“As well as speeding up our journey towards our goal, working with Matt has given us the confidence to make that goal bigger, whilst creating a better work life balance whilst we work towards it. Life is good.”
Customer: Clare Garrod
Company: Stonewall Security
Started working with Matt: February 2016
Services used: 121 Coaching, Growth Club
Stonewall Security was originally run by two brothers, one of whom is Clare’s partner, Martin. Clare bought out Martin’s brother, and now runs the business with Martin. The business was intended to create a nest egg for the couple, and things needed to change significantly if that was going to be achieved.
Having worked with Matt for a year, Clare has seen big differences already. In one year Matt’s coaching has delivered a 4000% return on investment, helping Stonewall to achieve:
41% increase in monthly turnover
550% increase in business value
50% increase in staff numbers
As far as Clare is concerned, Matt’s biggest contribution to her ongoing success is creating a change in her mindset around the business financials and general accountability.
“I never felt that I was particularly good with business numbers, and so I didn’t pay them the attention that they needed. Previously, I’d have thought we were doing OK, and then potentially had a shock at the end of the year when the accounts were completed. Now I have a close eye on the financials all the time. At any point I know the profits, the cash-flow situation and the sales forecast. It makes a big difference. I can make decisions quickly, knowing the financial impact, and this is great for our business. “
And it’s not just the finances where Stonewall Security are more focussed.
“Matt keeps me accountable. I have lots of ideas, but Matt makes sure that if I start something, I see it through to completion. It means I make effective use of more of my time, and we reap the benefits of the ALL of the work that I do. As far as the long term is concerned, we always felt that we had a fairly clear idea of what we wanted to achieve, but we now know exactly how we’re going to get there. Not only that, but as well as speeding up our journey towards our goal, working with Matt has given us the confidence to make that goal bigger, whilst creating a better work / life balance whilst we work towards it. Life is good.”
