Read What Just a Couple of businesses are saying..

I thought the 'How To Write A Business Plan Course' was excellent, I enjoyed the instruction, the discussion and by the end of the end of the course I had a much clearer sequence of events for getting my business off the ground.  It should also be noted that this course provides the activities that once completed correctly will set the conditions for a successfully run business.

By Joe O'Connor HM Arm Forces

I'd like to say how impressed I was with Sheila's professionalism, business acumen and experience. She was completely focused on our business and the areas that we should be concentrating on (which was totally in tune with my own projections and action plan for the Coffee Shop). She also brought one or two new ideas in that I hadn't thought of which I could see immediately would benefit The Coffee Shop.She listened attentively and gave us relevant feedback and advice without wasting time. I have total confidence in her ability and skills and I feel that her input will make a marked improvement for the business.We left the meeting with many action points and found that the meeting has given us the drive and enthusiasm to move the business forward again as this area had stagnated over the last year.

Hi Just to say thank you very much for a fantastic workshop yesterday. It has definitely fired me up to get going and be much more positive and proactive. I even let a very aggressive moment pass this morning - working already!!! Once again, thank you very much and I look forward to our paths hopefully crossing in the future. With kind regards.

This is to say THANK YOU for recommending Sheila Elliott to me as a mentor. She made a great difference to my business. She held my hand - obviously not literally - through the tendering process and as a result I have managed to win a sub contract from xxxxxxxxxxx (removed for confidentiality) to refurbish their 'voids'. She helped me with my business plan, my various policies, method statement and risk assessment. I applied to xxxxxxxxx (name of the company removed for confidentiality) with a renewed confidence which really worked.

I have been in business for over 7 years and in that time had considered tendering for Public sector contracts but did not feel I had the know-how to put something meaningful together. The information, tips and support provided by BSS was invaluable in bridging this gap and giving me the confidence to put in my first application early this year. I was very pleased that this application was successful thanks to BSS, and I look forward to more successes with their help.

Dear Sheila,
One thing that I admire about you and that is your integrity. I have met many so called coaches who perhaps do not have the integrity which I go by and it is so admirable to find someone who does. What I like about your talks are the frankness and spontaneity. I feel that it grips the audience and keep them fixed. Your book is a real surprise, well written and versed I feel that I am reading a book by Steve Covey. I am a professional photographer and you are a joy to work with, listen to and read. Keep up the excellent work.

~Darren St Mart Photographer & Business Owner

Sheila is a fantastic speaker!
We were all captivated by her wit and wisdom. She certainly exceeded our expectations as her presence on stage lifted the energy of our audience; this derives from her understanding of psychology and helping people to unlock their true potential. We’re very excited about her coming back to enlighten us again!”

A very informative workshop which was presented in a very vibrant uplifting manner; not only was the mundane made interesting, it was an insightful look at how to deal with bureaucracy, I left feeling up beat and ready to secure bids.

Michael Smith Purple Results Limited

Thanks for a great and really informative day, during the bidding successfully for public sector contract workshop. I was surprised how much was covered in the session without any feeling of rushing. Additionally it was great to spend the day with such a vibrant mix of people and pool ideas and knowledge. I have already recommended this workshop to my colleagues and have no doubt they will benefit from attendance.

For a business book it was enjoyable reading - mainly because it's so simple to implement the information. Sheila spoke from a personal and passionate view point which made the book readable.

I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to her in the future.
