What People Say

“Since bringing in coaches to help develop our skills, the turnover in our accountancy business has seen a steady increase and we are handling a much better quality of work with good clients. I would estimate that in the last 12 months, we have increased new work by 10 per cent over last year. In our newer financial services business, a more focused way of operating has seen turnover increase by 200 per cent and we are all working less hours.”
> Gordon Bull, Senior Partner, Bryden Johnson

“Just to say thank you again for one of the best 24 hours (in a work context!) I've had in - I don't know how long. I don't know where to start”
> Linda Williams, Practice Director, Wedlake Bell

“Shirlaws has worked with us over the past two years with excellent results. Their approach has helped me with some high level strategic issues faced by our business as well as helping to create the right cultural and commercial balance”
> Peter Erskine, Chairman and Chief Executive, Telefonica O2

“As lawyers we tend to stay focused on the exercise of our professional skills. It has been important for us to give time to direct the culture of the firm and how we wish to be perceived, both internally and externally. Similarly it has been important for us to develop our strategic, commercial and management skills. Having done this we are now starting to maximise the valuable resources we have in house, and the full commercial potential of the firm.”
> Hugh Middlemass, Managing Partner, Brooke North LLP

“The positioning project changed us a lot. Before we took this on, clients thought we did something else, it made us realise how confused they were about what we do. Now they’re really clear and new clients are so easy to bring on as it’s really easy for them to understand what we do now so the sales process is very easy.”
> Kaye Taylor, SK Chase

“It’s amazing, it’s a completely different business to what it was pre-Shirlaws. The coaching has gone in to personal stuff for me too which has been incredible and made me realise that by getting ‘me’ right, I can get the business right.”
> Jo Daley, Elle Events

“It’s been enjoyable, and a lot of fun. The coaching’s given me more confidence and less stress. It’s always a lot of fun when Ed comes in, I never get bored. I get inspired."
> Alex Craster, CEO, Craster Woodworking

"Shirlaws have been integral to my business for over 6 years, providing a fresh perspective on my strategy and operations, and helping to keep me accountable. The Shirlaws tools and coaching have helped us triple our turnover and build a strong, sustainable business with a solid team and diversified client list"
> Matthew Cunnen, Founder, Satsuma Solutions
