Client Stories

Are we as good as we say we are? Don’t take our word for it … read through our latest client success stories.

Sam Palmer
Founder of Midlife Makeover

Helped me to dig deep into the commercial aspects of my business, unpicking my expenditure and articulating the true value I was offering.

It’s given me the space and encouragement to work on my vision. The coaching team have the knack of being both relaxed and focused – and know exactly when to challenge and question me. I have far greater clarity from being able to bring ideas and thoughts to the calls, and to talk through my ideas and get opinions. It’s a safe space to be part of.

I’ve also been given a reason to be accountable. Momentum gives you the tools to learn more about your business and the opportunity to get alternative and external views on those challenges you might otherwise be working through on your own – and that’s invaluable.

A big shift in my business in a relatively short space of time and a true generosity of spirit in the group.

I already had a range of packaged services, but it became apparent my fee structure failed to reflect my true value. I increased my prices significantly and, by making an offer to current clients, have been able to successfully transition them to the new pricing model.

This was important and impactful, but the biggest impact to date has been on my mindset and my confidence in what I can achieve. It’s meant that I have started to have longer and broader tech conversations with my clients which not only helps to move me to where I want to be, but also are really well received by my clients. It is what many have been wanting and waiting for!

Jason Kruger
Online Marketing Without The Trauma

From solopreneur to MD of a training consultancy and leading the way for gender equality in the workplace

I felt that I needed to have someone externally to talk things through with; discuss the strategic direction of my business and be challenged around the right things to do. Getting specific help on deciding to move ahead with my podcast was immensely helpful and helped me speed up the thinking process of how to position it and get the content right before getting stuck into the doing of it.

I can honestly say that in eighteen months I grew the most I have ever grown in my career. The work I did with the coaching team was instrumental in this. The stretch and support from someone saying “you really can do this” was incredible.

Joy Burnford
MD of My Confidence Matters

Stepped into the role of the CEO & hired top talent team to scale business

Joining Momentum helped me address some of the trickier areas that I might have otherwise ignored. I was helped to spot signs of hazards long before I reach them, so I can take action. My work in Momentum has highlighted some of the gaps in knowledge of running a bigger business, with a different operating model.

It was the prompt I needed to dig deeper and be able to access the data I need to make decisions. Now, just being in control of the model and the important figures makes me feel more like the sort of person who is strategic. I’ve been able to focus on the right things as CEO and leader of my business.

Elaine Gosden
CEO of Blue Gnu Consulting Ltd

Highest grossing revenue month ever in first year of Momentum

Momentum provides the balance of practical support and know-how, with accountability, planning and process. It has given me the space to refine and define my vision, made me crystal clear about who I want to work with – and how – and the practical steps I need to take. It has made me accountable, given me a support network, challenged me and held me high in celebration.

I had my highest grossing revenue month ever in my first year in Momentum – and a 10% growth in sales across the year which took me across the VAT threshold. I am forecasting a further 30% growth this year. But the crucial measure for a sustainable business is profit. Profit has increased tenfold. I also now attract more of my ideal client and more of the work I want to do.

Emma Insley
CEO Emma Insley Consulting Ltd

Momentum is the engine behind my revenue growth; best revenue quarter I’ve ever experienced.

If I were to describe my approach pre-Momentum, I was playing at working for myself. Now I really feel master of my destination. This experience has been instrumental in helping me formulate the marketing for my own white paper service, and I am just at the end of the best revenue quarter I’ve ever experienced and sold up all my available time from now until the end of the year so Momentum really has taken me to the next level.

Being part of Momentum has shown me to lift my head up from the day-to-day doing and keep my eye on the bigger picture. I know now what I want to be and what I stand for. It sounds so simple but it's hugely powerful. 

Lois Dabrowski
Specialist in Marketing to HR

The right balance of structure and emotional support for strong growth.

Momentum became the scaffolding that supported me, allowing me to grow personally and express the person I’ve become as I developed my brand. I now have clear business processes, terms of service and a solid fee structure in place to support my work.

For me, Momentum has struck the perfect balance between practical structure and processes, as well as the emotional support needed for strong growth.

Kirsty Innes
Purpose & Brand Consultant

Less hours, less stress and increased profitability

I was fire fighting, dealing with stuff as it came along. I didn’t have any plan in place and was working on whatever was on my desk. The first Momentum cycle taught me so much about what I wasn’t doing ‘right’. By the time I did the second planning cycle, I really got into the rhythm of the process and understood that I needed to give myself time to follow through.

I now feel strong, even more confident, and proud of what I do and the value that it adds, and for that, I feel great. I have learned to think like a CEO and make decisions to help me be more sustainable for the future.
