I’d recommend him to anyone who is looking for real strategic advice and guidance that comes with practical and clear deliverables.

Cindy Philips

”Steve and team have worked really hard to understand our aspirations and the people we 'want to reach out to'. We agreed targets we would see as a success to our business and we have exceeded these to date and within Steve's original budget forecast. Great management reports into us and not afraid to nudge us back on track when we veer a little off course from Steve's original plan! Would highly recommend!"
