"We’ve worked with John for 6 years. Initially to help build a strategic plan for our next growth phase but as time has gone on, and we’ve executed those plans his knowledge and skillset have been absolutely invaluable as we have taken on additional opportunities.
John’s expertise come from historical success of building and selling businesses himself, this means his contact list is long but he also understands from first hand experience the day to challenges business owners face. I find this of particular value as we constantly work on the balance between working on strategic direction and also ensuring core business is controlled and on track.
John is a trusted non executive of our business and has significantly contributed to the growth and success of our business over the time we have worked together."
"I have worked with JFP for many years and without their help I don’t think my business would have survived to this day. There have been some challenging times over this period of time where some difficult decisions have had to be made. But during this time we have also had a lot of fun – business with a smile!
Being a sole owner of a business in tough times can be a very lonely place. During those times in particular JFPs enthusiasm and support has been priceless – having somebody to act as a soundboard and advise me on all pressing issues within the business gave me the confidence to move forward and tackle the problems in a professional, positive manner. In this respect JFP have become my business confidante and I still now find myself making random mental notes to pick their brains and ‘run that one past JFP next time’.
Looking back now I can clearly see the benefits of implementing JFP’s expertise. My business moved from a relative position of weakness to one of control and strength within a thriving environment within a short space of time. And it is probably fair to say that with JFP’s help I am a much better businessman now than I was all those years ago…
I am now also a fully signed up member of the ‘Failing to plan is planning to fail’ club!"

"From our 1st meeting with JFP we were able to understand what we needed as a young business. JFP helped us double our turnover within a year and have been providing us with support ever since.
We have had a number of challenges in the last 6 years. John’s knowledge and skillset have been absolutely invaluable in guiding us along the way, helping us to handle all of these challenges successfully. Having a regular check in with John, through Board Meetings, has helped us keep on top of our admin and his guidance on our figures and forecasts has been exceptional. Above all he insisted on us having a Shareholder Agreement from the outset, which has proven to be invaluable as we have met these challenges and taken on additional opportunities. I would not hesitate to recommend him in the non exec role to any SME."
"Working with John on our project was a real pleasure and proved vital in the ultimate conclusion. To be able to turn to an experienced individual of John’s calibre was invaluable and reassuring at the same time."
