My Testimonials

Charlotte Betteley
“Amanda was bought in to our company by our Directors to see how we could reignite the business. After meeting Amanda one to one for the first time she gave a positive feeling to me which made me feel alive for change. She identified I had low self-esteem and lost my way in life due to work and personal reasons.

During Amanda’s time with the business we would meet either every week or every other week. The first few occasions there were lots of tears (by me!) although I still left our meetings feeling positive, alive and ready for a challenge. I have chatted to Amanda about things I would never talk to others about, which she has given me an outside perspective on, she has recommended books to me that will stay with me for life and guide me in developing to my full potential, set me various tasks to get me thinking in the right way, also the simple things like making me listen to what people actually say and not to let my overthinking mind run away with me and think its meaning something else.

Amanda I cannot thank you enough and here’s to “My Best Year Yet!” which is all thanks to you.”

Caroline Peverett, Turner & Co

The standout feature of The Turnaround CEO is practicality. I have no doubt Amanda knows her business theory and has a wealth of experience too. However, when she works with me the complete focus is on me and my business issues and how these are going to be resolved or tackled specifically and practically. It’s personal. Everything feels tailored to what you need rather than a formula thats followed. It’s definitely not a one-size-fits-all approach.

There is nothing woolly and purely theoretical when working with the TTCEO; there are no reference to theories, just practical workouts that Amanda enables you to progress through. She gives you the direction and prodding to find your own solutions (so they’re the ones most likely to work for you1)

Working with Amanda does not have to change your life, if you don’t let it or want it to. But when someone with her experience and enthusiam is focused on you, your business and your role, your opportunities become so much more available and reachable.

Sandra Garlick, Woman Who…
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for sharing your open and honest story about your journey in business, and your personal challenges too.

It was so well received and probably one of our best events yet in terms of great speakers.”

Roger and Russell Timms, CJ Timms
“As a business we have been working with Amanda for the last 6 months. During this time we have looked at all areas of our business and have developed a business plan to take our business forward.

Our structure, prioritisation and our processes are all being reviewed which will no doubt have a massive impact on our business in terms of efficiencies, profits and our customer service.
Sales are on the increase with the added focus and the help and guidance by Amanda.

We have certainly found her to be more than a coach and has really helped with hands on help. Her knowledge of our business is a result of the time Amanda has spent on site with us and our staff, which has been very different to the approach taken by others.”

Sheron Cummins, Advance Recruitment

Amanda seems to be able to get to the core of what needs to shift within a leader to help change the culture of a company from within. After a tumultuous few years, Amanda has helped me to refocus and grow the business at a point where I wouldn’t have thought growth was possible. Her practical tips and advice have helped give me confidence to believe in myself and the team, resulting in increased turnover, defined priorities and better all-round performance of the business. Her flexible and tailored approach is perfectly matched to your unique business and with her, you can feel she is passionate about turning it around.

Adam Gillott, Three Point Design

The push you gave me to start getting out to develop new business has really helped, me as well as the company. My Sales for the year have exceeded those of others. And I am enjoying more client contact again, despite my reservations.

Others has grown into their roles which is allowing me extra time for Sales. All an exciting move for the business and something I believe needs to happen for the business to grow.
