Founder and CEO Brio Group
"I have always known 'why' I want to build my business, but I realised I didn't know the strategic steps to take in order to achieve this goal within my timeframe. In the first few months of working with Jacob, I have clarity on each of the steps I need to take and an action plan I am now well on the way to implementing."

"The value that Jacob added to our business is twofold. He lives the bigger game bringing a strong strategic perspective together with the ability to build process and structure to support the implementation of the strategy. Secondly his energy - he is always happy, always sees the positive and always happy to get his sleeves rolled up and get stuck in. He is a real asset to any business that has a passion to grow and make a difference."
