Working with Ray has been and is still an absolute pleasure.

I own a small building company and was typically trudging through each job just making ends meet at best. My thought process was that whilst I have small children, this was the best way that I can keep to my own schedule and be able to be there for my family…And it was working….. Unfortunately it wasn’t working for the company, the bank accounts or my stress levels.

I can easily run a building site but had very little idea on how to actually run a business.

I figured that if I want to be successful, I could go back to school for 5 years to get a degree or get professional help from a business man to put me on track, Ray has simply put me on the right track using simple strategies and it turns out that I am working less, making more money, way less stressed and scheduling my family and myself before work.

I am excited again for the future and the way that my life and career are headed and I truly believe that Ray has been the total instigator.

It has been a privilege to work with Ray Strongman as our Business Coach over the last 18 months. His practical and well-thought advice has been critical to our growth during this time. He made us accountable for our figures, and steered us in the right direction for continued success. We had a 22% increase in turnover during the last financial year.

Ray’s insight into personality types has been particularly fascinating, and hugely valuable in training our staff. He educated us in a relaxed way, showing us the importance of personal and career goals. Since working with Ray, I have changed the way that I think about so any things. Now we are not worker harder, just smarter.

I have no hesitation in recommending Ray for your business if you would like to take it to the next level. Working with Ray was enlightening, fun and profitable!

Ray Strongman has been a value added experience for our company.

I was most impressed with his flexibility and fact based approach.  Right from the start, Ray was able to give me the tools to delegate, allowing me to handle the core responsibilities related to my job.  In no time at all Ray was up to speed on the challenges and particulars of our industry, had a firm grasp on the culture we operate in and was able to articulate our company’s position with fluency.

I was the classic example of the technician pushing the boundaries of my work ethic and then also attempting to manage staff, oversee the financials, produce effective marketing and attempt to live a life. Ray has helped me with so many aspects but the two that will always stick with me are learning to manage your time to focus on the truly important things (and they may not be what you think they are) and learning how to create organised structure.

Ray Strongman our Business Coach has been part of our team for the past year now and have been instrumental in adjusting my priorities not only in my work environment but also in life. This positive effect has now flowed onto my staff and as a result the Podiatry Clinics we operate are now productive, positive and enjoyable environments to work in.

I was the classic example of the technician pushing the boundaries of my work ethic and then also attempting to manage staff, oversee the financials, produce effective marketing and attempt to live a life. Ray has helped me with so many aspects but the two that will always stick with me are learning to manage your time to focus on the truly important things (and they may not be what you think they are) and learning how to create organised structure.

Make no mistake this was not an easy task but without Ray’s assistance it would have been impossible. At present we have just finished the 3rd quarter of the year and at our Hastings clinic alone we have taken in a 100% increase in total billings and increased our new patient numbers by 150%.

Ray has helped me build a foundation that I can launch new and exciting ideas from that would have otherwise seemed out of reach. I have recommended Ray to many business associates that I have and would not hesitate to do so again. If anyone would like to discuss this in more detail they can contact my clinic on 8790 3755 and I will be more than happy to speak further.

Kind regards

Dear Ray

I thought it might be a good idea to reflect on our achievements for the last eight months.

1) Money Mastery, Average Sales, Break Evens etc.

2) Test and Measure our cost price on all our products.

3) Clarity about where our business is heading and what techniques are required to grow the Business e.g. Spice Night.

4) Production of our Business Video.

5) Staff Training Manual.

6) Staff Recruitment Procedure.

7) Putting systems in place in the various departments.

8) Using technology to speed up our systems.

9) Through Team Work, achieving more.

Since we put the above in place we are surprised that by some miracle the business has grown 30% in the past 12 months.

“Who said you don’t need a Business Coach”

Thanks Ray

I was also very impressed with Ray’s ability to adapt to our business’ needs, helping to build a strategic plan that focused on a specific target market.  Ray’s insightful conclusions helped me to understand our opportunities and positioning in the construction industry.

Ray’s support, guidance and expertise as we transitioned to a new company identity were indispensable, helping the company lay the foundation for a more formal, sustainable and professional future.

As a direct result of Ray’s work and guidance the company’s net profit has increased 400%!!  I couldn’t have made the decisions I wanted to make without this process – it gave me clarity, focus and alignment that was so important to maximise our returns.  I now look forward to the future and a continued relationship with Ray Strongman.

Dear Ray,

We have employed your services for some 2 & ½ years and I am delighted to provide my testimony here that others may consider the benefits; both in their business and their personal lives.

In a business sense, through this time we have adopted measures and processes which give our business the strength to manage the day to day stresses of everyday activity yet still allowing us to focus on the things that make our business grow; one of the many challenges we as business owners all struggle to attain. Our Organizational structure is better defined providing staff with certainty of their role and arming them with the knowledge to achieve our set targets. Our staff regularly comment on the enjoyment they have when coming to work at Rosebud Stationery without prompting and their positive focus means negativity has no hold in our business. Targets are regularly achieved with positive effect on our workforce and as all processes are tested and measured, we don’t get bound up in pursuing those that don’t.

Our other store, Westernport Office Supplies now also employs Rays services and I can note the difference in the professionalism our Manager there now applies to all matters. The staff there are likewise focused and have a hunger and passion to achieve our business goals as they now are part of the equation and the outcome. The benefits are so noticeable, one of our former Partners was prompted to comment on the positive changes that has occurred within their Store Manager. We no longer ‘Manage by crisis’, but collectively seek solutions that enable us to resolve all matters without abdicating responsibility for the task. The use of your DISC programme to evaluate potential employees has improved the quality of our workforce and recruitment is no longer ‘best guess’ or hit and miss, but applied in a logical way you should look for a potential candidate; ‘does this person have the attributes, talents and personality to make them suitable for the role?’

In a personal sense, I also have to thank Ray for the work I have done with him as it has no doubt made a substantial difference to the way I now react to adversity in life as I now do in business. This year I was threatened with a serious illness and through it all I was able to focus on providing the team with the requisite resources to our success continues as a consequence, I have now a Shop Manager any business would be proud of. Amanda, now with Ray’s contribution in my absence, has flowered into a strong, resourceful, considerate and forward focused Manager, without whom I have no certainty my business would have survived, let alone continued to prosper. At the same time Ray personally kept contact with me through my illness encouraging me not to ‘let things go’, but to focus on plans for my return later this year and I am indebted to him for the change in me. I would go so far as to say that with any certainty 2 ½ years ago I would have felt so strong and confident within myself that had the same circumstance befallen me I would have stood up to it as well as I have.

I have no hesitation in recommending Ray Strongman to any business owner who wants to take on their existing and future challenges, grow, prosper and to achieve their potential.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Brown
Proprietor
