I first meet Nigel through the Business Mentors program in a period where our business had to be restructured whilst buying out an active partner Nigel provided a clear path through this difficult transition.  We have engaged Nigel through Chrysalis Enterprise on an on-going basis to provide independent advice and strategic path as the business grows.

As a Managing Director Nigel gives clarity to the different aspects of running a small business & tools to make the changes required as business has to keep evolving ‚Äď Evolution ‚Äď not revolution.

I retained Nigel as a consultant to assist on a Church Management Support project.  Throughout the project Nigel proved to be knowledgeable in employment matters and practical in research, advice and project management.  He was able to add value by applying his knowledge specifically to a church environment and I have no doubt he could do the same for the industries of potential future customers of his consultancy.....

The church continues to seek Nigel's advice on an ad hoc basis and I have no hesitation in recommending his services in a similar consultancy role.

I attended the project management workshop run by Nigel Teal in September 2013.  The workshop was facilitated in a manner that was welcoming and supportive.  We were a small team that shared ideas and projects to gain input and knowledge from each team member.

Since I have attended the course, I have used many of the skills I learnt. I have found my ability to plan a work breakdown structure and follow a critical path to be invaluable within my role.

Nigel has been my business mentor since 2013 and has helped me regain my confidence in my business and more importantly my ability to run my company as a Director, not a worker.  He has enabled me to build my communication with my clients and to set up planning strategies that will be vital to the on going development of my business. He quickly understood my needs and suggested simple ideas for me to try and lots of encouragement. With Nigel's support I now feel I have a sound base from which I can grow my company and provide an excellent service to my clients. Thanks Nigel.

This course certainly helped me to make sense of a whole mess of thoughts around succession planning and exit strategy that I had been battling with for the last 12 months or more. Nigel was able to help me break a big scary picture down into more manageable pieces and then make a step by step plan, with a time frame for completion. It gave me a great starting point for discussion with my business partner and other business professionals.

We have found it so valuable to have an independent set of ears and eyes looking at our business and helping us to find a way through some problems. Nigel takes the time to really get to know the challenges you are facing in business and offers a fresh perspective to help find solutions.
