Christine Lockie

“Garry has the ability to work effectively with a wide group of personalities and get the best from everyone toward a shared goal.  He has that rare combination of knowledge and skill coupled with tact, motivational power, honesty and the ability to hold people accountable which is refreshing in a world bursting with “business consultants” who provided a “one plan fits all”. 

Christine Lockie, Director, Redfort Group Ltd. 

Peter Jenkins

“Garry provides excellent strategic education and guidance to our entire management team. He makes them think outside their daily competencies to take a higher level view of the business and direction we are taking. We have seen positive results and contacts as a result of Garry’s training. We intend to continue meeting with him on a regular basis to maintain the focus and achieve our growth goals.”

Peter Jenkins, Managing Director, Flexware Ltd. 

Alan White

“Garry’s methodical approach to business coaching gave us clarity on areas that needed addressing and generated results that we were looking for. Garry quickly understood the nature of our business and how we could further extend value. His unique approach got us to dig deep, make us ask the serious questions and then worked with us to establish the answers. 

Alan White, Managing Director, White Design 

Charles Norwood

“As a Director of Tekron, Garry helped develop my skills as a technology company CEO  over a number of years. He is always a very calm voice of reason and can be relied on to give a well thought-through opinion. Often, in a tricky situation, I would give Garry a call and he would calmly and methodically talk it through with me until a clear way forward presented itself. If you are looking for an intelligent, commercially strong, well-connected business professional, Garry is the ideal person.”

Charles Norwood, CEO, Tekron International Ltd. 

Genevieve Knights

“It has been a great pleasure working with Garry who has been mentoring my business since February 2014. Often you can feel isolated in business and unsure of the decisions you are making. Garry came on board and helped me set realistic sales targets and strategies to handle hurdles. He has been a great sounding board for problem-solving and we even get to have a few laughs along the way. His input into streamlining a course of action has been invaluable to me and I would, without any hesitation, highly recommend his services to any business owner.”

Genevieve Knights, Managing Director, Genevieve’s
