We have no hesitation in recommending Christine and Shifting Focus Business Consulting to you.
Christine works with the utmost integrity in everything she does, she has turned our business association around from being a small group of overworked and stressed out business people, to being a really well functioning organised team. I have found her to be honest, reliable, hard working, conscientious and courteous at all times.
Christine has taken on the role of CBA’s funding co-ordinator; Christine has secured additional funding streams that have enabled initiatives to occur; initiatives that would never have got off the ground if Christine hadn’t doggedly researched and then strategically targeted certain funders.
Christine has a wide range of skills; accountancy, secretarial, business development, mentoring, and strategic and business planning; she is an asset to our business association; she is always cheerful and willing to assist me and the rest of the executive members with any task that will forward the CBA with what we are trying to achieve.
With her wealth of knowledge and experience, Christine taught me everything I need to know about running and growing my own business successfully.
She provided me with a fine tool-box full of strategies, formulas, good advice and tips and tricks. In explaining the many choices available, the possible consequences for each choice and how to stay in control of the situation, she gave me a clear sense of direction and the confidence to meet every challenge on my way.
I was impressed with her flexibility in adjusting the learning-by-doing lessons to the actual needs of my business at the time, as well as with her foresight into future needs and the practical ways in which she supported my endeavours. The warmth and patience of her teaching style put me at ease. At no time did I feel under pressure, I found my homework useful and interesting and enjoyed very much working with her.
I would not hesitate to consult her expertise again and I highly recommend her service. She got me from an anxious state of “Did-I-bite-off-more-than-I-can-chew?” to a confident “Of-course-I-can-do-this!”
