This is a note from both of the Directors at MacArthur Recruitment, Steph and myself, thanking you for repeatedly doing a great job on helping us when we were in our business formation stages and since then.
Although I had a number of years of experience in recruitment and Steph in business, neither of us had ever formed or run a company. Peter helped us rationalise what we wanted and needed to do, giving us the tools and vision to come out of the business and look at it strategically as well as working in the business day-to-day. We refer back to his teachings regularly. Peter is a great asset to Cumbrian businesses, providing great knowledge transfer and letting you realise you have it in you to be successful.
We’re very happy to recommend Peter to new and existing companies and will utilise his services again.
My business has taken huge leaps forward under Peter's guidance. Providing support, advice and tools that compliment my management style, he helps put theory into practice and move forward strategic business plans. A superb return on investment, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
I know the needs of each individual business will be different, but Peter definitely listened to my needs, the concerns of our staff, the structure of the business and then implemented a plan to take us forward, solving any problems or objections along the way.
As a family business we continued to grow to the point where we employed 12 members of staff, but had reached a position where we needed help with restructuring. After meeting Peter at one of the events he organises I enlisted his support.
Peter’s help over the last couple of years has been invaluable and he has helped me to reorganise the structure of the business, which initially there was great resistance to from existing members of staff. We have managed to do this without losing any of these valuable personnel.
Peter has made a considerable contribution to this outcome and we are currently working with Peter to move onto the next stage.
I regard the money we have spent with Peter as being money very well spent, and after the initial engagement period I was very impressed with his services.
After being introduced to Peter by a peer in a business incubator, we started a project to prepare a strategic plan to guide us through a major change in our distribution strategy. We began with a thorough strategic review that helped us get clear on the business vision, mission and values. Peter brought a highly organised and rigorous process to help us define our aims and objectives, identify quick wins and keep major projects on track. To handle the anticipated growth, Peter helped us identify the corporate structure needed to meet our goals and assisted in the hiring of a key employee. We continued working with Peter to monitor and update the strategy, which has been very helpful in identifying key issues. Every business needs a Peter on their side!
Our family business has grown significantly over the last few years and a big part of that is thanks to Peter’s invaluable experience and input. He has supported us with reviewing business processes, mapping and defining process improvement, establishing business structure, defining roles and responsibilities and has given support with recruitment; all with the goal of helping our businesses grow.
He is approachable, succinct and always adds value. We consider him a part of our team and would highly recommend him without hesitation
