Client Stories

Starting a new plumbing business I realized that I needed to cold call. I dreaded this and didn’t know where to start. Elaine introduced me to DiSC Sales Profiling to understand and profile my customers. We targeted Hairdressers, profiled them, identified keywords and developed a script, connection and delivery techniques.

I have used this cold calling method to great success and am now working with hairdressers and will apply it to other targeted customers to grow my business further.

Elaine helps you create the best way to speak to customers and put forward the best representation of your business. She has helped me tackle a part of my business I dreaded (cold calling) with a positive mindset and find those initial words to get the conversation started. I use these skills every day with customers. Thanks, Elaine for your help support and great new skills for my business.

Having recently been promoted in my role at a creative agency, I found I was frequently being asked to present my ideas and strategies to clients. This not only included pre-sales but throughout projects and to large groups (of up to 70, at this point) at each project’s end.

I have always been a nervous speaker and quickly recognised that I needed help to confidently present the ideas I was so passionate about. I was recommended to Elaine and undertook a half-day training session. The session allowed me to better convey my strategies, feel more confident in my delivery and to enter a nerve-jangling scenario with much more confidence. In particular, the one-on-one session allowed me to be aware of my particular weaknesses and turn them into positives.

On a weekly basis, I use the tools she provided to improve my presentation skills. Each time I present I improve. I am looking forward to a refresher in the near future and can’t thank her enough for what she has helped me achieve. It has added another bow to my professional career and allowed me to present my ideas in a clear, concise way that actively engages the audience.
