We have been working with Greg for nearly 18 months and over that time we have learnt a lot about ourselves and our business and what the driving force is behind our motivation to succeed. It has allowed us to bounce ideas off a neutral party, as well as the confidence to make positive changes within our business that benefit both customers and staff.
