We regard Derek as part of the family. We really feel he cares about us and our business, it’s extremely comforting to know we have an experienced mentor who we can trust and know that he’s on our side.
Jemma Proctor and Phil Gordon – Managing Directors of One Limited

Derek is a thoroughly approachable consultant armed with practical solutions and tools for giving the small business owner more control over the day to day running of their business. After just one meeting I have grown in confidence and walked away armed with a selection of tools to maximise my control in the business. I once more can see the wood for the trees!

I found our meeting very useful and it’s given me a lot to think about for my next step in business. I came away feeling inspired and enthused.
