We started Sussex Produce in 2007 in a small shop and from the outset we developed a fantastic customer following. On the way to winning numerous awards we moved to a much larger store in 2011. We soon discovered that we had gone from running a very successful shop to managing a rapidly expanding business, with 40 staff, scores of suppliers, a cafe and a incredible increase in complexity as we grew.
Working with Nigel helps me to stop for a few hours and think about where the businesses going. We look at all areas and decide on what is the biggest priorities and best opportunities for the business to focus on.
Nigel’s advice, and challenges together with a wealth of useful contacts gives me a great framework to make sure that I always work smarter and not just harder.
