Our members are stronger together
While previously sceptical on the benefits of a business mentor, I have now employed Ted's business coaching services for the past 2 years, and I have been proven wrong! Ted has directly and significantly contributed to our success at BoldType during our 1st year, enabling us to surpass many of our goals and targets. His advice, guidance, and most importantly, challenging questions have helped me succeed as a business owner, giving me the strength and confidence to achieve and overcome the inevitable hurdles and challenges. I look forward to the next two years working with Ted, knowing our investment will be repaid many times over.
Ted has a great ability to cut through the noise and identify the core issues holding you or your business back. His insights and actionable advice have consistently led to identifying strategies to implement. What sets Ted apart is his genuine commitment to his client's success. You can trust that working with Ted will be a professional experience and outcome-driven.
Being a start-up is an extremely difficult and turbulent time for any business. Through 1-1 coaching, Ted Robinson is extremely approachable, and has helped me navigate my own emotions, and the minefield that is opening a new business. After just 5 months, our business is going from strength to strength in a consistent and managed way, and I feel very confident about our future! The 1-1 coaching has stopped me chasing my own tail, and has also provided excellent business specific ideas and strategies. I look forward to many more TAB sessions!
I was initially recommended to Ted by another business acquaintance who had seen the benefits of his advice and mentoring with a view to addressing issues and achieving targets for his business.
Since working with Ted, I have experienced the same level of mentoring and my business has seen significant improvements in several areas of the business. In particular for our sales pipeline and leads management which was an area that we both agreed needed improvement and investment. The other benefit of working with a mentor like Ted is that he helps hold you accountable and helps you set defined actions ahead of future catchups and calls which are usually done over Zoom or over a coffee. I can wholeheartedly recommend to Ted to any business owner.
I have only known Ted for a short period of time, in that time he has already had a huge impact on me and the approach I take to my businesses - I cannot recommend enough working with Ted so if he wants to work with you - say yes! Looking forward to the many months and years to come working together - thank you Ted.
Event Specialists took the risky decision to commence working with Ted (and The Alternative Board) at the height of the Covid pandemic. Working in the event industry as we do this was quite a leap of faith; we see it as a good gamble. Throughout lock down Ted stayed with us, giving us focus and advise from new potential revenue streams through to how to manage the banks. He has provided us with practical advice, strategic direction and not to be underplayed he is a thoroughly nice bloke to work with.
