“Gilly’s offering is differentiated from others by being action-orientated: this isn’t about sitting in meeting rooms brainstorming or chatting about strategy. She is a hands-on and energetic partner who will grab you by the scruff of the neck, shake you into action, and deliver real tangible change. Every action has a date or deadline, a person accountable. Her approach works – and it’s now a foundational part of how we operate."

Andrew Edwards, Managing Director

"My eyes have been opened to a more effective 'consultative' way of communicating with my customers. I have over 5 years sales experiences and have never seen such 'thinking outside the box' training. The process is easy to follow with the help of Gilly's guidance and patience and I would certainly recommend her to anyone."
