What Clients Say About Us

“In a non-judgemental and non-confrontational way, Chris got us to refocus on a lot of things we had been doing by rote. We were able to justify, improve and change the way we did things, for the better. The best thing Chris did was not present a 'know it all' attitude and he took the time to hear our story and our needs. There was a level of trust that we certainly have never developed with any non-director. I'd 10/10 recommend him to others!”

Need Help In Your Business?

What Is Business Coaching?

A business coach is there to help you set and reach your goals, they will also hold you accountable to the goals you set. They will help you develop, customise and then fully understand how business systems should be utilised within your business. A business coach like Chris Whelan should have many years experience owning and running businesses. A business coach can help grow, sustain or build and sell your business. They will also help you transition a family owned business from parents to children.

A business coach will help with processes covering all facets of your business, including human resources, financials, training, business plan, goal settings, sales tactics, marketing and reporting.

How Do You Know You Need A Coach?

If you can relate to any of the reasons listed below then there is a very good chance a business coach can help your business. 

  • Generating less cash than you’d like, despite being busy and having plenty of work.
  • Struggling to find or retain good staff.
  • You are looking for fast and effective improvements in your business.
  • Working all the time, with little or no time for family or personal interests.
  • You are good at the 'technical stuff', but struggle with the financial side of the business.
  • Your business has hit a hurdle and you need help getting over it.
  • You struggle to plan for the future.

You Want A Coach. What Next?

The first step is pretty simple - make a phone call and book a meeting. The first meeting is always free. 

Right from the very first phone call, we'll be learning about your business and how we can help you. The aim to make sure when we do meet up, we already know how we can help you. Our meeting then becomes more about confirming opportunities in your business, better understanding your return on investment, and making sure we can work together. Most people walk away from the initial meeting with years worth of strategies to help improve their business.

This process usually takes between 1 and 3 weeks and during it we are acutely aware of the value of your time and making sure it is a very high value meeting.
