John helped us gain a view to our business that was never visible before. We now have the tools to make decisions based on facts and trends – I had no clue how many benefits were waiting to be discovered from the Lean process. And I’m so glad we started while a micro business, we now have a team of 10 and a core culture with continuous improvement and maximum efficiency woven into everything we do. There is no business that doesn’t need this!
Rosie Mansfield – Operations Manager
John is relentless in his search for continuous improvement, his approach to collecting and using data has instilled a new mindset within our team where now everyday tasks and issues are measured to support better decision making and corrective action. Any company or business that wants to grow should be close to its own data and John demonstrates how simply you can create your own reporting tools that work for you.
Richard Sloan – Managing Director

It is evident to us which businesses have previously worked with John… They understand the drivers for profitability in their business, are more analytical with their numbers and generally produce a better bottom line. I would have no hesitation in recommending John to other clients
