From a Business Owner of a Domestic Services company
Debbie Pepler is very personable and easy to talk to. She is a great resource and sounding board, helping me come up with business development ideas which had occurred to me before, but I didn’t really know where to go with them. She helped me to refine and improve many of the things I had already been doing. In a nutshell she has provided clarity.
The time I have spent with Debbie has seen my business not only survive the recent recession but also thrive, expanding three fold over a matter of months. Debbie’s coaching was definitely valuable to me and I am confident that my business development skills have improved (and will continue to improve) as a result of my time with her…
From a Director of a Joinery Restorer and Manufacturer
… We have found that using expertise from outside the company has had many benefits. It has brought new insight and a ‘critical friend’ to the processes, as well as technical expertise…She is direct but never confrontational in her manner and this makes it possible to quickly build a trusting relationship, and makes her a pleasure to work with.
From Directors of a Web Technology company
We have one meeting per month with Debbie, in which we typically talk through the previous month’s business challenges, referencing the goals that have been set for us. We find that these goals are extremely helpful in keeping us focused on tasks that we need to do that might otherwise be forgotten. Debbie is always extremely professional; she acts as a critical friend, enabling us to have a different perspective on our business. Whilst she challenges us to perform to the best of our ability, she is also realistic about what we can accomplish in our busy working lives. She keeps in touch between meetings and sends us information about networking events, as well as giving us useful introductions to other businesses. We place our trust in Debbie; she offers complete confidentiality. This is vital for us, as we can always be completely honest and open in our discussions and know that she will be the same. We feel that she really does go the extra mile for our company and would unreservedly recommend her as a business coach.
