Within the first 15 minutes of meeting Warren, he gave my business partner and me more advice and insights into our young company than any management book I’d ever read. Hiring him was an easy decision. The advice and guidance from Warren as my business coach continues to deliver enormous value – and often makes its way into the advice I provide my own management team and direct reports. I recommend Warren to anyone looking to grow their business.
Our business was doing around 35M in sales and we had a crazy goal (and one we were afraid of) to grow that to 70M. Long story,short, with Warren’s coaching we hit that number. His advice, leadership, mentorship, humour, authenticity and ability to understand my challenges helped me immeasurably in growing from my then Co-Vice President Status to Co-President and Majority Shareholder to Co- CEO and Full Ownership of our business today. Warren’s leadership has not only been a huge “wind-beneath-my-wings” but he has managed to take my naysayer partner and transform him into the guy who says…”Let’s book a session with Warren, we need to do some growing and make some changes to our business”!
When I first met Warren, I had other professional advisors urging me to pursue one course of action. By asking some intelligent questions and doing some fast but powerful financial analysis, Warren quickly demonstrated the incredible lost opportunity, in the range of millions of dollars, that course would have cost me. By making that smart decision, we’re now generating more than $25,000/day in sales we otherwise would not have had. Since then, he has introduced discipline into our planning and he has helped our team become fully engaged and motivated around a set of inspiring values. In short, he’s a genius.
Warren has assisted us in every facet of our business. Warren has worked with the entire team to stand back and take a look at the entire flow of business – from sales to operations to post events to both streamline our efficiencies and in the end make us more profitable. In addition, his insight and objectivity have helped me immensely when seeking new perspectives. His combination of business experience and wisdom makes Warren a huge asset to any small business with high growth objectives.
