You have probably been referred to me from the Buzz Magazine. Well before you spend time reading the whole of this page, I would like to ask you one simple question:
First of all you need to find the right business coach to help you, and I would recommend that you must have trust and confidence in the business coach you choose. How would you do that? Well it is obviously a good idea to meet face to face. You need to ask good questions. For example: Does he have good testimonials from previous clients? What results has he achieved to-date? Does he inspire confidence and reassurance?
You also need to see if your new business coach is willing to take at least a part of his fees based on results. If he is not then be cautious.
I want to share two further cautions with you:
Here are two examples of local successes in the last 4 years [2012-2015].
CASE STUDY 1: I worked with one well-established local company for 22 months – ending May 2014. When I started I took a snap shot of where they were at financially at that time and again at the end of my contract. In a nutshell, when I left the company was in great shape: customer retention had gone through the roof, an experienced management team had been put in place and profits had increased by over 700% – yes over 700%!
CASE STUDY 2: A second company expanded dramatically over a period of 2-3 years; the owner has grown personally and the company is now looking to expand into different but related markets. Profits increased by well over 500% and this financial year the profits will increase 285%. This company has huge potential and could well become the next Camp Hopson of Newbury.
“Everyone responded well to you. Well who wouldn’t? You had a good team spirit and were able to interact and motivate the associates well. You had a very good impact on my business and were a positive influence on all those around you.”
– Mrs Sue Tranter, Founding Director of West Country & Wales Wholesale
“Since Anthony’s arrival in Prestige Network, he has always been the one ‘to make a difference’.

– Mr John D Dickens, Business & Management Consultant
“I have known Anthony for over 4 years firstly as a customer and secondly as a consultant to the business… Anthony always acted with integrity and his insights were both helpful and thought provoking. His positive approach to both life and business is indeed refreshing. With Anthony, what you see is what you get. ”
– Mr Roddy MacDonald, Managing Director of Water for Health
“Thank you Anthony. I really cannot thank you enough for today [24 Nov 2012] at the opening of my new showroom. I’m so pleased and looking forward to the upcoming weeks. You are brilliant and bring out the best in me.”
– Luke Johnson, CEO of Luke Johnson Flooring
