Nikki Robinson – Holisticare

I started working with Gill Tiney at Steps to Success several months ago, hoping to grow my Physiotherapy practice. I thought I knew where I wanted to take my business but was unsure of how to get there.

With her help, support and guidance my business has steadily developed and expanded, to the point that now my initial goals seem very limited. She took time to understand my company and staff, which meant that every book, DVD or website she recommended has seemed to spur me on to greater things.

I leave our meetings feeling energised, buzzing and able to tackle anything.  She hasn’t told me what to do, but helped me to find the answers within myself.  Aims which previously felt over ambitious are now fast becoming reality and I can’t wait to see where we will go next.

I can highly recommend Gill’s business coaching services to anyone who owns their own business

Just wanted to say a big thank you for the Networking seminar this morning at Phisiobury House.  A very informative meeting with lots of simple, practical tips that can be easily implemented into almost any type of business.

The down to earth and un-stuffy approach made everyone feel welcome and put each and every one of us at ease.

Andy Lopata – Business Networking Strategist
“I attended one of Gill’s Business Forums. Networking groups need to think beyond the usual exchange of business cards, and Gill has set up a format to help members look at their business from a different perspective. When time to look at your business from an objective view is precious, such a group is invaluable.”

Christina Antochi – Team 2 Clean
“Great meeting Gill, thanks a lot for making me set 3 goals to do in March, really motivating, please push me to do them.”

Dan Sheehan
“I have attended the Business Forum in Bishops Stortford now for 1 year and would like to say a big thank you to Gill for helping me develop my business during this period of time.

“When I first attended I felt that there wasn’t an area of my business that didn’t need improving; sales, marketing, organisation, time management, I needed help everywhere.Over the past twelve months I have implemented many of the methods that Gill has advocated, and they have helped put me on the right track. I will continue to recommend Gill and the Business Forum to business owners old and new!”

Jonathan Jay – SuccessTrackOnline.com
“The concept of mentoring is invaluable to the ambitious business owner and I’m always behind anyone who encourages people to take their business to the next level.”

Pat Fox
“I have known Gill some 3 years, and have recently enrolled on The Business Forum. Gill is very inspirational, she delivers information succinctly, and in bit size chunks, so that the information can be retained AND actioned upon. Gill is very supportive, and believes in the whole person, not just the work persona. I can thoroughly recommend Gill to anyone looking for some assistance/clarity with their work life, and future direction.”

Steve Clarke - MD , Eureka Sales Solutions Ltd
“Gill asked me to speak recently at her Bishops Stortford Business Forum. To be honest, The group was unknown to me. I wasn’t sure of the caliber of people I was going to be speaking to. However, I was absolutely delighted to meet an incredibly enthusiastic group of business owners eager to grow and develop their operations. They’re doing this all thanks to the expert guidance of an exceptional coach – Gill Tiney. Gill keeps her members engaged and on task which is delivering outstanding results all round. I look forward to working with Gill and her folks again in future.”

Nicky Brown – Travel Counsellor
“I attended one of Gill’s Step to Success meeting at the beginning of February, after having a fairly slow January and I came out of the meeting with feeling positive and somehow that I did believe in myself and I was going to prove it. At the end of the session Gill asks you all to set a 3 personal challenge for the month ahead, one of mine being to increase my sales goal for the month – Think Positive!! and it worked, I ended up doubling my target and having the best ever month.

“I would highly recommend Gill’s session if you are wanting to increase your Business.”
