Jacqui Hogan’s business clients have included a wide variety of new-start businesses, IT businesses wanting to grow and organisations looking to review their strategies for stability or new ventures.
“Jacqui carried out a business review to help me focus on what the key issues were within the business. Having worked with consultants before I have often found that they end up focussing on relatively minor things or matters which are not really an issue within the business, perhaps working to their particular strengths rather than the needs of my business. Jacqui’s approach was different – she quickly identified those areas which could be ignored and then used a structured approach to help me focus on the key areas.” GJ, Owner, Jenner & Co
