  • It was brilliant going through the forecasts with you yesterday. You made things simple to follow and discussing the 3-4 key areas without getting bogged down in detail was really helpful. I came away with a much better understanding of the way forward and a clear idea of where we need to focus in order to beat the forecasts.  Thank you so much!

    Laura Roberts, General Manager - WHC Hire Services Ltd
  • Since being introduced to Will a couple of years ago, we have worked together on all aspects of our business. As a direct result of this work, whilst Covid-19 is presenting challenges, we are facing these from a position of strength and feel very positive about the future. By chatting to Will on regular video calls or recording actions and plans using the online coaching portal, we get help when we need it and we stay focused on and accountable for doing what needs to be done. To anyone concerned about the future, I recommend Will and his approach very highly.

  • Randall & Payne produced cashflow forecasts based on our accounts and projected income that were used by the bank to approve a business loan. This will enable us to add to our portfolio of properties within the company and expand the services we can offer. A big thanks to Will and the team.

    Dr Liam Gilby, Chief Financial Officer - D & L Support Ltd
  • We just want to say a huge thank you to Will Abbott on behalf of us both for his incredible diligence, advice and support over the last 10 years or so.  Will provided excellent advice in a friendly way, that steered us through some pretty tricky situations over the years, which I’m sure he will recall.  And we had some fun along the way!

    Bridgette & Martyn Smith - retired business owners
  • Coming from a long established, family business I found the EPIC Business Leaders Group really refreshing. I benefited greatly from both the interaction with other business leaders, finding I was not alone in many of my challenges, as well as from the presentations and sessions on strategic thinking, planning and goal setting. It was really great to learn techniques which were quick to apply in the workplace. My confidence in leading at work and improved strategic thinking have led to a number of changes for the better.

    Sally Green, Managing Director, Calinnova Ltd
  • Every company, when it reaches a certain size or age, needs clear reflection and guidance on what it offers and how it can plan for future growth from a detached external source. Will Abbott has provided that important source of management direction and expertise for three years in a way that a ‘non-exec’ director would add value.

    Ian Heather – Heather Resource Management Ltd
  • The Partners and team at Randall & Payne simply gave us what we needed to turn our plans into reality. We are excited about the future and are already working with them on the next three-year plan.
