A few words from my previous clients

See some new business strategies I have implemented for some previous clients

“Thank you for the 2 presentations. I don’t often say this; in fact don’t think I have ever said this: Trevor shared one of the most inspirational presentations I have had the good fortune to attend. Hit all the hurdles running with enthusiasm. Uncomplicated just the way I like it. This morning sales calls have a fresh energy”

 

Delegate - Drum Network Event

“Trevor has a rare and valuable combination of talents – he has a thorough understanding of design and the design sector combined with a depth of knowledge and experience of business development that enables him to understand the true value that design can bring to business competitiveness. He’s also a great guy to work with which makes me very pleased to recommend him.”

Kate Beresford - Design Leicestershire

“It makes a difference to our turnover having you on board and you are welcome to join in when we go on the lash at Crimbo.”

Susanne Bell - Ledgard Jepson

“We contracted Trevor to help us create our new business strategy for 2011. We have relied pretty successfully on repeat business and word of mouth within one particular sector, which is now in decline and where business has been slowing down.

Trevor’s knowledge and experience of creating new business plans has been a great help. He worked closely with us to understand our business and our proposition which has led to a robust strategy for the future. He facilitates the thinking, asking pertinent, relevant questions and he helps to build confidence, which is always much needed before a new business drive.”

Steven Taylor - Raw Design Studio Ltd

“Trevor’s practical and tried and tested advice has been a valuable input to our evolving thinking on how we want to target and attract new opportunities. His insights come from a place of having been there and done that – being able to explore ideas, insights and opportunities with someone that talks the same language and ‘gets’ the challenges and opportunities that come with managing a successful creative business is why his ‘fresh pair of eyes’ approach works.”

Michelle Stocks - Jupiter Design

“Trevor has helped us to devise the definitive marketing plan for our business and has produced a twelve-month rolling calendar to reinvigorate and support our new business drive. His knowledge of the design industry and hands-on approach has identified new relevant markets for us and how best we can exploit opportunities to generate new business from these markets.

Since working with Trevor to implement our marketing strategy we have successfully entered a new market sector, raised our profile and enhanced our positioning with all our key audiences. I think it’s fair to say that Trevor’s involvement with our agency has also motivated and excited us.”

Marc Brown - Cygnus Associates

“People like Trevor are as rare as the proverbial RHS. A valuable and trusted advisor to Katapult, Trevor has extensive experience working in the industry and is a top drawer operator when it comes to business development. As such, he understands our challenges and has given us clear direction, lots of practical ideas that we can implement easily and has given us the confidence to get on with executing our plans once they are hatched.”

Neil Perrot - Katapult

“As a company that has successfully relied on word-of-mouth for over 15 years, we wanted a more coherent way to maximise our ability to find new clients. Engaging Trevor gave us much needed focus and ensured that the project stayed at the top of the pile.

As a small company, Trevor provided expertise and knowledge and was a catalyst for preparing a coherent marketing calendar and a 3 year plan. His knowledge and enthusiasm motivated us to produce literature, brochures and new advertising copy; he also played a key role in approaching new contacts and put us in front of prospective clients.”

Andrew French - Creed Design

“We worked with Trevor for several months. He has given our business development both structure and direction. He has a wealth of experience that he puts to good use, bringing a pro-active approach to his proposals and suggestions.”

Andrew Gray - Gray's Creative Communications

“After sitting down and working with Trevor regards new business opportunities and planning, our success rate increased dramatically. I would recommend working with Trevor if you’re serious about improving your business.”

Shaun Cole, Ideafuel

“Trevor helped The Media Group to put stronger business development processes in place. He understood the challenges and gave us lots of ideas and practical support. He’s helped us to identify the right target sectors and given our team the confidence and tools to win new business.”

Joe Birkedale - Catalyst

“Trevor helped The Media Group to put stronger business development processes in place. He understood the challenges and gave us lots of ideas and practical support. He’s helped us to identify the right target sectors and given our team the confidence and tools to win new business.”

Stephen Hillier - The Media Group

“I first discovered Trevor when he was a guest speaker at an industry event. I felt compelled to contact him and I’m glad I did. We’ve worked with Trevor for around two years, during which time he’s helped us to build realistic, industry specific new business strategies.

Trevor asks the difficult questions we all avoid and has helped us to look at our business processes, changing them for the better. Trevor has in depth experience of the industry and a wealth of knowledge to share with agencies like ours.”

James Hack - DX Digital

“Working with Trevor has been a great experience from start to finish. Full of enthusiasm, he delivered not only his extensive business development knowledge and techniques (which really do work), but he also managed to inspire and motivate us to put into play a measured and strategic business development programme.

Like many things, Business Development takes time, effort and a strategy and Trevor helped us lay the foundations for real and significant growth on both a short and long-term basis. I’d happily recommend his services to any creative agency or team.”
