“I was recommended to look at getting a mentor by another business that I was working with at the time and I was a little sceptical at the time but saw the potential benefit.
“After searching around for a little while I came across Jim and made an enquiry which led to an initial discussion on myself and the business. It was clear immediately that Jim had a wealth of experience and understood the problems we were going through and how we may look at solving things.”
“I think most entrepreneurs think they know best or will work it out along the way and whilst that did work to a certain point there becomes a time where being an entrepreneur becomes more about getting your people to deliver what you have created so far and building on it rather than it being because you as an individual are good at what you do otherwise things just stagnate. This was the point I was at and needed some input on it. ”
“In 9 months of working together so far, Jim's input has me seeing how we operate our senior leadership team in a new light and ultimately that filters down throughout the whole company. Not only are we now starting to see more structure but also more employee engagement and ultimately better customer service and a better business.”
“Jim has become an integral part of our business over the last 9 months and shaping our future and I look forward to continuing that long into the future.”
"Very positive rewarding experience having received business mentoring from Jim. I am extremely grateful for his vast experience and knowledge. I felt listened to and supported when discussing any issues I was struggling with. One thing I remember Jim saying initially was "you can be very good at what you do, but learning to run a business is very different" which is so true and the reason why I recommend his services to others is because I have learnt so much and can now start putting this into practice."
"As a sole director of a small start-up during such a turbulent year, Jim Gorrie became both business mentor and counsellor. He grasped the complexities of my business quickly, with its different markets and revenue streams, and made me step back from the day-to-day to focus on the business - my vision for it and the challenges to overcome to move forward. I didn't have a finished business plan, and I still haven't. I don't think I'd look at it let alone follow it. Instead Jim gave me the necessary tools to complete a shorter, more useful Vision Summary. The input was probably as much but the output required less paper and it is a core document for me and serves as a three-year road map. Jim also helped me navigate tricky situations with suppliers. A year on, I've made the transition from fledgling entrepreneur to business director, assessing risk, focused on preparedness for the challenges ahead and 'lighting fires under opportunities'. I'd recommend Jim to other business owners. He has made a big difference to me and my business, and he's also a very nice bloke! Thanks, Jim."
"Jim gave an in depth analysis about my business plan, branding and marketing. He strategically took me through my negatives and positives that intrinsically and extrinsically have been affecting my business. Jim focuses on what needs to be covered in a session rather than trying to just fill a space of time. He’s also Fantastic with numbers and made me see how how big or small my profits margins were which is excellent of your not so good at number crunching. He was also extremely patient with me and very polite courteous and I felt that he wanted me to succeed and see that change within me and the business. I highly recommend Jim for mentoring for any start up or any business that’s struggling right now with the pandemic getting back up and started to relaunch and rebrand. Thank you For all your help and encouragement Jim. I really appreciate it."
