"In the first 6 months of this year, I exceeded my whole year's settlement versus the last year. In the past 3 months, my business growth has equated to 70%, after doing the Accelerate Program and implementing my learnings."
"Since participating in the Accelerate program, we have developed clarity around our direction, developed a road map for the next 5 years, gained clarity around our marketing and messaging, developed position descriptions, engaged an after care business and done a deep dive into the business to understand the numbers, all stemming from the work we did on customer charter."
"Doing the Accelerate program gave me more confidence, while Jane helped me overcome those personal barriers, Michael stepped in to help me understand the business plans and road map. I went from a sole business working on my own, to taking on 2 staff members thanks to the Accelerate program. "
