Quotes from some LBS customers:


"Karl approached me at the start of 2014 offering a variety of services which included business development, company infrastructure and business assistance. With the exception of a Summer break due to excessive work, I have continued to use Karl's services.



In summary, Karl has been excellent at not only obtaining new clients, but managing and meeting expectation of existing clients. In addition, Karl always delivery 100% to his word and organizes me in an efficient and effective manner and as a small business, he has taken away work which is not akin to my skillsets. This has given me the confidence to run my business but I know that someone has always got my back covered".


"In the first month of activity, you have paid for your services at least tenfold!"


"Thank you for your services Karl; through your input we gained access to a number of new customers and projects as well as managing existing quotations through to fruition.


Although I was dubious about the effectiveness of business development in general; I must say that for future campaigns I would have no hesitation in using your services".


Karl has an extensive entrepreneurial background working in multiple industries leaving a unequivocal record for high impact business development, control, growth, sustainability and stability.


He has worked with small to medium enterprises for over 15 years developing new and existing businesses to achieve their respective financial goals.
