BraunAbility has used the SWGS team for more than four years. During this time our business ownership has changed and the challenges we are facing have become more complex.
We have engaged SWGS for coaching, training and facilitation on a wide range of business matters, Their insights and support have been invaluable throughout our changing ownership, our integration into a global business and as we faced up to the difficulties that COVID and Brexit have presented.
The SWGS team has been great to work with and have a clear passion for our business and more importantly for our people. We look forward continuing to work with them. Highly recommended as trusted expert business support professionals.
Phil took time to really understand my business, my clients and objectives. He was able to tailor his guidance and gave me some brilliant yet practical tips to keep me on track with my virtual services. I really appreciated the time I spent with Phil, as it was incredibly valuable, and it was also great to have a different perspective. I feel more confident moving forward, having had Phil’s guidance of how to increase my proactive online relationships, his ideas of how to monetise and improve my services. Thank you so much Phil, you have been very motivating and just what I needed in what has been a challenging time of late.
I met Kath during lockdown through a mutual colleague. She was recommended to me as someone who could help me reconfigure the business and help me with the IT transition I would need to make. She was amazing. As part of this process she helped me connect to a whole new business support process, she introduced me to some key people who have since helped me deliver some training online and overseen some work before publication. What a great positive person too and absolute super connector and solid business woman. Thank you Katharine so much
I now have much more clarity over the business model for my project and a firm understanding of the difference between my customers and users.
