“Andy has been consulting to the business since March 2013, and one of the areas he has helped me refine is the recruitment process.  His help has been considerable in preparing for our UK Franchise Manager’s appointment, but also ensuring our recruitment practices and marketing materials are as good as they can be for the purpose they serve.  Marks appointment means Andy will now be focusing on helping the business in other areas such as ‘resales strategy’, and ‘multi unit ownership” for our franchise partners.  Andy therefore remains an important part of the team going forward.” – Tom Acland, MD Cafe2U

“Dear Andy,  I wanted to take a minute to write to you to thank you for your huge input into our business over the last three years. We carefully considered parting with shares of our company in the early days, and were given the advice ‘50% of something big is better than 100% of something small’, that advice has proved brilliant as we know that we would never have been able to take the company where we have been in the last 3 years on our own. You have been honest and straightforward to deal with all along, and we have been able to trust you to your word which has been brilliant, even when it has been of no benefit to you. We would be more than happy to recommend your services to anybody.  Cheers Andy!”  – Joel & Nikki Buckley, Founding Directors of Eco Art Cards Ltd
