies, growth, operational systems and the development of a business plan. Stewart was able to provide insight into my business and assisted me to recognise areas which were not sustainable and we discussed how to achieve growth from the areas which were. He provided me with a strategy to move forward as well as giving me additional tools and information which will assist me in moving forward. I would highly recommend Stewart to any business owner who wants to improve their business outcomes.
It took a while to decide that I needed help with my business. I knew I needed some guidance but was quite worried about who what when and where. I bit the bullet and decided that it was time for Stewart to help me, especially as he had a package for really small business like mine that allowed me to basically do the work myself but with his guidance. He has made such a difference in the short time we have worked together. The difference at this stage being how I see myself and my business. And as we work together I can feel growth happening and I look forward to the journey with his help. How does one man get to know so much about running a business? I can’t answer that but Stewart is that person. He truly is amazing.
Stewart at SCS Performance has been fantastic for our business, as I am a tradesman and have mainly worked on the tools and not having much experience running a business as such I realized I needed some help, with growth in our business it meant I had step back off the tools and start concentrating on the business itself, Since employing Stewart he has taught me everything from reporting on the numbers all the way through to sales and marketing his vast experience and knowledge have been an asset to myself and my company.
Thank you very much for your interesting and informative address to our club last night. It was obvious that the members were fascinated by what you had to say and enjoyed your presentation style.
Stewart was instrumental in providing professional guidance and advice when we decided to change our business direction several years ago. He worked with us in designing a whole new operational process, reporting templates and risk controls for the business. He also brought our business into the new age of social media which had an immediate effect of increased enquiries and increased client base.
This has meant that we are not only providing a better of level of service to our customers, but we are more efficient in delivering our reporting without compromising the content.
The greater efficiency in delivering reporting has increased the company’s profit margin. For some years now Stewart has continued to review the business with us and provide strategies to ensure our business remains efficient and to provide us more time outside the business.
I would highly recommend Stewart to anybody looking to maximise their business potential.
We knew that we had a good practice, but it was more controlling us rather than the other way around. Stewart came in and read our business like a book – showing us a number of areas for improvement – both for financial and personal (time) gain. With a detailed plan of what to concentrate on, we have been able to ascertain a clear, precise path to positive change in our business' growth
