If you are in a leadership position, one of the big challenges is getting more from less. What Chris has brought to me personally and to Everards is to be efficient in my thinking, to ensure I prioritise with my team, evaluate very clearly what we are doing and as a result continuously grow. In these economic times, it would be easy to look at an engagement with Chris as a cost. I would encourage anybody to look upon it as an investment in that you will achieve more from less and will only understand what that means for you personally and your business more broadly via that engagement. For anyone out there looking to achieve more for less, looking to increase their profitability and value of their business, then Chris is a man to work with. He will deliver huge added value to your business.
