“Multitude of New Opportunities”

“Quite often, when running a business, a business owner becomes so embroiled in the day to day stuff that they can’t see the wood for the trees. Ann helped me to overcome these challenges, restructure my diary and aim directly at my long term goals; the results of which are evident by the multitude of new opportunities which have suddenly become apparent.”

Signal Signs – Game Changing Business Plan to Increase Profits
I own a successful and thriving design & signage business and always look for new and innovative ways to build and grow my business. While we had several pieces of the puzzle already in place, we now see numerous additional opportunities in our business that we are now aggressively pursuing and implementing. Ann has helped our company focus its efforts on the more profitable sections of the company while slowly weeding out the aspects that are more time absorbing and not as worthwhile. Not only do these efforts help strengthen our relationships with our top customers but lays out a long term game plan that we can focus on.
I’m happy to recommend Ann to anyone that wants to improve their business and grow profits.”

“Effective Way to Focus and Deliver Results”

When I first began working with Ann from Infinite People Solutions I was so immersed in the company IT was getting destructive. Ann helped put my responsibilities, profits and product into perspective. SUKI TEA is now being exported to 7 countries including a prestigious café in Tokyo as I’m now working smarter, not harder. I can’t say enough about all the help she has provided me with. I reclaimed my creative buzz and feel like I have my life back.

Created Profit Growth Targets and Pushed my Business Forward

When I first met Ann, what immediately struck me was her straight-talking no-nonsense approach to business. I have met many consultants over the years who use language and processes that are vague, impractical and foolishly optimistic. Ann is the total opposite of this, she helped me put in place proper systems for my business to ensure profit growth targets and pushed my business forward. She is a constant source of help, support and inspiration and since working with Ann I have seen hugely positive results.

Ann has transformed our business beyond our expectations our  revenues have shot up

Our business was growing and I felt that we needed business management expertise to manage our transition into a larger company. Bringing in Ann has transformed our company beyond our expectations. We now have an in depth understanding of our profitability and have built a highly motivated team. We are in the process of releasing time for ourselves by creating powerful systems that work for us and our clients. Our revenues since we started have shot up xxx% and we have already revised our targets upwards. We have identified what we need to measure in the business and most importantly, how to measure it. We have grown in confidence – our whole experience has been very positive and has allowed us to offer our clients differentiated quality and extremely high standards.

“Achieve Profitable Turnover”

“When we came to Ann Rodgers it was because we knew our business was capable of being more organized in the hope that we could achieve a more profitable turnover and iron out some time issues to getting things done. On a personal level, we both felt we had a lack of confidence in selling our business and our hesitance of moving forward was holding us back. Ann helped us develop that confidence by showing us that honest selling isn’t about arrogance or bravado, and showed us how to create a positive approach that enables us to aid our prospects and visualize the benefits of working with her expertise. We have only been working with Ann now for a short period of time but are already seeing positive prospects ahead and are looking forward to reaching many of the goals we have in store for our future with Ann’s influence and assistance.”
