Testimonials

“We found Steve’s advice and guidance to be first class. His experience and depth of knowledge was of the highest order. It’s a massive help to have an outsider’s ideas and suggestions to how we can improve and increase our business as on occasions we can be too close to the business to see what really needs to be done.

Steve’s help has been invaluable and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs this kind of input into their business.”

Danny Hirschberger

Director, Novelties Direct Ltd


“Steve has worked closely with our advertising sales team and has provided guidance and advice that has led to improved targeting of sales prospects and improved sales procedures. Steve has also provided advice on potential supplier cost savings.

We have been pleased with the value of the support that Steve has provided and hope to use his services again in the future.”

Steve has been our business adviser for over 10 years and has provided invaluable practical support and advice which has helped us to build our turnover and profitability significantly during that time.

Steve has personally provided us with support to set up financial management systems and to draw up a business plan whose goals and objectives still guide us today. He was responsible for managing the introduction of our first website and identified the correct website designer to ensure the site was launched effectively.

He has also provided us with Sales and Marketing advice and has delivered personal sales training to staff which has improved their ability to follow up sales leads. His experience and knowledge in terms of Employment Legislation and best HR practice has also provided us with an effective ‘safety net’ when staffing issues have arisen.

On a personal note I have always found Steve to be an excellent sounding board for ideas and I have always felt comfortable discussing confidential details of the business with him.

Steve has also been able to introduce us to a number of specialist consultants to help with issues as diverse as IT and Management Training.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve as a business advisor.

MD, Middlesex Flooring


Steve has worked on a consultancy basis with our company for over 10 years and has helped us through good times and bad.

Initially we engaged Steve to help us develop sales and marketing activity and were most impressed when our first direct mail campaign led to the acquisition of 20 new clients.

Since then Steve has provided practical support and guidance in developing our marketing messages and has introduced us to a number of specialist marketing companies who have helped us produce a customer newsletter and a modern effective website.

Steve currently produces our monthly management figures and provides valuable input at our monthly financial management meetings.

Steve is extremely proactive and regularly provides us with ideas and challenges.

He has played a big part in increasing our turnover and profitability and I would recommend him as a business advisor who has a very wide range of skills and experience that are ideally suited to the small business environment.

“PBA’s advice has been exceedingly helpful to Hansons. Our sales have rocketed and the ongoing training has improved our business skills significantly. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.”

Ian Hanson

Director, Hansons the Caterers


“PBA have been helping us to develop our marketing and have managed direct mail campaigns on our behalf designing and mailing postcards to promote our corporate catering services.

The last campaign led directly to the acquisition of a major new client who said the postcard was lovely and really caught their eye – a fantastic return for a cost of just 37p for printing and mailing each postcard – less than the cost of a stamp!”
